In my book, it doesn't get any better than Avocado Toast, and this Keto Avocado Toast is every bit as enticing as the "real thing." You start with a chaffle, then add in creamy avocado, sharp cheddar cheese, a perfectly fried egg, and crispy bacon. Finish it off with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt for a delightful breakfast or snack that will keep you fueled for hours.
I don't know about you, but toast has always been one of my favorite breakfasts and snacks.
I'm not talking about boring old toast with butter.
(Life is too short for that!)
What I'm talking about is fun creative toasts with toppings. There are just so many crave-worthy combinations.
Avocado toast has always been a particular favorite of mine. It works just as well for a meal as it does for a snack.
This Keto Avocado Toast is one I never get tired of! Does it get any better than creamy avocado, melty cheese, and a crispy fried egg all topped off with crumbled bacon? I think not!
It is absolutely the perfect way to start the day!
How to Make Keto Avocado Toast
First, make your chaffle by heating your waffle iron and mixing the egg, mozzarella, and almond flour in a small bowl.
Spread half of the mixture on a hot waffle iron and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until crispy. Repeat with the other half of the mix.
Next, preheat the broiler to high. Spread half of the avocado on each chaffle.
Top with cheese and broil for about 3 minutes, until the cheese melts.
Finally, fry the egg and place one on each chaffle. Top with bacon and Maldon sea salt and serve.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is avocado good for ketosis?
Yes! Avocado is one of the best foods around for the keto diet. Not only is it loaded with healthy fats, but it is also a great source of fiber. Fiber can help with digestive issues that are commonly associated with the keto diet and can help you stay full longer. One study showed that eating half of an avocado for lunch helped people to fill full for up to 5 hours after the meal. (Of course, when you are in ketosis, chances are you would be full much longer!)
How many carbs are in avocado?
While 146 grams (about 1 cup sliced) of avocado has 12 grams of carbohydrates, it also has 10 grams of fiber. This gives it just two net carbs.
Is avocado toast keto?
As long as you use keto-friendly bread (or in this case a chaffle), avocado toast is great for a keto diet.
How many calories are in avocado toast?
The calories in avocado toast will vary according to the recipe, and what type of bread is used. This avocado toast is intended as a meal and has 600 calories and four net carbs.
Can you make this recipe ahead of time?
You can make the chaffle ahead of time, but I do not recommend making the full recipe.
