Fresh Strawberry Almond Butter Toast

Fresh Strawberry Almond Butter Toast

Looking for a fresh, new breakfast or snack idea? Concentrated sweets such as jam, jelly and honey tend to spike blood sugar levels so consider opting for fresh fruit as a swap-out. These fresh, sweet strawberries make an amazing addition with nutty almond butter and high-fiber bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice high-fiber 100% whole grain bread
  • 1-2 fresh strawberries
  • 2 tsp unsalted almond butter (or your favorite unsweetened nut butter)

Makes 1

Directions

  1. Toast up your bread until it’s nice an toasty so it will hold your delicious toppings.
  2. Spread a layer of nutty almond butter.
  3. Top with thinly sliced fresh strawberries.
  4. Tips: When shopping for bread choose one that says, “100% whole grain” and one that has a minimum of 3 grams of fiber per slice. Try this with any of your favorite unsweetened nut butters. It’s also delicious with halved raspberries, fresh blueberries, sliced peach or sliced kiwi.
