Peanut Butter Rice Cakes
Okayyyy… these are reminiscent of several popular chocolate PB candy bars & candies! The PB + Chocolate combo combined with the crunchy texture of the Salted Brown Rice Cakes is absolutely beyond perfect and satisfying. Such a super simple homemade treat that delivers big time on flavor and overall satisfaction when you’re craving a treat!
This is a fun one to make with the kids! Let them mix things up and create their own variations!
➡️When shopping for ingredients:
Look for a higher percentage of cacao for the chocolate chips, and always read the ingredients.
Lots of questions about chocolate brands – I like to visit the specialty (nicer) chocolate section at the stores and find a really high quality, (often organic) dark chocolate bar on SALE – so
I’m always trying something different because I shop the sales.
A high-quality dark chocolate bar works great too! I’ll often find a beautiful organic dark chocolate bar on sale, then chop it up to use for things like this.
I like to buy the highest quality I can find when it’s on SALE! I’m always keeping an eye out for a good deal, and will often stock up when a high-quality product is on special.
Use any dark chocolate chips of your choice: the higher cacao percentage = more health benefits.
If you’re looking to keep sugars lower; try using Lily’s brand chocolate that is sweetened with stevia.
When shopping for peanut butter I try to make sure peanuts and salt are the only ingredients. Especially steer clear of peanut butter with added oils and lots of added sugar.
- 4 sea salted organic brown rice cakes
- 4 Tbsps crunchy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup melted dark chocolate
- a handful of peanuts, coarsely chopped – optional
Spread the top of each rice cake with one tablespoon of peanut butter and lay them on a sheet pan.
Freeze for about 15 minutes while you melt your chocolate chips.
Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds.
Next, spoon over some melted chocolate to top the peanut butter as shown.
Sprinkle with peanuts if desired and freeze for 5 more minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
