Rice krispy treats

image

Very similar to the millet slice recipe, but using rice puffs instead. 

Express version:

2.5 cups organic puffed brown rice
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 cup brown rice syrup

You can just use the above for minimum ingredients.

However for the luxury version I amended to this:

In a pot heat on a low heat:

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
2 T coconut oil
1/2 cup tahini

Add:
2.5 cups puffed brown rice
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped pumpkin seeds
Handful of chopped dried cranberries
1 tsp vanilla

Press into a slice tin.  Refridgerate for an hour.  Slice and keep in the freezer for instant snacks.

Delicious Buckwheat oat pancakes for 1

image

Screw it, I’m having pancakes for dinner!

This recipe is based off the buckwheat pancakes I posted a few days ago but in a single portion and its now gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, low fructose and NO eggs!!  And I prefer them!  Yummy!  And so easy to make.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup milk of your choice (I used ricemilk)
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp aluminium free baking powder
Pinch of himalayan salt
1 T coconut oil (melted)
1 chia egg (1 T chia meal in 3 T water..sit for 5 mins in fridge)
1-2 T brown rice syrup
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

Coconut oil to cook

Pour milk into oats and sit for 10 minutes.  Add rest of ingredients except xanthan gum and mix.  Sprinkle in xanthan gum and stir a few times quickly.  The xanthan gum is optional.  This recipe should work without it but haven’t tried it yet.

Cook until golden brown on either side and serve with your choice of berries, syrup and yoghurt.  I had mine with maple and brown rice syrup and fresh tart plums from the garden.

Heat coconut oil in pan until hot and make 3 big round pancakes.  The mixture will be thick and easy to shape.
