Avocado Toast: Sweet vs. Savory

It’s no secret that I love bread and sometimes I get on a toast kick where that’s all I want for breakfast. While there’s nothing wrong with plain toast, I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to elevate toast to the next level. These recipes make a quick and easy breakfast but I’ve been known to eat them for lunch or dinner, too!

2 avocado toast

I just recently tried Pepperidge Farm® Harvest Blends™ bread and it was perfect for these different toast recipes. It has a soft texture but it still has a heartiness that can handle all the toppings. Plus it tastes fresh. So here are some of my favorite combos:

simple mango toast

This avocado mango toast is a sweet + creamy combination which would be perfect on its own or with scrambled eggs. Here’s what you need:

  •    1/2 avocado
  •    1/4 cup diced mango
  •    Squeeze of fresh lime
  •    Small handful of cilantro, chopped
  •    Dash of red pepper flakes
  •    Pinch of sea salt

All of you have to do is mash the avocado, spread it out on the toast, and top with mango, cilantro, lime, red pepper, and sea salt. DONE.

black bean avocado toast

If you’re more of a savory person, this salty + savory combo might be more your style. It’s like a taco on your toast! Here’s what you need:

  •    1/2 avocado
  •    1/4 cup black beans
  •    2 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  •    Small handful of cilantro, chopped
  •    Sea salt

Mash the avocado and spread over the toast. Top with black beans and chopped tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with basil and sea salt.

  1. Hmm… I guess I would say it depends on my mood; they both look really good. I would probably go for sweet more of the time than savory.

  2. Avocado toast is my actual obsession! i have never thought to add beans though! I love pb and banana combos but also love hummus, avocado, carrot, and spinach combos 🙂

  3. Can’t I just have one of each? 😉
    Not even kidding – I’m totally making that savory one for lunch today. Sounds so good!!

  4. I love avocado toast. I hate having to pick one but I might have to go with savoury today!

  5. Angela @marathonsandmotivation.com says:

    They both look wonderful!! I would go with the savory & have the sweet for dessert 🙂

  6. Thank you for your encouragement to make avocado toast. We are having savory toast this evening with fresh tomato slices and roasted red bell pepper. Delicious!

  7. I’m all about avocado toast!! I never thought of adding other ingredients to it too though. I really want to try adding black beans!


  8. I am more of a savory love the black beans!

  9. I’ve heard of putting fruit, like blueberries or pomegranate arils, in guacamole but I haven’t tried it yet! I’ll have to get on that!

  10. I’ll take a slice of each, I’m a sweet and savory kinda girl!

  11. I have avocado quite often. Love your suggestion of these toppings! Yum!

  12. I LOVE a good avo toast, I think I would have to pick the savoury one though!! Both look great however.


  13. I would have never thought about the avocado and mango! I never considered going sweet with avocado toast. What a unique combination – I have to try it!

  14. i am definitely more of a sweet kind of girl – for the most part. what great combos!

  15. I’m totally a savory! Avocado toast is a great way to get in some healthy fats. The black bean toast is right up my alley though I have to admit I like it spicy so I’d probably drizzle some Cholula over that!

  16. Savory for me! Mostly. Can I have both 🙂

  17. I have such a sweet tooth. Mango and avocado? Sold.

  18. I’m an avocado addict. I eat a couple of avos a day:) Love this simple recipe!
