Recipe: Strawberry Peanut Butter Breakfast

If you have tons of fresh strawberries from the farmer’s market, this recipe is an easy and different way to use them up. If you don’t have fresh strawberries, please go out and buy some! They’re great right now. And then you can make this recipe, which you are definitely going to want to do.

This recipe is healthy – defined loosely by me as a meal that is low fat or has healthy fats (peanut butter – check!), made up mainly of a fruit or vegetable (strawberries – check!), and has lots of protein (multi grain bread and peanut butter – check!). It’s unexpected and yummy, and really quick for breakfast or an in-between-meals snack.

Just look at those strawberries. Dang.

Ingredients:
6-8 medium-sized fresh strawberries, sliced
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 sandwich thin (I like Trader Joe’s multi grain but Arnold’s brand is good too)

To make:
1. Toast the sandwich thin halves in the toaster oven until they reach your preferred crispiness level.
2. Meanwhile, slice the strawberries if they are not sliced already.
3. Once the sandwich thins are toasted, top with the peanut butter. It will get a little melty and gooey. This is good. If you don’t think this is good, let the sandwich thins cool a bit first.
4. Add your sliced strawberries. You can smoosh it together to create a sandwich, but I prefer mine open-faced so I can add a lot of strawberries.
5. That’s it!
