I decided to do a recipe today for rice cake bagels. I find it so hard to go to work without looking at the array of bagels and frosted doughnuts that call my name; sometimes I feel so left out from eating bagels that I just stare at them wanting to devour them all to myself. I know I should think about how great I will look this summer, but who really wants to feel left out from food (out of all things). I decided that I would create my own bagels; after making rice cake cereal it just seem rice cakes have endless possibilities. The best part if you sleep in and forgot to make breakfast, you can go to work and have a rice cake bagel that is only 35 calories; you can also spread cream cheese on them but I prefer strawberry yogurt.
Rice Cake Bagel:

I talk about rice cakes all the time. I am a lover of rice cakes they are so addicting, I could eat the whole bag mindlessly and since they are only 35 calories I don’t feel the guilt about pigging out. I know after my rice cake cereal recipe, I have decided to get a little more creative with rice cakes; sometimes just eating plain rice cakes can be very boring even photographing them seems boring as well( but they are appetizing to look at). If you can spice up and make a huge impact on the flavor, of any bland food and still keep the calories low. I will be ready to chow down any day of the week (guilt free).
The texture of this cereal reminds me of oatmeal with a bit of a crunch, rice cake cereal is one of my favorite eats. When I am sick of oatmeal and toast I will usually make it as a cereal in the morning. It also makes a wonderful snack because I know most of us always have a package of rice cakes on hand.
I used soy milk today, but it works great with any milk I have used almond and coconut milk in the past. The toppings you can put on the cereal are unlimited; I usually stick to my favorites, peanut butter, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and banana. If you have topping that you enjoy you should use it, rice cake cereal is so easy and versatile any topping is great in my book. 🙂
