Traditionally a meal given to the most gluteny delights (pastries! cereal! toast!) breakfast can be a bit of a minefield for coeliacs, especially if like me, you cannot tolerate gluten free oats. Thankfully there are a few hero products here to save the day. All of the below are gluten, wheat and oat free, and flipping delicious.
Readily available in the Freefrom aisle, not ridic expensive (well, as gluten free foods go), and you can make the packets go a long way. Though both versions are nice, I prefer the buckwheat. Pair with plain greek yoghurt.
These are my current favourite, though my wallet is not thanking me. They are expensive, but they are the tastiest gluten free muesli I’ve found. You can find them on Ocado, or instore at Wholefoods. You can also order them in bulk from Drossa Ltd. Pair with plain greek yoghurt.
I mentioned these before in my GF snacking post; these are what I grab if I don’t have time to eat a proper breakfast, and need to eat on the bus / at my desk. They are a good solid energy boost. Pair with a mug of strong builders tea.
As far as I’m concerned, porridge is the perfect hearty winter breakfast. I was very happy to find an oat-free alternative. Pair with delicious honey from The Hive Honey Shop in Clapham.
Yes yes you could get ten normal ones for the same price, but these pastries from Genius are divine. To put it into perspective; in 21 years of being coeliac, these are the only pastry product I have continually repurchased. Light and flaky, with gooey chocolate inside, just make sure to warm them up in the oven. Pair with a genteel rooibos tea.
For those times you just need to eat kids cereal and forget about the calories. These are readily available in larger supermarkets and health food shops. Pair with whole milk and Disney films.
