I have a gluten allergy and that causes me to already have a restricted diet, but leave it to a one month old to make things worse. My newest little bundle of joy has colic and we have found that cutting dairy out of my diet has helped cut down the fussiness and eliminated the projectile vomiting. So poor me now has to be gluten free, dairy free, and avoid chocolate, AND peanut butter (those foods seem to trigger him spitting up as well). Did I mention that I have a sweet tooth? Yeah try finding a dessert that doesn’t contain any of those things…………it’s Rice Krispy Treats.
So I have decided to up my Rice Krispy making game. No pathetic back of the box recipe here. No no no, instead we have super big, super crunchy, super gooey deliciousness! Here we go, THE RECIPE! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Dairy Free Rice Krispy Treats
8 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
4 Tbs Coconut Oil (if you do not care about dairy you can substitute butter)
2 Bags Mini Marshmallows
1 cup Mix In of Choice — (this could seriously be anything. I chose to do Lucky Charms marshmallows but some other great ideas are chocolate chips, flaked coconut, chia seeds, nuts, candy pieces, sprinkles, or dried fruit)
Measure out your cereal in a large bowl. Add half of one of the marshmallow bags and stir to combine then set aside. (this step is so you get those delicious chunks of marshmallow in the Treats)
In a Pot on the stove melt your coconut oil and add the remaining bag and a half of the marshmallows. Stir on medium heat till you have melted marshmallow goo with no lumps.
Pour over your cereal and stir till evenly coated. After you have stirred for about 1 minute you can add in your mix ins and continue to stir till everything is evenly coated.
Pour the gooey mixture into a greased 9×13 pan. Put plastic wrap around the bottom of a cup and use it to smooth the mixture flat into the pan.
Place in the fridge for 20 minutes till set and easy to cut. Cut and enjoy!!
