Ingredients

  • 1 pint ripe strawberries, hulled and quartered (about 4 cups strawberries)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 4 slices thick multigrain bread
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ large ripe avocado, sliced
  • 2-4 slices mozzarella or white cheddar slices, depending on how cheesy you like things

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. In a medium bowl, toss strawberries with coconut sugar so that they are fully coated. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and arrange so that they aren’t crowded. Bake for 20 minutes or until berries are juicy.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Lightly brush or drizzle half of olive oil over two slices of bread and place oiled side down in a skillet. 
  4. Lay mozzarella on top and then add avocado and roasted strawberries. Drizzle two slices of bread with olive oil and place oiled side up on the sandwich. 
  5. Cover with a lid and cook about 4-5 minutes or until golden brown on bottom. Carefully flip the sandwich, reduce heat to medium and cook a few more minutes or until the bread is golden brown. Enjoy immediately! Makes 2 sandwiches.

Recipe Notes

I used a multigrain bread with around 110 calories per slice. Aim for a bread high in nutritional value with no added sugar. You can also make this sandwich on an inside out english muffin!

To make gluten free: Use a gluten free bread. It's easy to find these at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.
