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)

(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!!!

So if cocoa pebbles are gluten free are fruity pebbles? and are we sure cocoa pebbles are in fact gluten-free?..... Thanks

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!!

    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
