Healthy Kitchenability: 3 Gluten Free Recipes

Gluten Free Rice Krispie TreatsDid you know that January 20 is National Granola Bar Day? In honor of the occasion, I’m including one of my granola bar recipes below, along with two other gluten free treats!

My best friend has a lot of food allergies and is restricted from eating certain things like dairy, soy, and wheat — to name a few. So, since she’s so limited, we decided to make our own granola bars, fruit roll-ups and rice krispie treats — all made from ingredients she can eat.

Do you have any tasty gluten-free recipes to share? I’d love to hear about some of your faves in the comments section below.

1. Homemade Granola Bars

We mixed together Cashew butter, honey, agave nectar, flax seed, gluten-free oats, hemp seeds, chia seeds and frozen blueberries. Once all mixed, we formed into little log shapes and froze them over night. Then, in the morning, we placed them in the oven at 150 degrees F for about 45 minutes to one hour —  they were great!

2. Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups

These didn’t turn out as well as we’d hoped, but we did add too much fruit. They were a tad too tart, but had a good consistency. We had to puree and boil the fruit. Then let it sit in the oven at 17o degrees F for an hour, then we placed them in a warm place to dry out for about 5 hours. 

3. Soy Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free Rice Krispie Treats

Now these, on the other hand, turned out amazing! I used gluten-free marshmallows, soy-free Earth Balance butter, brown rice rice krispies, and soy-free and dairy-free chocolate.  I used a standard rice krispie recipe and just used my alternative ingredients.

TASTY!
