Marshmallow Rice Cereal Treat (Gluten-Free, Peanut-Free)

Print

To truly EMBODY Wellness, you need to indulge sometimes.  We believe in enjoying, celebrating and relaxing. This is possible, while also accomplishing goals and looking and feeling your best when you make great choices for your body most of the time.  Then, when a craving strikes, party rolls along or special dinner is on your calendar, you can loosen up and just enjoy.

We also believe in upgrading whenever possible! That’s why, when I kept wanting homemade rice crispy treats (childhood memory?!), I gave in and turned it into a fun activity with my kids.

Trust me, they are still a treat and not a healthy snack, but I felt comfortable indulging and letting my kids do the same!

This was my first time making marshmallow rice treats because I grew up kosher! I’m not sure I totally succeeded, but they were delicious! The kids measured and poured and launched the marshmallows into the pot (often unsuccessfully) from a few feet away in fear of the fire! We had as much fun making this new cookie as we did eating them! The kids also pressed them to flat into the Pyrex and then chose shapes to cut the bars into. The hardest part was not eating them all before 8 am (we wake up early!)

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Making a healthier version of your favorite junk food is a great way to satisfy cravings if nothing else will do the trick. Also, by making them yourself you will be able to modify the number of unhealthy preservatives and hard-to-pronounce ingredients which is ideal if feeding them to your kids or even yourself! However, they are still a treat, so be sure to eat them in moderation.
