The Best Nut Butter Banana Toast

 1.5 fat, 1 fruit, 1 grain, 2 protein20140324-155018.jpg

One thing I love to do is make “grown up” alternatives to the typical kids menu. (Check out this chocolate milk turned into an “adult cocoa blend“- haha!). Today I decided to revamp another classic: PB&Banana Sandwiches. Here’s what your average PB&B looks like:

Throw out the simple carbohydrates (white bread) and the unnatural ‘peanut butter’ (filled with hydrogenated oils aka trans fats and added sugar). Swap them out with these sophisticated alternatives:

1 piece of bread (I used Ezekiel Sprouted Whole Grain Bread) [1 grain, 1 protein]

1/2 large banana [1 fruit]

1 tbsp almond butter [1 protein, 1 fat]

3 almonds, chopped [1/2 fat]

>>Toast the bread and top with 1 tbsp almond butter. Take 1/4 of a banana and mash it onto your toast. Top toast with another 1/4 banana, sliced. Chop 3 almonds and sprinkle on top. Add cinnamon, agave or honey.

What’s your favorite “kid’s” sandwich?
