Have you met the possibilities of banana toast? We all love avocado toast, both for Instagram reasons and deliciousness traits, but there are times sometimes the avocado goes overboard. Don't get me wrong, I love avocados and am in no way breaking up with them, but calorie and fat (albeit healthy fat) numbers tend to creep up there with avocado toast consumption. And also cost...yikes. Which is where bananas come in. 

Bananas have fiber, potassium, B-6, manganese and vitamin C to name a few nutrients and a medium banana clocks in about 100 calories. You can also get a ton of bananas for way less than 2 avocados cost. So after stumbling across the use of bananas on toast in the latest Jamie Oliver book, I thought I  needed to introduce you to 6 options of how you can jump on this brilliant breakfast or snack!
