Vanilla Cookie Krispie Treats {Gluten-Free}

I decided to start this working from home thing with a bang.

Vanilla Cookie Krispie Treats {Gluten-Free}

5:15am wake-up

6 am INSANITY workout

6:45 try not to die while writing my blog post

Vanilla Cookie Krispie Treats {Gluten-Free}

I feel the 3pm exhaustion coming on already.  Luckily, in a time like that, there are super easy desserts to make that have everyone falling in love.  Seriously.  I brought these Vanilla Cookie Krispie Treats to my sister’s birthday party and her friends all thought I was a culinary genius.  I tried to explain to them that they took about 15 minutes of work from start to finish but they just wouldn’t believe me.  Guess I’ll just have to continue to look like a kitchen rockstar even when I’m unable to move.

    Hurrah for you first day working from home! If it was me, I’d probably still be in bed so I think you’re off to a great start.

    These look absolutely delicious, I love the crunch of adding the cookies in there too!

    Very jealous of your first day working from home! Reckon I’d be exactly the same, starting off in a blur of eager excitement and burning myself out. Just pop one of these in your mouth for energy and you’ll be fine though – they look like a pretty good sugar rush!

    Haha so I guess Insanity is pretty intense? :P

    It’s okay…I can’t really move either. We can walk around looking like 80 year old cripples together!

    These rice krispies treats sound amazing! The addition of the sandwich cookies is kind of genius.

    Oooh, what an intriguing idea :) I love rice krispie treats, so these, I am sure, would be delicious, too.

    I made golden grahams smores/RKTreats about 6 months ago but I baked them and did baked bars, rather than no-bake. I love how QUICK yours are! And gooey!

    I totally kind of envy your ability to get up and get things going without having little people in your way. Someday! But my lil ones would definitely adore these treats!!

    Ohhh delicious! I like to keep gluten-free goodie recipes bookmarked just in case–since ciliac’s runs in my family and my cousins didn’t know they had it until their 20s. Scary, but all the good options make me a little less scared :)

    These are so fun, enjoy your “first day”!
