Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast


It is Secret Recipe Club time again!  This month I was assigned  This Mama Cooks.  Anne-Marie has a very extensive website full of great recipes as well tips, coupons, and other deals.  Anne-Marie also has a whole section of Weight Watchers recipes!

My son is a huge fan of french toast.  He loves it topped with strawberries, so when I saw this, I immediately knew he would love it!  One Saturday morning I made this for him.  He was in heaven.  My husband wasn’t sure how the strawberries and peanut butter and maple syrup would go together, but it worked.  My 7 year old likes crunchy peanut butter, so that is what I used, but you could use whatever you like.

This is a very filling and somewhat decadent feeling breakfast.  It comes together rather quickly (not much longer than making traditional french toast).  It would be great for a weekend breakfast, or even a fun Thanksgiving breakfast.

Yields 4

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 8 slices whole grain bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat griddle or non stick skillet to 350 degrees (about medium high).
  2. In a small sauce pan heat syrup over low heat. Add the strawberries, and mix to coat. Let sit over low heat until ready to eat.
  3. In a medium sized bowl beat together eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Spread out slices of bread and top each slice with 1 Tbls of peanut butter (I used crunchy). Sandwich bread together, to make 4 sandwiches.
  4. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture, coating both sides. Place on the griddle, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat, slice in half, and top with strawberry mixture to serve.
