P&B Toasty Crumb

My staple breakfast is peanut butter and banana on toast, I would happily eat this for every meal.  This morning I had a bit more time and thought about how to improvise with the same magic three ingredients. I also felt like treating myself so this is a slightly more decadent way to eat peanut butter and banana on toast with added treat value that doesn’t take much longer than the simple original version.

P&B Toasty Crumb

  • 1 banana
  • 2 slices of bread (I used small slices of wholemeal bread, but could easily have eaten this with large slices)
  • Peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • A few hazelnuts (I used 10) – or other nuts.
  • Coconut yoghurt

Toast both slices of bread.  Whilst they are toasting, slice the banana and fry for a couple of minutes in the coconut oil.  Then add the sugar and toss it through the bananas and cook for another couple of minutes to caramelize nicely.

When the bread has toasted – put one slice in a blender with the hazelnuts to make the crumbs.   Spread the peanut butter on the other slice.  Pour the bananas onto the peanut butter toast and sprinkle the crumbs on top.  Add some yoghurt and enjoy! Simple.

Simply Hot B&B

This morning was a quick ‘what’s in the fridge to use up’ type breakfast – and today the blueberries were getting to that not so fresh stage.  Cooking them up with a banana is quick and easy and adding a few oats helps to bulk up what is essentially a warming low fat brekkie.

Simply Hot B&B (serves one)

Baked banana

  • 1 banana – cut into thick slices
  • handful of blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 20g oats
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Melt the coconut oil then mix with the honey.  Mix this with the banana, blueberries, oats and cinnamon.  Make sure it’s all well coated. Pop into a hot oven – 200c/400f/Gas 6 for 10 minutes.  You want the blueberries to start going a bit squishy.

Nice served with yoghurt.
