I go through a lot of “breakfast go-to” phases. Most of the time it’s savory, but every once in a while I get a major sweet tooth in la mañana. Lately, it’s been toast with coconut almond butter (my new fav nut butter) and a medley of fresh fruit. It’s like a grown up PB&J that’s good for you!
Lots of fruit is in season with summer just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of local farmers markets. I’m trying to make it a point this summer to get more of my produce from the farmers market instead of the grocery store. It’s a great way to support local businesses and the community. Yay local!
OK—back to the toast.
I know that breakfast is often skipped because people are in a rush and don’t have time to eat in the morning. If you are one of these people, this toast is for you. It’s super quick and surprisingly filling. The sweet fruit complements the nutty almond butter, and the toast gives it some substance to fill you up. Plus, you can use whatever fruit/nut butter/bread you have on hand. The possibilities are endless, and I can guarantee any combination is going to taste great. It only takes a few minutes, so no excuses! Eat some damn breakfast.
- Sliced bread—wheat, sourdough, rye, ezekiel, Wonder, pumpernickel, etc.

Toast bread. Slather on your nut butter of choice. Top with fruit. Chow.
