Almond Butter + Banana Toast with Hemp Sprinkles for Baby & Toddler
A fun, and super trendy, way for toddler to have a wholesome and flavorful meal in the morning – almond butter toast with banana slices and hemp seed sprinkles!
Whole wheat bread is smeared with protein rich almond butter and then layered with sliced bananas before sprinkling with hemp seeds.
One of my daughters loves to help make this recipe by layering the bananas and sprinkling the hemp seeds all-by-herself.
And of course, my other daughter loves to devour this stacked toast from the top down – hemp seeds first, then the bananas one-by-one followed by licking off the almond butter and then eating the toast crust first. So there you have it 🤪
