Are you looking for something savory and fresh to eat while on the bike, a long run, or out on your next adventure? We've got a solution for you: rice cakes made from scratch.

Nothing beats real food to give your body what it needs to perform. Here's a simple recipe for Bacon Maple Almond Butter Rice Cakes (recipe contributed by Chef and Skratch Labs Taste Agent Lentine Alexis).

3 cups uncooked Calrose rice

4 cups water*

8 ounces cooked bacon or veggie bacon

1 cup warmed almond butter

Braggs Liquid Amino's to taste

1/4 cup rice vinegar

maple syrup to taste

salt to taste

optional: add olive oil to rice mixture to help hold everything together

Rinse rice until water runs clear

Cook rice per rice cooker instruction

Carefully (it's hot!) move rice into large bowl

Use rice paddle to fold in wet ingredients while rice is hot

Fold in dry ingredients or go the layer rice cake route (see video)

Taste! It is salty/sweet enough? Do the ingredient flavors come though? If it doesn't taste good, add what it's missing! These are not instructions as much as suggestions and framework.

Once it tastes good transfer to sheet pan and spread out to about 1.5 inches thick

Use rice paddle to cut into 3inx3in squares

Place 1 square onto Skratch paper and wrap it up!

Go burn some calories and earn your rice cakes!
