This vegan avocado toast recipe features toasted slices of Ezekiel bread, creamy mashed avocado, everything bagel seasonings, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds! This breakfast is high-protein and it will keep you feeling full until lunch!
Avocado toast is a staple meal in my house! I usually rotate between oatmeal, tofu scramble, and this high-protein avocado toast for breakfast. It’s so easy to make in just 5 minutes, it’s super filling, and it always keeps me feeling satisfied until lunch.
What’s great about this breakfast is that it’s a great source of plant-based fiber and protein! Each serving of toast contains 12 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber! I usually eat two slices of toast for breakfast, so breaking the fast with 24 grams of protein and 18 grams of fiber is a great way to start the day in my books!
How To Make It – Step by Step Instructions
Start by toasting two slices of ezekiel bread or your favorite vegan bread until it’s crispy. While the bread is toasting, mash 1/2 of a large avocado in a small bowl. Spread the mashed avocado over the toast and sprinkle the everything bagel seasonings over each slice. Lastly, add the pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. Serve with your choice of fresh fruit.
I usually serve this high-protein avocado toast with a side of fruit. My favorite fruit options are:
- Banana coins with cinnamon
- Apple slices
- Pear slices
- Orange wedges
How To Store It
This vegan avocado toast is definitely best enjoyed fresh. I never make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge until I’m ready to eat. It tastes best when the bread is warm and crispy! If you’re using Ezekiel bread, I suggest that your store the bread in the fridge or freezer so it lasts longer.
Can I Freeze It?
I wouldn’t freeze the avocado toast once it’s assembled, because it won’t defrost well. However, the loaf of Ezekiel bread freezes perfectly! I usually store the loaf in the freezer and just use a dull butter knife to pry off a few slices as I need them. This bread doesn’t contain any preservatives so it doesn’t last very long on the counter. It will last a little bit longer if stored in the fridge, but it lasts the longest when frozen.
Notes & Substitutions
- Ezekiel Bread Substitutions: I like to use Ezekiel bread because it’s sprouted, organic, and delicious! However, you can use any vegan bread that you like. You can find a list of the best vegan bread brands, here.
- Avocado Substitutions: You can use hummus, vegan cream cheese, peanut butter, jam, or mashed green peas instead of avocado.
- Everything Bagel Seasoning Substitute: If you don’t have it or can’t find it, you can make a mixture of 1/8 tsp garlic granules, 1/8 tsp onion granules, 1/8 tsp sesame seeds, and 1/8 tsp poppy seeds. Add salt to taste.
- Gluten-Free: To make this recipe gluten-free, you need to use gluten-free vegan bread instead of the Ezekiel bread. (I really like BFree, Bloomfield Farms, Manna Organics, and Northern Bakehouse vegan gluten-free bread.)
- Use unsalted pumpkin seeds so you can control how much salt is added to the toast. If you can find everything bagel seasoning that is salt-free, that’s even better! (I love the Simply Organic seasoning or the one from Trader Joes.)
- When you’re assembling the toast, it’s best to sprinkle the everything bagel seasonings directly on top of the mashed avocado so it sticks. If you sprinkle the seasonings on top of all the seeds, the smaller seasonings will have trouble holding on when you pick up the slice of bread.
- Make sure to toast the bread long enough so it’s crisp. I think the vegan avocado toast tastes best when the bread is firm and crisp so it’s a nice contrast to the creamy topping.
