It's been a while since I posted a yummy breakfast toast, so I'm back at it again! After a rather long and exhaustive birthday weekend with my 5 year old, I needed something easy, healthy, and rather delicious to have for breakfast this week.
Happy 5th Birthday Lily!
I decided to go with a sun butter instead of a nut butter just because I know that there are a lot of those out there with peanut allergies, and I wanted to show that this breakfast toast could proudly be made and eaten by them too!
Plus, my little one isn't allowed to have any nut butter at school, and is a peanut butter fiend, so I always have sun butter in my pantry. But, any peanut butter or peanut butter substitute will work here, nut based or not. You'll just want to make any needed adjustments to the nutritional information below if you do swap the sun butter out.
I don't know about you, but when I think of peanut butter (or any variation of it), one of my first thoughts is always banana! So, to go with it - I added some healthy chia seeds. You can also top it with a small drizzle of raw honey if desired to add a touch of sweetness.
This is a great breakfast or even a nice snack option that will help you get through your day. The sun butter, banana, and chia seeds work well together to fill you up and keep your stomach full and your mind fueled.
I gotta say too, don't let this toast fool you! It's really rather filling. Once those chia seeds go to work and start expanding, you'll get that wonderful boost of energy and a perfectly satisfied tummy.
