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!!!

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!!

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
