I’m just going to admit this upfront: my all-time, hands-down favorite breakfast is…Special K with Silk Vanilla Soy Milk. But now that I live over in Europe, I can’t get that magical combination of cereal + milk, and it forces me to explore different (probably more healthy) breakfast options.

And when it comes to breakfast that has the potential for maximum healthy / fun / easy factor, toast is where it’s at!

So here are a few fun ideas for healthy toast toppings. They each pack a healthy punch of protein to kick your morning off right, AND they’re all ridiculously easy to make. Double win.

Healthy toast with greek yogurt and strawberries

Strawberry Greek Yogurt Toast

I know it might sound weird, but Greek yogurt is perfect on toast! Creamy, spreadable, and higher in protein than regular yogurt. You’ll need:

  • 1 piece of toasted bread
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons of Greek yogurt
  • 4 or 5 strawberries (or other berries)
  • Optional: Drizzle of honey
Healthy toast with almond butter and banana

Almond Butter Banana Toast

For when you’re craving something sweet, this combination satisfies (and the only sugar comes from the banana). You’ll need:

  • 1 piece of toasted bread
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (can also use peanut butter)
  • ½ of a banana
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
Healthy toast with cottage cheese and blueberries

Cottage Cheese Blueberry Toast

It’s time we level up the under appreciated cottage cheese. It’s creamy, filling, and can be sweet or savory (today we’re going the sweet route with berries). To make this cottage cheese toast you’ll need:

  • 1 piece of toasted bread
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons cottage cheese
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Optional: Drizzle of honey
Healthy toast topping with hummus and cucumber

Cucumber Hummus Toast

You’ll be in Mediterranean bliss after whipping up this creamy, crunchy, snack-worthy hummus toast. You’ll need:

  • 1 piece of toasted bread
  • 2 tablespoons hummus
  • A few slices of cucumber
  • Coarse sea salt
Healthy toast topping with mashed avocado and egg

Avocado Egg Toast

It wouldn’t be a toast post without the holy grail of toasts…avocado! We’re keeping it super simple with just a handful of ingredients:

  • 1 piece of toasted bread
  • 1 teaspoon of oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ of an avocado
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Let’s talk about the bread

In the journey to really good toast, you should probably put some thought into the bread. You want something that’s healthy (like wholegrain) and hearty enough to hold the mountain of toppings you’re about to throw at it. Here are some of my favorite breads to use for toasting:

  • Whole grain bread with lots of seeds (it’s best straight from the bakery and cut into thick slabs)
  • Sourdough bread, which isn’t always whole grain but tastes amazing when toasted and piled with toppings
  • If you’re going pre-sliced, I love Dave’s Killer Bread!
