Banana Avocado Toast

Oh my sweet mercy. Move over peanut butter banana toast, there’s a new chief in town. I was super skeptical when I first saw this on food52, tucked away under Kristen Miglorious’ Genius Recipes. And she found this from Apollonia Poilâne’s new book, Poilane.

So naturally. I had to make it. Try it. Fall in love with it. And never look back. 

I haven’t made peanut butter banana toast since. Yikes!

Good news is that it’s just as easy to make. All you need is what you see pictured: a banana, lime + zest, avocado, toast and some crushed red pepper. Yes. Lime and crushed red pepper. Trust me. You’ll be glad you did.

All you do now is assemble:

And enjoy.


  • 1 ripe banana, not over ripe, but just right, sliced
  • 2 slices of bread (if you’re fancy and doing it right- I didn’t here- you’ll use Sourdough)
  • 1 ripe medium avocado, mashed
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • Splash of lime juice (to taste, 2tsp-2tbsp)
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp honey


  1. Toast your bread
  2. Spread mashed avocado on toast. Top with banana slices, lime zest, lime juice and red pepper flakes. Drizzle with honey.
  3. That is literally it. Now take a bite and notice how your taste buds explode. And your brain gets a little confused. But then realizes its in a good way and you can’t stop…
