Rice cake slice

rice cake sliceFor 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.

I love using rice cakes as a base for this slice and am going to play around with using it as an ingredient for other recipes too. The Pureharvest rice cakes are made from 100% brown rice.

The recipe only takes minute to makes, so handy when you are short on time.

You could easily get creative and add more seeds to the slice to jazz it up a little.

    I don’t usually have tahini in the house- do you have any suggestions about what I could use in it’s place?

    You can also buy puffed rice in the whole foods sections in most big supermarkets- just rice no sugar or salt or anything else. I use them in recipes as a rice bubble substitute. Might be an alternative to rice cakes in this recipe- no need to crush and nothing else added at all and possibly cheaper.
