Paradise French Toast

I really have to write up the recipe for this.  It was my favorite breakfast for a while in my pre-no-dairy-only-eat-what-is-good-for-you diet. I got it at a local diner and tried to throw it together. It was delicious. Not good for you by any means, but SO delicious.  My only regret was not toasting the coconut first. It's basically just french toast (to my credit it IS whole wheat french toast) topped with caramelized bananas, caramel, and coconut. Yum.
