i have read plenty of info about how breakfast is the most important meal of the day but it’s hard. since i can’t drink milk, i’d have to account for more prep time but i can barely make myself get my morning coffee, let alone batter, sizzle or bake anything. so, in order for me to have breakfast, it just had to be easy.
so the next best thing is toast. gone is the yummy soft white bread with a nice light smear of butter and toasted to perfection … sigh. now it’s the healthy multigrain or 100% whole wheat bread, which i don’t mind … as long as it is masked with something yummy … like crunchy peanut butter. even better, a coworker introduced me to peanut butter that doesn’t add sugar, i.e. Smuckers Natural.
without sugar, peanut butter i grew up with tastes kinda … salty … so i like my peanut butter toast with banana, a nice, healthy, natural sweetener. then one day, i was at trader joe’s and i found one of their line peanut butter with no sugar AND with flaxseed – and that’s what made my new breakfast toast. peanut butter, flaxseed and banana toast. the flaxseed adds high dosage of fiber and is barely noticeable, especially with crunchy peanut butter. so you can start off your day with a healthy kick with all the flavors from your childhood. good morning!
- 1 slice multigrain or 100% whole wheat toast
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter – no salt or sugar added
- 1-2 tablespoons flaxseed
- 1/2 – 1 banana, long thick slices
Lightly toast your multigrain bread. Smear the peanut butter on your toast. Sprinkle flaxseed on top of the spread – cover all the spread. Then cover the flaxseed covered spread with banana. Enjoy!
