Gluten-free rice crispy treats. Yes, they do exist!
Unfortunately, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies are not gluten-free, so you can’t make Rice Krispy Treats, but you can still make Rice Crispy Treats thanks to Erewhon brown rice cereal! (Rice Krispies is a trademarked brand owned by Kellogg’s).
Before I tell you my gluten-free hack for making rice crispy treats, I want to disclose that this post contains affiliate links to the products I talk about. All opinions are my own.
I use Erewhon cereal in my Rice Crispy Treats. This cereal is made from brown rice and is certified gluten-free. (You can get Erewhon rice cereals in cinnamon flavor too. I used the unflavored cereal for my Rice Crispy Treats.)
Last weekend, for my big 40th birthday celebration, I made gluten-free Rice Crispy Treats as one of the many desserts I served at the party.
I actually made two fun desserts with the brown rice cereal.
First, I made plain Rice Crispy Treats topped with a chocolate drizzle. Yum!
To make these, you follow the instructions to make the gluten-free Rice Crispy Treats below, and then, when they’re cooled, you drizzle melted chocolate on top and refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
Second, I made Rice Crispy Treats Sushi. Isn’t this beautiful and fun?!? I found inspiration for these beauties on Pinterest as I was searching for party dessert ideas.
In fact, there are so many fun things you can do with gluten-free Rice Crispy Treats. I’m so glad I didn’t have to give them up when I went gluten-free!
So, while you CANNOT eat Rice Krispie Treats because they are not gluten-free, you CAN eat Rice Crispy Treats using Erewhon brown rice cereal instead. You won’t notice a difference in taste or texture and you’ll still be able to enjoy this favorite and fun sweet treat!
