It’s hard to believe, but it’s already back-to-school time in some parts of the US. Make sure that your after-school snacks pack a powerful nutrition punch! We LOVE these adorable Rice Cake Doodles, recipe courtesy of California Raisins.
10 multi-grain rice cakes
10 tablespoons peanut butter or cream cheese (1 tablespoon per rice cake)
2 cups California raisins
10 cups shredded cheese (1 tablespoon per rice cake)
1-1/2 cup various vegetables (broccoli, radishes, zucchini, carrots, celery)
1/4 cup various nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, seeds)
Different shaped pretzels, gold fish, sesame snacks; for decoration
Use the rice cakes as the base for the doodle, and use the peanut butter or cream cheese as the glue. Be artistic and enjoy your yummy creation! Then, eat it all up to grow tall and strong.
