Celebrating Cereal

With Gluten Free Food getting more attention than ever, we wanted to celebrate our favourite gluten free offerings- cereal. There is nothing better than being able to fill your bowl high with gluten free cereals. Barkat has over 8 different cereals to choose from which means we can always have something different for breakfast every morning.

This month Speciality Food Magazine are discussing the increase of gluten free foods. Ellis from Barkat explains how breakfast foods can now be enjoyed properly by followers of a gluten free diet:

So we wanted to suggest different ways of enjoying our favourite breakfast cereals- because sometimes just adding milk can get a bit boring.

1. Add Stewed Apple
I love to add stewed apple to a bowl of Muesli in the morning- serve with a big spoon of yoghurt too and breakfast gets that little bit more exciting.

2. Almond, Rice, Coconut Milk
Sometimes cow's milk gives us a bloated feeling (which is never nice for Coeliacs!) so we like to experiment with different milks. Almond milk has a lovely sweet taste which is lovely with a bowl of crispy cornflakes. Or make your porridge a bit more creamy with coconut milk instead of the normal dairy equivalent.

3. Sprinkle with toasted nuts and seeds
Add a healthy dose of fats to your breakfast cereal. Simply toast some almonds and pecans or sunflower and pumpkin seeds in the oven for 10 mins with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Leave them to cool and add this crunchy addition to your cereal bowl.

4. Frozen yoghurt- As summer approaches sometimes it is fun to swap milk with a healthy dose of frozen yoghurt. Just sprinkle the cereal on top, maybe with a drizzle of honey and you've got an exciting breakfast sorted.

Let us know what you think of our top tips for jazzing up your breakfast!
