Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chex Marshmallow Treats

For the past couple years I have been trying to be gluten free. After many an appointment with doctors of western medicine, I was referred to a doctor of eastern medicine. My fertility Accupuncture doctor  told me that I was congested and I needed to cut out gluten and sugar from my diet. Sugar posed to be extremely difficult. But I thought to myself, sugar versus flour? Hmm, if you drop a tablespoon of flour in a small glass of water what will you get? Paste? Cloudy water? The flour never really dissolves. Sugar however, in a small glass of water will dissolve. Cutting out flour and gluten products was a no brainer.  Sugar for me however is a harder sell.  Cutting out flour and gluten was much easier. I started this blog originally inspired by my sister who is the creator and writer of and I will still post in this blog, however I have started another Just Me Trying To Be Gliten Free at

I will post most of my gluten free recipes in the new blog. Although most of my recipes on this blog could be made gluten free by substituting a GF flour for regular flour.

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chex Marshmallow Treats

One 10.5 bag mini marshmallows
