Tips & Hints:
  • Brown rice puffs can be purchased from the health food aisle of most large supermarkets or from your local health food shop. Alternatively, substitute with Rice Bubbles.
  • This can be made 2 days in advance. Cover and refrigerate.
  • Store in refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days or freeze for 1 month.
  • Garnish with any finely crushed nut of choice. For a twist, add roasted salted peanuts to the top.
  • For a peanut-free version, substitute peanut butter with any nut butter of choice.
