What Are Rice Cakes?

Rice cakes are a snack made from puffed rice pressed together into a circular shape. They are shelf-stable, crunchy and versatile. Rice cakes come in a variety of flavors, but watch for sugar and sodium content. We recommend using brown rice cakes or multigrain rice cakes.

Are Rice Cakes Healthy?

Yes, rice cakes are a healthy snack! Rice cakes are low in calories and sodium, and they're gluten-free, nut-free and soy-free. To make the most of your rice cakes, add toppings packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats.

Choosing Your Peanut Butter

There are many varieties of peanut butter to choose from at the supermarket. We recommend using natural peanut butter, which is made with just peanuts and sometimes a little salt. Read more about which peanut butter is best.

Can I Swap in a Different Nut Butter?

Absolutely! We recommend using nut butters made with just nuts and salt (or no salt).

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
