Blueberry Toast Ingredients

This recipe combines the natural sweetness of blueberries with the creamy texture of Greek yogurt on top of toast.

It can also be topped with chia seeds for added crunch and texture!

Whole Grain Bread

Choose a whole-grain bread for this recipe.

It’s a good source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Whole grains may help lower cholesterol levels, improve blood sugar control, and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

In addition, whole grain bread is also more filling than refined grain bread, which can help with maintaining a healthy weight.

I enjoy Dave’s Killer Bread Good Seed® Thin-Sliced and Nature’s Own 100% Whole Wheat, two of my favorite healthy breads.

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is a good source of protein, calcium, vitamin B12, and probiotics. It is also relatively low in calories and fat.

Greek yogurt offers several health benefits including weight management.

Researchers found in a 2020 study of over 65,000 children and adults that yogurt consumption was associated with lower body mass index (BMI) and body weight.

A couple of my favorite Greek yogurts include Chobani Vanilla and Light + Fit Dannon Vanilla. I prefer vanilla yogurt, however, you can do plain or fruit-flavored.

Blueberries

Often hailed as a superfood, blueberries offer numerous health benefits.

Blueberries have been shown to improve memory and executive function, which tend to deteriorate with age. 

An additional study has demonstrated blueberries’ benefits in children.  And, the improvements weren’t seen after 12 weeks of eating berries, but within hours of just a single meal with blueberries.

I use frozen blueberries for this recipe. You can use fresh berries.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds pack fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids.

They provide a crunch, along with sustained energy, making them a nutritious addition to a balanced breakfast.

Blueberry Toast Variations

Below are some additional ways to enjoy blueberry toast:

  • Lemon Zest: Add 1 teaspoon of lemon zest to the yogurt before spreading it on the toast.
  • Ricotta Cheese: Instead of yogurt, spread ricotta cheese on the toast
  • Vegan Yogurt Toast: Substitute the Greek yogurt with coconut or soy yogurt as a dairy-free alternative.
  • Fruit: Vary fresh fruits like strawberries, raspberries, or sliced bananas.
  • Bread: Experiment with different types of bread such as whole-grain, sourdough, or gluten-free options.
  • Nuts and Seeds: Top your toast with sliced almonds, pistachios, pecans, sunflower seeds, or flax seeds.
