There are no scary ingredients in this Monster Toast Halloween recipe, just 100% plant-based goodness.
Halloween food is often super sugary and full of additives, but I have almost taken it back to basics with this avocado toast with a twist. It includes two of my favourite foods that are naturally green- AVOCADO and PEAS. I’ve paired them with lime juice and green Pumpkin Seed and Chia That Protein powder for extra nutritional benefits. If you’re interested, there’s some pretty comprehensive information about the vitamins and minerals in pumpkin and chia seeds over on the That Protein website so follow this link to take a look.
How to make a Halloween Monster Toast
I used sliced black olives for eyes, bread for teeth shapes and tomato puree for blood! Credit to my boyfriend for cutting out the mouths while I was finding all of my Halloween decorations for the photo shoot! I think he did a great job and it shows you that you can make these avocado toast monsters as cute/goofy or scary as you want to.
Halloween party idea
It was so much fun to make these and I think they would be perfect for any Halloween party. It might even be a good way to trick the kids into eating some veggies and protein before they fill up on chocolate and sugary treats! You could even serve the toppings separate to the toast so people can make their own face!

Which of the toast monsters is your favourite?
P.S. I am collaborating with That Protein on a series of recipes after winning Best Vegan Blog at the Health Blog Awards 2017, sponsored by That Protein. I love That Protein powders because they taste great and that there are no added flavours or artificial sweeteners – there is no added sugar in 4/5 flavours and the nutty nutty peanut butter is sweetened with a bit of coconut sugar.
