- Apples: I use granny smith because that’s my favorite- but you can use any apples you like to buy. I like how granny smith apples in particular taste with honey.
- Cinnamon: which gives this toast is classic warm spice-y flavor! I love to load it on!
- Raw Honey: We use our own honey, straight out of the beehives for us! As beekeepers, we have plenty of raw honey so I try to use it in all my recipes instead of sugar. I’d recommend trying a local farmers market to find the best raw honey in your area. Or else, this raw organic honey online here is the next best thing.
- Sliced Whole Wheat Bread: I used my super easy 5-Ingredient Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread for this toast, but you can use any bread you prefer. Make sure to use a gluten free version to make it GF.
- Peanut Butter: or you can substitute an almond or cashew butter instead. Like my peanuts, I only use unsalted peanut butter.
Where to Get Raw Honey
The best place to find raw honey is straight from your local beekeeper! Check out a farmer’s market or farm stand near you – or reach out to your county or state beekeeping association to connect with beekeeper’s nearby. Support local bees, local keepers, and enjoy the sweet benefits.
When honey is called “raw honey” it means that it has not been pasteurized. We take our honey straight from the hive, and don’t process or subject it to high heat. Pasteurizing can kill bad (and beneficial) macrobiotics in the honey. You can use normal store-bought honey for this recipe… it doesn’t have to be raw. That is just the way we like to keep our honey. Babies under the age of 1 should not be given honey, and pregnant women should avoid unpasteurized foods.
What’s a Vegan Alternative to Honey?
Yes, you can substitute out the honey in this recipe for agave nectar or maple syrup. I prefer agave nectar, it’s my go-to kitchen sweetener because it’s absolutely delicious, and buying organic agave is inexpensive (compared to other organic sweeteners). It also bakes well, so I like to add it to my baked goods.
How Do I Make Sauteed Apples on Toast:
- Cut the apple into thin slices, set aside.
- In a small sauté pan, melt the butter over low heat and add the apple slices, cinnamon, and honey. Sauté for 6 to 7 minutes until the apples soften and begin to brown.
- Toast 2 slices of bread, and spread 1 tablespoon nut butter on each slice of toast. Divide the apples and place them on top of the nut butter.
- Drizzle with extra honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy.
- To make this vegan, replace the honey with a plant-based sweetener like agave or maple syrup.
- To make this gluten free, ensure the bread, nut butter, and any spices you are using are certified gluten free.
- To make this nut free – use a nut-free butter like sunflower butter, tahini, or anything that fits in with your allergy requirements.
