Lately, M has been using the Ninja blender to make her very own homemade peanut butter. She loads up the machine with lots of unsalted peanuts and pulses the motor until the mixture forms a smooth, creamy spread. When we pair the freshly made peanut butter with our Concord Grape Jam and favorite French toast recipe, the combination makes for a killer breakfast treat.
PB&J French Toast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon butter extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon sugar
12 thick slices of bread
Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk until well combined. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, almond, butter, and vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Soak bread slices in mixture until completely saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown.
Slather your favorite peanut butter over one slice of French toast. Spread your favorite jam or jelly on a second slice of French toast. Combine to make a sandwich and slice diagonally for corner to corner.

it looks very veeeeery delicious! 🙂 I am just a forever PB fan ^^
M feels the same way… She puts peanut butter on everything! If you’ve not tried making your own, it’s super simple and quite delicious. You can use salted or unsalted peanuts. Blend them up in a powerful blender and store in an airtight container in the fridge. So good!
I have tried already (too much of a fan not too!) haha 😀 but I just ate it in the same day cause I was not sure how long would it last. Does it stay good for long?
We always keep it refrigerated and usually use it up within 3 or 4 days. Try to buy peanuts in bulk from a reputable grower or shop. Yum!
There are only two words to describe this dish – Yum! and Yum! Also, making our own peanut butter must go on our bucket list! xoxoxoxoxoxox
Dani- it is so simple to make your own peanut butter. We have a Ninja brand blender so a powerful blender is a must. Although, our local grocer now has a peanut butter station where one can make their own peanut butter right in the store! What will they think of next?
You can also use hazelnut, almonds, and even sunflower seeds in the blender to make a healthy sandwich.
Have a great day, Dani… Looking forward to your next post!😊
I do so love a French toast breakfast (though here we call it Gypsy toast) with lots of (homemade) sour blackcurrant jam and clotted cream! Gorgeous!
Gosh, your version sounds delicious! Thanks for your comment and for the great recipe suggestion! Have a great day😊
Clotted cream and black currant jam are amazing and so hard to find… you must share your homemade recipes. 🙂
I love making my own nut butters. This eggy toast looks sensational, Linda.
Yes, please share your recipe, kayjayaitch!
