Cinnamon Raisin Toast with Honey-Walnut Spread

Cinnamon Raisin Toast with Honey-Walnut Spread


½ cup walnut pieces
½ cup plain Greek-style nonfat yogurt
2 teaspoons honey
8 slices cinnamon raisin bread
1 peach (or apple or pear), pitted (or cored)


Toast the walnuts in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Allow them to cool slightly, then chop them finely.

In a small bowl, add the chopped walnuts to the yogurt and honey and stir until well combined. The spread will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Just stir well before using.

When ready to serve, toast the bread and cut the fruit into 1/4–inch slices. Spread about 1 tablespoon of the walnut spread onto each piece of bread. Top each piece with a few slices of fruit. Eat immediately.
