gluten free avocado toastIf you had told me 7 years ago that I’d be eating avocado, mashed over toast, on repeat, I’d have thought you were crazy.

Alas, here we are in the age of “hipster toast”—and I am totally obsessed.

healthy avocado toastSo today I am sharing with you the breakfast that never fails me.

Let’s make my go-to avocado toast!

how to choose a ripe avocadoThe best avocado toast starts with a perfectly ripe avocado. When choosing the perfect avocado at the store, pick one that that is just ripe—firm, but slightly soft to touch. Slice to use within 2 days of purchase and store leftovers in airtight container with pit still in—this will help keep the avocado fresh for up to 3 more days.

Second, avocado toast needs a reliable base—so pick your favorite bread and get it perfectly toasty. I promise, the soft avocado mash pairs best with a warm, crispy bread. I used gluten free toast, but you can choose your favorite!
