Rice Cake Magic Bars – Fit Foodie Finds

Say hello to a dessert we’re calling — Rice Cake Magic Bars! These bars came together combining our love for rice cakes, nut butter, and chocolate and we can’t wait for you to try them!

If you’re a rice cake lover, then these rice cake magic bars are going to blow your mind. They are similar to our Scotcheroo recipe but made with rice cakes instead of crispy rice cereal.

I was obsessed with rice cakes during my pregnancy, so this dessert is near and dear to my heart.

What You Need

  • Rice cakes: feel free to use any kind of rice cake (regular or brown).
  • Almond butter: we tested this recipe with creamy almond butter, but have also made these with peanut butter, too!
  • Honey: honey is important because it’s sticky! If you want to swap it, feel free to try brown rice syrup.
  • Magic shell: to make the hard shell topping you need chocolate chips and a little coconut oil.

Add-In Ideas

  • Chocolate chips
  • Shredded coconut
  • Nuts
  • Sprinkles

Add some protein!

We’ve got a similar recipe on our site, our Protein Scotcheroos, so we are confident that adding a little protein powder would be delicious in these!

We’re huge fans of storing these in the freezer. They will last longer and, er, out of site out of mind (so you don’t eat the whole pan!).

  1. After you’ve sliced your bars, transfer them into a gallon-size plastic bag.
  2. Remove as much air as possible and freeze for up to 3 months.
