Remove from the pan and let cool.
Using a hand mixer, mix the breadcrumb mixture with the milk and sugar until combined.
Add in the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Mix until the flour is moistened.
Add the milk to the bowl of the mixer, beat until combined, then add the remaining ingredients.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until combined with the flour mixture.
Add this to the batter.
Add the chopped white chocolate and milk to both the flour and egg mixture.
Mix on medium speed until the mixture is smooth.
Add one tablespoon of the flour to each half of the batter and mix on low speed for 30 seconds.
Using a small, non-stick spray bottle, coat each slice of breadcrumber with the remaining flour mixture and then spray with a little more flour mixture, if desired.
Place the slices of bread crumbs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the bread crumb slices are lightly browned.
Remove the slices from the baking sheet and let them cool for about 15 minutes before slicing.
To serve, sprinkle the topping on each slice, drizzle the glazing over the bread, and drizzle with lemon juice.
If desired, you can sprinkle some chopped basil leaves on top of the glazed banana bread.
