This is another great after-school snack that is quick to prepare and easy to eat on the go, and it has the added benefit of being gluten-free. I labeled this snack rice cakes, but my picture displays corn thins. There are many different types of rice cakes on the market, but after much experimentation our family is a fan of the thin version of rice cakes. This particular company makes several different kinds, our favorite being the multi-grain thins. Our local health food store only currently carries the corn line, though, and we love it!
Obviously you could use any nut butter or another spread of your liking. We make our own nut butter in our Vitamix or grind it at the health food store. If you choose to buy it at a conventional grocery store, make sure to choose one that has only nuts as the ingredient. Unfortunately, many nut butters contain added salt, oils, and sugars.
