Tired of avocado toast? This tasty toast takes it to the next level with a sweet white bean spread and fresh fruit—a perfect ratio of creamy to crunchy. Store leftover white bean spread in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.


  • 1 15-oz. can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup plant-based milk, unsweetened and unflavored
  • 2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 10 slices whole grain bread, toasted
  • 2 cups mixed fresh fruit, such as berries, kiwifruit, and/or stone fruit


  1. In a food processor or blender combine beans, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon. Cover and process or blend until a smooth paste forms.
  2. Spread toasted bread with bean mixture and top with fruit.

I like the concept – but it was not palatable to myself or my children when made exactly as written. I remedied the spread by adding more maple syrup, more cinnamon, more vanilla, some coconut sugar, a big spoon of peanut butter and some ground flaxseed to thicken it up. I feel like it was good after the additions, but with so much extra sugar it was not any healthier than a simple PB&J. If you have a high-powered blender, I would omit the plant milk because it was a bit runny.

I love many recipes on this site but this was a big failure. Honestly one of the worst things I have ever tasted. And to be clear I love a good bean-based dessert or sweet dish, but wow was this gross.

very creative use of white beans. I usually sub sliced banana for the kiwi–not as pretty but just as good
