Granola Bars

(granola ingredients)
2 cups whole oats
1 cup gluten-free puffed rice cereal
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (roasted and salted)
1/2 cup ground oats (I use cuisinart to grind them)
1/2 cup brown sugar

(syrup ingredients)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 T butter, melted
1/2 t vanilla



Directions:

1. In large, heavy skillet (preferably with sides to prevent spillage) dry roast whole oats and almonds over medium heat, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes.
2. Add ground oats, sunflower seeds, and rice cereal,. Keep stirring for another 5-10 minutes.
3. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, continue to stir for another 5 minutes, until sugar is slightly melted, coating the granola
4. Remove from heat
5. In separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup brown sugar, corn syrup, condensed milk, butter and vanilla.
6. Pour syrup mixture over granola and mix through.
7. Pour mixture into greased 9x13 pan, I use wax paper coated with cooking spray to press the mixture flat.
8. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
9. Cool for 5-10 minutes, then cut into bars. Leave in pan until completely cool, then separate. Makes 16-20 bars (depending on size)

Enjoy!

OOOh! You've got to try this!!
Marshmallow/ Popcorn Treats! :P
They are like Rice Krispy treats, ...but with popcorn!
I don't have the recipe in front of me right now... but, you put butter in a Large pot, then melt Kraft Marshmallows (recipe on the bag for the rice krispy treats) in it, and when melted add salted homemade popcorn, stir, and don't burn yourself making sticky popcorn balls!
We color them for different holidays, too!

Enjoy!

Do any of you know any corn free candies? Almost all candies have "high fructose corn syrup" but I cant have corn, or dairy, or eggs, nuts, or anything else really. Are there any candies I can have?
Everything else sounds so yummy!!!

Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free as far as ingredients go, but there is always a chance of cross-contamination with cereals produced in the same factory with gluten cereals. I do buy the Malt-O-Meal brand Cocoa-Dino Bites and the Fruity-Dino Bites since they are also gluten-free by ingredients and the big bags are cheaper than the Pebbles boxes.

I haven't tried the marshmellow treats with them though, it seems they would be really sweet, since the cereal is already sweetened. I think I might try the popcorn ones...

God bless,
Mariann :)

I called Kraft about the cross contamination issue just last week. The lady on the phone gave me the usual Kraft response (which is fine) of they put everything clearly on the labels. I asked her if the product was on a dedicated line. She said that if it were not that too would be listed on the label. :) I feel very safe eating the pebbles!!
