Why This Combination Works:

  • The flavor! I know it might seem a little weird to combine avocado with peanut butter. But the nutty flavor of the peanut butter pairs perfectly with the subtle sweetness of the avocado, resulting in a flavor combination that’s both unique and satisfying.
  • It’s packed with nutrients. Peanut butter avocado toast is a great source of healthy fats, fiber, and has some protein too!
  • It’ll keep you nice and full! The healthy fats and fiber from peanut butter and avocado help to keep you full and satisfied for longer periods of time. Nutritious and filling- major wins.
  • Easy to make. Avocado toast with peanut butter couldn’t be simpler. It’s perfect for a busy morning when you don’t have much time to spare.

Ingredient List

The best part about this recipe is the simplicity of the ingredients. Let’s talk about why these ingredients are so great paired together!

Avocado: Not only are avocados absolutely delicious, but they’re packed with nutrition. Avocados are high in heart-healthy healthy fats, fiber to keep your gut happy, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Including avocados in your breakfast is a no-brainer.

Peanut butter: Peanut butter is the secret ingredient to this flavorful toast and is equally as impressive with heart-healthy fats, vitamins and minerals like vitamin E, a bit of fiber, and plant-based protein. Personally, I love Teddie’s but you can use absolutely any kind that you like.

Whole grain bread: My personal favorite is Dave’s Killer Bread. It’s nutritious, filling, and so flavorful. If whole grain bread isn’t your thing you can use any other bread you like!

Honey: A drizzle of honey is all you need to finish off this dreamy peanut butter avocado toast. It pulls together the perfect combination of sweet and savory. You can also use maple syrup or agave syrup! Or, simply omit if you prefer no added sugar.

How to Make Peanut Butter Avocado Toast

  1. Toast your slices of bread until they’re crispy and golden brown.
  2. Spread a tablespoon of peanut butter evenly on each slice of toast.
  3. Arrange the sliced avocado on top of the peanut butter, dividing it evenly between the two slices.
  4. Drizzle a teaspoon of honey over the top of each slice of toast.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!

This combination is so simple and so good! Pair with a protein source like eggs, Greek yogurt, or cottage cheese for a complete and balanced breakfast.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Make sure to choose a ripe avocado for your toast, it should be soft to the touch but not too mushy.
  • You can also use almond butter, sunflower seed butter, cashew butter or any other nut butter in place of peanut butter.
  • Swap creamy peanut butter for crunch for a different texture.
  • Add some sliced fresh banana on top of the avocado for a sweet and creamy twist.
  • Drizzle some balsamic glaze on top of the avocado for a tangy flavor.
  • Top with some sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds or chia seeds for added crunch and texture.
  • Add a little bit of crumbled bacon or a fried egg on top for a sweet and savory breakfast option.
  • If you’re feeling spicy, you can sprinkle some red pepper flakes or hot sauce on top for a little kick
