Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast

April 1, 2010

Ohh yes, I went there! I’ve been making this for a while but have never posted or taken pictures of the recipe. Peanut butter stuffed French toast is the best breakfast treat…ever.


It’s two big slices of French bread, hollowed slightly and filled with peanut butter, bananas, cream cheese or jam.


Of course, making this for my mom was like torture. I gave up bread for lent and I miss it so much! Just three more days and I’m pigging out.

With a loaf of day old bread (really any kind) slice about 1 1/4” slices. Pull some dough out of the middle, and assemble stuffers.

Peanut butter is the best stuffer, but cream cheese, honey, jam, and banana slices are all delicious fillings. Feel free to combine any of these to fill the French toast.

I used maple peanut butter, cream cheese and thinly sliced bananas.

The egg batter is simple too, just 1 egg, 1 tsp of honey, 2 tbsp almond milk, 1 pinch of salt and 1 pinch of cinnamon.

This makes enough for the batter of two sandwiches, but if you just make one there will be a little bit of waste.

If you sandwich it together before you soak it, you’ll have a perfectly cooked stack.


If you get some batter on the sides, just turn it to cook them. By that point it should stay together.


Ooey, gooey and decadent. Yes.

Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • Pinch of salt

Hollow” the slices of bread by pulling out some of the dough from the middle of the slices. Fill with peanut butter, cream cheese, jam, or fruit. Sandwich together.

Whisk together the egg, honey, cinnamon, almond milk, and salt. Dip each side of each sandwich in and soak for 30 seconds. Cook in a greased non stick skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side. Turn to cook the edges if there is egg batter there.

Slice to reveal the filling and serve with maple syrup and more fruit.

What’s your favorite breakfast indulgence?


If you’ve sent me an email or question and I haven’t gotten back to you, I’m working on it. I’ve had a hard week, but I think it’s going to be okay. Have you ever gotten a blow that makes you feel like you’ll never be good enough?

After a long talk with my dad and reading some older posts on a certain blog, I’m back.

“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will not fail you.” -Deuteronomy 31:8


I want to thank you all for the continued support and encouragement. Hope everyone is having a great week!

    sorry to hear you’re having a rough week! your french toast looks delicious. do you have any suggestions as to how to replace the egg in the batter to make it vegan? i can sub agave for the honey and use tofutti cream cheese but i dunno what to do about that.

      For the egg I would definitely say silken tofu. Silken tofu french toast comes out awesome, and I need to do that recipe soon!

      • April 1, 2010 10:00 am

        how much would i use in this recipe? i haven’t used silken tofu for anything except pies (to make a pudding filling)!

      • April 2, 2010 10:32 pm

        I would say 1/4 cup pureed. Make sure you grease the pan really well though!! 🙂

    I’m sorry about the rough week. Keep your head up 🙂

    PB Banana Cream Cheese french toast would probably be on my “last meal” plate 😀

    Yum!! Looks killer, as always. I haven’t made myself french toast (or, anything other than oats! haha) in a while. I need to fix that! Except – it’ll have to be for lunch or dinner so I don’t have oat withdrawals 😛

    Sorry you’ve had some rough days…that’s never fun. But – chin up!! Whatever it is, is sure to clear in time 🙂

    Great toast…I never would have thought to hollow the bread a bit, but it makes so much sense…mainly I’m commenting to say HANG IN THERE. I don’t know if you’re referring to eating bread, college mayhem, or something else. But I am feeling the pressure too and want you to know that you are AWESOME. Seriously, what other high school students can hold their own in the cooking blog world, creating their own cream cheese and cooking competitions, make recipes for nut butter companies, raise money for Haiti victims, etc., etc., etc.?? This might feel like a dark time, but the sun WILL come OUT…hehe hope thats not too cheesy

      Thank you so much Caroline, your comment means so much to me.
      I hope everything turns out well for you tomorrow (April 1!!)
      Hhaaha and my dark time isn’t from a lack of bread, but I’m going to pretend it is! Hahaha I’m picturing me with puffy eyes at the gym and someone asking what’s wrong. “I miss bread.”

  5. April 1, 2010 8:04 am

    Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, OH MY GOSH this looks incredible!! I am going to have to make this sometime soon!!

    So sorry you’ve been having a hard week. Hang in there girly and you’re doing the right thing by looking to inspirational verses to lift you up!! 🙂

  6. April 1, 2010 8:07 am

    Holy wow that looks amazing! I am going to have to make some french toast soon!

  7. April 1, 2010 8:12 am

    Wow! What beautiful food porn, girl! I have to make this soon!

  8. April 1, 2010 8:14 am

    Sorry to hear about your rough week. I’m praying for you.

    omg. I can *never* let my daughter see this or I will be cooking it every day forever. My french toast fanatic will never let me rest.

  10. April 1, 2010 9:28 am

    Sorry you are having a hard week, girl. 😦 Hope things turn around. That is the best french toast I have ever seen!

  11. April 1, 2010 9:49 am

    I hope you’re doing ok! Hang in there. Your food looks amazing as always.

    My fave breakfast indulgence would be an egg sandwich. It’s not indulgent healthwise, but it takes too long to make for my schedule most mornings.

  12. April 1, 2010 9:59 am

    You are amazing and I love that verse.

    Also when I get down I like to remind myself of this one:

    “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” Matthew 28-30

    Your french toast sounds awesome – as do all your creations!

  13. April 1, 2010 10:47 am

    Head up, Mae! You’ll get through it, and the next time you are dealt a blow, it’ll be that much easier.

    Dr. Meagan Mary,
    You are awesome and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You’re one of the best friends anyone could ask for and whenever you’re feeling down, you still manage to keep your head up and cheer up everyone around you. That’s pretty impressive, I must say.

    If anyone can get through hard times, it’s you. You’ve proved it many times, so don’t worry about what tomorrow will bring, just enjoy today and be the best you you can be. 🙂

    “Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.” -Ecclesiastes 3:11-12

    So, thanks for being my friend, because I don’t know what I’d do without ya 🙂 Cheer up mon amie! ❤

  17. April 1, 2010 8:18 pm

    there’s no way I could have made that and not had some! 🙂 so sweet of you. It looks great!

  18. April 1, 2010 8:24 pm

    Oh my Lordie! That has got to be the prettiest French Toast I have seen in a long time 🙂

  19. April 1, 2010 10:10 pm

    First of all, the French toast looks AMAZE!!! YUM!!!

    Second, SO sorry about what you are going through. I understand. I got a similar blow this morning. But you just have to move on and keep trucking along. The important thing is to not give up. You know, sometimes you have to go through hard times to appreciate the good times when you have them. And sometimes it’s SO hard to understand why things happen but you have to remember that there are things we can’t see. The Lord can see our entire lives, he sees the whole picture, we only see a portion. One day, we will understand. Or maybe not. But everything will work out the way it’s supposed to. You are amazing and sweet and gorgeous and incredible!!! Don’t EVER let anyone else tell you otherwise!!!!!!!!!
    Love you girl!

    Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
    Joshua 1:9

    So sorry to hear about your week…I was worried something might be up since there were no blog updates. Remember that just grieving and crying is always valuable, as long as you remember that God’s plan is perfect and good times will return.

  22. April 1, 2010 11:19 pm

    I’ve seen a lot of awesome stuffed French toasts on the blogosphere, but I think yours takes the cake…it looks so awesome and decadent!! My favorite breakfast indulgence is probably blueberry pancakes, made by my grandpa. It reminds me of childhood 🙂

    Have a great day chica!!

  23. April 2, 2010 2:48 am

    Wow. All I can say is wow. This looks absolutely amazing!

  24. April 2, 2010 2:48 am

    Um. Wow. How creative you are! Looks absolutely DELISH! I must make!

    And feel better! Some days honestly just suck. That’s why we have sleep and a new day to take care of the bad ones. The next day always seems better. : )

  25. April 2, 2010 9:37 am

    Love it May! Sounds so yummy. Breakfast treats are my fave 🙂

  26. April 5, 2010 4:43 am

    May, I’m so glad you posted the recipe for peanut butter french toast – I see ppl talk about it all over bloggy-land – but had no idea how to make it. I’ll totally be trying this in the near future.

  27. April 6, 2010 8:37 pm

    Wow, this looks delicious! Also, thanks for suggesting silken tofu, I usually make a “flax egg” but the tofu way sounds much better 🙂

    Hope things get better for you soon too. God is good and He’ll get you through it!
