The dynamic duo- chocolate and peanut butter.
When thinking of the best food combos, one often looks at the classics- egg and avocado, banana and peanut butter, and last but certainly not least- PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE. Not only is it a comfort food, but man does it taste good. To be honest, the best kind is of chocolate to mix it with is dark chocolate. Yeah, yeah, yeah- dark chocolate is better for you, yeah yeah yeah. Also, I personally think that it TASTES better!
And we can please give french toast the respect it deserves? Man, no one talks about it, but I have NO IDEA WHY. First off- it takes 1/2 the time to cook compared to pancakes, so you’re not a ravenous beast by the time they’re done. Second- the flavor combinations are endless! Chocolate peanut butter, banana bread- really, you can customize it to your needs. Also, it’s easy to make single serving, and is already SEMI healthy if you use the right bread and dipping ingredients.
I’ll admit that the best type of french toast is the thick loaf, powdered sugar on top, cream to dress it- you know the drill. However, I will say that this recipe really makes healthy eating seem exciting. Using the right kind of bread (my preferred brand is Food For Life ezekiel bread), combined with a delicious nut butter to top it off, and the fresh fruit + cacao nibs combo we all love makes this an easy, Saturday or Sunday morning brunch for when you just need “you time”, because we all do!
- 3-4 slices of bread of choice (I used Ezekiel Bread)
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp almond milk*
- 1 tsp powdered peanut butter*
- 1 tsp unsweetened cocca powder
- 1 tsp coconut sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp chocolate peanut butter of choice, for topping
- 1 tsp coconut oil, for cooking
- Optional- chocolate chips, coconut chips, fresh berries, maple syrup
- 1.) In a bowl, whisk the egg, cinnamon, powdered peanut butter, cocoa powder, sugar almond milk, and almond milk in a bowl.
- 2.) Pre-heat your skillet to a medium heat and melt the coconut oil. Dip your bread in the egg mixture and place on the warmed skillet. Let cook on one side for two-three minutes, then flip and cook on the other side for 30 seconds-1 minute.
- 3.) Once done, transfer the bread to a plate, repeat the process with the other pieces of bread, add your toppings, and enjoy!
