Fruit and peanut butter is a classic pairing for toast – peanut butter banana toast anyone?

  • banana slices
  • fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
  • sliced apples or pears
  • diced dried fruit (apricots or dates are delicious!)

Peanut butter pairs so well with sweet flavors, here are a few to try.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best peanut butter for toast?

The best peanut butter for toast? Your favorite! I love crunchy peanut butter for extra texture, but you may not like that so use smooth. You can also use natural peanut butter or “regular” peanut butters that have some oil and sugar added in. Again, it depends on your preference.

You can also use any nut butter. Try out almond butter, cashew butter, or even sun butter for a nut-free option.

What is the best bread for peanut butter toast?

Again, go with your favorite! A high quality artisan or sourdough bread will always be my favorite for toast, but I don’t always have it on hand. I do usually have a whole grain bread (sprouted, typically!) and so it really depends on what you have and what you prefer.

Is peanut butter toast healthy?

Yes, toast and peanut butter is a nutritious combination that provides protein, fiber, and filling fats. Then add other toppings for some sweet or savory combinations. The peanut butter toast calories estimate can be found below, but will vary based on bread, peanut butter, and toppings.

How to Serve Peanut Butter Toast to the Whole Family

I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉

This is a great meal for kids (especially if they can’t take peanut butter sandwiches to school). I would recommend putting out a few toppings (sprinkles would go over well at my house) and let them top their own.
