This Nutella stuffed french toast is the breakfast we never knew we needed

Because everything is better with Nutella.

It's time to take a beloved and classic breakfast treat...and add some chocolate to it.

We came across a recipe for Nutella stuffed churro french toast on Cafe Delites last week - and it sounds way too good to pass up.

To make things even better, it's pretty easy to make - so you'll be enjoying a tasty breakfast in no time flat.

Here's what you need: 

  • 4 slices of thick bread of choice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk (or almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sweetener/sugar of choice
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella , divided into 4 teaspoons

And for the coating, you'll need: 

  • 4 tablespoons cinnamon sugar OR 3 tablespoons sugar mixed with 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon (but adjust these measurements to suit your tastes)

Don't worry, it's not going to be too long until your Nutella stuffed french toast is a nice golden brown and ready to enjoy.

To make the french toast: 

  1. Whisk the eggs and the milk together with the cinnamon, vanilla extract and sweetener/sugar in a wide shallow bowl.
  2. Spread 1 teaspoon of the Nutella or Hazelnut spread onto each slice and sandwich them together to make 2 sandwiches.
  3. Soak the sandwiches in the egg wash.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan/skillet with 1 teaspoon butter.
  5. Fry the egg-soaked sandwiches on low - medium heat on both sides until golden.

And if you're feeling like indulging a bit more this weekend, the recipe also includes a how-to on some tasty cinnamon (or sugar) coating.

  1. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar (or cinnamon sugar mix) onto a small plate and press the French Toast sandwiches down until coated like a Churro or a sugared donut.
  2. Serve with 1 scoop frozen yoghurt, ice cream, fruit, berries, and/or more nutella!
  3. Drizzle alllll over your Donut French Toasts!!
