Nut Butter Breakfast Toast
Updated: Nov 17
A hearty, flavorful breakfast that takes less than 10 minutes and satisfies both salty and sweet cravings. It's the best of both breakfasts!
This is honestly one of my favorite go-to breakfasts, especially on those crazy mornings (and there seem to be an increasing amount of those recently with a 1.5 year old and a newborn in-tow), because it's easy, healthy, super flavorful, and fast.
How fast? About as long as it takes to toast two slices of bread, because in that time, you can get the rest of it ready :)
Now, let's make Nut Butter Breakfast Toast!
First, grab your favorite breakfast bread - I love using multigrain because it has a nutty, slightly sweet flavor to it, and it's a great way to get some fiber in early to get things going... if you know what I mean! Then, toss a few slices into the toaster.
While you're waiting, grab your nut butter. I use peanut butter most of the time, but almond butter works great, too. Choose which seeds, nuts, fruit and sweetener you want to use. Remember, you can do different things with each slice! I put bananas, hemp seeds and cinnamon on one slice, and bananas, roasted + salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and maple syrup on the other. You can add chia seeds, sunflower seeds, or even dry toasted pecans (Trader Joe's has the BEST).
For your fruit, bananas have always been a favorite of mine on toast, but feel free to add strawberries, raisins, raspberries, or anything that tickles your fancy. Get creative! I think a great combo would be peanut butter with apples, cinnamon and raisins. Yum. Sweeten the deal with maple syrup, agave, coconut sugar, or a sugar substitute like monk fruit or Stevia.
Once you try a few different combinations of nut butter and toppings, you're sure to add this easy, healthy breakfast into your weekly rotation.
How am I so sure? Because, this toast can be:
& super simple!
This recipe is very forgiving and adaptable to whatever you're craving. Switch up the nut butter, fruit and toppings, and you've got a completely different breakfast the next day!
