6 Toast Topper Ideas
My very first “foodie” post! You know I couldn't help myself. It was just a matter of time!
Feeling a little hungry mid-day between breakfast and lunch? I have 6 toast ideas that will be sure to satisfy your hunger! These simple recipes are quick and convenient when you're on the go! I love to take these to work or have one before a workout for a little boost of energy!
For the bread base, I used a 7 grain wheat bread. You can toast them in the toaster or bake them. The toaster is a more convenient & quicker way to do it. If you have more time and would like to toast the bread using the oven : Turn the oven to broil, and put the sheet pan on the top rack of the oven, closest to the broiler. Keep an eye on the toast, as it will brown quickly — 2 minutes on each side.
Now that you bread is toasted, let's get into how to dress it up!
1. Yummy berry toast
This toast topper idea is perfect when you want something sweet! It seriously hits the spot! Plus, it's so simple that it can be made in minutes.
Spread the Greek yogurt evenly (I prefer vanilla)
Add your favorite combo of berries (I used raspberries & blackberries)
Sprinkle chia seeds if you would like
2. Bannana-peanut butter Toast
For this recipe, I used peanut butter but you could definitely use almond butter or ABC butter (almonds, Brazil nuts, & cashews). This topper idea is great before a workout or if you're feeling a little low on energy
Spread the peanut butter evenly
Cut and add a few slices of banana
Sprinkle coconut flakes on top
3. Avacado-Pesto Toast
Who knew that a simple marriage between avocado and pesto would be so good! This simple recipe will definitely satisfy your savory craving.
Spread pesto evenly
Slice avocado and place on top of pesto spread
Add lemon juice of you would like!
4. TOMATO & hummus toast
This toast topper idea is one of my favorites! I'm usually not a fan of tomatoes but this one was so delicious!
Evenly spread your favorite hummus flavor (I like to use classic hummus)
Cut your tomatoes in half and place them evenly
Sprinkle cracked pepper
5. Cream-cheese & Cucumber toast
This recipe is so simple and easy it's crazy!
Spread your cream cheese evenly
Cut your cucumber slices thinly and place them on top of the spread
Sprinkle cracked pepper as desired
6. Strawberry-Nutella Toast
This one was also another favorite of mine! I mean it has Nutella...c'mon! I like to warm up the Nutella a bit before spreading it on my bread.
Spread warm Nutella evenly
Cut and place strawberries
add a little bit of mint!
