frequently asked questions
i suggest using any plain rice cake. my favorite to use are the trader joe's rice cake thins (they come in a square shape) because they break apart into nice chunks and aren't too thick.
you can add any nut, seeds, dried fruits, chocolate or nut butters to incorporate into the rice cake chunks before baking.
store the cereal in a sealed ziploc bag for up to 5 days
