Gluten Free Cereal

Last year April when my parents came to visit I bought gluten free cereal for my dad. I decided there and then that I would make my own version, thinking it would be easy. The first thing I did was buy some buckwheat for sprouting. I used my tried and tested sprouting method and the buckwheat went all slimy. So I turned to Brydie’s blog as I remembered seeing her post on how to do this a long time ago. I followed her instructions, with the same results. And so I sent Brydie an email and with her help I realized my buckwheat was toasted, not raw, and therefore could not be sprouted. I shall leave that aside for another recipe. I then tried to puff my own rice, but that ended up in a crunchy treat not suitable for breakfast. So, I resorted to buying the puffed rice and using that as the base for my cereal. Not being very sure how sweet my dad would want his cereal, I added no honey to my recipe. His only complaint was that it was not sweet enough. I took what was left over and added honey and got the perfect balance of sweetness for my palate. Dave said it was much improved and has eaten gluten free cereal for breakfast at work during the week. Have you tried sprouting buckwheat, or puffing rice?

  8. There is a nice gluten free cereal that I have every time I visit the QANTAS club. I’m not GF but just enjoy it for a change. If I was GF, I think I would investigate making it myself as costs on these items are high but given I’d only be providing it for a GF house guest, would probably just buy a box. Here’s a link to the one I like: http://www.brookfarm.com.au/products/muesli/gluten-free-macadamia-muesli/p/54

  13. I love the idea of making my own cereal just for the sake that in the general Niagara Falls area where I live, cereal is 4-5 U.S. bucks a box! That’s insane. And I’d have to eat half a box just to feel full. Sprouting is right up my alley! And I’m finding that plenty of people who technically don’t need a gluten free diet are eating that way anyhow.
