almond butter toast with cinnamon and honey

Perhaps it’s my inclination for simplicity in the morning, but I find this toast recipe to be one of my favorites and a very satisfying choice for breakfast. It’s quick and easy, but importantly – it’s nutritious and energizes me for the day ahead. At its very core, this recipe is almond butter on top of a slice of toasted whole-grain bread, but it really is so much more. The toast is then taken to the next level with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon, a dash of sea salt, a dusting of ground flax seed, a drizzle of honey, and finished with sesame seeds. Earthy, satisfying, and energizing – a wonderful breakfast combination.

This toast is wonderful for hurried mornings, perfect for when five minutes is all you can possibly spare. I like to pair it with some Fresh Green Juice or an Imperial Purple Smoothie. Wonderful for both kids and adults, this toast is a breakfast staple of mine that I hope you’ll enjoy, as well.

  1. There are not many things I love more than toast. Of all the quick and easy foods this is always my go-to snack when all else fails. Your version Lisa is just wonderful and healthy and comforting.

  2. These photos are stunning Lisa! I’m totally drooling for a piece of that toast :) I have everything in my pantry and can’t wait to make it for my breakfast now :)

  3. What a great idea! I often have toast with almond butter or coconut oil. Never thought of adding flax. I would bet cinnamon with coconut oil would work well, too.

  4. I love this Lisa. For the last week or so, I’ve been wanting to start bringing more healthy foods to work, rather than running out at lunch to grab something that I know I’ll be sorry for afterward. I’ve been eating yogurts in the morning with blueberries or a banana, but that gets boring after a while.. I love the idea of this, and think that it would be so great to change things up a bit! I’ve never tasted almond butter, but am definitely going to try this week! I’ll report back :-) <3

    • Enjoy, Prudy! I love it because it is so earthy and satisfying. It will keep you energized and full for hours! So many great ingredients, though. I would love to hear what you think after the fact. Thanks for stopping by – always a pleasure! :)
