Granola Bar Rice Krispie Treats

September 10, 2012 by  

granola rice krispie treat

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.

The Ingredients.

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

The Directions.

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.

Enjoy!

    How long do these keep? I’m trying to keep the kids away from store bought lunchsnacks and these (minus almonds) will be perfect~! :)

      Hi Angela, they don’t last very long in our house. :-) I did wrap squares in waxed paper and then a paper towel and kept them in the fridge for over a week. They got hard in the fridge, but then softened in the lunch boxes. I’d imagine they’d freeze well, although I haven’t had the opportunity to do so yet myself.

    Looks really good! What size is your mini marshmallow bag? I live in Greece so the packages are probably different! Can you give us the weight? Thanks so much!
