If avoiding gluten, use a gluten-free crispy rice cereal.

Although not tried, the corn syrup can likely be replaced with Golden Syrup or brown rice syrup to avoid corn.

To avoid peanuts, the peanut butter could be replaced with any safe nut or seed butter.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Just an FYI, regular Kellogg's Rice Krispies are NOT gluten free, the barley malt in the cereal supplies the gluten. But Kellogg's does have a gluten free version.

Great point, Scott - there are different types of Rice Krispies. Additionally, Kellogg's just announced they may be discontinuing the gluten-free Rice Krispies. There is another gluten-free rice crispy cereal made by Erewhon, but they are harder to find.
