How Do I Make gluten-free Rice Krispy Treats?
0

11 posts in this topic

I'm so bummed to find out that regular Rice Krispies have that flavoring in them. So what is a good gluten-free alternative? I really like that Erewhon Rice Twice stuff, but that has both the crispies and the puffed rice. I don't want the puffed rice, but it seems like that is easier to find. Where can I find just the crispy rice?

What about marshmallows? I found some kosher marshmallows that don't look like they have gluten in them. I've seen gluten-free marshmallows mentioned before, but I have no idea where to find them. I'd rather not make them from scratch, although I have before.

I buy Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice at Whole Foods. It's just like rice crispies. Just be careful to get the version that says gluten-free on the box. Erewhon makes another one that looks identical but has malt in it.

I don't know about marshmallows, but I bet someone else will! The Jet-Puffed ones are Kraft, though. I did a quick google and it looks like they are recommended by gluten-free websites. Just check the ingredients on the package you buy to be sure. If the ingredients on them are safe-looking, you would know they are okay since it's Kraft.

have you tried arrowhead mills puffed rice? the ingredients are "puffed whole grain brown rice"

they're not as krispy as kellog's rice krispies, but it's worth a try

funny that there was a post about this. i was planning on making them for the first time this weekend

i'll let you know how they are.

Campfire brand marshmallows are gluten-free

Then, you can use Cocoa Pebbles, or Fruity Pebbles...

MMMMMMM

As mentioned above, EnviroKids Koala Crisp, Pebles, or realy any of the gluten-free rice cearls will work.

I've used a mix of puffed quinoa / puffed amaranth.

So Kraft is generally good with labeling? I think I looked at the Jet-Puffed in the store, but that dang "natural flavoring" kept me from buying them.

this is what fraft says about their labeling regarding gluten

We realize that making accurate food choices is importantto people who follow a gluten-free diet. To help you makeappropriate food selections, ingredient statements of Kraft,Oscar Mayer and Nabisco products clearly identify anyproduct that contains a source of gluten. Please rememberto carefully read ingredient statements each time you makefood selections.

good luck

I eat Jet-puffed all the time. THe kraft marshmallows are safe, though I always recommend labels be read because we know how companies love to change things. Kraft will always state clearly wheat, barley rye or oats.

THe Erewhon Cripsy Brown rice is exactly like rice cripsy's, except for the being brown part. As someone said earlier, be careful because they make one that is "wheat-free" but has malt in it and they make one that is gluten free with no malt. Why?

My mom made superb "rice crispy" treats using this cereal and kraft marshmallows.

Inspired by you all, I made a pan of these today with Cocoa Pebbles and mini Jet-Puffed marshmallows. I had never seen a cocoa pebble before.

Anyway, I can assure you that this combination works just fine. I will eat way too many of these over the next 48 hours.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
