puffed grain and miso cookies

I buy rice cakes on the regular and usually use them as a vehicle for hummus, nut butter or smashed avo, but it had never really occurred to me that I could make my own version, with add-ins so tasty I could enjoy them just on their own. To be fair, these are Puffed Grain and Miso Cookies, not merely rice cakes, and they have a lot going on, even though they come together in a snap once you have all the ingredients. I was sort of hemming and hawing about having to buy both a bag of puffed rice and a bag of puffed barley, as the recipe calls for…then I spotted a box of Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs, decided seven grains would be even better than two, and went with that instead. I stirred in sesame seeds, cashews (instead of peanuts) and a mix of dries berries and raisins, along with the miso, brown rice syrup and sesame and olive oils. They bake in muffin cups into light, crispy-chewy, sweet-salty little rounds. No bland or stale rice cakes here!

  1. Good call on the 7 grain cereal. I have puffed rice so might just go with that.

  2. These look so great! I have a giant bag of Rice Krispies that I need to use up so mine will prob be less exciting. I’m interested to make them tho!

  3. Kashi is great idea. I ended up buying just a bag of puffed rice. I am glad that you liked these, I am looking forward to making them.
