Being sick means less grocery shopping. Less grocery shopping means less food in the refrigerator. Less food mean resourcefulness.
Saturday afternoon I resorted to putting my refrigerator on top of a piece of toast and whoa did it turn out tasty!
I sort of thought tahini was only used for hummus and this, but I was wrong because apparently it’s also used on maple apple toast.
How great is this snack? Snacks in general are pretty great, but this one is nostalgic with a hint of gourmet.
It’s basically my spin on peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches only I didn’t use any of those ingredients.
Instead, this requires maple syrup, your favorite nut butter (I used Meenut Butter – a tasty mix of almonds, walnuts, pecans, & macadamia nuts w/coconut oil), and sweet apples – and it’s open faced.
I just love how creamy the nut butter gets when it hits the warm toasty bread. That with the contrast of crispy apples is perfection for snacks in my book.
Speaking of nut butter, Trader Joe’s has a Peanut Butter and Jelly Chocolate Bar now. Is that real life? Chrissy bought me one for my birthday, and we proceeded to eat almost the entire thing right then and there.
Alright, now go make yourself a snack!
Maple Apple Toast
1 slice whole grain bread, toasted
4 slices Fuji apple
2 tablespoons nut butter (Meenut Butter, almond, peanut, macadamia, etc.)
1 tablespoon Grade B maple syrup
1 tablespoon tahini
Spread nut butter onto toast. Place apple slices onto toast. Drizzle maple syrup and tahini over apples. Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon.
