rice cakes: a gluten-free snacker’s dream

Before I started trying to eat gluten-free, I hadn’t had a rice cake since elementary school. But why not?! They’re cheap, versatile, and while not a nutritional super-food, they’re definitely not a calorie bomb (not that I count calories anyway).

They’re a fantastic base for toppings because they don’t have an overwhelming flavor. Here are a few ideas for toppings:

  • Cream cheese {my breakfast staple} with or without cucumber
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Peanut or almond butter and banana {via Carlee}
  • Pizza-style {via Quaker Oats; a good alternative to my gluten-free “chicken parm“}
  • Hummus and turkey
  • Avocado, havarti, and tomato slices
  • Tuna salad
  • Seven layer Mexican dip
  • Roasted red pepper or Romescospread
  • Almond butter and shredded coconut
  • Honey and peanut butter
