Gluten-Free Almond Ricotta Toast

by Amie on April 15, 2013

Are you craving a hearty snack?

One that’s made with toasted bread n’ almonds?

Ya, I thought so.

You look like you’re craving a bit of my Almond Ricotta Toast in your life so I’ll let you in on my little recipe secret so that you can go ahead and get on with your day.

Whether you’re lookin’ for an easy breakfast, snack or evening treat- this toast is a fun way to switch up your boring apple and peanut butter and move on to something more exciting.

Can’t have ricotta cheese? No worries.

There are dairy-free coconut milk yogurts are easy substitutes for those of you who can’t have dairy.

The combination of healthy fats, whole grains and protein will hold you over and keep you satisfied while the sweet honey and orange zest will leave your taste buds smiling until your next meal.

So, round up these ingredients and make yourself a quick n’ easy nibble that you’ll be thanking me for.

Almonds? Check. Toast? Check. Ricotta Cheese (or dairy-free cheese)? Check. Almond Butter? Check. Honey? Check? Orange Zest? You betcha.

That’s all you’ll need.

So, what are you waiting for?

Whip out your cute lil’ toaster and have a bite.

I’m dyin ‘ta know what you think!

This is another one of my almond recipes that I created for the Almond Board of California. You can check out all six recipes in the Clean Eating for Spring booklet, found here, along with a few of my healthy eating tips.

I’m excited to announce that I’ve been asked to be a part of the Cooking Light Magazine Blogger’s Connection; so excited to be a part of this great magazine!

What a great idea for breakfast! I might add some bananas on top – love the orange zest for added flavor.
