I wanted to quickly share with you all a snack that has become a tradition in my family. My Dad, David K., has been making this 'stack' for himself and his family since I was a little witch. The 'David K. Stack' as we call it is a heavy, delicious and extremely satisfying snack, and is something that is always shared between at least two people. It's filling *wink*!
Filling in a good way though. Yes, this treat has carbs. However, if one uses 100% whole grain bread, unsweetened peanut butter, and just enough natural maple syrup and fruit to moisten this treat while sharing it with another person, it can be a wonderful nutrient-dense component of your diet. Indeed, I had half of this pictured stack with some hot green tea and couldn't eat a thing for the next 5 hours. I just couldn't!
That all being said, I debated as to whether I should even post such a snack or food. I mean, we all have our own standby foods that are less than fabulous in terms of ingredient content. Some are not very photogenic while others are so peculiar we might wonder if anyone else would even eat such a concoction!? Well, this is one of mine. It's simple, delicious, and possibly enticing?!? So, if you're ever in the house with little food on hand, The David K. Stack's ingredients are so typical that it or something like it can usually be thrown together saving you & others from temporary starvation (smile).
Oh, and I think you'll love it...?!
The David K. Stack Ingredients
3 Slices of 100% Whole Grain Bread (Toasted)
Unsweetened Peanut Butter*
Berries, Bananas, Kiwi, peaches, etc.
Pinch of cinnamon
*David K. uses the kind that is 100% ground peanuts from the farmer's market!
Toast your bread. Schmear each slice with a bit of peanut butter. Stack the bread adding a little bit of maple syrup between each slice. Top with berries, a bit more maple syrup so that it moistens the sides, and pinch of cinnamon. Enjoy with your best mate! Coffee, hot tea, and cold milk are all super wonderful beverages for this snack.
p.s. I am visiting my parents this week. I will catch up to all my lovelies' posts as soon as I finish planting for my Mom's Fall/Winter garden;)!
