Introducing brand new Gluten Free Oats, Apple & Cinnamon Chunky Biscuit Breaks from Nairn’s

Posted: 5th November 2019

Tea and biscuits have never tasted so good!

 Chunky. Biscuity. Tea-Breaky.  Three perfect words to describe the brand new Gluten Free Oats, Apple and Cinnamon Chunky Biscuit Breaks from Nairn’s.

Deliciously light and crumbly in texture, they are perfect for those looking for something a little bit chunkier from their favourite teatime treat.  This brand new variety pairs that classic combo of fruity apple and spicy cinnamon which is almost reminiscent of a freshly baked apple crumble – but with all the benefits of wholegrain oats, you needn’t feel quite as guilty when you reach for a treat.  We reckon these are the ultimate companion for your next cuppa!

 Lower in sugar and calories

It’s true, Nairn’s know a thing or two about oats (they’ve been baking with them since 1896) but they are also the UK leaders in lower sugar biscuits too.  Action on Sugar’s latest report[1] revealed Nairn’s sweet biscuit ranges had the lowest sugar per 100g and the second lowest calories per 100g.  The new Oats, Apple & Cinnamon Chunky Biscuit Breaks are no exception to the rule, with an impressive 50% less sugar than the average gluten free sweet biscuit!  If that wasn’t enough, they’re also high in fibre and only 63 calories per biscuit.

These tasty Chunky Biscuit Breaks come in handy pouch packs making them easy to pop in your bag for a mid-morning or afternoon snack on the go – a healthier and delicious treat that you can enjoy almost guilt-free.

 The power of oats

 For centuries, wholegrain oats have been seen as a rich source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and contain complex carbohydrates that give a natural and wholesome boost.  The high fibre content of these Chunky Biscuit Breaks will help you to feel fuller for longer, as they provide a slower release of energy throughout the day.   Perfect for coeliacs, or those who simply choose to follow a gluten free lifestyle, they’re so moreish you wouldn’t even know they were gluten free!
