This toast is a great high protein, low fat, morning breakfast or snack! Ricotta is a low calorie, high protein, low fat cheese, similar to cottage cheese, so for any of you cheese lovers like me, it’s a great healthier option! I had some raspberries that I needed to use up in my fridge and I had bought ricotta cheese on a whim (it’s not on my typical grocery list), so I decided to create a new toast combo. The pairing of the ricotta with the raspberries, chocolate, nuts and honey, gives this toast a savory, sweet and refreshing taste! It's the perfect summer toast :)

If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home and you may end up creating something even better!
If you don't have Ezekiel bread, used whatever bread you have a t home
If raspberries, use whatever berries you have at home i.e. strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc.
If you don't have Lilly's dairy free chocolate chips, use whatever chocolate chips you have at home, cocoa nibs, sprinkle a little bit of 100% cocoa powder on top or do without
If you don't have almonds, use any nut you have at home or do without
If you don't have honey, use agave nectar, maple syrup or do without
