comfort/superfood: peanut butter, banana, & honey toast

VEGETARIAN | DAIRY-FREE There’s a magical intersection in food, where comfort food meets superfood. It’s my happy place. I love finding ways to create familiar flavors with supercharged ingredients.

It’s a humble little dish, with a handful of complimentary ingredients that join hands and SING in a brilliant symphony of chunky, tangy goodness.
