March 16, 2020   |   Gluten-Free Living   |   Little Northern Bakehouse

As all-day snacking steals the spotlight from main-event meals more often, we’re not surprised—we’re celebrating! Our gluten-free slices love being the toast of the town for bread-based bites. A versatile performer with nutritious co-stars, toast’s rapid rise to the A-list of snacks is deliciously well-deserved. Whether you cast them in a starring or supporting role, our lineup of toppable toasts are always on cue. Try our gluten-free guide to what’s hot (and cool!) on toast right now. With a whole week of inspiring options for day or night, you’ve got everything you need to mix and match to suit your snacking style!

Tomato Toast on White Wide Slice

Spread vegan mayo on toasted Little Northern Bakehouse White Wide Slice gluten-free bread. Top with tangy sliced roma tomatoes for a zesty, anytime-of-day snack.  For a spaghetti western twist, swap the mayo for pesto (or try one of our favourites, Follow Your Heart’s Pesto Vegenaise (Earth Island in Canada)). Don’t have fresh tomatoes? Try this with sun-dried tomatoes. Add a fresh flair with finely sliced fresh basil (a window-garden go-to), or a little zing with a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Extra hungry? Try this toast topper on gluten-free Plain Bagel halves for a grumble-taming treat.

Avocado Toast on Seeds & Grains

Take in a classic on #ToastTuesday with an avocado toast that never goes out of style. Top our delicious, nutty (but nut-free!) gluten-free Seeds & Grains toast slices with sliced avocado and garnish with lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt. Spice it up with a sprinkle of chili flakes if you like a little heat, or add an extra layer of creaminess with a schmear of non-dairy cream cheese.

Yogurt & Granola Toast on Whole Grain Wide Slice

Think outside the bowl and top your toast with this unconventional trio of textures. Granola, fresh berries, and plant-based yogurt might seem a little strange if you’re new to the yogurt-on-toast idea, but we promise it’s heavenly spread across our Whole Grain Wide Slice. Whether you go with the subtle tang of straight-up plain yogurt, or a slightly sweet vanilla variation, this toast-topping combo is a scrumptious way to start the day—or finish it. Don’t have fresh berries? Jam works, too! (Try some easy DIY with this recipe for sugar-free jam using frozen strawberries)

Nut-free Butter and Banana Toast on Sprouted Honey Oat

Thursday’s primetime line-up is lip-smacking anytime. This toasty treat stars our Sprouted Honey Oat bread. Pile it high with back-to-back (allergy-friendly) after-school specials: nut-free butter and sliced bananas. Dust with cinnamon for a touch of warmth. And for a fun finish, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips (or go for grown-up sophistication with crunchy cacao nibs). Hungry? Try this combo with our toasted Cinnamon Raisin Bagel for a heartier bite.

Hummus and Cucumber Ribbon Toast on Sprouted 7 Grain

Streaming now: ribbons of cucumber piled atop a generous layer of creamy hummus on our Sprouted 7 Grain toast. Marathon weekend ahead? Kick-start it with this toasty combo and a dash of chili flakes to get warmed up. Plan to unplug? Chill with a cooling garnish of fresh dill. No fresh cucumbers or dill nearby? Brighten up your hummus on toast with thinly sliced dill pickles instead. (Bonus idea: if you’re lucky enough to have homemade or locally-crafted dill pickles on-hand, use the dill and pickled garlic as a flavourful garnish). However you choose to slice it, celebrate—it’s Friyay!
