4 Protein Powered Toasts You Need to Try

Updated: Apr 12, 2021

A friend of mine gave me a sourdough starter a couple of months ago, and I have been making sourdough on the reg ever since! It always turns out so delicious, and the process of preparing and baking the loaf is so therapeutic for me. So, with all this sourdough bread, I've been trying out different nourishing toast combinations for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, and I wanted to share 4 of my favorite Protein Powered Toasts You Need to Try with you!

Of all these toast combinations, my favorite combination is the first one with blueberries, tahini, honey, and cinnamon. It's sweet, juicy, and takes no more than 5 minutes to make! I love having it with a cup of hot coffee for a balanced breakfast.

When you make one of these 4 Protein Powered Toast combinations be sure to take a picture and tag me on social media. And let me know which one is your favorite!

Sourdough toast with protein rich Greek yogurt, tahini, antioxidant rich wild blueberries, honey, and cinnamon make a great balanced breakfast

Blueberry Yogurt Tahini Toast (vegetarian)

This sweet toast combo has been on my regular breakfast and snack rotation for several months. It's super simple, filling, rich in nutrition, and delicious.

  • Plain Greek yogurt

  • Tahini

  • Frozen wild blueberries

  • Honey

  • Cinnamon

The protein sources in the toast combo are Greek yogurt and tahini. The yogurt also provides beneficial probiotics and calcium, while tahini provides heart healthy fats and vitamin E. Additionally, frozen wild blueberries provide a healthy dose of vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, and anthocyanin, an antioxidant.

If you prefer SWEET over savory for breakfast, you'll love these: Cran-Apple Ginger Crumble, Pear and Apple Oat Bake, Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins, Pear Apple Crumble

This healthy hummus toast with tomatoes and fresh basil is a filling and delicious vegan lunch recipe

Tomato Basil Hummus Toast (vegan)

Hummus is something we always have stashed away in the fridge. It makes great snack with veggie dippers or a nice creamy addition to wraps, but I love it on toast! Add some fresh tomatoes and herbs and *chefs kiss*!

  • Hummus

  • Sliced tomatoes

  • Fresh basil

  • Salt and pepper

The plant-based protein source in this combo is hummus! Hummus is made from chickpeas, and in addition to protein provides fiber, iron, folate, and resistant starch. Additionally, tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and lycopene, an antioxidant.

Hummus is great on toast and in PASTA dishes! If pasta is your thing, you need to check out my Lightened-Up Pasta Alfredo. SO GOOD.

Elevate your peanut butter banana toast with crunchy granola and cinnamon

Peanut Butter Banana Crunch Toast (vegetarian)

I didn't grow up on PB and J's, I grew up on PB banana sandwiches. This combo is a tribute to my childhood and all my fellow PB and sweet breakfast lovers out there.

The plant-based protein source in this combo is peanut butter! Like tahini, peanut butter contains vitamin E, heart healthy fats, and fiber in addition to protein. Both oats (in the granola) and ananas contain fiber and energizing carbohydrates. Bananas also contain potassium, a mineral and electrolyte. This toast combo is a great post-workout snack to refuel your muscles and glycogen stores!

Leftover salmon is the perfect savory toast topping paired with heart healthy avocado herb dip

EBTB Herby Avocado Salmon Toast

I gotta be honest... I don't understand the whole smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel combo. I just can't do it. But I CAN do herby avocado with leftover cooked salmon! Add some EBTB seasoning on top and your belly will be living the dream.

The protein sources in this toast include salmon and yogurt. As mentioned above, yogurt is rich in nutrition. Both salmon and avocados contain heart healthy fats, and salmon is rich in vitamin D, vitamin B12, and iron. Avocados are also rich in dietary fiber.
