When I was asked to try out some of the Genius gluten free products, I immediately said yes. Genius is a brand we know and use regularly. Chloe really likes their crumpets and pancakes as well as the cakes that they produce and they are one of the only brands easily accessible to us which offer a wide range of gluten, dairy and soya free products.
We were sent a selection of baked products including Blueberry muffins, crumpets, fruit loaf and pancakes. Chloe thought it was her birthday.
The muffins are delicious and packed full of fresh blueberries – I shared one with Chloe and I was really impressed with the texture and flavour. The texture is nearly always what disappoints me when it comes to gluten free cakes, I think the blueberries really help as they make it moist and similar to a normal muffin. These are in handy packs of two and perfect for picnics.
The crumpets we know and love already, in fact we all enjoy these rather than just saving them for Chloe as we do with lots of other free from goods. They have a good shelf life on them which is good if you are the only gluten free person in your household.
The pancakes are probably the most frequent Genius purchase I make, they are transportable and not too messy so make a good snack/treat when we attend playgroups or pop to the park. I also use them for Chloe on weekends if I make normal pancakes for the rest of the family. She likes hers with fruit and a little honey or Sweet Freedom Choc Shot syrup – weekends are for indulgent treats after all.
Below I have created a simple yet satisfying breakfast serving suggestion for the pancakes with griddled peaches drizzled with honey. Chloe adored this for breakfast yesterday – she definitely felt she was being spoiled.
