Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to shower your kids with some extra love! This Cute Owl Animal Toast is an easy way to sweeten up Valentine breakfast or lunch!
It’s also made with healthy ingredients like strawberries, apples, blueberries, cream cheese and of course toast! You most likely have these ingredients in your fridge right now.
Make this cute Owl Animal Toast as a cute Valentine’s Day breakfast or lunch or just to let your kids know you love them.
We’ve made Valentine toast before on our partner creative site, like these Heart Shaped Animal Toast, but had to do an adorable owl version! Because who can resist cute toast art?
These cream cheese owl toasts are irresistible with their cascading strawberry heart feathers and apple eyes!
Not only are these little owls a hoot to serve, they pack a protein-filled punch that will keep your kids energized throughout the morning. Replacing sugary breakfast cereals is easy when your breakfast looks this cute, and the fruit gives it all the natural sweetness it needs to satisfy sugar-hungry tastebuds.
For a fun alternative, you can color your cream cheese with food coloring or a natural colorant additive (like beet juice!) for a sweet and festive-hued pink owl.
Or mix up your proteins by swapping the cream cheese for some delicious natural peanut or cashew butter. I only recently discovered cashew butter, and let me tell you – it’s creamy texture makes the perfect spread for toasts! It’s a bit lower in protein than peanut butter, but typically contains half the amount of sugar (and adds in a few extra vitamins). Craving a butter flavor but suffer from a nut allergy? Seed butter is a fantastic alternative.
Going for extra healthy start bonus points? Use whole grain and try cottage cheese as a spread.
Get the recipe below to make this adorable Owl Animal Toast.
Cute Owl Animal Toast
- 2 slices bread Toasted
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 3 small strawberries
- 1 apple red
- 4 blueberries
- 1. Spread cream cheese on each piece of toast. If you just took your brick of cream cheese out from the fridge, you can mix it with an electric mixer to soften it up – it will make spreading so much easier!2. Wash and slice your strawberries. Take two of those slices and trim out 2 small triangles – these will act as your owl’s beak.3. Place one strawberry beak in the center of each piece of toast. With the rest of the strawberry slices, cut out heart-shapes with a small heart-shaped cookie cutter.4. Cascade 2 heart-shaped strawberry slices down on each side of the toast. These will act as your owl’s wings.5. Wash your apple and cut 3-4 thin slices. I tried my best to get slices without the core – just to ensure a smooth surface.6. Using a circular cookie cutter, about 1 inch in size (the bottom end of Wilton piping tips is actually the perfect size), cut out 4 circles. These will act as your owl’s irises. Place two on each toast, just on top of the strawberry beak. You will also want the irises close to each other.7. Place 1 blueberry on each iris. These will be the owl’s pupils!8. With the remainder of your apple slices, trim out 4 small triangles and place 2 on top of each piece of toast. These will act as your owl’s ears.Serve and enjoy!
