Ingredients

  • 4 slices bread
  • toast toppings (optional, see suggestions in article)

Instructions

  • Place the bread slices in a single layer in your air fryer basket or air fryer tray. I can fit four pieces of bread on one of my trays. You might have to cook fewer at a time if you have a small air fryer.
  • Air fry toast for a total of 4-5 minutes at 400°F (200°C). Use the top rack position for air fryer ovens.
  • Top the toast as desired and enjoy!

Notes

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). The nutrition information for this toast recipe will depend on the type of bread and toppings you use. There are low-calorie breads available that are only 40-45 calories per slice if you need a light option. 
In general, spreadable fats are the most energy-dense toast toppers. This includes items like butter, peanut butter, avocado, and margarine. These high-fat foods will add 50-100 calories per tablespoon to your toast. 
Sliced fresh fruit, roasted red peppers, and light whipped cream cheese are some lower calorie toast topping options. I also like to top toast with a fried egg for some filling high-quality protein. 
If you’re making toast into a meal (rather than a snack), I would have a few pieces. The toast provides carbs, and I would add some healthy fat and protein to that. Here are a few examples of toasts that can work as a meal: 
  • Toast + mashed avocado + sliced tomato + sliced turkey + bacon 
  • Toast + whipped cream cheese + roasted red pepper + thinly sliced cucumber + smoked salmon 
  • Toast + hummus + smoked tofu + sliced tomato + sliced red onion + alfalfa sprouts 
Essentially what we’re doing is turning the toast into an open-faced sandwich. Though toast is usually thought of as a breakfast option, it can definitely work for lunch or dinner as well.
