Sweet Rice Muffins


Here is recipe you can use if you have leftover rice. I had a lot of Forbidden Rice left from last night's pudding. I decided to make rice muffins. Once again, I searched for the recipe and then created my own based on all the recipes I found. I wasn't sure what to expect on my first bite, but I will tell you that my taste buds were in heaven! I will definitely be making these again. They were so sweet and moist, and they almost had a rice pudding taste! I know what I will be having for breakfast the next couple of days!! Next time, I am going to add some raisins!!!

Yum! I've never had a rice muffin before, but it sounds like a more solid version of rice pudding!

rice muffins?

Sounds like a good idea. I have some bulgar wheat I bought over the weekend and have been looking for a fun way to eat it. Do you think this recipe will work with bulgar wheat as well?

Rice muffins? Sounds VERY interesting! I was planning on rice as a side at dinner tonight so I think I'll make a little extra and try these out!
