The original is a nod to Rice Krispies Treats with the addition of a few flavors and the deletion of gluten. I wanted to keep with the gluten-free theme since I'm on that kind of kick this week, but I wanted to amp it up even more.
Man, I always forget how much I love cereal. I'm a huge breakfast eater. Huge. But I really just never think of cereal. When I do, it's heavy, hearty, fatty goodness like peanut butter or pumpkin seed granola or eggs and avocados (holy yum, Batman). But there are so many great alternatives out there. I'm more prone to eating cereal dry, by the handful, for a snack. Like, instead of potato chips.
Anyway, you can use any cereal you want in this recipe. I chose gluten free Vanilla Chex. They are so freaking good. You'll see in the photos that I did crush them up a bit (not into a powder, but just so they'd be a bit smaller and compact) before I measured them out. The other sorta odd thing I did? I froze these. I don't know why, but I love them just out of the freezer, just barely thawed a little. Read on for the recipe and pics.
