No added sugar doesn’t have to mean you can’t have traditional, tasty, breakfasts. Toast, for example, is a breakfast staple for many people. The problem isn’t the toast itself but what we spread on the toast. Jam, honey, chocolate/hazelnut spread – they’re all full of added sugar.
However, you can still enjoy toast for breakfast and also make it a healthy start to your day by using natural ingredients that are free from added sugar and good for you.
This is a great-tasting breakfast that the whole family will love and that takes no more than a couple of minutes to put together. Packed with protein and healthy fats, it really is a good start to the day. Feel free to use almond butter in place of peanut butter or just use half a banana if you want to reduce the carb and natural sugar content a little.
1 slice wholemeal bread
1 teaspoon no-added sugar peanut butter
1 medium banana – sliced thinly
Ground cinnamon (optional)
Lightly toast the bread to your preferred degree of brownness. Toast both sides or just one. Spread the toast with the peanut butter and then top with the sliced banana. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon if you fancy it.
