What do you do for breakfast? If you’re anything like me you’d much rather spend the precious morning hours in bed or faffing with your make up than bothering with breakfast. I always have breakfast at work in the week, so tend to keep something in my desk drawers to start the morning with. Sometimes it’s cereal, but more often than not, it’s biscuits! Yes, I know that’s naughty, but it’s so easy.
This week I’ve been munching the brand new McVitie’s Breakfast Biscuits in Red Berries flavour. These are super yummy, oaty biscuits. They taste a bit like Rusks (which I like, so don’t look at me weird) and Hob Nobs, with tasty berry bits in for something a bit more interesting than your standard breakfast biscuit. You can also get these in Oat & Honey and Apple, Sultana & Cinnamon flavours.
These little breakfast biscuits come sealed in packs of four so a perfect size to pop into your handbag when you’re on the go. These are baked with wholegrain porridge oats to provide a slow release energy source that we all know is so important when you’re busy. They are also fortified with important vitamins such as vitamin D and B and sources of iron and calcium too. So, with those little facts, let’s say these are healthy biscuits! For those who calorie count, they are 57 calories per biscuit, but that doesn’t mean anything to me, as I don’t look at things like that.
I love these biscuits and will be storing a box in my desk drawer from now on, perfect for a quick breakfast or a midday pick me up. If you want to give these breakfast biscuits a whirl for yourself, you can pick them up in Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s now where they are on introductory special offer.
