Peanut Butter Toast with Bananas, Chocolate, and Hemp Hearts

There is one breakfast so hearty and so richly nourishing, that it’s hard to believe it’s as simple as making toast. Peanut butter toast with bananas is a protein and vitamin-packed way to enjoy a quick breakfast and it also makes a sweet Mother’s Day or Father’s Day offering for breakfast in bed.

Unlike avocado toast, peanut butter toast is made simply by spreading peanut butter on toast instead of butter or margarine. There is no peeling, slicing, or scooping required. In fact, the whole recipe is so easy to throw together. The only knife work you need is cutting up a banana. Significantly easier than pitting and slicing an avocado for avocado toast.

Nutrition From Banana Peanut Butter Toast

If you ever had this treat growing up, you know what a game changer it is, especially when you top it with other healthy ingredients such as bananas and hemp hearts. Peanut butter toast is loaded with essential fat and protein for a hearty and substantial start to your morning. Bananas add a touch of sweetness and a whole host of additional health benefits, including antioxidants and potassium. Already this layered yet easily assembled breakfast item comes loaded with vitamins and minerals. We aren’t done yet, though.

Enhancing Your Peanut Butter Toast

The best recipes come with a sprinkling of a dash of extra flavour. You can really put this peanut butter toast over the top by giving it a touch of sweetness. I like to use grated chocolate for this. The type of chocolate is up to you. With banana, I prefer semisweet chocolate, but it goes with everything. Finish it off with a sprinkling of hemp hearts. These tiny nuts come packed with even more nutrients and are an easy way to give even more goodness to your small but mighty breakfast.

Which Type Of Bread To Use

For this recipe, I used brioche bread slices for a special breakfast kids can make and surprise mom and dad on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Brioche bread is actually a French bread made with butter and eggs. It’s light in texture and has a subtle sweet taste to it. The crust is soft, of golden shade, and is brushed with an egg before you bake it.

You can use any type of bread you like such as white, whole wheat, rye, sourdough, multigrain, and more. I prefer the thicker slices too!

How To Keep Bananas From Ripening Too Fast

You can prevent bananas from ripening too fast with the help of these hacks. Although overripe bananas are perfectly edible, keeping them fresh for longer is ideal.

  1. Wrap the stems in plastic wrap.
  2. Hang them on the counter on a banana hanger.
  3. Once they ripe the way you like them, put them in the fridge.
  4. If the bananas are peeled, dipped them in lemon juice.
  5. For longer periods of time, freeze the bananas.
