This simple white bean avocado combo tastes great and makes a healthy and delicious, balanced meal or snack.



  • 12 slices bread of choice, toasted (use gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/2 ripe avocado (60 g)
  • 1/3 cup white beans (60 g, canellini beans)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • light squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Topping Ideas


  1. Add the beans to a small dish and mash with the back of a fork. I like them completely smooth but you can leave some beans whole if you like more texture. Add the avocado, lemon and sea salt and mix.
  2. Spread on toast, add any desired toppings and enjoy.


This makes quite a large amount of smashed avocado so you can either load up one slice of bread or spread it onto 2 slices to serve 1 or 2. I eat this as a meal. If you’re looking for a lighter snack-sized avocado toast, I’d use 1/4 of an avocado and a few tablespoons of white beans. It doesn’t have to be exact. If you’d prefer more proteinĀ and less fat, you can use more beans than avocado and vice versa.
