One of the things I love to share with my readers is that gluten free can be easy and still taste great. It does not have to be complicated or expensive and it can taste as good as the real thing. Yes, gluten free can be all that.
Changing your diet, or someone in your family’s diet, to gluten free can be overwhelming and challenging. There are so many foods that you can no longer have, but there are also so many foods that you can still have. My first tip to anyone going gluten free is to focus on what you can have because there really is so much that is still safe to eat.
Breakfast foods are one of the areas that people often feel overwhelmed with when it come to gluten free. So many breakfast foods are full of gluten. Cold cereals, granola, frozen waffles, your favorite pancake mix, and frozen breakfast sandwiches are all fast and easy, but full of gluten. And grabbing something out to eat for breakfast can be even more challenging.
With a little thinking ahead though, and some reading of labels, it is possible to have quick and easy gluten free breakfasts that your whole family will enjoy.
Today I am sharing a few of my family’s favorite gluten free breakfasts. They are all easy to make and taste great. Many of them can also be made ahead and frozen to make busy mornings even easier.
If you are struggling with serving your family, or guests, a gluten free breakfast give some of these a try.
Eggs are one of my favorite gluten free breakfasts. They are naturally gluten free and can be made in so many different ways. You can fry them, scramble them, making them into omelets and even make eggs cups with them. I also like to make a big batch of boiled eggs up for my kids to grab during the week for a quick breakfast. And even though eggs have gone up quite a bit in price over the last few years, they are still a pretty inexpensive high protein breakfast to serve.
I recently shared twelve gluten free baked oatmeal recipes. As long as you use gluten free oats and read labels on ingredients like chocolate, baked oatmeal is a great gluten free breakfast. It also freezes great so it works well for making ahead. I also like to make a big batch on the weekends and we just reheat it throughout the week.
Gluten Free Granola
Gluten free granola is another favorite at our house. We don’t eat a lot of boxed cereal, but my kids love granola. Udi’s has some delicious gluten free granolas, but because of my daughter’s nut allergy we like to make our own homemade granola. Either way gluten free granola served with milk or yogurt is a simple gluten free breakfast. It also works great to take with you when traveling for an easy breakfast or snack.
Who doesn’t love cookies for breakfast? But these cookies are a pretty healthy breakfast for busy mornings or on the go. My kids love them for breakfast. They are easy to make gluten free by using gluten free oats.
Gluten Free Bagels
My kids love Udi’s Gluten Free Bagels. We love them with cream cheese, butter, and/or jam. But we also love to turn them into a breakfast sandwich by putting an egg, cheese, and either sausage, ham, or bacon on them. They make a fun gluten free breakfast sandwich!
Pancakes muffins make a great gluten free breakfast. The blueberry ones are one of our favorites, but you can make them using your favorite gluten free pancake batter or mix. Pancake muffins are less messy than pancakes usually are, so they work great for kids. They also work great for making ahead and freezing for quick breakfasts during the week.
Gluten free waffles are another breakfast that my kids love. The brown sugar ones are a recent favorite. I love them because they have great flavor on their own, so they don’t really need any toppings or syrup. Which makes for a quick, easy, and less messy breakfast. These freeze great also.
Breakfast burritos are another great make ahead and free breakfast. You can make homemade ones with For an even easier breakfast keep Udi’s Breakfast Burritos on hand. I recently picked up a few of these and my girls loved them.
Have you seen those egg and sausage bowls in the freezer section? Some of you have probably bought them before. Did you know you can easily make your own and make them gluten free? Yes, homemade breakfast bowls are easy to make. They also freeze great. I like to freeze them in small individual sized containers that is easy for one person just to grab, heat, and eat.
I would love to hear some of your favorite easy gluten free breakfasts. Do you have any favorites?
