We’d Like to Make a Toast

Ever find yourself in a major food rut? You know the feeling: despite a semi-stocked fridge, you still can’t figure out what to eat. Meet the easiest—and most delicious—solution: toast! For dinner! But not just any toast, mind you. We’re talking toast slathered in a protein-packed layer of gooey almond butter, thick slices of perfectly ripe banana, a generous sprinkle of shaved coconut, a drizzle of honey, and finished with just a pinch of fancy salt. Suddenly, in under 10 minutes, you’ve got a nutrient-rich—and kid-approved—meal the whole family will love.

Toast for Dinner—It’s Really Good (And Easy)

Though the ingredients in our nut butter toast likely make you think of it as a breakfast dish, toast for dinner is actually divine! Here are just a few reasons why we love serving fancy toast for dinner:

  • It’s just so easy. In under 10 minutes you’ve got a complete, healthy meal to put on the table for your family. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s missing anything!
  • It’s a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into one spot. Kids can be picky. And more times than not they’ll selectively choose what on their plate they want to eat and what they’ll push aside. But when it’s all beautifully stacked on a piece of bread, to them it becomes just one entity and more often than not they’ll simply bite through the entire stack.
  • Turn it into an all-hands-on-deck family activity. When kids become active participants in making their food they’re way more likely to eat it. Plus, steering kids to make some of their own decisions helps boost their self-esteem and create a sense of autonomy. To turn toast into an interactive mealtime activity, simply set everything unassembled on the table and let the kids decide which toppings they want and the order in which they’ll go on their toast.

Ingredients to Make Our Banana and Almond Butter Toast

Just a few simple ingredients and you’re well on your way to toast-topping perfection:

  • Tasty bread. We like the way a good multi-grain slice adds an earthy balance to the bananas and honey here, but it’d also be divine on sourdough.
  • Almond butter. If you don’t love almond butter, feel free to swap in another nut butter of your choosing, like cashew butter or even classic peanut butter.
  • Banana. We like the look and texture of banana slices on top of our almond butter toast, but you could also mash and spread.
  • Honey. Drizzle as little or as much as you’d like.
  • Flaked coconut. Coconut adds both healthy fats and flavor to this nut butter toast.
  • Maldon sea salt. There’s just something about a sprinkling of Maldon sea salt flakes that seems to add the perfect finishing flavor to anything it touches.
