Honestly, I was a  picky eater before I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, so I never tried a traditional Rice Krispies treat.  So why try a gluten free one?! When I read Babycakes Covers the Classics, I realized just how simple these are too make! Plus, they’re easy to wrap and bring on the go too.

Now, my friends tell me these don’t taste “gluten free.”  Instead, they taste like a  “gourmet” version of a Rice Krispies treat, such as when a restaurant tries to one-up a traditional dessert. My mom and I have worked to modify the portions from the Babycake’s recipe to add in chocolate chips.  Here’s our recipe if you’d like to give them a shot! 

Gourmet Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treats

Allergies: Free of gluten, dairy, egg, safflower, tapioca, rosemary, cinnamon, and annatto seed!

Ingredients: 

IMG_6646 – 7 oz. Gluten-Free Rice Crisp Cereal (Try Kellogg’s, Barbara’s Bakery, Nature’s Path, etc.)

– 1 tub Ricemellow Creme (10 oz.)

– 2 tbsp. Canola Oil or Melted Refined Coconut Oil, and enough to cover the baking pan!

– ¾ bag of Mini Chocolate Chips (I used Enjoy Life.)

– 1 tablespoon of Vanilla

– 1 teaspoon of Salt

Directions:

  1. Brush a baking pan with your  choice of canola or coconut oil.
  2. In a medium to large bowl, combine one tub of Ricemellow Creme,  2 tbsp. of canola or coconut oil, vanilla, and salt.  Combine by stirring with a rubber spatula.
  3. Slowly mix in the Rice Crisps and Mini Chocolate Chips.
  4. Scoop the mixture into the coated baking pan.  Even out the mixture.
  5. Cover with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  6. Cut out squares, rectangles, or shapes of your serving.
  7. If you’d like to take them on the go (or prevent yourself from eating too many at once!), you may individually wrap them.

Yields: 12-20 treats depending on the size!

IMG_6656Tips & Modifications:

  • If you don’t like chocolate chips use the whole box (10 oz.) of Rice Crisps instead!
  • For portion control, I cut my Rice Krispies treats into smaller shapes.
  • These work great as an allergy friendly school treat for a birthday as well!
  • With less allergies, you can always try out Kellogg’s Gluten Free Rice Krispies Recipe.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe on our Food Allergy Love Fest link-up! These look delish. I hadn’t heard of the Ricemellow Creme – can’t wait to get my hands on some! Hope you’ll come back and link up more of your recipes.

  2. I don’t bake treats because I have no portion control *covers face emoji* THESE LOOK AMAZING, add some peanut butter and I’d inhale the whole batch 🙂

    1. Ahhhh! Good thing these don’t involve baking! Just kidding, I just made these and have no portion control either! In fact, it was a miracle that I had enough left to fill the pan. They’re definitely going to be my go to dessert again this winter!

      And, with peanut butter, you might be able to use the whole box of GF Rice Krispies because they’ll have an easier time sticking! (And maybe less rice mellow too.) 🙂
