There’s nothing more satisfying than peanut butter for breakfast. I don’t care whether it’s slathered on top of waffles, baked inside of banana bread, or blended up in a smoothie – we LOVE the flavor and versatility of peanut butter around here.

I’m guessing my love of peanut butter is genetic (or just a matter of good taste) because this particular recipe was my dad’s specialty.  I remember the first time I served my husband Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast and he looked at me like I was crazy.


Crazy awesome.

Something very magical happens when peanut butter is slathered on hot French toast.  It starts to melt and mix with the rich maple syrup that has been liberally poured over the top of the stack of French toast.

Don’t forget the syrup.

In fact, I’ll let you in on a little secret.  As good as this French toast is with maple syrup, I double dare you to drizzle on a little light corn syrup.  Heaven in your mouth – guaranteed.  That’s how my dad takes his peanut butter stuffed French toast all day long.

No matter how you slice it  (pun intended) this Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast is going to blow your mind.  In the best way possible, of course.

This certainly looks and feels like a weekend breakfast but the best part about this breakfast is it’s fast.  Like we’re talking under 10 minutes from start to finish and you’ve got the nutritious power of peanut butter on your side and a quick and easy serving of protein.

So whether you’re sauntering into the kitchen at 10 a.m. on Sunday, or your kids just woke you up at 6 a.m. and are demanding breakfast, treat yourself and your family to what’s bound to become a new family favorite.

Peanut butter is a smart choice for breakfast.  One serving contains eight grams of protein, 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients, and is high in fiber.  Yeah, you totally knew all that which is part of the reason you love peanut butter as much as I do, right?

  11. There are few things more amazing than melty peanut butter! I often make myself grilled PB&J sandwiches for lunch. So easy … so yummy!

    I can’t even begin to fathom what melted peanut butter would taste like on french toast. Oh! With powdered sugar!

  13. Trish, LOVE how you made these into a peanut buttery kind of breakfast! Do your boys wake up early on the weekends? I love that my kids sleep in… although, I force myself to wake them up around 10am. Because the morning is so quite. They will love that this is ready for them when they wake up, pinning!
    PS… love the corn syrup idea!
