Almond butter and mini dark chocolate chips sandwiched between golden slices of egg-battered bread – it's a reason to roll out of bed! Be sure to use bread that is at least a day old – stale bread soaks up the tasty almondmilk-egg batter better than fresh. Almond Coconut almondmilk is delicious in this recipe – vanilla, banana and even chocolate varieties are also super tasty. For a decadent take, double the filling.

Directions

  1. Combine almond butter, 4 teaspoons almondmilk, and 4 teaspoons mini chocolate chips

  2. Spread 4 slices of bread with almond mixture. Top with the remaining slices of bread.

  3. Whisk together remaining almondmilk and eggs in 13”x9” baking dish. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, soaking for 2 minutes per side.

  4. Heat 1 tablespoon butter or oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place 2 of the sandwiches in skillet. Cook 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and butter or oil. Top with coconut and syrup, if desired.

  5. Refrigerate leftovers.
