Meanwhile, core and slice pear and apple 1/4-inch thick. Spread toast with almond butter, top with apple and pear slices, and garnish with chopped almonds if desired. Eat and go!
*Almond Butter may be found next to the jams and jellies in some supermarkets. Otherwise, make it by grinding together 1 cup roasted almonds and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a food processor or blender, then adding 3 tablespoons almond or vegetable oil in a slow, steady stream, and blending until the mixture comes together. This recipe makes 3/4 cup.
**To roast chopped almonds, preheat oven to 350°F. Roast 4-6 minutes, until light brown.
