Strawberry Toast

Waaaay back in 2009, I posted a short and sweet post about my favorite snack: avocado toast (update 4/18: it’s since been given a makeover!). It’s a simple treat – just cream cheese and sliced avocado on toasted bread – and one that I go to again and again for breakfast or a quick snack. You may have heard about this avocado toast thing – there are a whole lot of folks out there that love their avocado toast so much it has almost a cult-like following. I get it. I love it, too.


After almost six (!) years of avocado toast exclusivity, I’ve branched out and tried something new…

Toast + Creamy Peanut Butter + Fresh Strawberries = New Favorite Snack.

Ingredients you'll need for strawberry toast: fresh strawberries and peanut butter

I still love my avocado toast, but sometimes it’s good to try new things, right? This whole strawberry, peanut buttery toasty goodness came about one morning while I was in a hurry to make a quick breakfast and I thought peanut butter and jelly go together, so why not PB&J with fresh strawberries? On toast?

It really is good (what’s not to love about creamy rich peanut butter and sweet juicy strawberries?), but the best part is that one slice of strawberry toast keeps my tummy full for quite a while, which is much needed during the work week – it definitely keeps the low blood sugar hangriness away.

I like to smear my toast with a generous helping of the creamy good stuff and dice up a couple three strawberries to top it all off.

Love ya, avocado toast, but you got a little competition now.

    1. Give it a try and let me know what you think — I’ve been making it a lot for breakfast and am in love with it 🙂

  1. I’ve definitely never thought about combining peanut butter and strawberries, but it sounds like it could be perfect! I’ll have to try it out the next time we have strawberries in the house- thanks for the idea April!

  2. Seriously??? This looks so dang good. I have always put bananas on my toast with peanut butter. Why, oh WHY(????) have I not tried strawberries? This is getting corrected. Pronto. As in, right now. **Insert skipping my way into the kitchen now** 🙂 Thanks for this slice of geniusness!

  3. Hi April, This is a perfect breakfast or even a light dinner recipe. It looks so good and strawberries are everywhere this time of year. The thing that is most impressive it is so quick and easy to make. While the bread is in the toaster, slice the strawberries. If you are quick enough with room temp. peanut butter on the toast, you will get a slightly melted peanut butter that the strawberries will adhere with ease. We are talking about a meal in minutes, perfect!

    This recipe lends itself to a number of variations in the peanut butter spread, like cashew butter, almond butter or if you are a hazelnut and chocolate fan, Nutella. Making your own nut butters in a blender, like a VitaMix, makes it that much better. (Nut butters make a real mess of your blender and it is difficult at best to clean under the blades, I just add extra strawberries, banana, and ice and make a smoothie, yum!) Diced banana might be a delicious addition to the original recipe. Time to go the Laboratory and experiment, all mistakes will be eaten anyway 🙂

  4. Oh my goodness, I absolutely love this recipe. First of all, it’s simple which is exactly what I need and want in the mornings. Second, it’s healthy and third, it’s absolutely delicious!!

  5. This is genius!! Made it for a quick breakfast for my boys and they devoured it and asked if we could have it tomorrow too!! Thanks for sharing such a winner recipe!!!!
