I discovered this great healthy product and idea at Sydney’s Eveleigh Market. A Saturday feast of culinary delights…
Fine Fettle’s FLATS are nibbles made by selecting fruits, nuts, seeds, spices and vegetable then squishing them into a flat, dry sheet, to finally cut into bite size squares. It is a fun “dip scooper”, a healthy and delicious lunch-box treat and the occasional afternoon or French apéritif snack.
The makers insist that these are not baked or fried, just flattened and dried for a healthier results. Launched in 2009, it is a small but growing Australian owned company, based in Sydney. They sell on markets and in specialised retail stores all across Australia, you will also find their products on Qantas domestic flights.
Their moto is to create nibbles entirely made of natural ingredients and with minimal processing. Their main technique is slow dehydration at low temperature. This helps retain nutritional goodness and keeps the original taste of the fruits and veggies. It is all no-GM and gluten free.
These FLATS are delicious, unexpected and a bit crazy. I love them!
If you don’t know Eveleigh Market, please squeeze a visit in your planning, it is well worth the trip. And try these flats!
My absolute favourite is Spicy Capsicum. It is really tasty, interesting and goes very well with a dill dip or a hummus.
I really liked Onion & Sunflower and also Spiced Pear & Hazelnut and I haven’t tried them all!
Fine Fettle sells all sorts of very nice healthy snacks. I also tried FLECKS. In a little packet you will find seeds, nuts and vegetables soaked it in a marinade made only of natural ingredients, then dried. They are wonderful healthy nibbles you can also sprinkle over salad, dip, soup to give it a bit of crunch and flavour. Forget your packs of chips, keep a few of those in your bag :)
