For some time I have been wanting to come up with a healthier alternative to the rice bubble slice I make for the kids. I still wanted it to be quick and easy to make and I wanted the kids to like it too.
This rice cake slice ticked both boxes. The kids did note that isn’t as sweet as the other one I make, but I am working on recalibrating their taste buds, so after a few more batches of this slice, they will hopefully forget about my other sugar laden version.
- Line a slice tray with baking paper.
- Crush rice cakes by hand into a large bowl.
- In a bowl mix melted coconut oil, tahini, rice malt syrup and vanilla.
- Pour the rice malt syrup mix onto the crushed rice cakes and mix well.
- Pour into the lined tray and press down firmly using your hands.
- Place in the fridge to set for a couple of hours.
- Remove from the fridge and cut into slices with a sharp knife.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
