PB&J Cheesecake French Toast Bake (Low Carb)
Couple goals, peanut butter and jelly. There are just so many amazing combination when it comes to peanut butter but I think that a good fruit jelly will always be my favorite one; not only because of the taste but the nostalgic memories of my dad making me peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches.
This french toast bake is inspired by all my favorite ones, all in one... in a nostalgic, delicious and healthy casserole that will be warming up your days. This recipe includes a fusion of peanut butter and real fruit jelly, some low carb breads and of course, some cream cheese for the cheesecake factor.

Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these PB&J Cheesecake French Toast Bake:

This peanut butter has simple ingredients and for two tablespoons has only 100 calories.

Toast or air fry the bread before pouring the mix. This helps with the final consistency and to avoid the bread from crumbling all about during the baking process. It adds a great addition of density too!
