Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka Honey

In association with Rowse Honey

Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka Honey
We’ve gone a bit wrap crazy in our house of late so when
Rowse Honey got in touch asking if I’d like to develop a superfood breakfast with their Manuka Honey I knew just what I had to make! Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka Honey have a layer of cream cheese (soft cheese), rows of sliced banana and walnuts which are finished off with a generous drizzle of Manuka Honey. I can’t tell you what a winning flavour combination this is, my hubby and I loved these wraps, the earthy Manuka Honey compliments the cream cheese, banana and walnut perfectly

Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka Honey

These Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka Honey are the perfect healthy start to the day as bananas contain potassium which aid concentration so if someone in your household is doing exams this would be the perfect breakfast before revising. Walnuts are very nutritious too with their high levels a type of vitamin E beneficial to heart health plus their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytonutrients have been shown to decrease the risk of certain cancers including prostate and breast cancer. Cream cheese is a great source of calcium which we need for healthy bones and the seeded wraps a good source of fibre. Then of course the Manuka Honey has many known health benefits due to its antibacterial properties and is believed to boost the immune system amongst many other things.

Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka Honey
Real Manuka honey comes from New Zealand and is farmed using bees that feed from the nectar of the Manuka tree. All honey has antibacterial activity however Manuka honey has an extra, different type of antibacterial action known as Non-Peroxide Activity (NPA). The antibacterial action is reliant on Methylglyoxal (MGO) which is less affected by heat, light, acidity, moisture and oxygen. This means that its antibacterial properties are far more robust than traditional honey.

Breakfast Pinwheel Wraps with Manuka HoneySo how can you be sure that the Manuka honey that you buy is genuine? It’s been well documented in the media that 6,500 tonnes is reported to be sold worldwide every year and yet only 2,500 to 3,000 tonnes of real Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand annually. I think this has been at the back of my mind when I’ve seen Manuka honey on the shelves of my local supermarket as I’ve wanted to try it out on my daughter for her hayfever and allergies. So the good news is that Rowse have started a Campaign for Real Manuka Honey as there are currently no guidelines in the UK as to how much MGO Manuka honey should contain so you could be buying very low grade Manuka (or worse) without knowing. Rowse have graded the level of NPA in all their Manuka honey with a +5, +10 or +15 rating so you know exactly what you are getting. The honey is tested twice, first at source New Zealand and then again when it arrives in the UK. Lets hope this testing becomes standard across the industry!

  11. Kate - gluten free alchemist

    Good to hear that Rowse are fighting for standards….. It often crosses my mind that the honey on the shelf could be any old honey masquerading as Manuka but because it has a security label attached we are being duped!
    I often have wraps filled with nuts and fruit, but the addition of the honey sounds lovely x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kate, yes that has always been my worry too so I’m really pleased Rowse are campaigning to tighten up standards!

    What is special about Manuka Honey?

    These look amazing… and sound delicious!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Glenn, they really are delicious:-)

  25. Jacqueline Meldrum

    Manuka honey is so good as well as healthy. I always think it almost has a caramel flavour. I make pinwheel wraps for lunch, but never thought of them for breakfast. Nice idea.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jacs, yes we’ve gone pinwheel mad lately:-)

  26. Laura Tovey

    This sound lovely!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Laura, they really are:-)

  27. William Gould

    This looks great! Be careful everyone when you buy Manuka honey as apparently there’s about 10 times as much sold than is actually harvested!!!!!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks William and yes I do address this fake issue which is why the double testing of Rowse Manuka is so reassuring.

  28. Paul Wilson

    Looks delicious.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Paul:-)
