Rice Cake Strawberry Almond Butter Cups


These Rice Cake Strawberry Almond Butter Cups are my current favorite snack or sweet treat. I look a spin on the TikTok viral chocolate peanut butter cup and swapped peanut butter for almond butter and added strawberries for extra sweetness ♥️🍓 Strawberries are currently in season (hello summer) and are extremely flavorful so they were the perfect addition to this recipe. Strawberries are also jam-packed with vitamins like folate, potassium, and Vitamin C necessary for immune, heart, and skin health.


This is quick and easy recipe is made with just a handful of whole foods ingredients and will satisfy any chocolate craving. To make top brown rice cakes with almond butter, melted dark chocolate, strawberry slices, shredded coconut, and hemp seeds for a boost of heart healthy omega-3s. Freeze for 20-30 minutes and enjoy!
