FACT: Peanut butter and jelly is the most fun and delicious thing that's ever happened between two slices of bread.

This may not actually be a fact but it's an extensively well-researched opinion and with food, isn't that kind of all you can ask for?

So, we made a version that uses frozen mixed berries (plus a little honey for ~fun~) and natural, unsweetened almond butter.

Oh, and did I mention that we turned the whole thing into FRENCH TOAST?

Almond Butter And Jelly French Toast Sandwiches

Makes 4 servings

recipe by Christine Byrne

INGREDIENTS

2 cups frozen mixed berries (or, you can use fresh)

1 tablespoon + 1 tablespoon honey

4 tablespoons almond butter

8 slices whole wheat bread

2 large eggs

2 large egg whites

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Nonstick cooking spray


PREPARATION

In a small bowl, microwave the frozen berries and 1 tablespoon honey until the berries are very soft. Stir everything together to mash the berries a little bit. Divide the berries among 4 slices of bread, then spread 1 tablespoon almond butter over the other 4 slices and pair the slices together to make 4 sandwiches.

In a small, shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, almond milk, vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon honey.

Spray a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat it over medium-low heat. Soak a sandwich on both sides in the egg mixture, then lay the sandwich in the nonstick skillet. Work in batches, cooking 2 sandwiches at a time. Cook each sandwich until the underside is dark golden brown and slightly crispy, about 3 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until both sides are golden brown and crispy and the insides are heated through, about 3 minutes more. Serve warm.
