Makes 1 Servings

  • almond, other nut butter, or sunflower seed butter (2-3 tsp.)
  • sprouted grain bread (2 slices)
  • sliced ripe banana or apple (1/2 cup)
  • cinnamon (1/4 tsp.)
  • unsweetened applesauce (1/3 cup)


  1. Place a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spread about half of the nut butter on one slice of bread, then top with the banana or apple and cinnamon. Spread the remaining nut butter on the other slice of bread.

  2. Close up the sandwich and place it in the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a cooling rack (so the underside doesn't soften) to cool slightly, then transfer to a plate and cut in half. Serve with applesauce.
