This isn't your run of the mill peanut butter toast. We're here to present you with some delicious topping options you may not have thought of - like dates, brown sugar bananas, and apple compote. Of course, Nutella is always a tasty option too.
💛 Why This Recipe Works
- It's fast! If you have 10 minutes, then you have time to make this recipe.
- It's nutritious. We recommend whole grain bread and all natural peanut butter. Together, they will give you the nutrition you need to tackle anything this morning.
- It's delicious. Peanut butter toast was my favorite breakfast when I was a kid and for good reason. It tastes amazing! Who says you have to be a kid to enjoy it though? We have provided some grown up topping options that will take your peanut butter toast to the next level!
- ½ cup peanut butter. Crunchy or creamy. We recommend all natural peanut butter. Sometimes we make our own using the method described in this walnut butter recipe. If we don't have time for that, we are able to grind it fresh at our local grocery store. The nice thing about fresh ground peanut butter is that you can be sure that it contains no preservatives and added sugar - only healthy and wholesome peanuts.
- 4 slices whole grain sourdough bread. Toasted. You don't have to use sourdough. We prefer it for its tangy, earthy flavor. For the most healthy option, any whole grain bread will do. Of course, you can go with white bread as well.
- 2 medium medjool dates. Pitted and sliced about ¼ inch thick. Dates and peanut butter taste great together! Yum, yum, yum!!
- ½ medium banana. Sliced ¼ thick .
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar. The brown sugar brings out the flavor in the bananas and adds a little sweetness.
- ½ medium apple. Peeled, cored and chopped. Use your favorite apple variety. Homemade apple compote tastes great too!
- 2 teaspoons Nutella. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Nutella. Ever.
Step 3. Spread the peanut butter on the toasts, dividing equally.
Step 4. Top one toast with banana mixture, one with dates, one with Nutella and one with the chopped apple or apple compote.
💡 More Topping Ideas
- Fresh fruit. Fresh berries or halved fresh cherries make for a great topping option also.
- Homemade compote or fruit syrup. How about couple of dollops of homemade strawberry compote, or a drizzle of blueberry, mixed berry, or raspberry syrup? It's like a grownup version of a pb&J for breakfast!
- Natural Honey. A drizzle of natural honey would finish this off nicely!
