You need some Nutella french toast in your life this weekend.

No rushing to get out the door for school or work.

If you’re here I’m assuming you’re a Nutella fan and let me tell you, so am I.

This delicious hazelnut spread goes great on so many things but it’s especially incredible in this recipe.

There’s something about the warm Nutella with the cinnamon sugar. It’s amazing!

I actually got this inspiration for this recipe from a post that I saw on instagram from @fitwafflekitchen.

Do I have to use Nutella?

We’ll, this is Nutella french toast so I would recommend it strongly but you don’t have to use it.

Peanut butter would be a nice alternative or any flavor jam or jelly would work, too.

What bread should I use?

I used regular white bread slices with the crust cut off but you can use whatever you’d like.

Brioche or challah bread works very well but the choice is yours completely.
