Banana, peanut butter and granola on a toasted baguette

Banana, peanut butter and granola on a toasted baguette

In a previous post I displayed my gratitude for the humble baguette, topped with roasted eggplant and chickpeas. Now with Toronto in its second lockdown, my craving for crusty carbs and sticky sweets is satisfied with a generous helping of muesli and maple syrup.

Pre-pandemic, my pantry was always stocked with granola, cinnamon, seeds and peanut butter — which makes this toast so easy to assemble. Need a bit of extra indulgence? Spread a layer (or two) of coconut oil on the baguette, then toast in the oven.
