Head straight on to the recipe for Gluten Free Cereal ♥
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?

Love the addition of goji berries.
Thanks Bobbi 🙂
I’ve never tried sprouting buckwheat before or puffing rice!! It sounds fun though-like a science experiment.
It was a science experiment for sure 🙂
We are trying to eat more gluten free meals (I should actually be eating all gluten free meals), so this sounds perfect to me. A great start to the day!
It is so filling as well Dannii 🙂
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.
I always make my own cereal / muesli as at least I know what goes into it 🙂
Homemade cereal is always so much better than store-bought! Love the coconut addition!
Thanks Melanie 🙂
Will have to send this to my god daughters who are both gluten intolerant! Looks very tasty 🙂
I hope they enjoy it Tanya 🙂
This is fascinating! I’m planning a week of posts on sprouting, and I can’t wait to try all different kinds of sprouting techniques. I love the idea of making your own cereal!
I look forward to reading your posts Sue 🙂
Hi Tandy, no have never tried sprouting buckwehat or puffing rice but I am very interested in learning how. Great recipe!
I shall have to try the rice puffing experiment a few more times 🙂
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
Thanks, I will take a look at the link 🙂
Nice one, Tandy!

Thank you Anu 🙂
Really cool recipe, I eaten gluten but would love to make this. Nope never puffed rice but have tried sprouting various seeds. Some easy some not.
I find the same with the seeds I sprout 🙂
This sounds delicious and healthy. It’s a must try recipe for sure.
Thank you Doreen 🙂
I’ve never tried sprouting buckwheat – but I am a huge fan of Buckwheat flour! I bet this homemade cereal was way better than store bought stuff!
I might have to get myself the mill for my Kitchen Aid to make flour with my buckwheat 🙂
YUM! This looks awesome! Yay for cereal! I love that you made it G.free! <3
Hope you try and make this Cailee 🙂
Wow you are very ambitious with trying these techniques! The cereal looks fabulous though, and I bet it was very delicious 🙂
It was very delicious 🙂
