Keto Diet

A Better Avocado Toast

Yes, you can still have avocado toast on keto – if you use our low-carb loaf made with nut butters and coconut flour. The leftover bread is delicious toasted and buttered, for sandwiches or made into French toast.

TERRIFIC TOAST: With only 11 grams of carbs per serving, this bread keeps insulin levels low – one reason to favor a lower carb count. Ours uses a combination of almond and cashew butter to form a protein-packed base. The cashew butter is rich in iron, copper and phosphorus, while the almond butter contains vitamin E and calcium.

Ingredients

Bread

  • 3 tbsp coconut flour 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds + 1 tbsp whole flaxseeds (TRY: Frontier Co-op Whole Flax Seeds) ½ tsp baking soda ½ tsp sea salt ½ cup almond butter ½ cup cashew butter 4 large eggs, room temperature, separated ¼ cup plain unsweetened almond milk 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Topping

  • ripe avocados, as needed

    fresh lemon juice, as needed

    sea salt, to taste

    everything bagel spice mix or hot sauce, optional

Preparation

1. Prepare bread: Place racks in center and lower rung of oven and preheat to 300ºF. Fill a baking dish with water and place on the lower rung. Mist an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, line with parchment and mist again.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut flour, ground flaxseeds, baking soda and ½ tsp salt, breaking up any lumps. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat almond butter, cashew butter and egg yolks until well combined, 1 minute. Beat in almond milk and vinegar. Stir in coconut flour mixture. In a separate bowl, using clean, dry beaters, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold one-quarter of whites into almond butter mixture to lighten, then fold in remaining whites until incorporated.

3. Transfer batter to loaf pan, spread evenly and sprinkle with whole flaxseeds; bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until golden. Let cool in pan for 15 minutes, then turn out bread; let cool completely. Cut into 12 slices.

4. To prepare 2 servings: Toast 4 slices bread. Mash 1 avocado with lemon juice and salt, to taste. Spread avocado carefully over bread, top with bagel spice or hot sauce (if using). Wrap remaining bread well and refrigerate up to 3 days.
