A few years after my daughter was born, my husband started a tradition. Every year for Valentine’s Day he would buy us matching necklaces. Over the years my daughter and I have received some beautiful pieces. Norah and I can’t wait to open those little boxes on February 14th. It’s become a really fun tradition in our family.
In return for his loving generosity, we make him breakfast in bed. It usually includes something Norah and I can make together. French toast and pancakes are regular features, but we’ve made a few smoothies and even an omelet one year! This year we are surprising him with heart-shaped Coconut Peanut Butter Wild Blueberry Toast.
My husband is quite the Wild Blueberry connoisseur. Over the last year he has been lead taste-tester for all of my Wild Blueberry recipes. Because of this, he has become a huge Wild Blueberry fan. He eats at least a handful of them every day, whether in his protein shake before the gym, stirred into a bowl of warm oatmeal, or as a flavorful add-in to his famous protein pancakes. Frozen Wild Blueberries are perfect for adding intense, sweetly unique blueberry flavor to many a favorite dish. He loves the boost of robust Wild Blueberry flavor and I love that he gets a potent burst of nutrition!
My Coconut Peanut Butter Wild Blueberry Toast is a play on your old-school PBJ! Creamy peanut butter is mixed with frozen Wild Blueberries, shredded coconut, vanilla, and a touch of honey. I slathered this delicious nut-butter and Wild Blueberry mixture onto 4 pieces of toasted heart-shaped bread. You can use any type of bread your sweetie likes. I could not resist using a homemade loaf I found called “seduction.” Perfect for Valentine’s day, right?
The intense purple color of the nut butter mixture is just gorgeous and brightens up the plate. It’s the perfect combination of beauty and flavor! My heart-shaped toast will be a fun departure from the norm this year. Although he wasn’t able to be my taste tester for this recipe, I’m sure he will love it just the same…and so will we!
