Take a few tablespoons of smashed avocado and spread it over your toast. Take a pinch of garlic powder and/or fresh ground black pepper and sprinkle over the top. This adds a nice depth of flavor.

Nut Butter Toast:
Spread a thin layer of your favorite nut butter (or SunButter if you have a nut allergy) and add sliced apple or banana. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Hearty Bean Toast:
Using premade hummus or mash chickpeas or cannelloni beans and spread on toast. Anything goes when adding toppings. I like a variation of sliced tomato, cucumber or radish on mine. I also use chopped fresh spinach or avocado slices with a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
