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.

I also would like a carb breakdown if possible, as our son has celiac disease and diabetes.

Thought cyrex is very similar to a celiac testing panel? Mostly I was just curious if IGG test results are worth anything as an indicator. I've read they can just indicate that you're actually tolerate or have recent eaten the foods (I was prior to the test).

The other alternative is just eliminating it from your diet and seeing if you do end up feeling better. There?s a chance your not celiacs and could be intolerant which is just as bad for reactions but can?t be proven with the celiac testing. It depends on how bad you would feel eating it every ...

I am the only one in my immediate family (out of my 3 siblings and both parents) to have celiacs even thought I inherited the autoimmune thyroid issues from my parents, but have a second cousin who was diagnosed 8 years ago and that?s it.

One other thought to consider is other food allergies/intolerances you may have that you didn?t know of before that could be causing this change. Is there any food that you may have added in or increased the frequency of eating since removing gluten from your diet? I know this has happened with...

Hey I?m new here too- but totally get what your talking about! I have some friends that claim to be ?gluten free? but if they are hungry will eat a piece of bread and it can be frustrating to have them later complain to you about how hard it is to eat a gluten-free diet!
