Super Tasty Chocolate Strawberry NO BAKE rice Krispie Treats BITES! Vegan Gluten Free Rice Krispie treats in BITE form and actually healthy for you. Easy to make and a great snack or breakfast bite for kids and adults!
Can I let you in a on a funny fact? Um, grew up with three brothers and we were all cereal ADDICTS. My middle brother would grab a large salad serving bowl (think 10 cups) and fill it with rice Krispies. 1o CUPS!!!! And yet he never gained a pound. Classic male, right? I, on the hand, had an obsession with rice krispies because one —> that “POP” sound, and two, I loved making marshmallow rice krispie treats! Yep, classic female. Always wanted to make something more complicated. Haha. Kidding. Kinda. Well, today not much has changed. My brothers still love their cereal (especially my middle brother) and I am still thinking of ways to make something “more” out of something so simple like rice krispies.
But I will tell you the one thing that really HAS changed since my youth. The fact that I am a health and GLUTEN FREE food entrepreneur. The fact that I can sit here and share No bake Healthy Bites (aka gluten free snack bites) recipes with ALL of YOU each month. The fact that I see making wonderful nourishing gluten free meal for my family and others as a privilege and it gives me complete JOY! The fact that I am FACING my FEARS every day. The fact that I am EXTREMELY thankful for the road God has put me on (despite the rocky terrain). The fact that I have whole new PERSPECTIVE on life.
And it’s a good thing, because if my childhood brain still were around today, we’d all be living off rice krispie treats for dinner and I probably wouldn’t share half of the batch… just sayin.
Today’s Chocolate strawberry gluten free NO BAKE Rice Krispie Treats Bite recipe is an ODE to all my childhood and how far we’ve come with health, life, dreams, and more!
It’s also a chance for me to give back to YOU ALL for being such amazing gluten free entrepreneur supporters!
But before I jump that topic, let’s discuss this gluten free no bake rice krispie treats goodness, mmm k?
It’s made with gluten free and vegan LOVE GROWN FOODS cocoa comet crispies and the beautiful red strawberry color is ALL NATURAL from freeze dried strawberries. Both equally addicting and “Krispie” errr… crunchy? Haha —> see what I did there? Cotter Crunch Y’all!
Now all you really need to do is blend up the ingredients and combine with nut butter/honey or maple syrup. Of course, this was so SIMPLE using my BRAND SPANKIN NEW Cuisinart 8 cup Food Processor.
Ya’ll, this food process is amazing! I couldn’t believe how durable yet light (in weight) it is! I also can’t believe how many recipes they have using this handy dandy tool. Yep, it sure does make a tasty no bake rice krispie treats bite. Or 3 dozen of them!
Nutrition per bite. So about 4 would be equivalent to a “bar”
That being said, this gluten free rice krispie treats bite is a recipe that you will want to make over and over again. Those type of “repeat” recipes really come down to two things. Having the right healthy ingredients and the right handy kitchen tools (more on that below).
