Suzie’s Kamut Puffed Cakes

suze's kamut puffed cakes
What can thirty calories get you?  Usually not much, but if you’re eating a Suze’s Kamut Puffed Cake, you’re in business!  Rice cakes are a yummy way to feel satiated while dieting without adding a ton of calories to your daily intake.  I love rice cakes but some of the ones that I’ve tried are, admittedly, bland and tasteless.  Not so with Suzie’s Kamut Puffed Cakes! These delicious cakes are much better than your average, run-of-the-mill rice cake, and they have quickly become my brand of choice when choosing from the huge number of rice cakes on the market.

After all, how can I argue with thirty calories (and 0 weight watchers points!) of yummy goodness?  They are also completely fat free, that means no saturated, mono-saturated, poly-unsaturated, or trans-fats.  None at all.  But Suzie’s doesn’t stop there. There’s also no cholesterol or sodium (at least in the variety that I purchased) in these waistline-friendly snacks.  They do have a lightly salted version, however, for those of you who prefer a saltier taste. 

These crisp and light cakes are made with Kamut, which is a type of grain that is referred to as an “ancient” grain because it has been harvested around the world for thousands of years.  It has a higher content of amino acids than most commercial wheat.  The taste is a bit hard to describe, but if you have ever eaten Kashi puffed cereal (which I also love), then that comes close.
I usually eat these plain, but I’m not averse to adding a teaspoon of honey to them to give them a more “treat-like” taste.  Another way to dress them up is by adding a teaspoon of PB2 or natural peanut butter (a good one to try is Better ‘N Peanut Butter) to them.  These are also available in a variety that is sweetened lightly with agave. You can buy them from Whole Foods or online at Amazon.

I always eat Kamut Puff cereal and I love rice cakes every once and awhile, so I would most likely love the Kamut cakes..not sure I've seen them around here though!
