Triple-layer chocolate french toast

If you need to brighten up breakfast time, this is the perfect way to have a gorgeous but healthy treat 

French toast makes a fantastic breakfast, as it’s as much as a treat as pancakes but it’s so quick and easy to make. Last week I had a sudden brainwave after being reminded about the Kingsmill wholemeal crustless toast in Tesco- how about a triple layered French toast, sandwiched together with chocolate spread and peanut butter?!

So this was the first incarnation of this meal- a layer of bread, a layer of peanut butter, a layer of bread, a layer of chocolate spread, another layer of peanut butter, soaked in egg and then fried with sweetener… and, oh yes, it was GOOD!

One of my lovely Instagram friends , Gem (you can find her by clicking here)cooked it last week, and made a fully chocolate one which looked awesome, and that is what I have posted here- although you can easily replace a layer of chocolate spread with peanut butter if you prefer! Gem also adds some vanilla extract into the egg which I thought was a genius touch!

Wholemeal bread might seem a strange choice to you in this, but honestly don’t knock it until you try it! If you are following Slimming World this allows you to use it as your healthy extra b, and if you aren’t following Slimming World then it’s a great way to up your fibre intake for the day!

Like this idea? Then you would probably also like my 1-syn jam doughnut, and my chocmallow doughnuts!

My Recipe

Serves: 1
Syns: 4 (depending which chocolate spread)
Healthy Extra: B (bread)

Ingredients

  • 3 slices Kingsmill crustless wholemeal
  • 1 tbsp chocolate spread
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Frylight
  • sweetener

Method

  1. Spread half of the chocolate spread on 1 piece of bread, then layer on the next slice, spread the rest of the chocolate spread on this one and place on the final slice.
  2. Beat up the egg with the vanilla essence in a shallow bowl, and then pop the sandwiched bread into the egg, push it gently to soak it up, and turn it over to cover the other side. Soak up as much of the egg as possible into the bread
  3. Spray Frylight into a non-stick frying pan or pancake pan, and then bring to a high heat. Pop the eggy bread into the pan, turn down the heat a little, and fry gently for 2 minutes.
  4. Turn the sandwich over, and again bring the heat up high for 30 seconds or so, then bring down a little and fry gently for 2 more minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with sweetener, turn again, and cook for another minute on each side with a little sweetener sprinkled on each time.
  6. Serve with fresh raspberries or strawberries.

Additional Info

Try replacing one layer of the chocolate spread with peanut butter or raspberry jam, also awesome!
