  • Step 3 says add Almond Meal but there is no...

    Step 3 says add Almond Meal but there is no separate Almond Meal in the ingredients column, does it mean just the whizzed up almond and rice and should say add 'to' almond meal or should there be extra almond meal to add?

  • I tried these with Bobs Red

    I tried these with Bobs Red Mill all purpose flour and I would not recommend using that as they are very bitter, I would love to try these again and with the sundried tomatoes absolutely sounds perfect. Although are very filling and healthy and came out perfectly tmrc_emoticons.)

  • These are beautiful. I'll be

    These are beautiful. I'll be making them again. I added sundries tomatoes right at the end and put it on reverse speed 3 to mis in. I put some pesto on top halfway through cooking too. A great breakfast alternative. the only thing I'd do differently next time is I'll mill the rice for 2 mins as I found them gritty....and I'd add a little Himalayan salt.
