Ezekiel with chocolate PB2 and figs 1

There are mornings that just call for peanut butter on toast.  Toasted ezekiel is a great healthy alternative to toast, that will keep you full for longer and provide you with the dietary fibre your digestive system needs.

You all know that I love my zoats (zucchini oats), but I am definitely a little addicted to this toasted ezekiel recipe with low fat chocolate spread and figs right now!  Try it and you will see why!  The ezekiel is dense and filling, yet not so filling that you feel icky after eating it.  It does have a slightly sweet taste so I would highly recommend sweet toppings over savoury.  However, avocado and sliced tomato does work too.

If you would prefer your breakfast to be lower in sugar then you can definitely skip the rice malt syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon instead.
 
Have you tried toasted Ezekiel?  What about PB2?  Thoughts?

    1. I hadn’t tried Ezekiel bread until recently but I am definitely addicted to it! It’s super yum and filling. And PB2 is a must try if you like peanut butter. It’s lower in fat because it’s a dehydrated form.

    1. It really is worth the try. It’s a little tricky to cut so if you can find pre-sliced then that would be your best bet. It’s slightly sweet in taste so sweet toppings make for a delicious breakfast!
