Gluten Free Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats | Sarah, Baking Gluten Free

Need a treat that doesn't require turning on the oven, that the kids love too? These rice krispie treats are easy and delicious.

Happy Memorial Day! I’m sharing a quick, easy treat with you, perfect for this holiday weekend. As much as I love the classic rice krispie treats, I like the idea of changing the flavor to something fun and fruity. I had a bag of freeze-dried strawberries from Trader Joe’s in the pantry. Mixed them in and couldn’t stop licking the bowl. So yummy!

Rice krispie treats are a favorite in our house. When this mom doesn’t feel like turning on the oven (especially in the hot summer months) this is our go-to dessert. The kids like to help too. Are you a fan of no-bake treats? What are some of your favorites to make for your family?
