Sarah and I have many things in common but our love of toasted bread spread with nut butter and topped with thin slices of fresh fruit is one worth sharing with y’all. Sarah has a cute story that she would pack such a sandwich as her lunch in Grad school and her fellow students would marvel at the concept of the fresh fruit version of PB&J. When we first met we admitted to eating close to a jar of peanut butter a week in this fashion but in an effort to be healthier I have switched to almond butter (most of the time.)
This is my go to healthy breakfast or afternoon snack, in fact I’m getting almond butter on my computer as I write this post before I rush off to work.
When fresh fruit can not be procured in the wee hours of the morning, SQIRL Jam is an excellent substitution (Kumquat Marmalade pictured above.) Below is all my favorite brands if you want to try this “recipe”. I use Gluten Free bread because that is the bread we keep in our house and I just don’t miss the gluten in this instance.
Toast with Almond Butter and Fresh Fruit
2 slices whole wheat bread (I like Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread)
2 tablespoons Almond Butter (I like raw, creamy, unsalted almond butters)
Fresh fruit thinly sliced (strawberries, banana, nectarine, peach, plum, apple, pear or just a pile of berries)
Hope you love it too!

This is my favorite…I especially love taking a pile of berries and smushing them with a knife into the nut butter. I also like to use kashi blueberry waffles instead of bread sometimes!
