Fun and healthy rice cakes 

Fun and healthy rice cakes 

Here are fun and simple idea for a snack or dessert.These rice cakes are gluten dairy and egg free. Low GI and low sugar. With all the raw foods, spicy food, junk food and juices we eat these days our digestive tract is becoming more inflamed than ever!

Remember when you have food poisoning you have to eat healing and digestible foods such as rice veggies, roots and broth. A similar diet to baby food is also suitable.

All over Asia white sticky rice is eaten all day long and can heal and bind for the gut to cause less future issues.

I made four different types

  • Coconut (sweet)
  • Pandan (neutral)
  • Mushroom (savoury)
  • Plain rolled in almonds and mango (slightly sweet)

Ingredients (for all four versions)

  • Sesame oil, coconut oil
  • Rice mold / cling film
  • Organic Goji berries
