Brown Rice Cakes Recipe
These easy to make baked brown rice cakes are delicious, healthy and made in a fun way to get kids to kids to eat them.
I know what you’re thinking: are these donuts, are these bagels? NO! They are homemade brown rice cakes. They taste much better than the cardboard version they sell at the supermarket and make a great snack for kids and adults alike. If you need more snack ideas click HERE.
All you need to make them are simple ingredients you have in your cupboard, a blender, a mold and an oven. The mold can be any shape you’d like: muffin tin, donut tin, loaf, etc.
To be honest, I chose the donut tin because when I opened my baking cabinet it was the one that was on top and I was too lazy to grab another one. That’s when I thought to myself: heck! let’s make them this shape and see how they turn out. Luckily for me, it worked! these brown rice cakes look really cool. See? sometimes my laziness pays off.
Aside from cool looking, these Brown Rice Cakes are sort of a white canvas. They taste just like toasted rice. I wanted to post this basic recipe so you (and I) can build upon then and create more delicious flavors.
Here are some great ideas: add sautéed onions and garlic, throw in cilantro, parsley or thyme, Spinach or kale, cheese (my fave!), spices like turmeric or cumin and even turn it sweet with stevia and cinnamon. In the next few weeks I will experiment with some of these and post them so you can see how they taste.
I really love when I can make healthy snacks that my daughters like. But a word of advice: tell them they are rice cakes BEFORE they take a bite out of them. My oldest thought it was a donut and got a little disappointed when she bit into it. Luckily, she liked it and had another one.
