Cinnamon & Almond Rice Bubble Slice

Bliss balls and raw vegan slices are wholesome and nutritious, but they are also quite expensive to make.  So far my family haven’t embraced my efforts at making squeaky “clean” treats, so I have dialled back quite a bit on the “superfood” additions.

Cinnamon & Almond Rice Bubble Slice
