Kellogg’s has recently introduced a gluten-free cereal: Rice Krispies Brown Rice cereal. They left out the malted barley so now people living with gluten sensitivities or Celiac disease can enjoy this classic cereal! I don’t follow a gluten-free diet, but I still enjoyed the taste. Plus, they tasted pretty darn good in this dessert I made from a recipe at the Rice Krispies website.
The Gluten-Free Lunchbox Coconut Surprise were amazing! I think the coconut really made the flavour pop. I told my family they were like a Rice Krispies square only baked. They were gobbled up faster than you can say coconut!
I did change one small thing in the recipe from the site. It mentioned using wax paper. I tried making them that way and found the wax paper stuck to the edges of the squares. I preferred just greasing with butter and omitting the wax paper altogether.
