How to make Rice Cakes with Chocolate and Almond Butter
It might appear that these rice cakes with chocolate and almond butter take a long time to make or are time-consuming but they really come together quite easily and quickly. Here’s how to make this sweet treat:
Are rice cakes and almond butter good for you?
Yes! This sweet treat is filled with good-for-you carbs, fat, and protein. Eating them will fill you up and give you energy.
Is almond butter healthier than peanut butter?
Not really? Both nut butters do offer similar nutritional value. Many kinds of peanut butters on the market do contain added sugar, oil, and salt which would be less healthy. If you are sticking to natural kinds of nut butters then they’re both going to have nutritional advantages.
How to store the rice cakes with almond butter?
The best way to store the rice cakes with almond butter is to keep them in an air-tight container and place them in the fridge for up to a week.
Is this a healthy snack?
Yes! This sweet treat has carbs, fat, and protein. I love to eat one or two after a long run. This will refuel me and keep me going until meal time.

Rice Cakes with Chocolate and Almond Butter
Rice Cakes with Chocolate and Almond Butter is a quick and easy treat that everyone will love. Rice cakes are smothered in almond butter then dipped in dark vegan chocolate then chilled. This is an easy no-bake dessert or snack you can enjoy.
- 6 rice cakes
- 3 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
Fill a saucepan with water halfway and add to the stovetop over medium heat.
Place a bowl with the vegan chocolate chips and coconut oil over the saucepan. Stir the chocolate chips and coconut oil while allowing them to melt.
While the chocolate is melting, coat the rice cakes with a layer of almond butter. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place them in the freezer for a minute or two.
Remove the rice cakes from the freezer and top them with the melted chocolate mixture. Place them back on the parchment-lined baking sheet and place them back in the freezer. Allow the chocolate to harden. This should take 2 or 3 minutes.
Remove the rice cakes from the freezer and touch up any areas with chocolate. You can also add another coat of chocolate and sprinkle crushed almonds on top. This step is completely optional.
**See notes for customizations
You can replace the almond butter with peanut butter, cashew butter, or any of your favorite nut or seed butters.
Crush up your rice cakes and make them into rice cake bark!
Make sure your chocolate chips are vegan!
Adding more coconut oil will cause your chocolate to stay soft. Make sure you don’t add too much.
