Recipe: Banana Maple Tahini toast

Hi FB Fam!

I've been away for a few weeks and returned to a mostly empty fridge. While scavenging for breakfast, I enjoyed this delicious banana maple tahini toast 😋 with a boiled egg on the side. If you've never had tahini before, it's a ground sesame seed paste made from white sesame seeds. In my experience, the quality of tahini varies widely, and purchasing a Middle Eastern or North African brand may lend you more authentic taste. Most people have enjoyed tahini as a key ingredient in hummus, but this recipe sweetens up this spread and serves it with banana.

If you're rushed for time, I hope you try out this quick, delicious suggestion as a meal or snack!


1 slice whole grain bread, toasted

1 tbsp tahini

1 tsp maple syrup, honey, or other liquid sweetener of your choice

1/2 medium sized banana, sliced

A sprinkle of cacao nibs or chocolate chips, or grated chocolate (optional)


Mix tahini and liquid sweetener. It won't look like it mixes easily at first, but keep going! You'll soon get a lovely, silky, spreadable consistency.

Spread sweetened tahini on toast; top with sliced banana and optional cacao nibs, chocolate chips, or grated chocolate 😋

Delicious served alongside eggs, yogurt, or even some cheese!

Bon appetit!
