Fig and Honey Rice Cakes

October 08, 2015

This rice cake recipe is a gluten-free spin on the classic fig cookies that many of us grew up eating. They make a sweet portable snack, but because of the excellent fiber in the dried fruit, they work even better as a snack following a workout or between meals. If figs aren’t your favorite, try raisins, apricots, craisins or dates instead. It takes about 25-30 minutes to make a batch of 10 rice cakes here.

Fig and Honey Rice Cakes
2 cups uncooked calrose rice or other medium-grain “sticky” rice

1 1/2 Cups Water

1 Cup toasted pecans

1 cup chopped dried figs

2 tablespoons honey

Brown Sugar (optional)

Combine rice and water in a rice cooker

To toast the nuts: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place the pecans on a baking sheet and toast 8-10 minutes. Stirring after 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked rice, pecans and figs. Add the honey and stir thoroughly. Add more honey to taste, if desired.

Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch square pan to about 1 1/2-inch thickness and sprinkle with brown sugar, if desired.

Cut and wrap the individual cakes with Skratch Paper! Enjoy!
