Sautéed pears, creamy ricotta cheese and a sweet almond butter drizzle top a slice of toast for a nutritious morning treat!

I have a major thing with toast and I’ve talked about this obsession before. Back when I worked for a bakery, two slices of sprouted bread with peanut butter was my staple breakfast. Then I had Demi and breakfast was steel-cut oats every day (FOR MILK PRODUCTION!!!). Now with my lower carb requirements, I’m back to a slice of sprouted bread or 1/2 a sprouted english muffin for my daily breakfast.

Because I always have a list of recipes to try, this ricotta and pear combo was one that I’ve been wanting to work on for a while.

And it’s a good one. Creamy ricotta cheese + sweet fruit? It’s practically like dessert!

It’s finished with a maple almond butter drizzle which is really just a genius way (idea from Cooking Light!) of thinning and sweetening some almond butter. Mix together water, maple syrup, and almond butter and drizzle over everything or use as a dip for fruit.

It’s great because the maple syrup goes a long way, you don’t need much at all! If you’re looking to cut some sugar, it’s a perfect alternative to maple syrup on pancakes or french toast.
