Peanut Butter French Toast

  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter room temperature ; smooth or crunchy, your preference
  • 2 slices of bread gluten free or gluten bread


  • 1 quart strawberries I prefer organic
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch or cornstarch


Peanut Butter French Toast

  • Heat a small skillet to medium-high and melt butter.
  • In a small bowl whisk together egg, agave, milk and peanut butter until fully combined.
  • Pour mixture into a deep dish, flat bottom bowl or a pie tin.  Dip each side of bread into the batter fully coating it.
  • Place coated bread into the hot skillet and allow to brown on each side; about a minute per side (check by lifting toast with a spatula).  
  • When browned on both sides, remove from skillet and serve with powdered sugar and Homemade Organic Strawberry Syrup.

Homemade Strawberry Syrup

  • Hull, core and slice strawberries.  Place them in a heavy saucepan and mash with potato masher or back of a large spoon.
  • In a small bowl, mix arrowroot starch in the ½ cup water with a whisk to fully combine.  Add sugar and honey.  Stir to mix together and pour over strawberries in the saucepan.
  • Bring to a medium boil and immediately reduce heat to medium or medium-low, allowing mixture to just simmer for 20-25 minutes when it should be thicker.  NOTE: Much of the thickening happens after it sits so don’t worry if it is not syrup consistency entirely.  Consistency note: if the syrup is more chunky that you desire, you may use a immersion or stick blender at this stage to smooth out the consistency.
  • Remove mixture from heat and allow it to cool for 20 minutes.  Use on French toast, pancakes, waffles or anything else you desire.  Place any access in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


NOTE: cooking time for making the strawberry syrup.
