Yes, it is possible to learn Sugar Free Rice Krispie Treats
For me, it was a happy day when I figured it all out as well.
Sugar Free Rice Krispie Treats
I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter and I had a late night craving for Rice Krispie treats. Naturally, with my luck, the stores were all closed and I could not get any of the ingredients that I needed to make some. As a result, I not only learned how to appreciate the better store hours of today. I learned how to respect this tasty treat as well.
When was the last time that you ate a cereal treat such as Rice Krispie Treat?
They really are a classic. Every kid has probably had one at one time or another. We love that they are easy to make and easy to eat.
However, as much as we love any kind of a cereal treat, we have to acknowledge that they can be loaded with sugar.
Not only can there be sugar in the cereal, there is sugar in the marshmallow as well. Hence, this is a treat that anyone watching their sugar intake cannot enjoy all of the time. Hence, we need to find a way to enjoy this treat without all of the sugar.
Cutting the sugar from a cereal treat is not as hard as you may thing it is.
For me, it all started when I stumbled upon the most important ingredient that is needed (besides the cereal).
It all started when I found these Sugar Free and Gluten Free Marshmallow on Amazon. I ordered them on a Tuesday and I received them two days later.
To be honest, they taste even better than the real marshmallow.
They are not as sugary sweet as the real marshmallow. Also, they are not sticky on the fingers as well. The sugary taste and the sticking to the fingers were the things that I really never loved about marshmallows in the first place. I will mention at this time that these marshmallows are sweetened with malitol and thus, you should not eat too many in one sitting as a result.
Yes, the Sugar Free and Gluten Free Marshmallow does exist!
As we all know, the marshmallow is not the only source of sugar in a cereal treat.
Toasted rice cereal can have sugar in it as well. While you could use any cereal to make a cereal treat, it is important to find one with no or little sugar in it to keep this as close to no sugar as possible.
I found some good alternatives on the internet.
Regular Rice Krispie Cereal has about 4 grams of sugar per serving. However,Rice Krispie Cereal is also available in Gluten Free (1 gram of sugar) which you can buy on Amazon. Another alternative would be to find a low carb cereal. You can find Low carb cereal on Amazon.
The Recipe for How to Make Sugar Free Rice Krispie Treats
I am so excited that I found a sugar free marshmallow. Especially one that bakes and acts like a real sugared marshmallow. By the way, did you know that you can make a sugar free copycat Nutella as well?
What you will need to make this recipe.
- Butter or margarine- 1 1/2 tablespoons.
- Sugar Free Marshmallows- 2 Bags (5.4 oz total)
- Cereal- 3 cups (see post for choices).
- Vanilla Extract- 1 teaspoon.
How to make this.
- Prep a 6 X 6, or similar sized, pan for nonstick. I use parchment paper or wax paper as these make the end product easier to serve and clean up a lot easier. The original recipe calls for using nonstick spray on the pan. Set this aside while you work.
- In a saucepan on low heat, melt your butter.
- When the butter has melted, you can add your marshmallows to the pan and continue to cook. Stir your marshmallows as the melt and do not allow them to overcook.
- After the marshmallows have melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in your vanilla extract. Then stir in the cereal Be sure to mix well.
- Finally, press your marshmallow and cereal mixture into the pan. I use a soft spatula to do this. If you want to easily cut and serve, do what I do. I lift the treats out of the pan using the parchment paper.
