I tried to come up with a more complex name for this. Really, I did. But then my dad declared me a “football savant” for dominating last week’s NFL weekly picks and I lost interest in anything other than basking in the glory.

So here’s the deal with this “recipe” – I realize strawberry season has come and gone, but the grocery store is still selling them which means I am still buying them. And will continue to do so until I get tired of this combination which, based on my track record here, should be approximately never.

Nailed It/Failed It: Peanut Butter Strawberry Chocolate Chip Toast

Verdict

Can I declare a verdict on my own creation (that I realize is nowhere near original)? Because I am. Nailed. It. It’s entirely possible I eat this multiple times a week (read “daily”). My husband thinks it’s weird “because of the toast”, but that’s what makes it awesome. How else is the peanut butter going to get a little on the melty side?

Process

Toast the bread of your choice (I typically use sandwich thins, but my mom gave us a loaf of wheat bread because we looked poor and hungry and I’m a fan of that as well). While your bread is toasting, cut your strawberries to whatever size you’d like. Once your toast pops, smear as much or as little peanut butter as you’d like. Then top with strawberries and a few chocolate chips and prepare to be addicted.

(I’ll also make this without the chocolate chips for breakfast. Seriously. I have a problem. Send help.)

I have long had a love affair with banana bread (no nuts thankyouverymuch). My mom’s recipe. Which came from my grandma. Which came from who knows where. Other recipes I have never had any use for. Until now. Because while that recipe will always be my favorite, the calorie count on it will not. And these little beauties are only 79 calories a piece*. Which is good. Because eating just one is about impossible. Believe me. I tried.

*The chocolate chips put these closer to 100 a piece.

Verdict

Nailed. It. I’ve made these twice in a week. Seriously.

Alterations

I added about 1/4 cup chocolate chips. 100% worth the extra calories.
