- 4 slices whole grain crusty bread
- 2 tbsp butter or olive oil
- 4 tbsp roasted salted almond butter
- 4 squares dark chocolate (don’t exceed 70% cacao)
- 2-3 tbsp fruit – pomegranate, banana, mango, peach, the choice is yours!
Gently butter (or oil) the outsides of the all the 4 slices of bread.
Slather the inside of 2 slices with almond butter.
Top the almond buttered sides with 2 squares of dark chocolate each, and your fruit (chopped as required).
Top with the other slice of bread, buttered slice up and place in a heated pan or skillet.
Push down with a heavy spatula to compress. Gently flip when the bottom is browned and crusty – about 2-3 minutes. Cook on the other side for another 2-3 minutes & serve immediately!
*Foodstree Pro Tip: The choice of fruit is completely dependent on your mood and your taste! Bananas for a creamy texture, pomegranates for a sweet pop, peaches and mango for a tangy addition – the possibilities are endless.
