Keto Avocado Toast
Okay, sure, everyone likes to make fun of millennials for loving avocado toast and pumpkin spice lattes. But, here's the thing... they both became popular because they're DELICIOUS!
That's why I have no shame digging in to this amazing Keto avocado toast. I top mine with a fried egg and a slice of bacon for the perfect breakfast. Sometimes, I even enjoy it with a low carb pumpkin spice latte.
To be honest, it's so tasty, I've been known to make it for lunch or dinner as well. There's never a bad time of day for avocado toast.
And besides being super tasty and satisfying, it's also so quick and easy to whip up. I usually have a batch of baked bacon ready to go, which means this meal takes less than 20 minutes to make. How great is that?
Did you used to love avocado toast before you started eating low-carb? Or, do you just want to see what all the hype is about? Either way, you definitely have to give this Keto-friendly version a try!
Are Avocados Good For Keto?
Yes. Also, yes. And, in case you missed it the first two times, YES.
Avocados are packed with heart-healthy fats and low in net carbs. So, basically, the definition of a Keto-friendly food.
They're also a good source of nutrients, namely fiber and potassium. In fact, they're actually a better source of potassium than bananas!
A medium avocado, which is around 150 grams, will have 12 grams of carbohydrates and 10 grams of fiber. That's only 2 net carbs! Plus, that same serving size has 708 milligrams of potassium.
Long story short: avocados are great for a Keto diet. And low-carb avocado toast is a perfect way to enjoy them.
What Is Keto Microwave Bread?
Have you ever heard of "Keto microwave bread" or "90-second bread"? It's what we use for this recipe, and it's awesome!
Basically, Keto microwave bread refers to a low-carb batter that you can mix up in a bowl, then cook for 90 seconds in the microwave. The end result is a delicious quick-bread that's very low in carbs.
There are plenty of variations for microwave bread. I personally like to use almond flour, egg, butter, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, salt, and garlic powder. I also add salt and pepper to taste.
For me, this combination gives me just the right texture and flavor. It's not too eggy, not too dense, but just right for my avocado toast.
I will say that most microwave bread is better after being toasted. You can use a regular toaster, or stick it in your oven with the broiler on.
Can You Prep Keto Microwave Bread Ahead Of Time?
You bet! Feel free to whip up the bread in advance. Or, if you only want one serving of avocado toast, you can store the other piece of bread for later.
I would recommend storing the bread right out of the microwave, before you toast it. Place it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
When you're ready to enjoy, just pop the bread in the toaster. This will warm it up AND toast the outsides. Win-win!
Variations For This Recipe
There are SO many ways to enjoy avocado toast. I love this version with eggs and bacon, but feel free to get creative!
For something simple, you could top the mashed avocado with some red pepper flakes and a squeeze of lemon. What a delightful snack.
Or maybe you want to add some arugula and sea salt. Microgreens are also delicious for a plant-forward meal.
On the other hand, you could get fancy with smoked salmon, cucumber, red onion, and some sesame seeds. Maybe even a little cream cheese to top it off!
Long story short, there's no limit to the ways you can enjoy low-carb avocado toast. You could find a different way to make it every day of the week if you like.
