Almond Butter Toast with Bananas

This almond butter toast is one of my breakfast favorites. It’s filling, nutritious, and quick to assemble. While the “standard” version I usually make only requires a few staple ingredients, this recipe is insanely customizable and you can up-level it with barely any effort. I started prepping my other ingredients as soon as I put my bread in the toaster, and I was ready to rumble by the time my toast popped out.

Almond Butter Toast

Here are the main ingredients:

  • Bread: any kind of bread will work, but I love using thinly sliced bread, seeded bread, or multi-grain bread for that extra fiber, protein, and nutrients first thing in the morning.
  • Nut butter: Almond butter is great, but there are so many other options. Peanut butter, cashew butter, chocolate hazelnut butter, cookie butter – use one, use them all. Nut butters are generally a good source of protein and healthy fat.
  • Fruit: if you hate bananas, don’t fret. Thinly sliced strawberries or apples are great alternatives, as are smashed berries.

Here are some optional additions to take your almond butter toast to the next level:

  • Chia seeds: these little guys are incredibly nutrient-rich. We’re talking fiber, protein, healthy fats, and other minerals like calcium, manganese, and magnesium.
  • Mini chocolate chips: these are like tiny bursts of flavor, and a just a few will go a very long way. It’s great to add some crunch as well, especially if your nut butter is a smooth and creamy one. Hot tip, mix your chocolate chips in with the almond butter before you spread it on the toast. It incorporates much better than if you just sprinkle it on.
  • Honey: if chocolate isn’t your jam, another sweetener like a drizzle of honey is *chef’s kiss.*
  • Sea-salt: add if your almond butter is not already salted.
  • Cinnamon and/or nutmeg: Cinnamon can lower blood sugar, help with digestion, and contains anti-oxidants. Plus, it tastes amazing.
