Chocolate and peanut butter never get old for me. I’m sure you can tell because just about every other recipe has chocolate, peanut butter, or both! And, since my birthday is in less than a week, I figured I’d treat myself to some healthy chocolate peanut butter French toast.
I went with chocolate French toast layered with peanut butter cream. Then, I topped it with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate, crushed peanuts, and some more chocolate chips because you can never have too much chocolate.
To make the chocolate French toast, I just added some cocoa powder to the egg mixture. I also put all the other typical ingredients like egg, milk, sweetener, and cinnamon. It wouldn’t be French toast without a nice cinnamon flavor!
