    Chocolatey Peanut-Butter Crispy Rice Treats (Gluten-Free)

    Ingredients:

    • 3 Tablespoons butter or butter substitute
    • 1 (10 oz) bag gluten-free marshmallows
    • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
    • 1/5 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup gluten-free peanut butter
    • 5 cups gluten free crispy rice cereal
    • 1 cup gluten-free chocolate chips (optional)
    1. Grease an 8×8 square glass pan.
    2. Melt the butter in a large pan or dutch oven over low heat. Add the marshmallows, vanilla, salt and peanut butter, stirring constantly until melted and smooth; this takes several minutes.
    3. Remove from heat and add cereal, stirring until well mixed. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and press it into the pan with a greased spatula (or you can place a piece of waxed paper over it and press down).
    4. If you want to add a chocolate coating on top of your crispy rice treats, place chocolate chips in small, microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until melted; stirring as needed.
    5. Spread melted chocolate over the bars and allow to set completely, about 2 hours at room temperature ( you can also place them in the refrigerator or freezer to speed up this process).
    6. Cut bars into squares and serve.

    Sounds great! Would like to know, though, calories per serving and breakdown of carbohydrates, fat, etc.

    Hi Allan,

     

    There are a variety of gluten-free rice cereal substitutes, so you will have to find one that works for you. I use the Enjoy Life Foods crunchy rice, but Rice Chex is gluten-free, and makes a great substitute, and I believe Barbara's makes a rice cereal free of gluten ingredients also.

  • About Me

    I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.

    This one is from the just-released WFGF Cookbook for Kids and Working Adults:
    Ingredients:
    ½ lb. lean ground beef
    1 teaspoon dried minced onion flakes
    1 lb. gluten-free processed cheese, cut into cubes
    ¼ cup milk

    Directions:

    A little sinful? Perhaps. But, I believe everyone needs a few desserts under their belt if for no other reason than to break out on a rainy day. Homemade chocolate pudding is a nostalgic must-have and naturally gluten-free. Superfine sugar isn’t crucial, but it’s smoother and melts easier. The vanilla gives the whipped cream a little boost and can be made a few hours ahead of time. The pudding can be made up to 1 day ahead, but both are best served fresh.
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ cups bittersweet chocolate chips
    2 egg yolks
    2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    ¼ teaspoon salt

    Fall mean apples and apples mean joy. Fresh homemade applesauce is one of my favorite ways to partake in that joy. This recipe is easy to make, and delicious. I put this applesauce on ice-cream, pancakes, waffles, peanut butter sandwiches, and many other things. I prefer to warm it up just a bit, but this easy homemade applesauce is either warm or chilled.
    Ingredients:
    5 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
    5 Gravenstein or Fuji apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
    1¼ cups unfiltered apple juice
    2-3 tablespoons brandy or cognac
    3 tablespoons butter
    4 tablespoons sugar
    Scant 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
