Avocado-apple spread

Avocado, avocado, avocado… If you follow my recipes and blogs, you already know just how complicated my relationship with avocado used to be and how IN LOVE with it I am today.

This recipe is another variation on my favourite guacamole… maybe one day I will gather the courage and share with you the recipe of my guacamole, which as you might guess, is not the classical version 😛

Meanwhile, please enjoy my avocado-apple spread, savoury and sweet and just perfect for a Sunday breakfast or a brunch!

Preparation time: 10 min

Cooking time: 2 min

Per servings: 2


  • 2 small/medium avocados
  • 1/2 medium apple (I use Honeycrisp variety; use any red and sweet variety, if the first is unavailable)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • A pinch of chile powder
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika powder
  • 10 hazelnuts
  • Bread of your choice

Equipment & tools:

  • Frying pan


  1. Chop the hazelnuts roughly and fry/grill them for about 2 min on a frying pan. Don’t forget to toss them continuously to avoid burned affect. Also, don’t use any oil, they’ll get roasted just fine without it.
  2. Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed, scoop out the flesh in a bowl and puree it using a fork.
  3. Add the lemon juice, salt, paprika, chile and olive oil, and mix.
  4. Meanwhile cut the apple with the skin on small dice (app. 3*3 mm).
  5. Add chopped apples to the avocado mix and mix again.
  6. Cut the bread of your choice to thing slices (app. 1/5-1 cm). I’ve used amazing dark bread from Bartholomew Bakery, but you can use any whole wheat version that you like.
  7. Spread the Avocado-Apple mix on top of your toast generously, sprinkle with the roasted hazelnuts and enjoy 🙂

Bonus tip:

The type of bread that I was using for this recipe already has a really rough texture, but if you are using a softer variety, it’s a great idea to toast it prior to applying the spread on.  *Toasting your bread, will prevent it from being soaked with the spread/filling that you will put on top of it 😉
