  • 3 cups gluten-free O-style cereal (I used Nature's Path) (4 1/2 ounces; 127 grams)
  • 3 cups gluten-free crisp rice cereal (4 1/2 ounces; 127 grams)
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries, finely chopped (3 ounces; 85 grams)
  • 1 cup bake-dried apple chips, finely chopped (1 ounce; 28 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal (1/3 ounce; 18 grams)
  • 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil (4 tablespoons; 2 ounces; 56 grams)
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag mini-marshmallows
  • non-stick gluten-free cooking spray


  1. Lightly grease 9x13-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In large bowl, toss together cereals, dried cherries, apple chips, and ground flaxseed meal.
  3. In large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir constantly with wooden spoon until marshmallows are melted and smooth. Add cereal mixture. Stir quickly to coat cereal with melted marshmallows. Transfer mixture to prepared pan. Using your hands or a piece of parchment paper, pat mixture down evenly into pan. Chill two hours or overnight. Cut into 14 bars.
