I like biscuits, I like porridge and I like Oatcakes so when I was asked to review Nairn’s Gluten Free Easy Porridge, Nairn’s Gluten Free Biscuit Breaks oat and syrup and Nairn’s Oat Cracker Thins, I couldn’t wait to try them.
I tried Nairn’s Gluten Free Biscuit Breaks Oat and Syrup first. They come in a box with 4 packets of 4 biscuits in each packet. When I tried them I was expecting them to be quite bland as they were gluten free and only 47 calories per biscuit as a regular biscuit can be around 100 calories each.
I was surprised that this wasn’t the case, they tasted similar to a higher calorie well know brand of oaty biscuit with syrup. Think flapjacks compressed into biscuit form and I think that is what they are like. They are really tasty and they were a perfect mid morning snack with my cup of tea. As they are wrapped in packs of 4 they were also small enough for me to pop in my bag if I was out in the day so I could have a snack on the go.
I really enjoyed these.
The Nairn’s Oat Cracker Thins are thin crackers made with wholegrain oats. They are wheat free.
Each cracker is just 32 calories. I tried these with my regular soft cheese spread cracker topping at lunchtime. I did find these a bit dull, there was no real flavour, they were pretty bland.
Nairn’s Gluten Free Easy Porridge was really easy to make, boil the kettle pour the hot water to the line and wait about 5 minutes and it was done, there are no bowls to wash up afterwards either as you use the pot you make it in.
I love porridge and this was gorgeous and quick to make so great if you are in a rush in the mornings. After eating the Nairn’s Easy Porridge I felt ready for a busy day and it filled me up until lunchtime.
I have since purchased more of these as they are so quick and easy and the children love them too.
All of these are available in Tesco and Waitrose stores.
