Here’s a healthy breakfast idea. It’s whole grain, high protein, refined sugar free, and very importantly, super quick & easy to throw together, making it a perfect nutritious week-day breakfast. This took me like 2 minutes to throw together, and I have proof with a video! Keep scrolling to find it; it is a really awesome clip I made, so you should definitely watch it; you might learn a thing or two! If not, it’s also really relaxing and cheerful, haha.
Monday morning: lying in bed and not wanting to get out, I thought of the homemade (refined sugar free) red bean paste sitting in the fridge from this past weekend. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about peanut butter & red bean toast. So I got up, headed to the kitchen, and made it. 🍓🍞
What can I say, food is my motivation, haha.
Toasted multigrain, peanut butter, Greek yogurt, homemade sugar-free red bean paste, strawberries.
Monday morning got me like: But first, coffee. ☕️ I had an almond-coconut milk latte with my morning toast and proceeded to make a second cup after this, haha.
It was one of those Mondays… 🙈
This peanut butter red bean toast was so damn good that, in addition to a second cup of almond milk latte, I had seconds of the same toast and even edited a video of it right after. It was so delicious that I knew I just had to share this with y’all! 🙂
So here’s the video, aaaand… you’re welcome! Hahaha. But seriously, I really like what I stitched together. I really hope you do to! Click to watch this awesome video. It’s relaxing, vaguely has a sort of “asmr-vibe” to it, but is also energizing is cheerful. Many of y’all also asked how I make my almond milk lattes, and in the video, I show y’all how. ☕️
As I mentioned, I used our homemade red bean paste, which we make by simply cooking a mix of red adzuki beans and regular red beans in a slow cooker with some Chinese red dates, and then we mash everything together with some honey or maple syrup. That’s it! Our homemade version is SO much healthier than store-bought, and it is SO much more delicious because it has more texture and is not laden with sugar. Every year fall comes around, I get cravings for red bean paste because it’s so satisfying, cozy, and delicious.
- Organic multi-grain bread
- All-natural / organic peanut butter
