Sometimes, life seems like too much.
Sometimes, you’ve been trying to get your household to become vegetarians and you fail and you fail and you fail.
Sometimes, you want to quit all your volunteer organizations and maybe move so that you have a reason to quit that doesn’t make you seem like a quitter.
And so you make this.
I CAN'T DEAL WITH LIFE. WE ARE HAVING PEANUT BUTTER TOAST RECIPE
This recipe is adapted from the much saner version at https://www.wellplated.com/peanut-butter-banana-toast-granola-honey/
- 4 slices thickish bread (make it hearty, who knows when you will eat again)
- 4 tbsp peanut butter
- 3 tbsp honey (It costs so much money. Try not to think about that. Just be psyched it isn't sugar and feel virtuous)
- 2 big bananas
- 1 oz granola (if you have it. )
Look. Sometimes life is really hard to deal with.
And sometimes a writer just can’t deal.
So get out a knife that is barely sharp enough to cut a banana and slice the bananas.
There! Good job!
At the same time, toast your bread.
To do this you need a toaster.
If you do not have a toaster or it is so full of crumbs that it’s a fire hazard, you can toast the bread in a skillet over medium low-heat on an oven.
Admire toast. Toast is beautiful.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, WRITER PERSON. You might be having a cruddy day, but you are still amazing. Really.
Put the peanut butter on the toast and spread it out.
Put those banana slices on top of the peanut butter.
Also, put the knife safely away, turn off stove if you used it. Unplug the toaster if you used it. We want safe, healthy writers here.
Drizzle that honey on top.
Sprinkle granola if you are totally wealthy.
Eat! Eat! Writers, need nutrition and calories!
This makes me happy. What else are we eating?
PEANUT BUTTER IS THE BEST BUTTER!
I feel like I’m seven. I like that.

My breakfast/pre-gym shake is similar to your PB toast recipe. 🙂
[blend the following]
4 tbsp peanut butter
3 tbsp honey
2 big bananas (I also add a few blueberries/strawberries)
1 oz granola (I like honey oat w/ dark chocolate)
1 scoop old-fashioned oats
16 oz almond milk
1-2 scoops protein powder
Brian! That sounds amazing!
It really is… I think those base ingredients are so versatile. Sometimes, instead of a shake, I make oatmeal with most of those ingredients, especially when I lived in a colder climate. 🙂 I may be crazy, but also like PB and Acovado on toast lol
