Fruity Nut Butter Toast

Need a quick and easy breakfast? An on-the-go lunch? A kid-friendly snack? Finding a plant based option in these situations doesn’t have to be hard. If you’re needing variety, this toast can have a different flavor every time you make it. The topping options are endless – sliced strawberries or bananas, halved grapes, blueberries, raspberries, thinly sliced peaches, apples or pears or even goji berries. If you really want to get fancy, sprinkle cinnamon, ground flaxseed or chia seeds on top.

When choosing bread there are some options that are more whole, and therefore more nutrient rich. Look for breads that contain only whole grains and that are more coarsely ground. The front of a package can be deceiving as “made with whole grains” often means that it contains some whole grains but also refined flour. When grains are refined the bran and germ, which contain most of the nutrients, are stripped away.

Be sure your bread says 100% before the type of whole grain (wheat, rye, barley, millet, oat). Amazingly many “whole grain” breads are simply white bread with a little whole wheat flour and food coloring added.

We recommend sprouted grain breads which are made from grains that are allowed to sprout and then are ground up. These offer the most nutrition bang for your buck. Here are some sprouted grain products that we recommend:


  • Trader Joe’s Sprouted 7-Grain Bread
  • Trader Joe’s Sprouted Rye Multi-Grain Bread
  • Food for Life 7 Sprouted Grains Bread
  • Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Bread
  • Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Tortillas
  • Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Wheat Multi-Grain
  • Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Whole Wheat
  • Alvarado Street Bakery No Salt Sprouted Multi-Grain
  • Manna Organics Multigrain Bread
  • Manna Organics Sunseed Bread

While we like to keep bread around for quick and easy meals, we don’t use it frequently so its stored it in the freezer. We can then grab what we need and quickly heat it in the toaster. It can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months.
