The almond butter was a great addition to the french toast. I added a few toasted slivered almonds to the top for an extra crunch!

I made these for Valentine's Day lunch & took them in to my husband at work, everyone else was jealous! He can't have almonds, so I just used regular milk, but the heart shape idea was great! I made all the extra crusts & pieces into bread crumbs for use in later recipes.
