Healthy Rice Bubble Slice recipe

This healthy no bake slice recipe is really quick to prepare and is nut free for lunch boxes. It couldn’t be easier to make this Sugar Free, Nut Free slice which is lucky because it gets eaten fast too! All of the ingredients I got from my supermarket, a health food shop would also stock these products but I’ve got options if you can’t find them near you.

This is called a Healthy “Rice Bubble” slice recipe, however, I did not use Rice Bubbles as they have added sugar, I use puffed rice available in a large bag in the health section of most supermarkets. This product is 100% Brown Rice only. You could use a variety of puffed grains if your healthfood shop stocks others.

Ingredients

Puffed Rice – 3 cups – Make sure the only ingredient is rice (or brown rice), I got it from the health section of my supermarket

Sesame Seeds – 1/4 cup

Chia Seeds – 2 Tablespoons

Coconut Sweet Spread – 2/3 cup – this is the spiral foods brand from health shops or Woolworths Asian aisle) if you cant find this use 1/3 cup coconut oil and 1/3 cup liquid sweetener of choice (Coconut nectar, Rice Syrup etc)

Coconut Butter – 150g (I make my own by processing 400g desiccated coconut until it is liquid OR I buy creamed coconut (A hard block) from an asian supermarket OR Coconut Paste sachets by Spiral Foods from my supermarket asian section – ALL the same

Salt – A pinch

Instructions

Line a small slice tray with baking paper

Place Chia and Puffed rice in a large bowl

In a small saucepan (non stick if possible) gently toast the sesame seeds by stirring on a medium heat until just golden – best to watch carefully as they can burn fast if unattended

Add toasted Sesame to the large bowl with puffed Rice and Chia

In the same saucepan melt 2/3 cup Coconut Sweet Spread (this is the spiral foods brand from health shops or Woolworths Asian aisle) if you cant find this use 1/3 cup coconut oil and 1/3 cup liquid sweetener of choice (Coconut nectar, Rice Syrup etc)

Add only 100g of the 150g of Coconut butter, either homemade with desiccated coconut using the method in this recipe OR 2 sachets of Spiral foods Coconut paste (from Woolworths Asian aisle) OR use creamed coconut from an Asian grocer, all are the same thing, simply coconut flesh processed until liquid which sets hard, this is not coconut oil

Stir the coconut sweet spread and coconut butter until melted together

Pour warm coconut sauce over the dry mix and stir until well combined

Press the Sticky Rice bubbles firmly into your small lined slice tray using a another piece of baking paper on top so it doesn’t stick to your hands

Now melt in the same saucepan the final 50g of coconut butter with a pinch of salt

Pour and Spread liquid coconut over the top of the slice

Place in Fridge (or freezer) until firm

Once all set you can slice using a hot knife (Dip knife in a jug of hot water, dry with tea towel and use tea towel to press the knife through the slice)

Small squares work well

Store in an airtight container in fridge (or freezer if you are taking them in a lunch box)

This slice will set very firm when cool and remain quite in shape when out of the fridge

If taking to school make sure the lunch box is chilled or the slice may get a little bit melted and sticky
