The Launch of Gluten Free Nutribix

Hold on to your hats – gluten free weetabix now EXISTS! Nutribix is a brand new cereal which has just launched, it’s 100% gluten free and it looks mysteriously like the good old Weetabix of gluten-eating times gone by.

The cereal is made with the latest super grain, Sorghum. The ancient crop that has been growing in Africa for thousands of years, it contains fibre, iron, protein, vitamins and is low in fat.

I was always a big weetabix fan, so really like this new gluten free variation! It’s great if you’re looking for something filling that’ll keep you going until lunch, too.

Nutribix is now on supermarket shelves across the UK. Has anyone else tried this brand new gluten free version of weetabix? What did you think?

Hotel Chocolat’s Gluten Free Choccies

Luckily for us, the good people of Hotel Chocolat believe everyone should be able to include top-quality chocolate at the heart of a healthy lifestyle. So, they’ve created the ‘no gluten gift box’ (£35) – a great hamper of gluten free goodies perfect for Christmas.

 

This gorgeous selection is the perfect gift for any chocolate lover following a gluten-free diet. The box includes wheat free chocolates; Praline H-box, Florentine Isabelles, Salted Caramel Puddles, Strawberries and Cream Puddles, and a Mini Hazelnut Bûche.

Not only is this chocolate some of the most delicious around, it’s also packaged beautifully, so it’s great for presents (or as a gift for yourself of course!)

You can buy the ‘no gluten gift box’ online here, or you can see all of Hotel Chocolat’s gluten free choccies here (there are a LOT).

Warning: Although all the chocolate in the no gluten gift box does not have gluten-containing ingredients, customers are asked to be aware that biscuits are handled in the same factory, so there is a ‘may contain’ warning.

The Easiest Gluten Free Brownies… Ever!

My Monday took a drastic turn for the MUCH BETTER, when I decided to try out Bob’s Redmill Gluten Free Brownie Mix, an easy peasy brownie batter mixture which you can get from the health food shop Holland & Barrett.

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 14.17.02

The mixture is great if you’re short of time or lazy like moi! All you need to do is add a few ingredients which probably wouldn’t do too well in a bag (like eggs, butter etc.), mix it all up and whack it in the oven.

The end result was surprisingly good! Freshly baked gluten free brownies that tasted just as good as the gluten-full kind. I’d recommend it.
