You won't believe that these decadent PB&J on French toast sandwiches are less than 400 calories each. 


  • 2/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 8 (1-ounce) Slices white whole-wheat bread
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
  • 6 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar


Step 1:

  • Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium shallow dish, stirring well with a whisk. Place bread slices on a flat surface. Spread 2 tablespoons preserves over each of 4 bread slices, and spread 11 ⁄2 tablespoons peanut butter over each of remaining 4 bread slices. Assemble sandwiches.

Step 2:

  • Carefully dip 2 sandwiches in milk mixture, turning to coat. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 11 ⁄2 teaspoons canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Place coated sandwiches in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until toasted. Remove sandwiches from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 sandwiches, milk mixture, and oil. Sprinkle powdered sugar evenly over sandwiches; cut each sandwich in half diagonally.
