• Almond Butter-Stuffed French Toast

    January 25, 2009

    Yummy breakfast!!! :mrgreen: I made Barney Butter-stuffed French toast! Every bite was like tasting heaven

    Check out the melty almond butter goodness! 😀

    With my BB-stuffed French toast, I also had some blood orange slices on the side. 

    Breakfast with iced coffee…

    Almond Butter-Stuffed French Toast 

    Makes 2


    • 4 slices of bread
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tbsp milk 
    • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    • 2 tbsp of almond butter


    • Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a bowl to create the French toast batter. Mix well. Set aside. 
    • Take 2 slices of bread, and spread 1 tbsp of almond butter on one slice. I used Arnold’s Bakery Light whole wheat bread, which worked great because it is thinly sliced (and just 40 calories a slice). 

    • Stick both pieces of bread together; almond butter on the inside. 

    • Coat both pieces of bread with French toast batter, keeping almond butter on the inside of the 2 pieces. 

    • Heat skillet and coat with non-stick spray.
    • Place bread in skillet; heat both sides until lightly browned, approximately 2-3 minutes each side. 

    • Top Almond butter-stuffed French toast with maple syrup (optional).
    • Eat and enjoy! 

    Spring it!

    melty nut butter … amazing! I never would have thought to add the ab before cooking/coating with batter, but now I will because your way sort of seals the gooey nutty filling inside like a present :-)

    That looks so super delicious!

    Michelle January 25, 2009 at 11:26 am

    Oh, my hub should have made my french toast like yours this morning. Mine was a bit dry, but he tried (I didn’t complain). What a guy! Have a great day!


    Anne P January 25, 2009 at 11:30 am

    holy crap that looks good!


    joyful January 25, 2009 at 11:57 am

    I always read your Sunday morning breakfast posts after I’ve eaten breakfast. And then I always want what you ate instead.


    Kate January 25, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    OMG! I can’t believe how simple the recipe is!!! Since I’m moving into my apartment next year, I’m printing off certain blogger recipes to make easy meals for my friends. This is SO going in!!!


    Red Head, Yellow Dog January 25, 2009 at 12:41 pm

    What a fabulous idea!! I want to make this soon!


    Fit Bottomed Girls January 25, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    I just might have to make this for brinner this week. :)


    Trust, Hope, Believe January 25, 2009 at 1:52 pm

    omg that breakfast sounds heavenly! you are so creative!


    onehealthyapple January 25, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    Your breakfast looks heavenly!
    Quick question: Do you find the lower calorie bread as filling? I usually can’t tell myself.


    Laura January 25, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    Oh lordy, that looks phenomenal!


    Elizabeth (thelongweigh) January 25, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    That looks amazing! I am going to have to try that soon for sure. I can imagine it would be awesome, just like your muffins were! :)


    Maggie January 25, 2009 at 3:04 pm

    Ummm wow! That sounds awesome.


    Lori January 25, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    That looks delicious!


    Lara January 25, 2009 at 3:49 pm

    Wow. I know it’s been said over and over but WOW. Amazing!!


    erin January 25, 2009 at 3:59 pm

    oh. my. god.
    hey tina, first off. i found your blog through kath’s and have been following it for a while now.. i just never knew how to leave a comment without making a blog of my own so, i decided to on friday.

    that french toast looks to DIE for. i’ve always wanted to try barney butter, is it REALLY as good as you say? i’m a peanut butter gal and am not sure i would love it as much as everyone ravess about.

    just wanted to say hi! and thank you for having such a great blog.
    i followed it while i had an eating disorder and admired you so much & now i’m following it as i’m out in hopes to eat as intuitively as you do!

    thanks for all the inspiration




    Babycakes January 25, 2009 at 4:10 pm

    A fantastic idea, looks delish.


    Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) January 25, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    Look at those almond peeking out! I always tell people the chunky Barney Butter is the best as I often hear complaints about the smooth. Chunky people – TRY THE CHUNKY!


    Missy (Missy Maintains) January 25, 2009 at 4:27 pm

    That looks amazing! I am totally making that as soon as I get my hands on some Barney Butter!! Yummm!


    Tina January 25, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    @onehealthyapple: Yea, I think so, but the slices are smaller and thinner, so they might not have the same staying power as the “regular” slices of bread. I’ll have to do a little experiment! 😉


    Lauren January 25, 2009 at 4:44 pm

    Yum, yum, yum!


    lee January 25, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    Hey tina, im wondering if the LIGHT version affected your fullness/satiety after the meal? i think its hard for me to eat light versions because of this! be sure to let us know on a later post today /tomorrow! i am v. curious 😉


    Nicole January 25, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    The only thing I have to say is FABULOUS!!!!!!


    melissa (fitnessnyc) January 25, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    looks amazing!


    Tina January 25, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    @lee: Yea, it did a pretty good job. I wasn’t hungry until lunch time about 3-4 hours later.


    Erin January 25, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    MERCY! That looks insane Teen. I’m not sure how to make vegan french toast, but suddenly I’m very motivated to find out!


    Marianne January 25, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    That would be great with some bananas inside as well 😀


    Caroline January 25, 2009 at 11:50 pm

    Yum! This is very similar to a recipe I was thinking of trying from the Skippy Cookbook…I think I might just skip the PB altogether and try it with AB!


    lauren January 26, 2009 at 9:22 am

    This looks so incredibly good. I cant wait to try it!


    brandi January 26, 2009 at 9:49 am

    I LOVE grilled pb&j sandwiches, so this is even better!

    I love when it gets all melty in the middle :)


    Deb January 26, 2009 at 11:46 am

    Looks amazing, I have got to order my BB soon & give this a try.


    Elina (Healthy and Sane) January 26, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    I made stuffed french toast on Saturday morning. It’s such a decadent breakfast- I love it! Your idea of using light bread is great! I may try it next time because I like to add lots of goodies in there :)


    Jess March 10, 2010 at 9:55 am

    Amazing!! I had this this morning after reading about it last week. You are a genius!!


    Rachel July 7, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for awhile and finally made it today for breakfast…delicious! I also added some sliced bananas inside…all in all, a really fun “treat” breakfast with some serious staying power!


    BB March 14, 2011 at 12:19 am

    I’m a new reader and really enjoying your blog ( I came across it from another site but I can’t remember where). I made this recipe for breakfast this morning and my husband and I both LOVED It! What is Barney Butter and where do you get it? I just used TJs almond butter. Thanks for posting a delicious and healthy recipe!


    Sky March 22, 2012 at 10:08 am

    I just made this recipe, but I used peanut butter instead! Sooo delicious!!


    Michelle April 10, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    Some people add brown sugar or honey to batter, I think you should try. I will next time I make some. And add jelly and/or fruits to filling. Delish.


    Michelle April 10, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    Also, French bread is best. Cook it slowly bad let it soak all of the batter.
