Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast

Peanut butter and jelly. Such a classic combo. This was my go to sandwich growing up and it truly never got old. However, I think it’s time I needed an upgrade from my favorite childhood sandwich so here we have it- peanut butter and jelly french toast! These are crisp on the outside and creamy with sweet + savory goodness on the inside! What’s not to love about this delicious combo?!

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs

Procedure:

  1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs, almond milk, and sea salt. Set aside.

  4. Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter onto each slice.
  5. Spread 1 tablespoon of raspberry jam on 3 of the slices.
  6. Put one slice of peanut butter and one slice of jam together to form a sandwich. Do this with each slice until you have formed 3 sandwiches.

  8. Dip all sandwiches into egg mixture and place all sandwiches on the heated pan.
  9. Cook sandwiches for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  10. Remove from heat and cut sandwiches in half on a diagonal.
