You may remember a year ago I started a movement on Instagram that no-one really asked for but that I personally really loved (and clearly still do!): #ifyouhaveaweetbix.
The aim is to showcase how versatile, fun and delicious Weetbix are in TONS of recipes - because I think it's so important to get people to realise just how easy and accessible healthy recipes can be to make. You don't need heaps of fancy, expensive ingredients from a health-food store. You just need some humble Weetbix.
So hopefully this will inspire you guys to get in the kitchen and get creative with a staple that everyone can enjoy!
WHY USE WEETBIX?
1. They provide an easy Gluten-Free, Vegan & Low FODMAP option - who knew a humble cereal could be so inclusive?! You can use their Gluten Free options, their Cholesterol-Lowering version, and even their high Protein Weetbix Bites. As long as you can crush them up, you can use any version you prefer for a base to a recipe.
2. They're WAY more affordable than other flour alternatives - buckwheat flour, coconut flour and almond meal may be popular 'healthy' alternatives, but they can be really expensive or impractical to buy. Weetbix provide a super affordable and accessible base for recipes. Plus, they last a lot longer than other flours do too!
3. Their texture is underrated - if you think of Weetbix as dry or crumbly - you've been eating them wrong! When combined with the right amount of liquid and wet ingredients, they become so thick, fudgy and literally melt in your mouth. Bake one of the Weetbix Brownies if you don't believe me!
4. They contain minimal ingredients - don't be fooled by the fact that they're a packaged cereal! Weetbix are surprisingly 'clean' label and the standard varieties contain minimal added sugar and sodium.
I hope you guys found some inspiration from these recipes and won't ever look at Weetbix as a dull breakfast option ever again!
