Recipe: Gluten-Free (and Vegetarian) Rice Krispie Treats

It’s like a right of passage when you are a kid.  Rice Krispies + Marshmallows = Rice Krispie Treats.  And you devour these because they are so chewy and gooey and made of snap, crackle, yum!  When I became a vegetarian, this was easy to modify.  When I had to go gluten-free, I could no longer enjoy Rice Krispies.  Then…they created Gluten-Free Rice Krispies and these treats were back on my menu.

  1. I’m so glad there are more mainstream products coming out that are gluten-free. The new Rice Krispies are awesome and a lot cheaper than the specialty brands. I can’t wait to try making Rice Krispie Treats again. Thanks! 🙂
