a fun new recipe to try
This recipe comes from Livestrong. Though I think it’s long since been deleted from their website.
But I think it’s a fun recipe, so I’ll keep it here on the blog.
The vanilla flavor is great.
It’s definitely not a bar treat, but more of a cereal or a granola. If you’re looking for more of a bar, check out my Loaded Rice Crispy Treats.
Try it for breakfast with almond milk. Think of it like granola.
It’s great over yogurt or fresh berries.
Think of it as a crumble, and you won’t be disappointed.
This Crumble makes a gluten-free version of fruit crisp made with crispy brown rice cereal.
There’s no wheat flour in this recipe, but there are oats so if you adhere to a strictly gluten-free diet be sure to use gluten-free oats.
Now, baking the protein powder does degrade some of the protein.
Personally, I believe that most people get plenty of protein (even vegans and vegetarians). So, I’m not worried about the amount of protein I consume and I’m not attempting to increase my intake.
Any light flavored or nutty flavored oil will work in this recipe.
almond oil is a fantastic choice. Walnut oil will be great as well. Avocado oil or grapeseed oil would also be great.
And, if you measure the oil first, and then the honey, the honey will just slide right out of the spoon, no muss no fuss.
If you can find a brown rice puffed cereal, it’ll bring out even more nutty flavor than the white rice version.
I think next time I’ll try baking it on a cookie sheet in one layer so that all gets nice and golden brown, though the bake time might need to be decreased.
