Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Rice Pudding

We converted one of our rice pudding recipes into a delicious vegan version that everyone will enjoy. Brown rice, coconut milk, honey and vegan chocolate chips, along with bananas and pecans, create a divine, naturally-sweet dessert. Swap the honey for maple syrup for a new, warm and delicious breakfast option. Leftovers? Great, as it’s a tasty cold snack, too. (Note: the vegan version will render a darker colour than the photographed recipe due to the brown rice.)
