Healthy Baked Coconut Rice Pudding Cups (vegan, gluten-free}

 

These pucks are a variation of a post from earlier today: Coconut Brown Rice Pudding. It’s one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make (i.e., dump in slow cooker and skedaddle for several hours until done).

The rice pudding also happens to be a smashing-good (and healthy) breakfast or snack. So, because I am obsessive compulsive about making everything in a muffin tin lately, I had to turn it (or, at least part of it) into a baked, portable rice pudding cup.

Everyone needs rice pudding on the go, right? Right!

 

The transformation took a few tries failures, but success eventually came with an additional coconut component: flour. I tried a psyllium egg and a flax egg, but, although both held the pucks together, the result was too sticky and fragile.

The solution? Two tablespoons of super-absorbent coconut flour (plus the psyllium) rendered perfect pucks: sturdy enough to transport, minimally sticky, and arguably even more delicious than the pudding alone.

Just think of all of the creative ways you can vary these lovelies, with different fruits, spices, or seeds. Holy yum. Enjoy!
