Chris and I are coming at you with a recipe this week that hits home for us. Cinnamon sugar toast was something we both had on repeat as kids before school, and we decided that with back to school season in full effect, it was the perfect time to share this. I love when we both discover food favorites that we enjoyed at similar times in our lives across the country, it’s so cool to hear about!An easy and perfectly sweetened cinnamon butter that is ready in 5 minutes or less!

It is perfect for kids, too! #cinnamon #butter #kids #5minute #breakfast #hack #plantbased #veganWe decided to play off of our childhood memories and make a homemade vegan cinnamon butter for you to enjoy and share with your kids (…if you have kids, of course 🙂 ). The base of this spread is the Pure Blends plant-based butter that we found at our local Walmart. It works perfectly in this recipe as it is super creamy and fluffy.

All you have to do is whisk it in a resealable in container with cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup, a little bit of salt and cardamom, if you have it. Pop the lid on the container and place it into the refrigerator until you are ready to use it.

We love to serve ours on toast, but there are also so many other ways to serve it!

  • On pancakes or waffles
  • In mashed sweet potatoes
  • Paired with baked apples or fall fruit
  • Brushed on pineapple rings that are then grilled and caramelized to perfection
  • If you have more ideas, let us know!

There are a ton of vegan options available and spotting this butter made us so excited. Walmart has both the Pure Blends avocado oil and coconut oil based butter; both are delicious and you can use either for this recipe! Also, I found out that Walmart now also has a grocery pickup option?! We actually placed our order ahead and it was ready for us when we arrived. So crazy! We served the cinnamon butter on our breakfast fig toast and man was it good– cinnamon butter, fresh figs, fresh sourdough bread, pistachios, mint and a sprinkle of salt for good measure. Figs are in season and we have been finding amazing ones up here in Washington. If you haven’t had fresh figs, I highly suggest you do ASAP, or at least before the season is over!

Ingredients

Cinnamon Butter

  • 1/4 cup Pure Blends plant-based butter (both avocado oil or coconut oil work)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/16 teaspoon cardamom (optional)

Breakfast Fig Toast

  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 810 fresh figs, sliced into rounds*
  • Roasted pistachios, crushed
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Fresh mint, finely cut

Instructions

  1. In a sealable container, whisk together all of the ingredients for the cinnamon butter. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Pop the lid on and place into the refrigerator you are ready to use it.
  2. For the fig toast: Toast the bread until it is as golden as you would like it. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of the cinnamon butter onto each slice of toast. Top with sliced figs, pistachios, mint, and salt as desired. Dig in!

Notes

  • Ensure that your figs are ripe for the best flavor. You will know when they are nice and squishy, and sometimes oozing with sap from the bottom.

    Apparently figs have dead wasps in them as they need to be pollenated by a female wasp and sometimes they get trapped inside – the dead wasp gets broken down by proteins in the fig, ergo your vegan avo toast with figs recipe ain’t that vegan after all!!! Mind blowing.

    • Chris Petrellese says:

      “Whilst it is true that the majority of figs have had a wasp die inside them, it is in no meaningful way true to say that a vegan eating such a fig is really eating the wasp. The crunchy texture inside a fig comes from its seeds, not the remnants of the wasp, which is completely digested by a naturally occurring enzyme within the walls of the fruit.

      This whole process occurs naturally with no human involvement or cruelty to animals. The survival of both sets of species, of fig wasps and fig trees, is dependent on this astonishing feat of nature. Therefore, in our opinion, and that of just about every vegan you might ask, figs are indeed vegan friendly.” – Expert from Veganfriendly.org
