Avocado toast is one of the simplest ideas yet makes the most delicious snack or meal. I created miniature avocado toasts that are perfect for serving at your next party!
Whenever I’m in the snacking mood, walnuts are one of my go-to’s! I love that they’re not only delicious but nutritious and have good fats (2.5g monounsaturated fat and 13g polyunsaturated fat – including 2.5g omega-3 ALA – per one ounce)! I also love to use walnuts in new recipes. While I enjoy them on their own, I wanted to come up with a delicious party appetizer that could combine my love for walnuts with a bite-size recipe! So my wheels started turning…
The Perfect Party Appetizer
I often order avocado toast on a menu when I see it so I’ve enjoyed lots of variations and twists on the dish. The toasts are often quite large, and then it hit me! I could create mini avocado toasts topped with chopped walnuts for the ultimate party appetizer or weeknight meal. Plus, it’s ready in MINUTES.
You can scale down any of your favorite toast recipes by using a sliced baguette, toasted, instead of larger bread. Create a breakfast avocado toast by adding eggs for a brunch get-together! My favorite version, however, is with feta and walnuts.

Once you have the mini avocado toasts, it’s time for the toppings. I chose feta, everything bagel seasoning, and of course – walnuts! They’re nutritious and offer 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber, and 2.5 grams of omega-3 ALA per ounce. Walnuts are the perfect topping for avocado toast, and you can feel good about what you’re eating!
How to Make Mini Avocado Toast
Making avocado toast is about as simple as it looks. You start with a delicious toasted bread, and I’ve used a baguette so I could make “miniature” sized toasts. Next, you use a fork to “mush” your avocado and spread it on the toasts. Add on crumbled feta, chopped walnuts, and a sprinkling of everything bagel seasoning! If you don’t have the seasoning, you can make your own with the list below.
Everything Bagel Seasoning
- Sesame Seeds
- Poppy Seeds
- Sea Salt
- Minced Onion
- Minced Garlic
One tip I’ve found to avoid the avocados turning brown is to mix in a little lime juice as you mash it up. The citrus helps prevent the browning! This way, you can prep them before your guests arrive and they’ll still be perfectly delicious!
When choosing your avocados, be sure to choose ripe Hass avocados that have a slight squeeze to them when pressed.
Mini Avocado Toasts
- 1 whole grain baguette sliced
- 4 large avocados ripe
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/4 cup feta crumbled
- 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
- 2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning
- Toast baguette slices at 350 degrees for 7 minutes or until crisp.
- Cut avocados in half, remove the pit, and scoop flesh into a bowl. Add lime juice and mash with a fork.
- Spread avocado on each toast slice.
- Top with crumbled feta, chopped walnuts, and everything bagel seasoning.
Serve these mini avocado toasts up on a wooden board, tray, or even a cake stand. They would also be a delicious addition to a charcuterie board by laying out all the ingredients for guests to create their own avocado toast creations. I like the idea of an Avocado Toast Bar, don’t you think?
