Homemade Rice Cakes Recipe

Lately, my daughters have been begging me to add some different snacks to their lunch boxes. After wracking my brain and remembering the brown rice cakes I did last year, I decided to recreate them and added a few touches.

I love these Homemade Rice Cakes because they’re low in calories, delicious, crunchy and super easy to make. Why buy them at the store when you can make them yourself? My favorite part is customizing them the way I like them.

As you can see, some are brown and some are more yellowish, that’s because I made a cinnamon sweet and a savory one.

The basic rice cake recipe is mild and kind of flavorless, just like the store bought ones, so I trump up the flavor by adding cheese, spices, or just cinnamon and Truvia (or any other sweetener).

The shape and size can also be customizable. With my brown rice cakes, I made then thinner and in a cute donut shape.

With these ones, I made them in a muffin tin for a more traditional shape. Next time, I’ll make them in a heart shape mold.

Just keep in mind that the size and shape will determine the baking time. Since these Homemade Rice Cakes were made using a muffin tin, it took about 45 minutes until the tops were browned and crispy on all sides.

All you need is a high-speed blender and a muffin tin, that’s it. Doesn’t get any easier than this!

I hope you can try this delicious Homemade Rice Cakes at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.

Made In Oklahoma offers recipes for snacks, finger foods

This Honey Glazed Sweet and Salty Snack Mix is made from Oklahoma ingredients for year-round snacking. [Provided by David McNeese]

February is packed with occasions for the family to gather and feast, some large and other intimate.

Super Bowl snacks were just the beginning of chip-and-dip season. Oscar Sunday is nigh, and March Madness looms, giving you the perfect opportunity to go deep with snacks and finger foods from the Made in Oklahoma Coalition.

Eggplant and Tomato Bruschetta is a take on caponata, a mixture of eggplant, onion and garlic cooked topped with Lovera’s tomato and basil sauce from Krebs. Buttered French bread is the perfect match for this spread, especially when topped with Lovera’s cheese and Scissortail Farms basil. If you need a super-quick appetizer, try Made in Oklahoma’s Sun-Dried Tomato Dip. Three ingredients and three minutes is literally all you need for this crowd-pleaser. Serve it with veggies or chips.

Everyone loves a party mix. But if you want to get everyone talking, try our Honey Glazed Sweet and Salty Mix. The perfect mix of savory and sweet comes together with Cheatwood’s Honey, Head Country seasoning and a mix of other MIO products.

All of these tasty finger foods would match well with local beer or a bottle of wine for tapas by the fire for Valentine's Day.

Speaking of keeping warm, try some Okie Ramen Bowl.

Ramen bowls are a delicious comfort food the whole family will enjoy once they tailor one to their taste buds. This version has the Asian flavors you expect with a sprinkle of Oklahoma flavor from Bar-S Bacon and J-M Mushrooms.

Whether you play these recipe for two or a crowd, expect to take a bow and don't forget to thank the Made in Oklahoma Coalition in your speech.

How to Make Vegan Rice Crispy Treats – Without Marshmallows

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

They’re the perfect choice for a hot day when you don’t want to turn on the oven, or any time you need a last-minute dessert to serve a crowd. Secretly healthy rice crispy treats made with just a few ingredients, no marshmallows, and NO baking required!

Also, here is a Nutella version that I posted way back in 2013: Nutella Rice Crispy Treats.

I made these vegan rice crispy treats for a Memorial Day barbecue yesterday, and the verdict was that they tasted “just like Scotcheroos, but without the butterscotch chips!” I’d actually never had a scotcheroo before, so of course I had to google them on my phone. And now I really want to get my hands on some vegan butterscotch chips. Or maybe make my own? Stay tuned!

How To Make Rice Crispy Treats

I’ve written the printable recipe below, mentioning to stir the nut butter, sweetener, vanilla, and salt together first. But if you just want to throw everything into a bowl at once like the video shows, that’s honestly fine too! Once you have a sticky mixture, you can make rice krispies treats balls by rolling them with your hands, or you can press into a lined 8࡮ pan and then freeze until firm.

The recipe calls for peanut butter instead of marshmallows, but if you’re allergic or are sending them in to a peanut-free classroom, it also works with sunflower butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or even coconut butter! Even if you do love peanut butter, it can be fun to try the recipe with different nut or seed butters, to find your favorite flavor combination.

The recipe makes 9-12 bars, but it can easily be doubled for a larger crowd.

If making a bigger recipe, just double of the ingredients and use a 9吉 pan. They go so fast that making a larger batch is never a bad idea!

Pecan Ginger Thin Rice Krispies Treat - Recipes

It's Girl Scout Cookie season so my husband bought a few boxes of cookies from work. The Samoa Cookies were the family favorite by far. I also have been seeing a lot of Samoa style treats coming out these last few weeks so of course I had to join in and try my hand at making something too. I am not the greatest baker so this no-bake rice krispies treat was my way of getting in on the Samoa action. Oh MY!! If you could hear my squeal when I got these all together and tasted it. Yes. they were that ooey-gooey good. I mean you can't go wrong with a basic rice krispies treat. but top it with the Samoa topping then drizzle and dunk it in chocolate. it's a winner. The hardest part of these cookies is waiting for everything to set so you can proceed to the next step. The easiest part is diving into and chomping one of these little beauties.

For the Rice Krispies:
6 1/2 cups rice cereal
10oz bag of mini marshmallows
4-5 Tbs butter or margarine

For the Chocolate Coating and Drizzle:
2 cups chocolate chips. (You can use milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate here.)
2-3 Tbs milk
extra 1 Tbs milk for Drizzle

For the Samoa Topping:
1 cup marshmallows
2 Tbs butter
3/4 of a (14oz) bag of Kraft chewy caramel candy ( about 30 candies)
pinch salt
2-3 cups coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

For Rice Krispies Layer:
On medium low heat, melt butter and marshmallows. Once fully melted add the rice krispies cereal and mix well. Pour mixture into a buttered baking dish and press down.

Tip: I used wax paper over the mixture so I could press down the with my hands. In a large pan on medium heat

For Samoa Layer:
On medium low heat, melt butter , caramels and marshmallows. Once melted add salt and pecans and coconut. Layer Samoa mixture over Rice Krispies. Allow to set for 1-2 hours. Once set cut into squares.

In a double boiler (heat proof bowl over pan with water) melt chocolate and milk.

Once fully melted and smooth dip the bottom of rice krispies squares into chocolate. Place upside down on wax or parchment paper.

Place in fridge to set chocolate quickly or allow to sit until chocolate sets. Once chocolate is set add another Tbs of milk to remaining melted chocolate to thin it out for drizzle. Drizzle chocolate over cut squares. I used a spoon to do this. Allow drizzle to set. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
