Fluffernutter Corn Flake Stuffed French Toast

in Breakfast, Desserts, Sandwiches

This is kind of an insane recipe title. I understand. I do.

You’re really supposed to be gawking at a fried fluffernutter sandwich, BUT when I posted the picture (above) on Instagram/Twitter, people started asking me if it was French toast. I was conflicted.

Do I fry these cute little heart shaped marshmallow things? Or do I just put it in a pan with a little butter? Sort of a no-brainer, right? Yes, total no-brainer.

French toast sounds healthier. We like this…even if it’s a total lie, we still like it. Also, if you want to be a total psycho, you can even have this for breakfast, rather than for dessert. I have no objections. Lastly, no hot oil.

Hot oil isn’t romantic; French toast is (I think?)…

There’s some good stuff in this fluffernutter sandwich.

There’s some really fluffy marshmallow fluff. Duh.

Peanut butter. And no, not the organic, real stuff. There’s no place for authenticity and/or nutrition in this sandwich. You need creamy Jiff. Do it right!

I put a few slices of banana in there. I so appreciate the classic pairing of banana and peanut butter. So underrated (or maybe it’s not?).

Then a little dip in egg, a roll around in some crushed up corn flakes…and it’s ready for some cook time.

This is kind of the easiest dessert in the world. And yes, like I said earlier, if you want to be a psycho and make it for breakfast and put maple syrup on it, then you’re my hero. Seriously.

Flutternutter Corn Flake Stuffed French Toast

Print this recipe!

4 slices of white bread
2 teaspoons marshmallow fluff
2 teaspoons creamy peanut butter
1/4 banana, thinly sliced
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup corn flakes, crushed
2 tablespoon unsalted butter

1. Lay the bread side-by-side. Using a heart cookie cutter (or not!), cut out four heart shapes in the bread.

2. Spread the marshmallow fluff on two of the heart-shaped pieces of bread. Do the same with the peanut butter. Top with a few slices of banana. Combine the opposing slices, creating a heart-shaped sandwich. This is when it starts to get cute, guys.

3. Dip the sandwich into the beaten egg and then transfer to the crushed corn flakes, being sure to cover the sandwich’s sides. Repeat with the second sandwich.

4. Heat the butter, in a medium skillet, over medium-heat. When melted add the French toast and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and cook on opposite side for a minute or two more.

Yields 2 heart sandwiches

WOW. Coming from someone who only ate that type of sandwich for most of her formative years, that looks wondrous.

O wow that is such a cute idea!! BTW I love your plates. Where did you find them?


Adrienne @ How to Ice a Cake February 8, 2012 at 5:47 am

I could totally get on board with this. I feel like corn flakes for whatever reason take dessert dishes to the next level. Have you ever had vanilla ice cream rolled in corn flakes? The simplest thing ever but it’s so gosh darn addicting!


Heike Herrling February 9, 2012 at 1:45 am

Don’t know what I expected when I saw your first twitter pic, but it wasn’t this. This is unimaginably delicious looking!

http://WWW.heikeherrling.com … but it tasted good!

You win.
I’ve been trying to come up with delicious breakfast for two ideas for Valentine’s Day, but nothing tops this. I want fried cornflakes for breakfast! :)


Allyn February 8, 2012 at 6:46 am

My favorite meal when I went to Disney World as a kid was a peanut butter and marshmallow creme sandwich.
Yes, that’s one of my most vivid memories of the entire trip. A sandwich. Which I think I managed to eat more than once during our trip.
Clearly, food has always been important to me. Sheesh.


Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray February 8, 2012 at 6:47 am

This is insane in the best possible way and I completely love it. Win.


Erin February 8, 2012 at 7:22 am

I would totally eat this for breakfast in a heart beat. Peanut butter has protein after all, and there’s fruit! And don’t forget you are rolling it in cereal afterall. Totally insane and I love it.


Emilie @ Emilie's Enjoyables February 8, 2012 at 7:40 am

A banana is incomplete without peanut butter. Totally appreciated over here :)


Elizabeth @ chronic venture February 8, 2012 at 7:45 am

There’s a place in Baltimore called the Blue Moon Cafe where they make Cap’n Crunch French Toast. Texas toast bread, dipped in eggs and cream, and then rolled in crushed Cap’n Crunch. Heaven. Delicious heaven.


Margarita February 8, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Rebecca February 9, 2012 at 8:42 am

My jaw dropped when I saw this. The little kid inside of me also wants to add a layer of nutella… Sugar overload? Well, that’s all right with me!


sunnye February 9, 2012 at 11:58 am

i must have this now! no seriously, i’m going to make one asap


Shawna @ CheekyChicFamily February 9, 2012 at 1:53 pm

I mentioned to my husband once about eating a fluffernutter sandwich and he looked at me like I was crazy. He’d never heard of such a thing and though it sounded totally weird. I ate them my whole life and we grew up one street apart….I don’t know how he survived childhood without fluffernutter sandwiches. This would be a great dessert for Valentines day….I can show him what he’s been missing all these years.


Adrianna February 9, 2012 at 2:09 pm

You guys grew up a street apart?! Holy geez that’s cute!


Shawna @ CheekyChicFamily February 9, 2012 at 7:59 pm

You probably won’t believe me but…his name is Shawn. We’re Shawn and Shawna. :)

Angela @ The Dancer Bakes February 9, 2012 at 6:01 pm

This is officially too cute! And peanut butter banana is pretty much my favorite combination EVER. Such a win!


Vicky February 9, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Wow, that a great twist on french Toast! I love it! brilliant combination!


Dana February 9, 2012 at 9:05 pm
