How Do I Make gluten-free Rice Krispy Treats?

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.

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.

    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.  
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
