Prototype Rice Cakes

Posted on May 23, 2012 by Skratch Labs | 0 Comments


Rice cakes.  They're the new black.  At least in the world of nutrition conscious athletes they are.  And while our cookbook The FEED Zone has recipes for a variety of delicious rice cakes to suit every pallete, Skratch Labs founder Allen Lim is always looking for the next thing.  Because just because you find a better way, doesn't meant there isn't something even better than that.  Enter Apple/Cinammon Rice Cakes.

Allen whipped up a batch of these at the shop a few weeks ago and they disappeared in a hurry. They're great for vegetarians or anyone who just wants a little variety in their rice cake arsenal.  The flavor is somewhere between apple pie and apple-cinammon oatmeal and we're pretty sure this new super-secret rice cake recipe isn't going to be a secret much longer.  And we're just fine with that.  Let us know what you think after you've tried them.
