This month, thanks to Nestle, I’ve been trying out their new gluten free honey flakes for breakfast.
They also now make Gluten Free Corn Flakes so if you are coeliac or can’t have cereals with wheat, these are a great choice for a healthy breakfast.
I’ve not opened the corn flakes yet, working my way through the honey flakes.
What’s in the honey flakes?
The ingredients are: Maize, Brown Sugar, Sugar, Dextrose, Salt, Honey (0.5%), Caramelised Sugar Syrup
Vitamins and Minerals: Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Riboflavin (B2), Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin D, Iron
They’re pretty damn good though they are quite sweet. I’ve been enjoying them with Provamel coconut milk which is REALLY coconuty and goes very well with the honey sweetness. They stay nice and crunchy, don’t go soggy and filled me up.
They are also certified gluten free by Coeliac UK and it seems have actually been around for quite some time.
As for where you can buy them, I’d assume large supermarkets will stock them. Waitrose certainly do so you can buy them online.
I usually keep my sugar intake to a minimum but these are a lovely treat and would be great for kids who have coeliac disease or a wheat allergy. It feels like having normal cereal… not special freefrom cereal. They also contain vitamins and minerals so help towards your recommended daily intake.
Anyone else tried them? What’s your favourite gluten free or wheat free cereal?
