So not only is the husband not allowed to eat Gluten. He can no longer eat foods that contain corn of any kind including corn starch, corn syrup or Xantham Gum. Try finding foods that don’t contain any of those three ingredients. It’s almost impossible.
So when I came across a recipe for a sweet treat hubby can eat, I thought I’d try an old favourite and tweak the recipe a bit so it was hubby-friendly.
3 cups of Rice Krispies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup Agave syrup or honey
1/2 cup chocolate and/or butterscotch chips
Measure 3 cups of Rice Krispies and put them in a bowl.
Heat up the peanut butter and syrup in a pot until melted.
Pour mixture into bowl of Rice Krispies and mix.
Pour blended mixture into an 8 by 9 deep dish.
Put in refrigerator to cool and set.
Melt chocolate chips in a glass bowl over top of a pot of boiling water until melted and pourable.
Remove Rice Krispies from refrigerator and pour melted chocolate mixture over top of the squares and spread evenly until covered.
Place back into refrigerator until chocolate is cooled and hardened.
Serve with coffee for husband OR milk for the kiddos. A great twist on an already favourite treat!
