Peanut Butter and Brown Sugar French Toast


This Peanut Butter and Brown Sugar French Toast is a tasty twist on a classic breakfast food.

French Toast and peanut butter together?

What could be better?

This is a fun an easy breakfast recipe your kids will love (and you will too!).

I love French Toast and was looking for a way to change it up.

I thought about just adding peanut butter but that seemed too plain to me.

Then I thought of my favourite sandwich from years ago, peanut butter and brown sugar sandwiches.

I thought they would be perfect in French Toast form.

I started out this recipe by making one of my favourite childhood lunches, peanut butter and brown sugar sandwiches.

I spread peanut butter on all the slices of bread and sprinkled them with brown sugar.

Then I put the slices together to form sandwiches.

The sandwiches were then coated in an egg mixture and cooked in a frying pan until both sides were nicely browned.

I served my French Toast with maple syrup.  

You could also dust it with powdered sugar if you want it to be really sweet.

I am so happy with how it turned out. 

Nothing beats french toast dripping with warm, gooey peanut butter and I love the sweetness from the brown sugar.

I was so excited for my daughter to try it because she’s never had a peanut butter and brown sugar sandwich before. 

She was very impressed. I guess I’ll be making this one again.

So next time you’re in need of a fun breakfast recipe try this peanut butter french toast.

This recipe serves two people and only takes ten minutes from start to finish.

I stumbled across this recipe and about stopped in my tracks as I read the start of your post. My mom and I love peanut butter and brown sugar sandwiches, but I've never heard of anyone else who makes them/has had them outside of our family! Needless to say, I'm adding this to my "to try" pile of recipes! :)

Just made this and it was AMAZING. I did add a little vanilla extract in the egg mixture and I didnt have any regular milk or cream so I used some chocolate milk & it still was awesome. Perfect amount of savory and sweetness. Definitely will make again!
