Morning Meanderings…. A Little Weekend Cooking of Peanut Butter French Toast


Sunday morning.


I have a low key day planned….  a few reviews to write, a little audio to listen to , and possibly a little painting in the house.  If all goes well, I will not have to leave the house at all today.

I do like that soooooo much.

Al and I are not big breakfast eaters but a friend recently told me about a way to make french toast with peanut butter.  Al loves all things peanut butter, so this morning I thought I would give it a try.  Seemed like a good Weekend Cooking thing to do.


Peanut Butter French Toast

keeping it simple, use whatever your favorite french toast recipe is…. I like to put vanilla, cinnamon, and powdered sugar in my mix

Mix up your french toast batter

Take your bread of choice and put a layer of smooth peanut butter on it.

Add another slice of bread to the top like a peanut butter sandwich

Dip the sandwich in your french toast batter and let both sides get soaked in batter

Place sandwich in a heated fry pan with a little melted butter

cook 2 to 3 minutes until bottom side is done (golden brown) then flip over an repeat on other side.

Serve immediately with maple syrup.

Verdict: It was good, I am not as big of a peanut butter fan as m husband.  If I were to do it again I may consider adding sliced banana in the sandwich.

What is your favorite version of French Toast?

  1. Hmmm…never thought to do this at ALL. And since I’m gluten-free and always trying to get back on my diet routine, French Toast has been off the menu :-\ I typically would make it very basic though, my mix being egg, a touch of milk or Half&Half, vanilla, a touch of salt and fry in pan with a touch of oil, then would add butter and syrup afterwords. We also have a wonderful recipe in which you bake it in the oven. Great “casserole” version especially for company. Can’t paste it here, but I’ll email it to you 🙂

  2. OMG, my dad would have gone crazy for this! I bet this would just fine with my faux peanut butter … will have to give it a try.

  3. I have always preferred French toast to pancakes, and adding vanilla extract and cinnamon to the batter for the first time was a revelation! I’ve gotten away from French toast with the advent of low-carb and gluten-free diets in the house, but I miss it! Interesting idea with the peanut butter…I wonder how it would be substituting Nutella for the peanut butter???

  4. That sounds interesting! I don’t make French Toast often here. But we do love the overnight casserole one by Ellie Krieger Peach French Toast. I have a box of Pannettone that my mum suggested would be good, French Toast.

  5. Sheila, I am a big fan of French toast! It is so easy to make and yummy. This French toast sounds good! You could also use a different kind of nut butter, such as almond, as a variation.

    Me, too; I often add cinnamon, and a touch of vanilla, to my French toast batter. We usually use coconut oil, and top the cooked slices with some shredded coconut. It is also wonderful–amazing, actually–with the super fruit spreads (no added cane sugar) from Trader Joe’s.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
