That's a great idea! I may just try that next time! The Rice Chex Squares are fantastic! I hope you enjoy them.

Hey! Try a teaspoon or two of Xanthem Gum, it will help! Also, have you thought of throwing in a bag of mini M&Ms? My hubby LOVES his mothers oatmeal M&M cookies and even though she lives across the yard and makes them for him regularly, sometimes I like to bake them and enjoy them with him, so I use her receipe, just modified to fit my needs. Your receipes are great! i can't wait to try the rice crispies!

1/3 cup Unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups Gluten Free Rolled oats

1/2 cup Sugar

1/4 cup Brown sugar - scant, firmly packed

1/8 t Salt

1 t Vanilla extract, gluten free

1 Egg

Melt the butter and set aside to cool. Place oats in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in both sugars and the salt and blend to break up any lumps.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, vanilla and egg. Stir this into the oat mixture, mixing with your hands or a large wooden spoon to work in the ingredients. Form into a large ball of dough.

Chill the dough 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350F. Meanwhile, prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.

Form the chilled dough into 1-inch balls and flatten down very slightly on the baking sheet. Bake for 13 to 17 minutes or until the edges are nicely browned and the tops of the cookies are medium golden in color.

Cool well on the baking sheet (about 10 minutes) before attempting to remove, using a metal spatula or icing knife.

The dough can also be brought to room temperature and flattened more when placed on the baking sheet to make a large, crisp and lace-like cookie. Keep the cookies refrigerated.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies.


-Here are a few things I noticed when I made this recipe. The dough isn't really a dough but looks like wet granola. To that end, it doesn't really form a ball. I rolled it up into some cling wrap and put it in the fridge.

-I added a tsp of cinnamon because I really like cinnamon with my oatmeal! It was really good.

-Again, the cookies aren't really balls when you put them on the parchment, but more like little cookie mounds. I tried to smush them together the best that I could.

These are fabulous and I think they roughly come out to be around 100 calories per cookie. They're not great for you but if you need something sweet they're great!
