This is a yummy one folks. Here is a recipe for a healthy snack packed full of protein. Plus it is delicious any time of day!
What you will need:
Organic nut butter (I go for either peanut butter or almond butter)
Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter (its like vegan nutella!)
Cinnamon ( optional)
What to do:
Toast 2 slices of Ezekiel bread (found in the frozen section of your supermarket)
Spread on desired amount of nut butter
Spread on chocolate hazelnut butter
Slice up some banana and place on top.
Sprinkle with cinnamon
This can be enjoyed as open faced slices or put the bread slices together forming a sandwhich and grill it like you would a grilled cheese sandwich. It is a sweet treat that is high in energy and protein!
Some recommendations for nut butters. With organic brands, there tends to be some separation with the oil and this can lead to a mess. A few brands that have organic nut butters without separation are Earth Balance, Justin’s, and Brad’s. Earth balance has agave in it so it is a bit sweeter than the others. You can find these brands at whole foods and most local health food stores.
This knocked my socks off the first time I tried it. Now I try to keep all ingredients on hand so I can make it whenever!
