Advantages: A healthy snack that provides energy
Disadvantages: Six in a packet may be a bit much for one sitting
I often buy crackers for later in the week when the bread runs out, and for snacking purposes. I generally alternate between the different crackers on offer to add a bit of diversity and variety. I often like to try out different products, as this introduces different foods into my son's diet. Whilst perusing the savoury cracker shelf in the supermarket my eyes were drawn to the Nairn's Oat cakes. These are not something that I had tried before, and I had no idea if I would actually like them.
After purchasing and trying the plain Nairn's Oat Cakes I was keen to try the other varieties that are available. I opted for a box of the Cheese flavoured Oat Cakes to try, as I thought these would be a nice alternative. The 200g box contains four individually sealed packets that contain six Oat Cakes. This makes an ideal snack for taking out or popping into a lunchbox for a healthy treat. I often carry a pack of these when heading out as part of my lunch, as they are easily portable and need no extra toppings.
The Cheese Oat Cakes are a healthy option that is suitable for vegetarians. They are baked with whole grain oats which naturally release energy to keep you going throughout the day. They are wheat free and contain minimal ingredients, which makes it easy to see that this is a healthy snack. They contain no artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives and are GM free. This makes these delicious Oat Cakes a healthy option for adults and children alike.
The Oat Cakes are quite thin and delicate looking. They have a golden colour to them, and they look rather appetising. They can be enjoyed as they are, or you can add a topping if desired. I personally prefer to eat these on their own, as they are already flavoured. Biting into the Oat Cake it has a nice crunch to it. The mature cheddar tastes authentic and gives these oat cakes a delicious flavour. They are good enough to eat alone, and make an excellent healthy snack.
I find these Cheese Oat Cakes to be a tasty addition to my lunch. They are rather filling and provide me with energy to keep me going through the day. I generally have a packet of Nairn's in the cupboard and alternate between the different flavours. I find these to be a good option for taking out and about, as they are cheese flavoured which can be enjoyed without a topping. The savoury option is quite nice, too.
These Nairn's Cheese Oat Cakes are available in some supermarkets and can be purchased from Holland & Barrett.
