It's been such a busy past few weeks! I have hardly had time to post or even eat substantial amounts until dinner time every day. In times like this - where I know lunch will be a later meal - I make sure to have a breakfast that will keep me full and hold me over for the entire afternoon.
This breakfast does just that! Carbs, fat and protein all in one - without sacrificing flavor or taking too long to make!
I love the combination of fruit and any type of nut butter on toast. You may recall my post a while back for Blueberry and Almond Butter Toast. You could say this is a spin off of that! Peanut butter and banana is a classic combination (Elvis, anyone?). I could have added honey, but the banana already added sweet to the semi-salty peanut butter. So I went with bee pollen instead - adding an unexpected but very delicious earthy flavor!
I bought bee pollen at my local farmers market, but I have seen it start to pop up in many grocery stores. If you can't find it anywhere you could replace it with honey for more sweetness or hemp seeds/flax seeds if you still want that earthy crunch.
