I am so excited to announce that I joined the peanut butter bash!
The peanut butter bash is a group of bloggers who make and post a sweet treat of some kind involving peanut butter and a mystery ingredient on the first Thursday of each month. Each month, the mystery ingredient is announced on the Facebook group and bloggers from all over make and post a treat involving the peanut butter combo. When I discovered this group from Miranda’s Instagram, I KNEW I had to join. I love peanut butter (as my blog name hints), so I’m always happy to have the chance to share my love of the super spread. This month’s challenge is also just so fitting! Why? Because the ingredient combination is peanut butter and jelly! Peanut Butter & Ellie makes a peanut butter & jelly-inspired treat. I sought the internet for something unconventional I could make with peanut butter and jelly. Lo and behold, this Buzzfeed post popped up! It gave me major inspiration on how to elevate the age-old pb&j combo.
Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast
inspired by this Buzzfeed post and this recipe
- 2 big slices of yummy bread (such as sourdough)
- 1/3 cup nondairy milk
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
- 2 heaping tablespoons jelly
- strawberries, to garnish
Whisk the milk, flour, cinnamon, and vanilla together in a medium-sized bowl. Dip a piece of bread in the mixture and let it soak for a minute or two. Meanwhile, get out a skillet or pan and spray the bottom with cooking spray. Add the soaked bread to the pan and cook for around 2 minutes on medium-high heat, or until the bottom is brownish. Flip, and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Slide the toast off the pan and onto a plate. Soak the other piece of bread, re-spray the pan, and repeat. To assemble: spread about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter onto the first piece of toast, then add 2 tablespoons of jelly onto the other piece and smush them together. Top the “sandwich” with more peanut butter, jelly, and freshly cut fruit! Enjoy your unconventional french toast sandwich!
