French toast au chocolate

Last Sunday morning was warm and sunny, with the tree leaves turning yellow and orange, so an indulgent breakfast that captured that autumn feeling was needed! Herewith, my little indulgence...

6 slices of bread (I used woolies soy linseed low GI white bread but you can use any bread of your choice, actually brioche or fresh bakery white bread comes out much fluffier)
2 large eggs
1.5 tsp cinnamon powder
2-3 tsp raw cocoa powder (I used three because the one I have is not very strong)
4 tsp sugar
1 cup milk
3 tbsp Nutella
2 bananas sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil or spray n cook
A pinch of salt

Whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt and once beaten add the sugar, cinnamon, and cocoa. Whisk again until the ingredients have incorporated, then mix in the cup of milk. 
Grease a pan over medium heat with 1/3 of the oil and 1/3 of the butter, and let it heat slightly while you soak your first slice of bread in the milk mixture. The denser the bread (like the soy linseed), the more time you need to let it soak, turn to soak on both sides. Place the soaky bread slices in the pan, fitting in as many as you can comfortably flip and allow to brown slightly (about 3 mins on each side), very importantly, don't let them dry up!

Once ready, serve topped with the sliced banana and Nutella (about 1 tbsp for every two toasts or 1 tsp per toast).
