1. Chocolate Chip–Pretzel Bars
These salty-sweet bars are deliciously gooey on the inside.

2. Mixed Berry Snack Bars

3. Large and Luscious Two-Chip Oatmeal Cookies
These irresistible cookies are filled with shredded coconut to make them extra chewy.

4. Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Rice Krispies Gluten Free cereal, made with brown rice instead of white, is the secret to these crisp and chewy sweets.

5. Cranberry–Pumpkin Seed Energy Bars
These honey–flavored cereal bars with puffed rice and toasted oats make a great substitute for store-bought energy bars.

6. Crackersnacks
