Breakfast “Cheesecake” – Healthy Weird Looking Breakfast

An old standby for me is baking fruit and cottage cheese on bread.  The cottage cheese melts, and if you have a good imagination, you can pretend it is healthy cheesecake!   It tastes much better than it looks!  Takes 2 minutes to make, and 5-10 to bake.

2 slices whole wheat bread (I love Whole Foods house brand – very soft)

½ cup of low fat cottage cheese

1 ripe banana (also works great with ripe pear – peeled, cored and mashed up)

1 Splenda packet (or you could use a touch of honey or agave)

¼ tsp cinnamon

Palmful of chopped walnuts (1 tbsp)

Mash the fruit and mix with cottage cheese, Splenda, cinnamon & walnuts.  Mound on the bread, and place on foil lined toaster oven tray.  Bake at 375 for 5-10 minutes. Make coffee or tea. Eat grapefruit. 

Your toaster oven may vary, so make sure it looks melty, but not brown.

This has about 375 calories, 20+ grams of protein, 8+ grams of fiber, and is very low fat.  Lots of energy!
