Looking to level up your breakfast game? Give this tasty twist on typical toast a shot.

Blackberry-Pistachio Custard Toast

In this recipe, I replace the standard spread (buh-bye, butter) with a layer of lush, flavorful and protein-rich (thanks to the Greek yogurt) custard. Then it’s topped off with blackberries, which impart a sweet-tartness as well as fiber; pistachios, which lend a creamy crunch; and lemon zest for a dose of bright citrus. One bite and you’ll never go back to the old way of doing things. Regular toast is, well, toast.

Servings: 2 slices
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 slices whole-grain bread
  • 1 egg
  • cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • ~10 frozen blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon pistachios=
  • Optional toppings: Lemon zest, maple syrup drizzle, pinch salt


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Place bread on a prepared baking tray and press down using the back of a spoon to create a well, leaving the crust slightly elevated.
  • In a bowl, whisk together egg, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt until combined. Slowly pour custard mixture into each slice of bread to ensure it doesn’t overflow.
  • Top with blackberries and pistachios and bake 10 to 13 minutes or until toast slightly firms and doesn’t jiggle too much—it should feel mostly set when cooked.
  • Let cool for a few minutes and top with optional lemon zest, a drizzle of maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
