“ Brand: Nairn's / Type: Porridge „
Porridge has always been a favourite of my daughter and I, whether for breakfasts or making flap jacks or including them in stuffings etc..
When we were both diagnosed with a severe gluten and wheat intolerence, the use of porridge / oats were suddenly ousted from our diet.
We tried the usual gluten / wheat free products but none ever seemed the same as good old porridge oats, they took so much longer to make, plus, we felt that the texture and the flavour seemed to lack the most comforting essence of a 'normal' porridge.
Then the other week, we were doing our shopping and came across Nairn's Gluten Free Real Porridge Oats.
Nairn's has an excellent reputation for porridge oats, meusli, and oatcakes products - that at first I was a little wary, but the packaging does state that "the gluten free oats are grown in separate fields and milled in uncontaminated conditions", which is really reasurring.
We found the boxes of Nairn's Gluten Free Real Porridge Oats at Tesco's on the Free From Aisle, but at £2.99 for a box, it seemed expensive but we thought we'd try it.
Its easy to make (just like 'normal' porridge),and it does have a really creamy texture, with a comforting warming taste. We've tried to make our flap jacks, but some working out in the recipe is needed, as they didn't seem to 'set' well.
I'm not sure what we did (or didn't do), but all in all, I think the oats are a valuable addition to our daily fayre.
