Any other avocado toast fans out there?

This loaf is my favorite way to enjoy avo toast — I like to toast the slices and then spread with avocado mixed with a little lemon juice, salt and pepper — not only is this a far healthier and filling way that spreading avocado on bread, it’s also far tastier as this loaf is delicious on its own.

To lower the carb content, you can use zucchini only as the vegetable content (though it’s tastier with all three vegetables). You can also change up the seeds with nuts if you prefer, and add in some dried herbs to change the flavour profile.

This loaf freezes really well, which makes it a great make-ahead meal option. Simply take a slice out of the freezer and pop it in the toaster for a quick and easy breakfast or snack.
