Rice Cakes w/ Nut Butter & Banana

This simple, yummy breakfast is perfect for when you have about 1 minute to make breakfast and get out the door. I also like this breakfast before hiking, or when traveling or camping.



Grain Serving

  • 1 oz rice cakes (about 1 and a half)

Protein Serving

  • 2 ozย nut butter (I like Trader Joes peanut butter with chia and flax seeds!)

Fruit Serving

  • 1 banana

Maintenance Modifications

  • Grain Additions:ย Increase rice cakes to 2 rices cakes or 1.5 oz.
  • Protein Additions:ย Add more nut butter or nuts to reach 4 oz.

A word of caution: Nut butter is a heavier food choice and if you are in the weight loss phase, don’t eat this too often or it may slow weight loss. I eat this once or twice a week with no issues.

  1. Hi Katie, Are we allowed to have rice cakes on the weightloss phase of BLE. I’m in Highland House and am looking at your ideas. Tracy

    • Yep! They count as a grain Tracy, so only for breakfast during the weight loss phase. You can have 1 oz, which is about 1 and a half of the normal big round rice cakes.

  2. I have found thin rice cakes, and four equal 1 oz. this is filling and lots of chewing. Which we need to feel full.
