Need a quick and healthy breakfast idea? Toast up a slice a whole grain bread, spread on peanut butter or almond butter and top with your favorite toppings!

I’ve never been a huge toast for breakfast person — unless you count that period of childhood where I used to slather Wonder Bread with loads of butter and shake on so much Sugar ‘N Cinnamon (from one of these characters) that it ended up looking like a sand covered beach toy. Yes, that happened.

I guess toast always seemed a little plain, not super healthy and not very filling. Things changed once I found out that there are some healthy breads out there (like Sprouted Grain Ezekiel bread). I began to make toast more often and started experimenting with different toppings. I think this was also around the same time I was introduced to the world of nut butters beyond plain ol’ peanut butter. I’ve always had a deep love for peanut butter (it goes waaay back) but there are so many delicious varieties out there now and having toast for breakfast is just another way to eat more nut butter. Am I right?

Peanut Butter Breakfast Toast 4 Ways

Nowadays I consider toast with peanut butter or almond butter one of my go-to breakfast options, especially on mornings when I’m running out of the house for barre class.

Healthy Portable Breakfast = Peanut Butter Toast with Berries

Toast, spread, sprinkle, place on a paper towel and GO!

Breakfast toast is super easy to whip up and we always seem to have bread, nut butter and toppings on hand. That’s one thing I love about the Food for Life bread and many other health-focused breads — they’re kept in the freezer so you don’t have to worry about it going bad quickly.

I’ve also found that many of my health coaching clients love having toast with nut butter for breakfast. It tastes so good, it’s almost like a treat and something they look forward to. If you choose the right bread (whole grain is best), a natural nut butter and healthy toppings, you have yourself a health coach approved breakfast.

And don’t let the name fool you, this toast also makes a great pre-workout snack option as well. It’s easy to digest and has both simple and complex carbs to give you plenty of energy while you exercise.

Since there really isn’t a recipe, I thought it would be fun to share a few breakfast toast combos that I enjoy — some a little more decadent than others.

For the base, choose a whole grain bread and spread on whatever nut butter you fancy. I used Reginald’s Homemade peanut butter here, but I love natural almond butter as well and you can use any type of nut butter your little heart desires.

Nest step, load up on toppings, just like fro-yo!

Banana Blueberry Raspberry Peanut Butter Toast

Keep it simple and healthy with Banana + Blueberries + Raspberries.

Banana Blueberry Chia Seed Peanut Butter Toast

Banana + Blueberries + Chia Seeds = cha cha chia!

Banana Blueberry Chocolate Chia Seed Peanut Butter Toast

Banana + Blueberries + Chia Seeds + Chocolate Chips = same as above only better because there’s chocolate involved.

Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Toast

Banana +  Mini Chocolate Chips = peanut butter, chocolate and banana is one of the best combos ever! And who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast?

  1. My favorite topping for peanut butter toast is definitely dark chocolate chips. Who doesn’t want to eat chocolate for breakfast? 😉

  2. YES, I am such a toast for breakfast kind of girl… and YES, I do look forward to it! Currently: GF whole grain bread + almond butter + low-sugar apricot jam + SO much hemp seeds!! #healthcoachapproved

  3. Yup, I definitely agree with you on that last combo! I never have toast for breakfast but always crave it for snacks / desserts. 🙂

  4. Hi Brittany! I haven’t been eating toast as often as I used to. But I always topped it with peanut butter and bananas, of course. It’s just so simple, and with the right bread is a perfect breakfast. Happy Wednesday! 🙂

  5. Awesome post! I love mine with almond butter+apricot butter+hemp seeds+blueberries. Another good combo is cashew butter+coconut shredded+flaxseeds+bananas!

  6. I love toast with nut butter for breakfast! It really does taste like a treat. My favorite toppings are almond butter, banana, chia seeds, and honey!

  7. Sorry! I ate just like you as a kid. Except we didn’t have fancy cinnamon and sugar mixed together. Had to add each separate. Toast with nut butter, bananas or pears is definitely a go to breakfast for me.

  8. Yum..Superb recipe.I love it.Thanks for sharing awesome post.Please describe me briefly about this one dish.

  9. I love this post! I go in phases with peanut butter toast, it’s been a while since I had it for breakfast. I love it with chia seeds and strawberries, chunky peanut butter preferably! 🙂

  10. Looks delish!! What type of bread did you use for your pics? It looks like the perfect size for a quick morning snack!

  11. I haven’t had just toast probably since college, mainly because I’m always hungry. How long do you normally stay full for after eating just one slice? I may try it again… Life has been so hectic lately!

    1. If I were having it for breakfast I’d probably have two slices or add a hardboiled egg for some additional protein and staying power. Typically I’ll have one slice before I workout and a little something more after my workout — almost like 2 breakfasts. 🙂

  12. I love this – I’m a frequent almond butter toast eater 🙂 I usually use Justin’s vanilla or maple almond butter with cinnamon and fruit. It’s so good and I agree with you that it’s like a little dessert in the morning 🙂

  13. What I do for my peanut butter toast is toast the bread and add butter then put it back in the toaster(I am aware this is probably not the best for a toaster but I’ve been doing it for years in my toaster seems to be doing okay) so the butter gets bubbly then take out of the toaster and add peanut butter. It is delicious!!!!

  14. 5 stars
    So good! I’ve been having wheat toast, chunky peanut butter, sliced strawberries, sprinkle of cinnamon, and drizzle of honey. Delicious, and it goes so well with my mug if hot black tea.

  15. Such A Great Blog. Thank U For Sharing Useful Information About whats-the-difference-between-peanut-butter-and-jam.
