The Maple Peanut Butter French Toast Cups are a great alternative to standing over the oven making french toast piece by piece! They are also much quicker than your normal baked french toast! Plus, single serve? Who doesn’t love treats that are made for one? I know it makes me feel more special!
I used egg whites instead of whole eggs to amp up the protein and then filled it with my favorite maple peanut powder to give it that decadent, melty peanut butter center! Of course, I had to use the maple flavor because a) it’s my favorite and b) maple is such a great fall flavor!
