Peanut Butter And Jelly French Toast
- 8 slices of whole grain bread
- 1/2 cup natural, unsalted peanut butter
- 1/2 cup low-sugar fruit preserves (strawberry or grape)
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- Cooking spray or coconut oil
- Fresh fruit for garnish (optional)
- Spread peanut butter on one side of four bread slices and low-sugar fruit preserves on the other four slices. Sandwich them together, creating four PB&J sandwiches.
- In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, almond milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
- Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat, lightly coating it with cooking spray or coconut oil.
- Dip each PB&J sandwich in the egg mixture, coating both sides evenly. Allow excess to drip off before placing it on the heated skillet.
- Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crispy.
- Cut each French toast sandwich in half, and serve warm with a side of fresh fruit, if desired.
- Choose a whole grain bread with low sodium content for better blood pressure control.
- Ensure that the peanut butter you use is natural and unsalted to minimize sodium intake.
