Nature’s Path are a gluten free cereal brand. They make many flavours, some of which imitate your pre-diagnosis favourites! Check out my Youtube live taste test to see what our first impressions were!
This granola has oat clusters, a mix of freeze dried berries and yoghurt chips. Having never had “normal” granola before my diagnosis, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it’s safe to say that I thought it was delicious. These cereals are not overly sugary and this one especially was packed with flavours. The texture varied between the crunchy oats and soft yoghurt chips which made a nice change from other cereals. I would definitely buy this again.
4 out of 5 stars for a delicious alternative to normal cereals. I would have liked to see a wider range of granola flavours – a chocolate and berry one would be amazing.
This cereal is a clear substitute for gluten containing brand Cheerio’s and I think it succeeds very well if this was its aim was to replicate this. I would however say that this is one of their plainer cereals – if you like stronger flavours this probably isn’t the cereal for you.
3 out of 5 stars for a good replica of Cheerios which can be a little lacking in flavour for my taste.
Again this cereal is filling the role that Rice Crispies play in the “normal” market. I think these have a very satisfying texture and made fantastic rice crispy cakes for my Easter recipe. Again, this is a plainer tasting cereal compared to the granola, but if you liked Rice Crispies before diagnosis, these will be perfect for you.
3 out of 5 stars again for a convincing Rice Crispies substitute which just needed an extra boost to become something I would buy again.
This cereal is by far my favourite. I’m some what of a chocolate addict which makes me favour this cereal over the others. It should be noted that this cereal – whilst undeniably chocolatey and a perfect replacement for Nesquik’s cereals – is not much higher in calories or sugar than their other cereals. For example, Chocomunch contains 138 kcal and 12g of sugar per serving, whilst Crispy Rice is 260 kcal and 9.6g of sugar and the Os are 120 kcal and 3.9g of sugar. It still tastes just like the chocolatey children’s cereals I loved!
5 out of 5 stars for my all time favourite gluten free cereal. Enough said I think.
Choc Chip Granola Bars
These are another winner for me. Firstly, they are delicious – not overly sweet again but with the right level of chocolatey goodness and oaty texture. Secondly, they are individually wrapped and so make the ideal snack to take travelling or to university or school.
5 out of 5 stars for a delicious portable snack.
