The sweet, warm aromas of butter and spices will have your kids jumping out of bed and running to the kitchen for breakfast, then after one bite they won’t be able to resist these Cookie Butter French Toast Roll-Ups with Maple Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce.
Cookie Butter French Toast Roll-Ups with Maple Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce
You know what seems to be my bread and butter – just squeaking out my blog posts the day before they are planned or due. This is not a good situation. I am not a procrastinator – I’m just busy, and as much as I always want to get ahead, I never seem to. Oh well, someday. You know, when my kids are, like, 18 and 21.
So here I sit, the night before the Improv Challenge, sick as a dog, waiting for my Ibuprofen to kick in, trying to find something to write about. Well guess what. I’m gonna write about feeling achy and feverish, and all I wanna do is whine whine whine about how I’ve gotta write this post before I go to bed. But I just can’t miss an Improv Challenge, especially when I’ve have the recipe ready for weeks.
So here you go. My worst blog post ever.
But definitely not my worst recipe ever, which is why it had to get done.
I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t try these (dang wheat allergy, because boy oh boy do I wish I could eat more Cookie Butter, Speculoos, Biscoff Spread, whatever you want to call it), but with the way The Bug devoured these Cookie Butter French Toast Roll-Ups, and how The Hubby raved, I knew that they had to be shared with you. I could barely get the little guy to stop eating them. Maybe it was because he helped me make them, but I think it is really just because they are delicious!
I thought of just letting them dip the roll-ups in maple syrup, but I decided to mix up a little Greek yogurt with the syrup. The Hubby said this was perfect because the Greek yogurt cut some of the sweetness of the maple syrup and gave it a nice creaminess, making it balance nicely against the crisp cookie butter filled french toast.
This recipe is based on these Apple Butter French Toast Roll Ups from Carla of Chocolate Moosey. I saw her recipe and knew I had that jar of cookie butter calling my name, and I knew the spices would just be perfect. She used 16 slices of bread. I used 8, but definitely go ahead and double this – they reheat well, and I think you could probably even freeze them successfully to have a quick and easy special breakfast.
Are you a procrastinator?
Cookie Butter French Toast Roll-Ups
For the French Toast Roll-Ups:
For the Maple Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
For the French Toast Roll-Ups:
- Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
- Using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of bread. Evenly spread about 1 Tbsp cookie butter on top of each slice of bread, and roll up tightly, setting seam side down.
- In a shallow bowl, beat together the egg, milk, and 1/8 tsp cinnamon.
- Dip each roll up into the egg mixture to coat completely, sake off the excess, and place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven, and brush the top of each roll-up with melted butter. Flip the roll-ups and brush the other side with butter.
- Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
- While the roll-ups finish baking, in a small bowl, combine the sugar and remaining 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
- Immediately after taking the roll-ups out of the oven, roll each one in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Serve with Maple Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce or maple syrup.
For the Maple Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce
- Combine ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.

Really this would be special and great cookie butter french toast roll-ups recipe, Brianne! Love healthy food! Thanks, Brianne for sharing!
Thank you, Bella!
The colors are so vibrant – your photography is fantastic! Definitely cookie butter french toast roll-ups will be yummy! I look forward to trying this!
This recipe was fantastic! We didn’t have cookie butter in the house, so I substituted peanut butter. It was delicious (I love peanut butter toast anyway). The dipping sauce really made it extra good too – I used part Greek yogurt, and part sweet Mexican crema, and it was just jaw-dropping. I have a happy tummy and a happy boyfriend! Thank you!
Anything with peanut butter sounds good to me! Glad you enjoyed these!
This looks amazing! Thanks for sharing!
These were awesome!!!

Any day starting with Biscoff will be the best day everrr!! Yum!
Haha, right?! 🙂
I am a procrastinator too, Brianne. I like to think I work better under pressure but I am sure that I am just kidding myself most of the time. Oh, and I love this post! The recipe is great, the pictures are pretty and knowing that your family gave these French toast roll ups, two thumbs up, it will probably end up being one of your most popular!
I actually hate procrastinating, but these days, life just happens! Thanks Stacy!
These look decadent! I love a new breakfast idea, so thanks for sharing this recipe. Can’t wait to try it out!
Thanks! Yes, fun to have new breakfast ideas!
I looooove cookie butter! 🙂 It’s everything peanut butter wants to be and more. I can only imagine what cookie butter stuffed into french toast must taste like… my mouth is watering!!
Well, I am kind of partial to peanut butter, but this stuff is pretty darn good!
Yes, I am a procrastinator…but I don’t think I could come up with something this yummy at the last minute. Cookie butter with French toast? That is serious business! 🙂
Sometimes it’s all about thinking of what to do with what you have.
I still have not tried the cookie butter. Maybe because I hear how addicting it is and I really don’t need another food addiction! But if I ever do buckle, I will be trying it on this for sure!
I know, luckily I know I can’t eat much, or I totally would!
This was a delicious breakfast. Kids enjoyed helping with the preparation, and we all enjoyed eating it!
But shame on you for introducing cookie butter to us all! I don’t think we can live without it now!!!
I am soooo sorry! 🙂 I have an open jar that is calling my name, even though I know I’m not supposed to eat it.
Yum! I don’t bake enough with cookie butter, mainly because when I bring it in or share the recipe, I get 20 questions about cookie butter, what it is, where can I find it, etc. Since you only made 8 roll ups, that means I can eat them all in peace 😉 love that you mixed maple syrup with Greek yogurt.
I did get a couple questions, and some people saying they can’t get it. I got a free jar and had to use it 🙂 Mainly I only made 8 because the little guy was helping me and he has the attention span of a gnat. But next time I’ll make more and freeze them!
Love this idea- especially the cookie butter. Yum!!
Cookie butter makes everything better!
I’m so happy you mustered up the energy to post despite being sick because I’ve patiently been waiting to see this recipe ever since you gave us that little teaser 😉 These sound amazing! Want to know the best part? I have EVERYTHING I need to make them on hand which means my family and I will be making these in the morning. Can’t wait! Thanks for an awesome recipe.
Thanks Kate! I’m glad I got them posted. And of course now I got so far behind during those sick weeks that I am just responding to your comment 🙂
I hope you are feeling better! Those roll-ups would be a big hit with my wheat eating family, too. I will sit with you and watch them eat them 😉
It’s kind of sad to just have to watch, isn’t it?! 🙂
These look delicious! Will have to try this. I love cookie butter. Hope you feel better soon!
SO creative and SOOOO scrumptious!!! looove cookie butter!!!
You had me at cookie butter 😀 Yum yum yum yum
Yeah, cookie butter is a hook for a lot of people!
My kids would love this for breakfast! Looks amazing!
Definitely a kid-approved recipe!
I guess great minds do think alike! I made a version of french toast also!! I love yours and I bet the cookie butter gives it an awesome taste!
Bread + butter = french toast, right?! 🙂
I can’t believe how much I love this idea. The brilliant simplicity of the recipe is impressive!
Thanks so much Candace!
Being GF I had not encountered this phenomenon, thus had to google it… Oh.My.Goodness! Mama’s gotta make her some of that!
There has to be some GF copycat versions out there. If not, maybe it’s time to create one!
