Hey look! A recipe!

I know, right! (in my best Monica voice..)

Summer is always the crazy time and with that crazy time comes changes in the way I cook.  It also gives us more opportunities to hit the road and test out new eats. But, today is Monday and I have an extra special treat for you!

I am honored to have been accepted into a wonderful program and joining with hundreds of awesome foodie bloggers.

For today’s #meatlessmondy recipe we are going to start out with some low glycemic brown rice cakes. I purchase mine in the Asian food isle because they don’t have a lot of additives and/or extra sugar. Minimal processing and the cakes themselves are thinner than traditional rice cakes made by brands like Quaker. I find that even though they are thinner, they are not as airy. I like that.

This recipe is super simple.

On 2 brown rice cakes I used 1/2 tbsp of all natural peanut butter on each. I use all natural peanut butter for lower sugar and carb count. PB2 is a great alternative to all natural peanut butter if you are put off by the separation of the butter and oil. Best bet overall? Make your own 😉 I promise, it’s not as hard as it looks. You follow the same basic recipe as this vegan cheese.

Once the peanut butter was spread, I sliced up 1/3 of a banana. I put the other 2/3 in the freezer to use in a smoothie.

If you are a fan of honey, then by all means, drizzle a little honey. I love the combination of honey and peanut butter with banana. I was out of my raw honey….I need hubs to make a call to his aunt.

Now, for the other brown rice cake I added a handful of Graze seeds. You can use any type of seed like sunflower and pumpkin.

And there you have it. Super simple, low glycemic, protein-filled snack or lunch. They make a great dessert, too!

Are you a fan of rice or popcorn cakes? How do you doctor them up?

  1. We rarely go meatless, bu this sounds really good for those days after I pig out and need a healthier option for dinner.

  2. Yum! Now that is a good idea. My kids love rice cakes so we always have them on hand. Way a great way to change it up a little bit! I will try this!

  3. I love to eat rice cakes. I think adding the peanut butter and banana makes it taste better. We haven’t tried adding a drizzle of honey like you mentioned…I’ll have to do that next time.

    Thanks for linking up to the bloggers brags party. I’ve pinned your post to our group board. Hope to see you again this Monday!

    1. I like the brown rice cakes that I use. They are thinner with more air so they aren’t all cardboard tasting like some of the other brands on the market. So adding your own flavors to it really makes for a great snack because you aren’t trying to mask any flavors.
