Fresh cornbread topped with mashed avocado, honey and pomegranate seeds make this Cornbread Avocado Toast recipe a delightful snack or breakfast for Fall. It also makes a great appetizer for Thanksgiving!I started writing this post in Toronto where the leaves are just starting to change and my cornbread consumption is on the rise. I shut my computer and by the time I opened it again I was sitting by a pool in sunny San Diego where it is 85 degrees and the pumpkin spice latte signs in Starbucks are genuinely making me uncomfortable.

We casually crossed the continent for the second time in 10 days. No biggie.

The first trip to California (did you catch my recap and video from Yosemite?!) was planned well in advance. C and I have a pretty close attachment to the Bay Area and try to spend as much time out there as possible. Then C had a work trip come up last minute in San Diego and I decided to tag along. Yes, I am well aware that we are completely spoiled.

For obvious reasons we’re kind of obsessed with California. It’s beautiful, has access to the ocean and mountains and the weather certainly doesn’t hurt. But the one thing that Toronto has over Cali is the beauty of the changing seasons.

I can’t believe I’m saying this.

I am a summer girl. I was born in the summer for a reason and am truly a better, kinder human-being when it’s at least t-shirt weather outside. BUT there is something nice and refreshing about the change in seasons. It certainly gives you an appreciation for summer when the majority of your year is spent hidden inside a Canada Goose (the coat company, not the animal for all you untrendy Americans), and also serves as an internal compass for your year.

While it would be nice to have access to fresh fruits and veggies year round, I kind of like that come fall/winter I feel totally legit in eating cornbread on the daily. I can detox from it in summer, right?! I can’t imagine that I would get that same seasonal food craving experience in California.

So while I’m in San Diego you better bet I’ll be taking in the sunshine, surf and shrimp tacos but I’m prepared for the awesomeness that is cornbread season i.e. fall once I get home. And in order to keep things interesting I paired it up with the one fruit that is seasonal year round, avocados! Okay fine, it’s seasonal year round in Mexico but you get the idea.

I’m not entirely certain what the moral of this post is other than the fact that I kind of like seasons, wouldn’t mind living in California, Mexico is my mecca for year-round avocados and I am craving cornbread now. Alls to say, life is good.

    WHATTTT. You know how I feel about cornbread. Never would have thought to top it with avocado and pom, but that’s GENIUS. I need to eat ALL THE AVOCADOS before the price goes up again.

    I am living exactly where I want to be…Gosh that sounds good to say! I love the seasons. I love how when the seasons change our appetites change, the produce changes, it is just a good time to switch things up, and I like that. This looks so stinking good! 🙂

    That bit about being a better human being in t-shirt weather? I totally agree. I was born on a tropical island for a reason. No idea why I left haha
    But, I will admit, I love the layers, candles, pumpkin and other seasonal suff that comes with fall. Jury’s still out on winter tho :/

    Wow, these photos are stunning! Love the contrast of the light pastel green of the mashed up avocados and the bright red pop of colour of the pomegranate seeds! Can you believe I never had cornbread? And you got me sold when you combined it with pumpkin, I’ll just have to try it and make a loaf next weekend 🙂

    ps. regarding your new design, I’m looking at your site through Internet Explorer and the header logo is juxtaposed several times (and is it normal that the comment font is reeeally tiny and hard to see?) -> I just checked on Chrome, and there your logo looks fine, it is displayed just once 🙂 (but the comment font is still really small.)

      Thanks for the feedback, lovely! I’ve heard some complaints about how it looks in Explorer so I’ll have my designer look into it. Much appreciated!!!

    I love to mix up breads for the avocado toast, never tried the cornbread, but it sound like an awesome combination. I love the addition of pomegranate seeds.

    Despite the hellish winters here in Boston, I cannot complain about the beautiful seasons (especially fall right now!!!). Also can’t complain about the genius of this combo— cornbread, avocado toast, and pomegranate are three of my favorite things EVER.

      Right?! They’re all kind of epic on their own that I wasn’t sure about the combo, but it’s PERFECTION. Have not slowed down on the cornbread or avocado toast addiction!
