When you go gluten free deserts can be tough. And when you are also dairy, egg and soy free it gets tougher. We are also pineapple, citrus and cranberry free. (Although I do keep them around once in awhile so those of us who can eat them have that choice, I don't usually make anything with them.) Pies, cakes and crumbles all have to be tweaked, sometimes completely revamped. It gets complicated.
But there is one simple desert. A favorite treat using a cereal and a campfire staple. The original recipe had dairy in it but here is a just-as-simple tweaked version. A favorite treat tweaked to fit our dairy free life- simply.
|Who doesn't love Crispy Rice Treats?|
6 cups crisped rice cereal
1/4 cup coconut oil
In a large pot over medium or low heat (depending on your stove) melt the marshmallows with the coconut oil. Stirring constantly to keep the marshmallows from burning. When the marshmallows are all melted stir in the 6 cups of cereal. Spread on parchment paper or in a greased 9x13 pan to cool. Cut and enjoy.
For a chocolate version, I add a cup of Enjoy Life chocolate chips to the marshmallows as they melt. They are dairy and soy free, so they are perfect for us.
