How many of you like snacking? I’m raising my arm high. How many of you are trying to reach for the healthier snack vs the junk food? I have both arms raised high. How about if I gave you the satisfaction of both? Putting arms down to await pending snackage.
Rice cakes are where it’s at when it comes to my snacking needs. They are light, crunchy, and when you buy the salt-free version then all the better for your daily sodium intake! I love topping my rice cakes in so many different ways! I put cream cheese, dill, and cucumber, peanut butter and a few dark chocolate chips, hummus and bell pepper strips, or one of my newest creations: Cranberry Chocolate Toasted Rice Cakes. Yup. It includes seasonal fruit AND chocolate!
It satisfies my crunchy and chocolate cravings all at once without the cost of over doing it.
Rice cakes are toasted on the stove, then slathered with chocolate peanut butter, dried cranberries, and topped with some slivered almonds.
Don’t let your rice cakes be boring! Think outside the cake!
