Banana Toast – Just for Fun

Perhaps you can’t get enough of Avocado Toast, or perhaps you are just fed up with all the hype! Perhaps you view it as a generational thing, given how much grief millennials have been getting about it.

I happen to think Avocado Toast is delicious, especially when topped with some tomatoes and basil (see here for some great variation on this theme). but avocados don’t come cheap. They are one of the pricier produce out there, and it seems that they are not the best choice environmentally speaking either.

So, to offer an alternative to the Avocado Toast craze, I offer you Banana Toast! Cheaper than chips and easy to make. Plus, unlike Avocado Toast that may not work with things like chocolate chips, Banana Toast is friends with chocolate, cinnamon, raisins, craisins, coconut flakes, different protein powders (if you like to mix them in with the banana) and all that good stuff!

All you need is a good piece of bread – I love sprouted kinds – and a fork to mush that banana. Spread the love and accessorize!

Banana Toast


What you’ll need:

  • 1 banana
  • 2 pieces of bread (whole grain and/or sprouted recommended)
  • Optional: any topping of your choosing (raisins, craisins, chocolate chips, cinnamon, coconut flakes, brown sugar,…)


What you’ll do:

  1. Toast the bread.
  2. While bread is toasting, mash the banana with the fork until well mashed.
  3. Spread the mashed banana over the toast, and top with any topping of your choice and enjoy!

  1. I like your attempt at an alternative. However, bananas are not a good choice either from an environmental or social justice perspective. Perhaps some local seasonal fruit w/ or w/o a nut butter would be good????

  2. I like your trying to find an alternative to avocadoes but given the environmental and social justice cost of bananas perhaps they are not the best choice. Maybe some seasonal fruit w/ or w/o a nut better???
