Another new favorite allergen free recipe!

My favorite Uncles leave tomorrow. I know it is time for them to go, and usually Derek and I are content to live as far away from family as we do, but for whatever reason I just don't want to see these guys go home! I have truly enjoyed them!

I have still had time to putter in the kitchen for Abby. She had a rough week this week. So, I had to find something that would appeal to her and encourage her to eat.

I did manage a gluten free, corn free,soy free, dairy free, nut free bread in the bread machine- it wasn't perfect but Abby was thrilled! We haven't found a sandwich bread either at the store or making at home that she could eat, so this was a huge accomplishment.

The recipe I am going to share is much easier though. I had a big bag of puffed brown rice in the pantry. With the limited foods Abby can eat she hasn't had anything crunchy like cereal or snacks or crackers in months. I decided to figure out making either some sort of "kettle" puffed rice or "caramel" puffed rice. It really turned out terrific. I think I burnt my sugars a touch and with the coconut oil instead of butter and no dairy, it really reminds of sugar smacks- not a bad a thing at all! I will be making this again and again.

Candied Puffed Rice

Put 1/3 c. coconut oil, 1/2 c. palm or coconut sugar (or other natural sugar) and 1/4 c. real maple syrup in a small saucepan. Add a pinch or two of pink himalayan salt.
Heat the mixture on medium high. Be sure to keep stirring. Bring to a boil and allow it to boil for 2 minutes, without letting it burn!
Pour over the 2 1/2 cups puffed rice or millet. Using a large wooden spoon, gently stir the puffed rice until all of the pieces are coated.
Spread the coated puffed rice onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes at 300 degrees. (mine seemed cooked at 10 minutes)
Store leftovers in an airtight container.

Here is a LINK to the original recipe that I tweaked and modified for Abby.

That is so awesome!!! That seems like such a great treat!!!!!! I am sure you will be able to find a good sandwich bread recipe. You are so good in the kitchen!
Thank you for your support. I hate hard times like these. I hope that this is just a bad week for Abby and next week she is doing much better. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.
