Grilled Nut Butter & Berry Sandwiches with Chia

Homemade Toddler Meal

  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • 2 sandwiches

What you'll need

  • ½ cup diced strawberries

  • ½ cup blueberries

  • ½ cup halved raspberries

  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds

  • 4 slices whole grain bread

  • ¼ cup nut butter of choice

  • 1 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt

How to make it:

  1. In a bowl, combine the strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and chia seeds. Using the back of a wooden spoon or a potato masher, mash the berries until they are juicy and well combined.
  2. Lay out the bread slices on a clean, flat surface. Divide the berry mixture between 2 of the slices and spread to cover the entire surface. Spread half of the nut butter onto each of the remaining 2 bread slices. Invert the slices onto the berry covered slices to form 2 sandwiches.
  3. Lightly spray a large frying pan with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Toast the sandwiches, turning once until golden brown on both sides, about 6 minutes total. Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board and let cool slightly.
  4. Cut each sandwich into quarters and serve with Greek yogurt for dipping

Notes: Frozen berries work just as well as fresh berries in this recipe.
