A gluten free lunch buffet using new Schar products (& GIVEAWAY opportunity!)

I have recently been very lucky to have the chance to try lots of new gluten free products by Schar! If you haven’t already heard of Schar, they are Europe’s largest free from brand, specialising in a huge range of gluten free bread, bakery products and snacks. Last weekend I used the new range of products to create a gluten free lunch buffet for myself and my (also coeliac) family. Information about all the products I used can be found below! For more information about Schar, click here to be directed to their website. 

I am also giving you the opportunity to win 14 of Schar’s newest products, details of how to enter can be found at end of this post! 

My gluten free lunch buffet using Schar products:









Here are the 14 new Schar products I used for the lunch buffet, clicking on each product will take you to the Schar website to purchase the product:

Note: All of the below mentioned products are gluten free and the majority also dairy free. The products that do contain milk will be flagged below.

Panini rolls 

These delicious panini rolls are gluten and milk free and taste just like the real thing! After 10 minutes in the oven, they come out perfectly crispy and can be filled with a sweet or savoury option. I used mine to make gluten and dairy free BLT’s which went down very well! The panini rolls are also low Fodmap, do not contain egg and come in a pack of 3.

Available in: Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Booths.

Hamburger buns 

If you are struggling to find a gluten free roll that doesn’t taste dry and stodgy, look no further! These gluten and dairy free (also vegan) hamburger rolls are perfect for BBQ’s and taste amazing! I filled mine with gluten free sausages.

Available in: Waitrose, Asda and Morrisons.

Pizza bases 

Schar also sell gluten and dairy free pizza bases which are perfect for making a quick and easy lunch or dinner! Simply add pizza sauce, cheese (or a dairy free cheese alternative) and toppings of your choice and cook in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Also perfect for making to take to work or school the next day! I made 2 gluten free pizzas, 1 using normal cheese and the other with a dairy free alternative. These pizza bases are also egg free and low fodmap!

Available in: Asda, Morrisons, The Co-op and Booths.

Deli Style Sourdough bread

This amazing new gluten and dairy free deli style sourdough bread is made with chestnut, linseed and quinoa flour and is the perfect gluten free loaf! I toasted the loaf for my lunch buffet and served with a variety of different savoury toppings including hummus, smashed avocado, chopped vegetables, olives and Italian meats. I have also been loving this bread for breakfast topped with peanut butter and banana (see below)!

Available in: Tesco. 




Note: Contains milk 

Another new Schar product that everyone is talking about are these new toaster waffles! Unfortunately, due to the waffles containing milk I was unable to try them however, they went down very well with the rest of my (also Coeliac) family and disappeared very quickly! These waffles would be perfect topped with banana, peanut butter, berries, maple syrup or chocolate sauce!

Available in: Tesco. 


Mix it! Universal flour 

This gluten free universal flour is perfect for both sweet and savoury dishes along with being milk free and egg free! I used the flour to make a delicious gluten free Victoria sponge using the recipe posted over on Schar’s website (however using dairy free butter instead of normal butter to make it dairy free)! Click here for the recipe.

Available in: Waitrose.

This new wholesome vitality loaf is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, low FODMAP and is the perfect loaf of bread!

Perfect toasted and served with a delicious gluten free fry up!
