I have been in Australia since Sunday Morning and it has been wonderful. I love traveling to far places, especially when it means I can escape from the cold weather! One of the biggest challenges however is eating up all of your food before leaving. Two weeks is a long time to be away from home and I'd rather not return to sad, rotten food. Earlier in the week I did a full inventory of what we had in our fridge and planned ways to use it all up. The only oddball item was a pint of blueberries.
Last Monday morning when I was thinking about breakfast I wasn't entirely sure what to make. We had no eggs and no smoothie ingredients, but we did have bread. So I did a quick scan over my inventory list again and remembered that in addition to the blueberries I had a small jar of almond butter. The idea for these toasts just made perfect sense - I don't know why I hadn't thought this up before!
I ended up having this delicious morning treat every day for breakfast until we left. Needless to say, I used up those blueberries.
As for the almond butter, you may use any kind that strikes your fancy. I just happened to have a vanilla bean and espresso flavored one that paired awesomely with the blueberries, but a simple, plain almond butter would work just as well. I encourage you to play with all sorts of nut butters using this recipe!
