Orange Toast

by Meghann on April 20, 2011

Here’s something new for you:


Two slices of toast with almond butter, apple butter, granola, chia seeds, and ORANGE SLICES.


Yes, orange slices. On toast.

I had an orange that had been in my produce drawer for a week too long. I wanted toast with almond butter this morning and decided ‘why not?’


It was a really refreshing addition to the toast. Each bite left the orange slice bursting with juice, creating an orange marmalade effect when blended with the apple butter. Loved it. 🙂

The toast was especially refreshing following my 5 mile run this morning. i kept a great pace of 9:00 min/miles and came home to a nice deep leg stretch. A few pigeons and double pigeons and my legs were good as new. : )

What’s your favorite toast topping? Butter? Peanut Butter? Jam? Do share!

I guess that’s like marmalade, so it’s not the strangest thing I can think of for toast. You can do better 🙂

Interesting combo!!! I think PB and banana is probably my all time favourite – even more so if the PB is Cinnamon Raisin Swirl by PB&Co!

I hate hate haaate marmelade (it makes me gag) but that combination could well be do-able..:)

Classic PB&J.

Actually my favourite is cheese, but that makes me break out in acne so that’s not happening anymore.

I wish I lived in Florida, the land of the world’s best oranges. Seriously. Last time I was in Florida (about 20 years ago!) I almost ate an entire 5lb bag myself!

I’m actually not a big fan of oranges (bad night with vodka and OJ…can never look at oranges the same way :() but this actually looks refreshing! I love putting fresh strawberries on toast with a light dusting of powdered sugar. 🙂

Savoury – I love peanut butter and marmite (together) on toast. Sweet – you can’t beat soya marg on warm toast (or butter if you eat it), sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon. Yum!

sounds delish! my fave toast topping is PB and bananas, cream cheese and fruit spread(usually grape or raspberry) or believe it or not mashed avocado and tomato.

I like my toast with butter and jam. YUM! I don’t like PB on toast, but I do like it on plain non toasted bread.

13 Holly @ The Runny Egg April 20, 2011 at 9:51 am

This morning I had toast loaded with mashed banana, peanut butter and grape jelly. It hit the spot!

Peanut Butter and lettuce…give it a try. So delicious.

19 Jamie aka "Sometimes Healthy" Girl April 20, 2011 at 10:20 am

Hmm. Well since I’m the queen of weird food combos, I feel like I need to think of the strangest thing I’ve ever put on toast…not that strange BUT sometimes when I really want French Toast but don’t feel like making it, I’ll drizzle it with butter and syrup to fake it 🙂

I recently tried orange fig preserves with and thin spread of honey lavender goat cheese on sunflower toast. They were all farmers market finds. It was great!
For some reason I just can’t eat oranges by themselves and I have one that been hanging out in my crisper too. Can’t wait to try it on toast!

22 Steph @321delish April 20, 2011 at 10:53 am

Mashed Banana, Peanut butter and honey!! mmm I want some now!

23 Ellie @ The Mommyist April 20, 2011 at 10:56 am

I could eat good toast with good butter all day. It’s probably a really good thing that we don’t keep either in the house.

oranges rock my socks off. First time I’ve seen it on toast, let’s see how quickly it catches on!

25 Morgan @ Life After Bagels April 20, 2011 at 11:05 am

Well it better be jam … for Christmas both my dad and my father in law gave me a huge jar of jam … when they got into making jam is beyond me (separately, they’ve actually never met) but I’ll be eating it for the rest of the year 🙂

26 Tracey April 20, 2011 at 11:07 am

My favorite toast topping is very simple. A squirt of agave nectar with a sprinkle of cinnamon! So good and easy!

Looove mashed banana and raw honey on toast. 😀

31 Amanda April 20, 2011 at 11:43 am

One of my favorite breakfasts growing up was cheese toast with mandarin oranges on top! The cheese/orange combo is delicious. My friends always called it “pregnant lady food” because they thought it was so strange.

32 Kiran @ April 20, 2011 at 11:47 am

Peanut, almond butters, marmalade, nutella, granolas, coconut, fruit slices. So many options 😀

I try not to eat it too often but sometimes if I’m feeling crazy I put a bit of nutella on top my toast and peanut butter. So. Good.

Oranges sounds delish! Will try when I’m feeling the need to switch it up. Thanks!
My favorite is the Ol’ Standby: Almond Butter & Sliced Bananas.
Also a fan of cream cheese & jelly!

35 Chelsea April 20, 2011 at 12:12 pm

I think orange toast would be like orange marmalade. My favorite toast topping will always be just butter, nice melted butter.

Peanut butter, jelly, and cinnamon = my favorite combo on toast. I eat it waaaayyyy too much.

37 Cara April 20, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Wow orange on toast, that sounds great! I do love a good orange marmalade, but peanut butter takes the place as favorite toast topping!

38 Jess@atasteofconfidence April 20, 2011 at 12:41 pm

PB and cinnamon is definitely my favorite.

Very interesting toast combo.

Do the chia seeds add flavor? Or do they just add crunch?

Okay Meghann, this is the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen you blog about, lol. I love oranges but I don’t know about this one, ha. Good for you for trying new things and tastes, you are definitely more daring than I am!
My favorite toast topping is good ol’ fashioned butter (Earth Balance)
