Granola Bar Rice Krispie Treats
September 10, 2012 by Stephanie O'Dea
This easy gluten free granola bar/Rice Krispies treat is our new favorite snack. There’s a perfect marriage between a wholesome granola bar and an ooey gooey Rice Krispies treat — you’ll love them.
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 package mini marshmallows, melted
3 cups gluten free toasted rice cereal (we use the new GF Rice Krispies in the yellow box)
1/4 cup ground flax meal (optional)
2 cups certified gluten free rolled oats
1 cup whole raw almonds
Make exactly how you would traditional Rice Krispies treats — the way the box directs. I used a large pot on the stove, but you can use the microwave, or a crockpot (or a Ninja!) — it’s your choice. Once the butter and marshmallows are melty, stir in the rest of the ingredients until well-incorporated.
Spread into a sprayed-with-cooking-spray 9 x 11 pyrex dish. Press down to firm up the bars (tip: I spray a mini plastic cutting board with cooking spray and press down using that— works better than waxed paper or your fingers).
Cool completely, then cut to size. I store in the refrigerator.
