My new gluten free tiffin recipe is made with one of my favourite things; Nature’s Path granola, instead of biscuits. (If you want my other tiffin recipe you’ll find it here. Don’t be put off by the cricket flour, if you don’t want to use that there are substitution options).
If you’ve never tried this granola then you really must. It’s a treat in our house that gets scooped out of the bag and eaten by the handful.
It rarely makes it to the breakfast table, instead being eaten as a snack, sprinkled on ice cream or enjoyed with fruit for pudding.
Nature’s Path are one of my favourite ‘free from’ companies. The company was founded in 1985 inspired by the mantra that “we should always leave the earth better than we found it.” Something that the founders father always used to say.
All of their products are organic and produced in a sustainable manner. The vast majority are gluten free too.
I adore tiffin and given the versatility of Nature’s Path granola, I wanted to try making gluten free tiffin with it.
Tiffin is usually made from crushed up biscuits, but instead I took the granola and used that as the base of the recipe.
Nature’s Path make two flavours of their granola.
Blueberry, Raspberry and Strawberry:
And Pumpkin Seed, Almond & Raisin:
My favourite is the blueberry, raspberry and strawberry one. It has freeze dried blueberries, strawberries and raspberries in it along with yoghurt chips.
The pumpkin variety contains almonds, dried cranberries, raisins and cinnamon.
The added ingredients in the granola enhance the incredible flavour in the gluten free tiffin.
I can’t quite decide which one makes the best gluten free tiffin so I’ll leave you to decide. I suggest you make the recipe at least twice using each variety.
If you want to reduce the sugar content of the recipe then leave the chocolate off the top. They are still utterly delicious.
Before I share the recipe I have one more exciting thing to announce.
