This Healthy Stuffed French Toast with PB and J is a quick and easy breakfast spin on a classic, that is great for kids and adults!

Skinny PB & J French Toast {Low Calorie, Low Fat, Whole Wheat + High Protein} -Food Faith Fitness

In the FFF household, breakfast is a REALLY big deal.

As in, I am pretty sure that Mr. FFF could be happy eating Cheerios for every single meal for all the evers that he has left on planet earth (which I am hoping is still a lot.)

In fact, the other day I accidently FORGOT TO BUY CHEERIOS when he had non left.

Don’t worry, he stuck around. I am not currently typing this a single lady with multiple cats on my head. I’m not sure why they would be on my head, but whatever. You understand.

Anyways.

Breakfast. He loves it, I love it (if you’ve been around here long enough you know I am kinda-sorta-really-totally-obsessed with oatmeal) In fact, we go to Ihop for dinner a lot. Like it’s kind of ridiculous. BUT have you tried their healthy Harvest Grain and Nut Pancakes with Blueberries? I die.

Aside from Mr. FFF’s obsession with cheerios (and most cereals) he REALLY likes French toast. I quite enjoy it too, but I do lean toward the pancake side of life. However, we both agree that Pb & J? Yeah, it’s good no matter if its on a pancake, French toast, in between bread, on a clean sock…..okay maybe the last part is far fetched. But, my dog just threw a sock at my face. Get it? Far FETCHED? I crack myself up.

And, you’re gone.

I ALMOST didn’t share this with you because it’s ridiculously easy and barely a recipe. Plus, everyone and their dog has made French toast in their life. Bread –> Egg –> Soak –> Fry –> Flip  –> Face. Not so hard right? But, we eat this French toast A LOT because:

1. It’s a bazillion calories less than typical French toast, and it’s rockin’ on the protein.

2. It’s easy

3. I’m lazy.

4. Who doesn’t like peanut butter and jam?

5. I like peanut butter and jam.

Therefore, I decided that share-age was necessary.

Have you guys ever tried powdered peanut butter? It’s basically peanut butter that has been defatted and is turned into a powder (obvs.) but still tastes peanut-y. I will tell you it is definitely not as good and creamy as straight up peanut butter, but it makes an AWESOME substitute when you have a mega craving. Read: every day of my life. It’s super easy to find online and I also found some at Wal-mart the other day! I mix it in a lot of things: oatmeal, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese and I love it on squash. Weird sounding? Yes, but so so great x 10. You guys really need to try this stuff!

PLUS you can feel really grown up eating because it’s totally a fancified peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I may be grasping at straws because I still feel unjustified in posting something so easy, but you don’t mind right?

Go forth and enjoy a fancy Pb & J.

Pinkies up!

  3. Spray a large pan or griddle with cooking spray and heat on medium.
  4. Cook the french toast until lightly golden, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. While the french toast cooks, combine the PB2, Splenda and almond milk in a small bowl until smooth.

    I’m a big fan of PB&J. Have it every day for lunch (what can I say, I’m a creature of habit I guess). Love this creative twist to french toast!

    If you are ever in NYC, there is a place called Doughnut Plant and they have a crazy good PB&J doughnut. It’s amazing. I kinda want one right now, haha.

      I am jealous of your lunches. I should do that. I am one to put on and j in my morning oatmeal!

      Oh my gosh. That donut. I need it. I have always wanted to go to NYC and now I REALLY need to!

    Even though like you said, everyone knows how to make french toast, I still like when people post common things! Because everyone has a DIFFERENT way of doing things..right :) This looks awesome, who doesn’t love PB & J? And as for powdered PB..this girl loves and adores it!! SO good and the perfect replacement if you want to cut the calories…I see you said you mix it with cottage cheese?! Is that really a good combo?! Cottage cheese is one of my all time favorite things to eat, but have never tried it with PB. hmmm might have to try that! Thanks for the recipe FFF :)

    • Tate says

      You are so welcome! Thanks for the sweet comments!
      And yes you need to mix it in cottage cheese girl! Holy life changing!
      Especially if you throw in some chocolate protein powder. So good!

    I love easy recipes like this. Aka, something I will actually make on a Wednesday morning. And I have never even heard of powdered peanut butter! Bet it would be great to use in frostings or smoothies. I’m going to have to keep my eye out for it : )

    I have not tried powdered pb – nor have I tried IHOP’s Harvest Grain and Nut Pancakes with Blueberries nor have I EVER had french toast filled with peanut butter and jelly- gosh I am missing out! What a BRILLIANT idea, Taylor! Sometimes the simplest things are the BESTEST!

  5. says

    Yes!! Finally someone else who loves “brinner” (breakfast for dinner). If I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day, I’d be one happy girl. Of course I’d alternate between french toast, pancakes, waffles, omelettes, muffins, yogurt and granola, cinnamon rolls… Well, you get the picture. ;) Your PB&J french toast was totally worth posting! Easy meals = less time before eating = amazing. They look so cute too!

  6. says

    I want this for breakfast! My hubby can’t live without his cheerios either. If I ever forget to stock up on them though, I am pretty sure he would have no problem enjoying this awesomeness instead! Love the PB&J twist :).

  7. says

    There are *so* many things about this post I love and agree with. Seriously, are we related? For one, my husband and I absolutely love our cereal in the morning (just posted this on my site today for homemade granola that we always add to cereal) and for two, peanut butter and jelly is pretty much the greatest combo and I can never get enough of it. Oh, and PB2: it’s so great—you can have peanut butter but without the calories! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Cats on your head? I lol. Totally not normal, but I strangely totally understand
    2. I may or may not have been eating PB2 while reading this
    3. I should probably incorporate more french toast into my life. French toast= happy Lauren
    4. This recipe totally annihilates my argument on how good Uncrustables are, lol

  9. says

    I think I am permanently seven years old. I love Cheerios (multigrain, of course!) and PB&J. Like everyday. Every single day. I can’t help it. It’s so good. I’m a simple woman.
    BUT … I do love me some French toast … I mean … who doesn’t?!? I can’t be friends with those people. And now PB&J French toast? Yeah … I’m in. Totally in.

  10. says

    Yeah I’ve been trying to get my hands in some pb flour for months, but it’s impossible to buy here :–( Sighs, because I really need to make this. PB + French toast + jelly??? H-E-A-V-E-N-L-Y. This stuff looks too good <3

    • Tate says

      ISN’T IT THE BEST. P.s If you like squash…mix it with almond milk and eat it on squash with a little sea salt (my fav is kabocha.) LIFE CHANGING.
      Defs on the same page.
      Brinner = best. I hope you lurveeee it!
