Skip regular avocado toast! Chickpeas boost the protein, fiber, and creaminess of this dish.

This protein-rich chickpea and avocado toast is an excellent breakfast option for busy mornings!

If you’re a fan of the site, you probably know we are obsessed with Avocado Toast. We’re not alone; it seems the rest of the world is also in love with this simple dish! That doesn’t mean we’re going out and buying ridiculously expensive versions at the local brunch spot, though. Instead of shelling out all that cash, we encourage you to make your favorite, healthy breakfast options at home instead. This Chickpea Avocado Toast uses a canned pantry essential to boost the protein and fiber of the dish. As a bonus, it also happens to add extra creaminess to regular avocado toast.

Why Add Chickpeas To Your Avocado Toast?

Chickpea Avocado Toast

While I would be happy to subsist solely on avocado toast, that might not be the best lifestyle choice. Luckily, adding something as simple as chickpeas to this go-to breakfast or snack recipe means I can eat it at least twice a day. That’s because the chickpeas offer extra nutrition in the form of protein and fiber.

This smashed Chickpea Avocado Toast is a healthy and ridiculously quick option for any time of day. Packed with protein, fiber, carbs, and healthy fats, this satiating avocado toast is going to keep your body functioning pretty close to optimal levels. If you wanted to turn this into a lighter snack, you could definitely use this recipe on rice cakes instead of toast.

This recipe is not exactly the best to prepare ahead of time unless you like oxidized avocado. Even with the added lemon juice, this mixture will quickly turn brown. That said, you can mash the chickpeas ahead of time and it will take a few minutes to pull it together with a fresh avocado.
One final note before we move on: If you don’t have any chickpeas, other white beans will work well, like butter beans. And if you’re plagued with unripe avocados, check our clever guide on Ripening Avocados Quickly. (We offer much more than just the paper bag trick.)

Everyone Likes Their Avocado Toast A Little Different

Chickpea Avocado Toast

Texture, toasted-ness, toppings… oh, there are so many variables. Personally, I like a simple avocado toast: citrus for some acidity, a splash of olive oil, and a few liberal turns of salt and pepper. My pet peeve? A textureless, totally-mashed avocado is the quickest way to ruin my avocado toast! But this is personal preference, so make this Chickpea Avocado Toast how you like it!

As always, I love to think of extra additions or swaps I would make to this recipe. A tahini-lemon dressing, some chili flakes, sliced green onions, some crumbled feta cheese…. please stop me. Cilantro, a fried egg, a poached egg, broccoli sprouts… okay, okay, stopping.
