Sweet Cocoa Avocado Toast Recipe

Cocoa Avocado Toast

In January of 2018 there were near-riots in France as a grocery chain knocked down the price of Nutella, the popular chocolate-hazelnut that’s gathering a following here in the U.S. But is it really worthy of that kind of devotion? After all, the first two ingredients are sugar and palm oil — not ideal fuels to start the day. This sweet cocoa avocado toast has got it all — protein, good fats, whole-grain carbs, and the potassium boost of banana.

While avocado may have seen its day as a trend, it still has plenty of devotees (yours truly included), and has become a fixture on countless breakfast and lunch menus everywhere. After the recent “Nutella riots” as they were dubbed by the press, I merged the concepts of avocado toast and Nutella into one super-simple spread. Using only a handful of real food ingredients, this “Not-ella” spread is oil- and dairy free and sublime. It’s an easy, filling breakfast and a good after-school treat.
