FAQs & tips

Can I store peanut butter toast?

I don’t recommend it! The bread can get soggy easily from the peanut butter and toppings. Eat this peanut butter toast as soon as possible after it’s been prepared. 

Prepare your toppings while the bread is toasting

To save time, cut your fruit and get your toppings ready as your bread is toasting. 

Mix and match your toppings!

You can switch up toppings for each slice of bread — no need to keep it the same for every slice. Add bananas on one and peaches on the other… have fun with it!
