National PB&J Day: Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast

5. Use French toast instead of bread. Don’t tell us you haven’t tried this! You haven’t tried this? Ay! Next time you’re preparing French toast for breakfast, make a few extra slices and set them aside in the fridge or freezer. When it’s time to prepare lunch, use the French toast slices in place of the regular old bread. The egg on the French toast adds some healthy protein and the flavor is definitely kicked up a few notches!

6. Add a layer of shredded coconut. Healthy fat, delicious flavor, and a unique texture. Adding a bit of shredded coconut is a smart way to change up the sandwich in a small way that makes a subtle, but fun difference! Plus the taste is to die for.
