Scale

Ingredients

For the Stuffed French Toast:

  • 1 loaf whole wheat bread (or your favorite kind of bread!)
  • Peanut butter
  • Cinnamon

For the Batter:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk (any kind!)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 12 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • Optional for serving: fresh fruit, maple syrup and greek or skyr yogurt

Instructions

  1. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Taking two slices of bread at a time, slather with peanut butter and a dash of cinnamon, then sandwich together.  Repeat until you’ve used the whole loaf of bread.
  3. Slice the peanut butter cinnamon sandwiches into 2″ cubes, then layer into the prepared baking pan (some overlap is perfectly fine).
  4. Combine eggs, yogurt, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon, whisking well to combine.
  5. Pour egg mixture over the bread cubes and toss gently to ensure they’re fully coated.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  7. A few minutes before you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until bread is golden brown on top and french toast bake is set.
  9. Serve with fresh fruit, yogurt and/or maple syrup!


Notes

  • If you want to make a small batch of just a few pieces, you can simply make the number of sandwiches you’d like, then follow these instructions to make on the stovetop as opposed to a whole bake.
