Let’s talk food trends!
One of the concepts that’s been all over social media, is these chocolate rice cakes! I lived through the rice cake era and while it’s hard to find an organic brand today, you’ll never see a chocolate option. There was one that came out years ago that was a healthier option, but you literally have to order them. So when the buzz was going around about this concept, I knew I had to try, and I’m just so glad I did!
What’s great about the brown rice cakes is that they actually pack fiber and nutrients. Combine those with a a nut butter and some chocolate and boom, you have a great dessert or snack. Since I’m all about tahini and there wasn’t this variation yet, I knew we had to do a vegan Salted Tahini Chocolate Rice Cake! If you’re not familiar with tahini, it’s an ingredient that just further enhances the flavor profile of chocolate, in the same way that coffee does. Whenever you put them together, you just have a winning combination. If you have tried it, now is your chance!
What’s great about this recipe? Everything! It’s quick, easy, can easily be made in bulk, refined sugar free, gluten free, kid friendly, nut free, it’s sweet, salty, crunchy, filling, perfect for any season, can be frozen and enjoyed later, the chocolate is sugar free and the salt just ties the flavors all together!
If you’re not sure whether you should also jump on the rice cake train, this is your sign! You have to try my new vegan Salted Tahini Chocolate Rice Cakes!
