Healthy avocado toast is super easy to make and makes the perfect addition to any breakfast or an anytime snack!
Healthy 5 Minute Avocado ToastAvocado toast has become my new favorite breakfast/snack. It’s healthy, simple, and delicious and best of all, it’s super easy to make and ready in under 5 minutes. In fact, this recipe is so simple we can hardly call it a recipe, but I had to share it with you because of how good it is!

This recipe is for simple avocado toast but the possibilities are endless. Sometimes we like to zest up the avocado toast and top it with tomatoes, bacon, beans, jalapeno, spinach, salmon, or pretty much anything else!
Healthy 5 Minute Avocado ToastTo begin, simply toast your bread; You can use any kind of toast or sliced bread you have but I like to use crusty bread or whole grain toast.  Next, mash an avocado in a small bowl with a fork. Add cilantro, lime, and salt + pepper then spread the mixture on the toasted slice of bread. Sprinkle with pepper flakes and serve!

If you’re having it for breakfast go ahead and top the avocado with an egg cooked any way you like. Our favorite is a sunny side up but poached, scrambled or even hard-boiled also works well.

  2. This is a delicious recipe. I don’t know where that excessively high value from sodium came from, but here is what I calculated, being on a slow sodium diet. I calculated 1/2 avocado, 7 mg sodium; 1 slice of lower sodium whole wheat bread 85 mg sodium; 1 slice regular wheat bread 160 mg sodium; one egg 62 mg sodium. I used lower sodium whole wheat bread, the lime juice, red pepper, and cilantro and my total sodium was 92 mg. Even adding an egg would have boosted the protein and made the total sodium closer to 155 mg. Using more standard whole wheat bread, 28 grams, for 160 mg sodium with no added salt makes it 230 mg with the egg. . This was delicious without any added salt, but I have been on a low sodium diet for over a year now. Any added table salt greatly contributes to the sodium with one quarter teaspoon, a huge amount of salt for one serving, , equaling 580 mg sodium. This recipe can easily be varied to fit your taste and nutritional requirements.

  3. Get that horrible cilantro away from my food. It tastes awful.

    1. 4 to 14% of Americans hate cilantro, probably a good percentage of those due to genetics. Every recipe I have seen that comments on it, says substitute parsley for cilantro, or just leave it out.

  4. I am floored with the utter disrepect yall have for avocado toast as someone with extremely low blood pressure the added salt helps me to not pass out from all these horrid comments. Thank you so much for making an equitable meal that helps out part of the population that isn’t always seen… AS FOR THE REST OF YOU, GUYS U SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES FOR NOT BEING EQUITABLE

    1. Yeah, SO many trolls on here! Some of you people need to go get a life, rather than trolling for sites where you can demonstrate your lack of civility and intelligence.

      I DO wonder about the sodium content listed for variation with eggs. An egg only has about 62 mg of sodium, and an avocado only has about 10 mg, so that listing seems awfully high… But very grateful for the ideas! I’m new to avocados, and everyone in the house likes them, so I think this will go over well as a not-too-heavy meal (planning on adding a soft-boiled egg & crumbled bacon on top).

      @Steve – Excited to try this on a honey wheat bagel, too. Sounds delish!

  5. We really enjoyed this recipe, with ours we just added salt, pepper, and oregano. It was delicious even though we used white bread. 😋🍞🧂🥑

  6. This is such a good recipe. I loved it and lime juice is good for this recipe.

  7. I have recently become aware of “avocado toast” after almost 60 years on this planet., and I must say that I am hooked. I’d like to share my version. I use bagels. I toast them in a bit of olive oil in a fry pan. Halve the bagels and toast them face down with a lid on. The top will be crunchy and the rest of the bagel will be nice and soft. Mash avocado and mix in lemon juice and sea salt. Spread on bagel and top with pepper flakes. Yummy.

  8. I agree with DR. ELLIE IVERSON! A creatyove, imaginative chook will add or subtract ingredients according to one’s taste.
    A more positive way to make the statements would be to say, “I don’t like …, I prefer to ….”

  9. I drizzle balsamic glaze on the sandwich.. It is especially delicious if you have included an egg.

    1. Yeah avocado toasts are the best my kiddos and wife love these too it’s great that it’s healthy and delicious

  10. Really yummy! I added minced garlic, a bit of chili powder and minced onion to the mashed avocado. Delicious 😋

  11. I cut a torta bread in half and browned it under the broiler. I put one serving of avocado mix (made per recipe except I omitted the salt)) on one half of the bread. I put a lightly cooked egg on the other bread, and sprinkled fresh ground pepper and cilantro over all. So simple and so delicious! I have heard of “Avocado Toasts”, but never tried it. Yum!

    I have high blood pressure, too. Fortunately, I am not a salt addict, and, for me, this was fine without the added salt.

    Also, someone might want to refigure the sodium. When you look at the sodium in the individual ingredients, it’s not that much even with the added salt.
