Gluten-Free Rice Krispie Ice Cream Bars

gluten-free-rice-krispie-ice-cream-bars


I was thinking about what kind of no-bake gluten free summer dessert I could make the other morning while having my tea.
Do you think about desserts in the morning too?
Funny thing was that I wasn’t expecting company but wanted to have a no-bake dessert on hand in case I did. Then I thought what would be even better if the no-bake dessert was also a frozen treat. This way I could keep it in the freezer for a few weeks and have a great dessert or cold treat on hand.
I was also feeling a little lazy and wanted something that I could make with ingredients I already had on hand and that wouldn’t require a lot of prep time.
What I came up with was a Gluten Free Rice Krispie ice cream bar.
Here in Canada Kellogg’s is making gluten free Rice Krispies and I love them. To me, they are exactly like the full gluten version.
I had a bag of marshmallows.
I had butter.
I had Chapman’s vanilla ice cream that is also gluten free.
I also had squares of dar chocolate that I could melt for a bit of a chocolate glaze.
I was ready.
This is a quick and easy recipe to make and I hope you give it a try. (If you do, comment below!)
It is delicious too!

Gluten-Free Rice Krispie Ice Cream Bars

Ingredients
  

  • 8 cups Kellogg’s Gluten Free Rice Krispies
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • Chapman’s vanilla gluten free ice cream
  • 5 oz of dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup butter

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan melt butter and mini marshmallows on low heat.
  • Stir until all is melted and well mixed.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl add the Rice Krispies.
  • Slowly add the melted marshmallow mixture and stir until combined.
  • Line 2 9×11 pans with parchment paper.
  • Spread the Rice Krispie mixture into pans.
  • Wetting your hands allows you to press the mixture down without getting all sticky.
  • You want your Rice Krispie bars to be about an inch thick.
  • Remember you are going to be using 2 with ice cream in between.
  • Remove ice cream from freezer and allow to unthaw for a few minutes.
  • Spread the ice cream over top of one of the pans of Rice Krispie squares.
  • Remove the other pan of squares and place on top of the ice cream.
  • Cover it all with Saran Wrap and place back in the freezer to harden.
  • Once the ice cream is hard you can remove the pan from the freezer and cut into squares. 
  • I cut mine and then placed the squares in a large rectangular container and back in the freezer.
  • You can also drizzle melted chocolate over some of the frozen squares.
  • Simply melt 5 oz of dark chocolate and 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over squares.
  • Place back in freezer to harden.
  • Enjoy
  • On a side note you can easily make these dairy free.

Raw Gluten-Free Date Bars

Raw Gluten Free Date Bars

Raw Gluten Free Date Bars

 
Before I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I had successfully lost weight following a physician monitored low carb diet. By following a low carb diet I was able to lose over 50 lbs. I was thrilled of course, relished in being thinner and felt great. My doctor was wonderful and worked with me closely.
Once I had reached my goal Dr. McKenna started to introduce wheat back into my diet, and that’s when things started spiraling out of control. Not only did I gain back the weight very quickly but my thyroid levels went wacky and I started feeling really sick.
I didn’t know at the time that 18 mos of living extreme low carb would clean out my gut, and once they decided to introduce wheat back into my diet I would become very ill. Good news is, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease within the year and was back to feeling good again. The weight? Well, it is still there and then some.
Now, that I have a great feel for gluten free cooking and baking, I am looking for ways to cut back on my carbs again. I will never go extreme low carb again- I don’t want to diet anymore. I’m simply looking for modifications in my gluten free lifestyle and trying to introduce more “grain free” options.
The Paleo/Primal diet is mentioned a lot in blogs now and I feel that  it’s a more moderate form of reducing carbs from your meals. I, however am not looking to add more animal meas into our meals. I want balance! I’m not going back to the old diet days of preparing a different meal for myself and my family. I think we all should be healthier together, no extremes.
So, here is a recipe to start going grain free. To me, this is a recipe that offers a granola bar type option. It is also raw, which keeps the healthy benefits of the nuts in the bars. I saw this recipe on civilizedcavemancooking.com and wanted to modify it to fit my needs. As, I have mentioned I have thyroid disease and Brazil nuts have a good amount of magnesium in them, which promotes thyroid function.
Brazil nuts are very high in calories and fat, but are known to lower LDL, increase HDL, are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids, are high in selenium and vitamin E. You only use 1/2 cup of brazil nuts in this recipe, which for me made 12 large bars.

Raw Gluten Free Date Bars

Ingredients
  

  • (adapted from the recipe Apple Pie Caveman Bars)
  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dried organic apples
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • In your food processor, add dates, brazil nuts and almonds.
  • Process(pulse) until mixture is chopped quite finely.
  • In a large bowl add chopped mixture, chopped apples, spices and melted coconut.
  • Mix well.
  • Line a 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper.
  • Add mixture to lined pan and flatten well.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to cool.
  • Remove from pan and slice into bars.
  • Bars can be individually wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in refrigerator as a great lunch snack or anytime you feel like a granola bar.

Gluten Free Chocolate Buckwheat Puff Squares


 

Do any of you remember puffwheat squares? I’m sure if I looked through childhood photos there would be pictures of my cousins and I eating them. I loved them as a kid and was craving a large chocolate square the other day. There is a problem though- Puffwheat!
Yep, wheat that is puffed. Can’t do it anymore! Do you have childhood treats that you can’t eat anymore? Have you tried to make them gluten free?
These buckwheat squares make a great treat for school lunches, however for myself as I no longer make school lunches it’s just a yummy treat! No excuse needed.
I found Sunrise Puffs an Organic Puffed Buckwheat at Amaranth Whole Foods here in Calgary.

I’ve also updated my recipe by using Bernard Callebaut cocoa. When I was a kid we used the canned cocoa for recipes but now that I’m a grown up, why not use really good chocolate?
If you’ve missed puffwheat squares I hope you give these buckwheat puffs a try and if you are new to buckwheat puffs just give the recipe a go. You wont regret it!
