[Peanut-Butter Rice Krispie Treats.]

I found this recipe on Pinterest, after having a craving for rice krispie treats and peanut butter.  This seemed like a good idea, although I didn't have enough corn syrup and they did fall apart because of that.  But man.  They're good ... 

Peanut-Butter Rice Krispie Treats


1cup sugar
1cup corn syrup
1cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups chocolate chips


- melt sugar and syrup until bubbly.  Remove from heat.
- stir in peanut butter.
- mix in rice krispies.
- pour into 9x13 and pat down.
- melt chocolate and pour over prepared pan.

[Gluten-Free Nutella Oat Cookies.]

Um.  These were a mistake ... I should never had made them.  But now I officially have a NEW cookie favourite in the house.  The boys haven't stopped asking for "just one more" since I pulled the last batch out of the oven.

They're crispy on the outside and yummy-chocolatey-chewy on the inside ... mmmm.  I adapted this recipe from one online that called for peanut-butter.  These are "peanut-free" - but not "nut-free".  

And yup.  THIS one is my own IPhone pic of them ... 

Gluten-Free Nutella Oat Cookies (makes about 4dozen)


1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla
1+1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup Nutella
3 cups rolled oats (gluten-free)
2 cups chopped white chocolate (or chocolate chips)


- preheat oven to 350F
- cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy.
- add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  mix.
- add Nutella, mix.
- add the oats and chocolate chunks, mix until combined.
- bake 12-15minutes, remove and let cool slightly before removing and letting cool on the racks.  Don't peek, or they'll crack with the cool air - pull them out when they're bubbling on the inside ...
