Toast Topping Ideas

A good piece of bread calls for a great topping.  Here are few favorites.  I use gluten free bread but feel free to use any other kind of bread.  If you use light bread (50 calories or less per slice) subtract 40 calories from each recipe except the "Banana Almond Butter Sandwich - subtract 80 calories for that one. 

Peanut Butter Berry Toast:

1/2 cup berries

1 pkg. Truvia

1 slice gluten free bread

1 Tables spoon Peanut Butter

Pinch of Nutmeg

* Mash berries with a fork, and sprinkle with Truvia. Toast bread. Spread with Peanut Butter, top with crushed berries and sprinkle with nutmeg

* 225 calories

Apple Almond Butter Toast

½ c sliced apple

1 slice gluten free bread

1 Tablespoon Almond Butter

1 pkg. Truvia

Dash of cinnamon

  1. Going to have to try these since toast used to be one of my fave 'grab n go' breakfasts. I like it with peanut butter & honey. Oh, how I miss that! Maybe one of these will take it's place!
