Stuck for healthy snack options for work or uni? We’ve got a bunch of healthy rice cake ideas for you to give a go this week – they’re super delicious and anything but boring! Kids will love them too.
Avocado Lime Mousse
Anything food related that involves avocados is going to be a good idea. Here we’ve done something a little different from the usual smashed avo, creating a sweet version to cure those 3pm sugar cravings. If straight avo is more your thing, we don’t blame you. Up your nutrients by adding a scatter of Organic Paleo Savoury Mix. Sweet or savoury, either way this is going to be satisfying.
Mash the avocado in a small bowl with a fork until smooth. Squeeze in lime juice, then add in the lime zest and rice malt syrup, stirring until combined. Leave your mousse to chill for a half hour or so to thicken. Spread over rice cakes and sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
With Hummus or Dips
In addition to the obvious avocado this basic hummus recipe is an absolute winner, and also this updated version of a kiwi classic, this onion dip (below). While hummus is great for topping off rice cakes, this curry hummus recipe also awesome for dipping vegetables or oven baked potato fries.
Peanut Butter with Chia Jam and Banana
This peanut butter and jam combo is also acceptable for breakfast, and a much healthier take on the traditional PB and Jelly. Use your fave nut or seed butter. We’ve used Smooth Peanut Butter here, but either almond butter or another nut or seed butter would taste awesome too.
This 3 ingredient chia jam takes all of 10 minutes to make and will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days. There’s no added sugar either. Chia seeds are the superhero here, also loaded with functional benefits.
Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds have a massive 11 grams of fibre, 4 grams of plant protein and 5 grams of omega fatty acids! Add chia seeds to your breakfast bowls and smoothies, or make chia puddings to cram extra goodness into your day.
Yoghurt with Banana Buckwheat and Maple
For those with a sweet tooth, this combination of coconut yoghurt, bananas and maple syrup is the goods. You’ll get some plant-based probiotics for your gut, plus a sustainable sugar hit to keep your energy levels up until dinner. For extra flavour and crunch, top your rice cakes off with some Paleo Crumble Cacao Spice and buckwheat.
