I am so excited that today is National Cereal Day, because cereal is my most favorite carbohydrate-filled food. It is perhaps one of the best late-night, fiber-filled, satisfying snack that comes in so many varieties and flavors.
Gluten-free enthusiasts are fortunate to have many options today, and if you’re like me, you can be quite picky about which selection to make! I am also a huge fan of not just having one type of cereal in my bowl, but rather, creating an amalgamation of different cereals that dance together with just the slightest splash of milk to give them a little soak.
You may have seen one of my all-time favorite cereal varieties in my post, “Bed Time Bites,” which is Barbara’s Multigrain Puffins. This is even better when paired with freshly sliced bananas or a small handful of raisins.
Another cereal that I absolutely adore is Nature’s Path Honey’d Corn Flakes. I was hooked at first bite, as these gluten-free flakes are thicker than the standard brands and are lightly sweetened with a touch of honey to give it that dessert-like feeling.
Finally, a sweet little secret I’ll share with you is our recent find – Glutino Gluten-Free Products. While they carry an entire line of snacks, frozen meals and baking mixes, their cereals are absolutely delicious. One of my favorite varieties is the Apple & Cinnamon Rings cereal, which is great as a before-bed snack and doesn’t require any additions (except for a splash of nonfat milk!)
I am a firm believer of eating cereal at any time of day – not just in the morning as a breakfast meal – so these varieties are my favorite options for enjoying in bed to my favorite show.
