I have been a self confessed cereal addict since a young age; from Coco Pops to Cornflakes to Sultana Bran, you name it, I ate it. I would have a bowl of one for breakfast and a bowl of one for an afternoon snack, then maybe mix a combination of three the next morning. Now, while I have learned to be much healthier and diverse in my food options as I have matured, breakfast is and will always be on par with dessert as my favourite meal, and I am still known to make a combination of a thousand "cereals" (now mostly refined sugar free and allergy friendly) in one. It's my best trick.
That being said, my love for breakfast and dessert, and the release of a gluten free version of my old time bestie, Weetbix, has seen the birth of many new fun combo's in my kitchen. One being this super simple slice!
- 1 Free Range Egg
- Approx 56-60g Buckwheat Flour or your choice of GF flour
- 10-20g Cocoa / Cacao powder - this is the minimum, adjust to how chocolatey/rich suits you
- 3-4 crushed Gluten Free Weetbix (or normal if you tolerate it. Show off.)
- 100g Margarine/Vegan Butter
- 75g Rice Malt Syrup (I'm sure golden would work just fine)
- 25g Brown Sugar (I use unrefined)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract(optional)
Are you ready for this?
- Mix all ingredients
- Line baking tray and place mixture in
- bake for 20/25 minutes
- Let cool and then eat. Or don't, just eat. Whatever floats your boat really!
And that's it! Told you it was easy!
If you would like to make it sweeter, you can also add in shredded coconut and/or frozen raspberries. More fun options include:
- Add in chocolate chips (gluten and dairy free for my allergy kindred spirits)
- Make a chocolate topping with raw cacao butter, powder and coconut oil - this would then need to be set in the fridge.
I will be continuing to play with the recipe so keep checking back for what I come up with and please let me know if you have any questions. If you try my recipes, definitely tag me on instagram - I would love to see! @natalieshaw_xo
Finally, please note, that if you too are on the low Fodmap diet - you will need to determine how much coconut you can handle, if this is an option that appeals to you.
Enjoy! x x x
