Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy large skillet over medium heat.

Using small sharp knife, cut 2-inch-long slit in 1 side of each bread slice, cutting ¾ of way through bread and creating pocket that leaves 3 sides of bread intact.

Divide banana mixture equally among pockets in bread.

Pour into large glass baking dish.

Place bread in egg mixture; let soak 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Place almonds in shallow bowl.

Carefully remove bread from egg mixture and coat both sides with almonds.

Place bread on heavy large baking sheets.

Mix brown sugar, oats, flour and remaining 2 teaspoons cinnamon in medium bowl.

Add remaining ¼ cup butter and rub in, using fingertips, until moist clumps form.
