You guys are always asking me for healthy snack options, so here’s one! It’s a little more filling & sustaining than a fruit or rice cakes, but it’s definitely a good option to hold you over until dinnertime/if you have late dinner plans! That’s actually why I made this. Yesterday, I had a SUPER BUSY DAY & also had plans to go out for dinner & I didn’t want to get to the restaurant feeling HANGRY & starved, especially after not having had time to eat a proper lunch!
This almond butter & tart cherry spread toast was the perfect concoction to hold me over until dinner! It takes only five minutes to prepare & it’s packed with tons of health benefits!
I simply topped a slice of Ezekiel sesame toast (SPROUTED, BTW) with some organic tart cherry jam (but I also love apple butter or homemade jam!), raw organic creamy almond butter, strawberries & blueberries & sealed the deal with a drizzle of Ceylon cinnamon! Pretty simple, no?
P.S. If you want a recipe for homemade jam, HERE YOU GO BABES: Kelly’s Clean-Eating Refined Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free & Vegan Vanilla Cinnamon Mixed Berry Jam a.k.a. It-Don’t-Get-Better-Than-This-Oh-&-Wait-Why-Do-I-Already-See-The-Bottom-Of-My-Jar-OOPSIE! I have a few other ones on here but that one is my all-time fave!!
The snack is:
Delicious & nutritious!
Antioxidant rich thanks to the berries & tart cherry spread!
Provides a good balance of all your macros (protein, fats & good carbs!)
Totally filling & satisfying!
Sprouted grains = MORE nutrients than their refined counterparts!
Anti-inflammatory & anti-microbial!
Vitamin C rich!
Vegan! Refined-sugar free, even gluten-free, if you swap for a GF bread option OR & nut-free if you swap for sunflower seed butter!
I COULD GO ON FOR DAYS, SERIOUSLY.
But I won’t. I know you guys want this snack now. So MAKE IT!
My loves, YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 (or 2) slices of Ezekiel sprouted toast (or gluten-free toast for GF option!);
- 1/2 tbsp. raw organic creamy almond butter;
- 1 tbsp. tart jerry buter (or apple butter or other jam/spread);
- A few sliced strawberries;
- A handful of fresh blueberries;
- Ceylon cinnamon!
I really don’t think I need to tell you how to assemble this, now do I? DO IT. & DEVOUR IT!!!!!
