Chocolate Brownie Stuffed French Toast


Chocolate soaked french toast with a a creamy peanut butter filling and drizzled with chocolate sauce ~ a healthier breakfast or brunch french toast treat 

I love it when the months get colder. 

Not only does it mean Christmas is coming but it means that it is also socially acceptable to eat your bodyweight in festive treats and comfort food. Yes my figure may not appreciate it by the end of December but that's what new years resolutions are for am I right?! I was scrolling through my Photo library as I normally do when Im bored or don't have any exciting blogging material and I can't believe I have kept this hidden for such a long time! 



Making this was one of those rare moments in my house where I actually had sliced bread, a proper creamy greek yoghurt, non- mouldy fruits and leftover chocolate (because in my house there is no such thing). I came across this recipe from Cafe Delites after stalking her perfucsely on her instagram. Chocolate and Peanut Butter kind of sold me on the idea of making this for lunch because you know, weekends. I slightly adapted the recipe since the original called for a cream cheese filling, which to be honest sounded frikin AMAZING but I didn't have it in my fridge and it would be one of those things where you buy an ingredient for one recipe and end up never using it again. I suppose that would replicate a sort of cheesecake taste but I found using greek yoghurt was still increds and plus it is much healthier for you anyway ^^

So go my friends, spread your wings and make some chocolate peanut butter french toast goodness to brighten up your day~
