• How does everything just taste better on a stick? I mean a lollipop would purely be a sucking a candy, licking the candy/caramel off of an apple would not be nearly as fun, cotton candy would turn into clouds of sugary mess and an ice cream popsicle would just be a Klondike bar (Although there is nothing I would not do for a Klondike Bar!!) Yes, these are highly junky examples, but if the “stick sensation” works for the kids, let’s run with it. Here we have my “Stuffed Almond Butter & Strawberry Jam French Toast Kabobs.” I simply have combined a classic kid-friendly sandwich and twisted it up with a breakfast favorite. Cut it up onto a stick and you just became the most creative mom/dad your child has ever seen

Ingredients

  • •8 slices challah bread (about 1-inch thick)
  • •1/2 cup fresh almond butter (I prefer it ground right fresh out of the machine)

  • •1/3 cup strawberry jam
  • •1 cup low fat milk
  • •7 large eggs beaten
  • •1 teaspoon vanilla extract
