Protein-Packed Peanut Butter Breakfast

Prep time: 20 minutes | Cook time: 35-40 minutes | Servings: 4


  •              butter
  • ²⁄₃  cup  creamy peanut butter, divided
  • 2           eggs
  • ½ cup    granulated sugar
  • ²⁄₃  cup  milk
  • 1 ½ tsp  pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp     salt
  • 4 cups   cubed brioche or challah bread, cut into ¾-inch cubes
  • ²⁄₃  cup  pure maple syrup
  • ¹⁄₃  cup  crushed peanuts
  •              powdered sugar, for garnish


Heat oven to 350° F. Butter four 4-ounce ramekins.

In bowl, mix 1/3 cup peanut butter, eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla and salt. Toss bread cubes in mixture until thoroughly coated. Divide evenly among prepared dishes. Bake until custard is set in middle and tops are golden, about 35-40 minutes. If tops of bread brown too quickly, cover ramekins loosely with aluminum foil.

In small saucepan over low heat, combine remaining peanut butter and maple syrup until thoroughly warmed.

To serve, drizzle ramekins with maple-

peanut sauce and garnish with chopped peanuts and powdered sugar.

Substitution: Whole wheat rolls may be used in place of brioche or challah bread.
