How to make peanut butter French toast:
Now that we got to know about the popularity of French toast and peanut butter, let’s bring both elements on a plate and prepare a delicious breakfast today. Let’s take a look.
Start by whisking eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Then spread the peanut butter evenly onto one side of each slice of bread. If the peanut butter is too thick, you can microwave it for a few seconds to make it easier to spread. Next, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter melts, dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides evenly. Place the bread slices onto the skillet and cook until golden brown on each side.
Now, top with maple syrup, fresh berries, or banana slices and serve hot.
