Ingredients

  • ¼ cup peanut butter plus more for spreading
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 8 slices brioche bread
  • Strawberry jam optional
  • Bananas for serving (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the peanut butter for 15-20 seconds until it’s smooth. Add the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to the melted peanut butter and whisk until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  • Heat the oil in a griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
  • Spread peanut butter on the slices of bread. Add bananas or jam on top, if desired. Then close both sandwiches.
  • Dunk each sandwich in egg mixture, soaking both sides for about 15-30 seconds, until the mixture is absorbed. Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Serve hot with maple syrup, if desired.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge. It's best if you pour the maple syrup right before eating to keep from any uneaten toast from being too soft
Make Ahead: You can make the batter up to 2 days in advance. 
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe. 
  • Use any milk of choice, even though I used almond milk
  • You can leave out the eggs if you want to make this vegan, or sub with flax eggs.
  • Instead of peanut butter, you can use any other nut butter or even Nutella
  • If you don't like the jam, you can skip it all together!
Nutrition: Please note that the nutrition label is only for two slices of brioche bread with 1/4 the batter. Depending on what kind of milk you use, nut butter or bread, the nutrition information can vary slightly.
