Avocado “Toast” + a Yucan Crunch giveaway (AIP & Paleo)

Avocado “Toast” + a Yucan Crunch giveaway (AIP & Paleo)

I went AIP before the big “avocado toast” craze began; however, thanks to Mission Heirloom’s Yucan Crunch crackers, I’ve been able to enjoy my own allergen-friendly version.

Avocado “Toast” + a Yucan Crunch giveaway (AIP & Paleo)


In December 2015, I had the pleasure of visiting Mission Heirloom in Berkeley, CA. Various AIP friends had highly recommended the paleo restaurant with many AIP options, but they also raved about Yucan Crunch crackers. I made it a point to try the Yucan Crunch and absolutely loved it—they really remind me of triscuits. I bought a bag on the spot & used it for breakfasts and snacks throughout the rest of our trip.

Fast forward to now and I’m still a huge Yucan Crunch fan. After my initial stash ran out, I ordered it several more times from the Mission Heirloom website, but luckily, procuring some is even easier these days because Yucan Crunch is now available on Amazon! And they're even Amazon Prime eligible!

To celebrate the Amazon debut of Yucan Crunch, I’m sharing my super easy avocado “toast” recipe. This is another recipe that almost isn’t a recipe due to how simple it is. But goodness, it is so tasty & really feels like a treat when I make it. Most often I’ll have the avocado toast plain, but it’s also delicious topped with smoked salmon or prosciutto.

Mission Heirloom has graciously agreed to give one of my readers FREE 4-pack of Yucan Crunch. Leave a commend on this post sharing how you'd most like to use Yucan Crunch crackers. This giveaway is only open to US residents and will run until Monday April 10, 2017.


Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary 4-pack of Yucan Crunch; however, this is a product I have happily purchased in the past & will continue to purchase in the future. I would never recommend a product I didn’t stand behind 100%. 

Avocado “Toast" 
yields 1 serving

1 avocado
juice from 1/4 lemon
Yucan Crunch, broken into large (or small) pieces
truffle salt, as needed (or other finishing salt of your choice.

  1. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the lemon juice. 
  2. Spread the avocado/lemon mixture onto pieces of Yucan Crunch
  3. Sprinkle with truffle salt. Eat immediately :) 

Note: some people prefer to toast their Yucan Crunch in a skillet or under the broiler, but I most often prefer it un-toasted. Feel free to do either, depending on your own preferences. Please DO NOT toast it in an actual toaster, as it could cause a fire if pieces break off into the toaster.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation, recipe, and giveaway! For a special treat I'd add some ghee, coconut sugar, and cinnamon to the crackers to make cinnamon toast (reminiscent of what I had as a kid).

  2. I want to make the avocado toast for my daughter when she visits from California! Sounds Yummy :)

  3. These sound delicious! Honestly, I would probably eat them straight up because I'm always craving crunchy snacks! They sound like they would also be good dipped in guacamole, and used to scoop up tuna salad!

  5. I love yucan crunch! My favorite topping has to be mashed avocado with capers and smoked salmon. It reminds me of the old days when I used to enjoy a bagel and lox.

  7. One of my favorite ways to eat Yucan Crunch is with homemade sprouted refried black beans (made with lard or coconut oil and garlic) spread on top, with a dollop of cashew sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro or chives. Another delicious option is to combine za'atar seasoning (sumac, thyme, marjoram, savory, white sesame seeds & salt) with extra virgin olive oil as a dip for Yucan Crunch. Oh my, this reminds me that it's time to place a new order on Amazon! --or stand by for a prize pack! :)

  8. Nothing beats Yucan Crunch spread with liver pate for a power snack! I make mine with veal liver, onions, garlic, thyme, and ghee. The combination of crunchy/soft is so satisfying!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yucan Crunch seems all the rage right now! I can't wait to try it. The only AIP crunch I really have these days is plantain chips, so a new crunch is always welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would love to use them to make an almond butter and jelly toast! Maybe I'll add some cocoa nibs or sliced banana ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Looks delicious! I'm always looking for one handed snacks as a busy mom of a toddler and 3 month old...I would probably dip it in some hummus!

    ReplyDelete
  12. This certainly is not healthy, but one thing I miss is bread and herb oil from restaurants. The Yucan Crunch acts as a perfect bread because it soaks up the oil and you can stop toasting earlier if you want the "bread" to be softer after it soaks up oil, or toast it longer and it will retain that crunch for a while. I toast the broken pieces in the pack, drizzle on some olive oil, and sprinkle on pink salt, dried oregano, and dried basil. Perfect occasional salty snack. Can also roast some garlic, puree with herbs and olive oil, and dip the crackers in for more scrumptiousness.

  13. This sounds amazing! I'd love to try these crackers, the hardest part about being AIP for me has been satisfying my snack cravings for foods that are not sweet. I'd love to use these with avocado, prosciutto, artichoke "hummus", and with soups and salads! ��

  31. I love these Yucan Crunch morsels of heaven! I love them just as they are even with no toppings. It's so nice to know they are so easily accessible from Amazon. I use Amazon weekly so that's super convenient. I have only ordered them once in the past so this is great news! I think if I get them again I'm going to definitely try avocado on top. I'd be curious to try them with sardines and also zucchini cheese with sliced cucumbers
