These are millet puffs.

If you can get past the fact that they look like beanbag chair stuffing, you can make cereal treats with them.

Peanut Butter Millet Puff Treats:

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash cinnamon
1/4 cup peanut butter
4 cups millet puff cereal

Combine brown sugar and corn syrup in a large sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until boiling and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and peanut butter and stir until smooth. Add in cereal and stir until coated. Press into 9 x 13 pan. Cut into 24 squares when cool.

I formed them into balls, just to be weird.

I don't know how many calories are in Rice Krispies, but millet puffs have 60 calories per cup. These are quick, easy to make, light and yummy treats!

Hi Diann!! Those look like "rice krispee treats!" Looks good. (Beanbag chair stuffing? Lol!)

Thanks for your info on the gluten-free question I had asked on Crystal's blog. I had no idea why so many people began avoiding it, and thought it was only for the very allergic. I think I will limit my gluten intake to see how I feel! (Maybe after the holidays though.) Lol!!

I'm going to research the web for more info on this! Thanks again!!

Yum, millet puffs! I like these and the kamut puffs, but don't know why, since they don't taste like anything! It feels like I'm eating space food! =D

These look great. I like your idea. I don't know if you were reading my blog back then, but I have a similiar recipe (and I made it once with millet) and I used to make treats all the time, way more than I even blogged about. They are a nice basic recipe to always be tweaking and adding new things.

I love that you made them into balls just to be weird. That sounds like something I would do! I use to drive this one chef crazy with "being weird" food things when I was feeling silly. I currently drive my current chef crazy with my peanut butter sandwich appetizer tower. I'll have to take a photo of it one day. :)

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
