I woke up craving PB&J today – because I realized we had Cville Crunch in stock last night!

To make it all-the-more exciting, I turned it into AB&J French Toast!

A regular slice and an end piece, frenched up in an egg and cinnamon batter and cooked in coconut oil for the ultimate crispy crust. Topped with Naturally Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter, homemade strawberry jam, and coconut.

Raspberry Leaf tea makes her debut!

This breakfast was supposed to include a peach but I forgot it!! Strawberry jam threw me through a loop : )

I wish I could reach into my screen and take a sneak a spoonful (or 5) of that Naturally Nutty!!

Haha – I agree with Allie. I actually had that SAME exact thought. Except for a spoonful of that entire dish (+5 of the Naturally Nutty!).

Love that tea bag message!

Looks tasty! What brand of tea is the raspberry leaf? I like the inspirational messages on the tea bag!

The main brand – I can’t remember the name – but it’s the big herbal tea brand you find at Whole Foods. Beige box?

Is it Traditional Medicinals?

Yes, thanks!

Sounds and looks delish! I also LOVE the little saying on your tea bag. Does every bag have a different quote?

Not sure yet!

I love when my tea tags say something sweet :)

I love the idea to cook the french toast in coconut oil! Looks delicious!

Peanut butter or almond butter, I wouldn’t care. I love them both!

I just started drinking my RRL tea too now that I’m 37 weeks. Just wanted to let you know that I saw somewhere online that it can interfere with absorption of vitamins. Not sure when you take prenatals, but this site advised spacing out the tea and vitamins at least 2 hours!

Reply

13 KathEats August 7, 2012 at 9:18 am

Oh I hadn’t heard that – thanks for the tip. I think I’m going to make some iced tea so I can have it between meals!

14 Jennifer August 7, 2012 at 9:45 am

Yeah it’s the tannins from the tea that interfere with Iron absorption. Same reason you have to space the prenatals out with dairy/calcium foods.

Is that Yogi tea? I love their inspirational messages on each bag. I always look forward to reading them when I’m preparing my cup of tea. :)

Did you make the homemade strawb. jam?! Yum!

No I friend did

Love the quote on the tea bag!

19 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 7, 2012 at 9:33 am

Cloudy mornings call for toast! I have french toast on my blog this AM too, but I baked the peanut butter right into it. That jam looks delish! Adding that next time. :)

20 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 7, 2012 at 9:41 am

Okay that looks ridiculously delicious.

21 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat August 7, 2012 at 9:48 am

Comfort food for breakfast sounds amazing – I only ever seem to have time for overnight oats!

22 Liz @ Tip Top Shape August 7, 2012 at 9:50 am

That looks like some delicious french toast :D

23 Emily M. August 7, 2012 at 9:58 am

oh i love that quote on the teabag.

24 Melissa @ HerGreenLife August 7, 2012 at 10:03 am

Ah, raspberry leaf tea time :) The French toast looks delish — it’s on our “make soon” list, but we don’t have the bread we want for it. Thinly sliced fresh peach on warm pancakes made a pretty acceptable alternative this morning, though.

Delicious! Love the note on the tea… :)

26 Catalina @ Cake with Love August 7, 2012 at 10:22 am

I went to sleep with a PB & Banana sandwich craving, and this was the first thing I did this morning! Even before brushing my teeth (I know, gross), but I couldn’t resist teh temptation anymore! I have never had PB & Jelly, so this is on my list now!

27 The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh August 7, 2012 at 10:23 am

So is that brand with the cute little sayings called Positivitea? Because if it’s not, it should be! Very cute!

28 kim@hungryhealthygirl August 7, 2012 at 10:47 am

Oh well, you can have that peach for a snack…..that’s what I did! Happy Tuesday! ;)

29 Alison August 7, 2012 at 10:51 am

Well that is one spiffy breakfast!! :)

30 Laura @ She Eats Well August 7, 2012 at 10:52 am

That toast looks delicious! I just enjoyed two slices myself, with flax peanut butter on top. Sometimes, the simple breakfasts are the best!

Mmmm…I should not look at your blog when I am hungry :-).

32 Jessica @ New Girl, New City August 7, 2012 at 11:22 am

I’ve been craving simple toast like no other.. and GH definitely has the best. Might need to make a trip soon..

33 B @ Crags and Veggies August 7, 2012 at 11:49 am

There’s absolutely no need for a peach when you have french toast with jelly! It’s healthy enough, right? :)

34 mary @ minutespermile August 7, 2012 at 11:52 am

Omg I love French toast. Thanks to this post I will be making it for breakfast tomorrow!!! Nom nom nom

Hi! I recently started reading your blog about 1 month or 2 ago and I really enjoy it. Everything always looks so good! I’ve recently started my own and have definitely been inspired by you to do so. I look forward to your posts on a daily basis. I had never heard of overnight oats before reading your blog and now I love them and have cooked them for others! Thanks for your daily sharing :)

Jam/jelly – the more the merrier. Looks great!

41 Anna August 7, 2012 at 1:32 pm

This looks delicious! I’ve been in a pb & j mood too recently- it is even good on whole grain english muffins or rice cakes for a lighter treat!

42 Jeri August 7, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Is cocnut oil better than the other oils to cook with? Or does it just give a good flavor.

Reply

43 KathEats August 7, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Both – it has a high temp and it adds fun flavor

Reply

44 Spice Chicken August 7, 2012 at 7:37 pm

How about a recipe for this toast?

Reply

45 KathEats August 7, 2012 at 7:56 pm

It’s just a basic french toast – 1 egg plus cinnamon, soak the toast and seared in some coconut oil on both sides! Hope that makes sense

Reply

46 Spice Chicken August 8, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Yes, thanks. Looks awesome. I’m a newcomer here, and I love your approach and enjoy the posts, which have given me some good ideas for my own experimental cooking. Your recipe for yogurt pancakes became an instant classic in my house.

Great! Welcome!

48 Christina @ The Beautiful Balance August 7, 2012 at 10:10 pm

DELICIOUS! I don’t eat egg so I can’t enjoy this :( Either way it looks yummy
