Looking for something different to have for breakfast that offers variety as well as flavour, then look no further than this recipe for 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?
