Almond butter toast gets a protein boost with the addition NOW Sports Organic Plant Protein.
At Fit Approach HQ, we take toast very seriously. In fact, we have an Instagram message group called the Fancy Toasters for the sole purpose of sharing our toast creations – it’s equal parts bragging rights and inspiration.
For us, the love for toast goes far beyond the enjoyment we get from eating it, we love the whole process – there’s something almost meditative about toasting fresh bread, selecting toppings, and meticulously arranging our toppings.
Not a toast fan? Have you seen the New Yorker’s video about bread yet? It might help you change your mind…
While a good toast may start with the bread, creating an excellent toast is all about the toppings. Thanks to NOW Foods, we have an array of delicious toppings to choose from to create beautiful, delicious and healthy toasts that can be enjoyed first thing in the morning or as a late night snack.
Protein Packed Almond Butter Toast
Prep/cook time: 10 minutes
2 Tablespoons NOW Sports Organic Plant Protein, chocolate flavor
4 Tablespoons of almond butter, home ground or store bought are both fine
A pinch of himalayan salt to taste
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 medium size pieces of bread
Additional topping ideas:
- Combine all protein butter ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add more salt and vanilla to taste. If the mixture is dry, add a tablespoon of coconut oil or water. Set protein butter aside.
- Place toast in a toaster oven and cook on your desired toast setting
- While toast is cooking, slice fresh fruit and assemble all desired toast toppings.
- Once toast is ready, place on a cutting board or plate, top with protein butter and your desired toppings and enjoy!
