This is a great grain-free alternative for those with continual rice krispie treat cravings (me, everyday). If pressed for time, you can use pre-made (preferably high-quality) marshmallows.
  1. Bloom gelatin in ¾ c cold water in metal mixing bowl.
  2. Simmer honey/maple syrup w/ remaining water (1/2 c) in pot over medium heat until temperature reaches 240 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer.
  3. Pour (very hot) mixture carefully into bloomed gelatin and beat with electric mixer. Mixture should quadruple in volume and start to look like liquid marshmallows (about 5-10 minutes of mixing).
  4. Beat until stiff peaks form (but don't overbeat, stop before mixture is solid).
  5. Gently fold in ghee/coconut oil, salt, and quinoa.
  6. Spread mixture evenly onto 9x9 parchment-lined pan. Refrigerate for a few hours to set and cut into squares to serve.
