I’m not a cutesy food person. I love to pin cute, creative food, but I rarely have the patience or skill to attempt it. I’m more of a “throw it all in a pot and let it go” kind of cook. However, Easter is one of my favorite candy holidays and I’m looking for ways to enjoy festive, fun food without eating Cadbury Eggs for breakfast. (Don’t judge. It happens.). So, I got out my Easter cookie cutter and came up with these fun Easter Egg toasts. They’re super easy and fun and they made it past my kid testers. They’re also loaded with whole grain and fruit, so you can eat this egg shaped food all you want. If you make these, snap a pic and tag me on Instagram (@meadoeoutonalimb). I love seeing your creations!
Healthy Easter Egg Toast
Note: This is really more of a method than a recipe. I would encourage you to get creative and see what happens. This would be a fun breakfast to make with your kids.
- Sprouted Whole Grain Bread
- Strawberry Cream cheese or peanut butter (or sunflower butter or cashew butter or almond butter – whatever)
- Toppings: Any combination of the following
- Bananas – sliced
- Strawberries – sliced
- Shredded coconut
- Sliced Kiwi
- mini chocolate chips
- Whatever else sounds good to you
- Toast the bread as you normally would.
- Cut it into an Easter Egg shape with a knife or use a cookie cutter.
- Spread with the cream cheese or nut butter.
- Add your toppings in a beautiful design.
- Enjoy right away.
Savory Option: Instead of cream cheese or nut butters, you could spread smashed avocado over the toast and top it with tomato and hard boiled egg slices.
Chocolate Bunny Pledge
I would also like to take a minute to encourage you to take the Chocolate Bunny Pledge. Every year, people buy adorable baby bunnies and chicks for their kids without thinking about the commitment that’s required to keep them happy and healthy after Easter is over. Then, these animals get abandoned and unwanted bunnies overrun local shelters. By signing the pledge, you can help spread awareness about this problem. Animals don’t make good gifts. Let’s fill our baskets with chocolate bunnies instead of real ones. The pledge is free, but when you sign it, you will get an email with information on how to donate to The Bunny Hutch, which is a non-profit rescue organization. If you decide to make a donation, 100% of the proceeds go to feed and care for abandoned animals. It’s a great cause. Please help spread the word.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter.
