Happy Groundhog Day!
This morning, the hubs and I slept in pretty late. Not going to lie – it felt amazing. For breakfast, I had French toast on my mind. Saturdays are just French toast kind of days, no?
I made the French toast with whole wheat 21 grain bread, an egg, some almond milk, and a ton of cinnamon. I was also craving peanut butter (when am I not?), so I decided to make my own peanut butter maple syrup. I combined the peanut butter with some real maple syrup. I emphasize real here because I cannot stand that Aunt Jemima crap. Always go for the real thing 🙂
- 1 T peanut butter, preferably smooth
- 1.5 T maple syrup
- a dash of cinnamon
Combine all ingredients until smooth. Microwave for about 20 seconds. Stir, pour on French toast, and enjoy!
