15 Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas

When our family first went gluten-free, I found breakfast to be one of the hardest meals when it came to planning. Often the mornings were busy, and I didn’t have time to prepare and cook a meal from start to finish. So, I started a list of gluten free breakfast ideas that I could refer back to when I was planning my grocery shopping and it helped a lot!

gluten free breakfast ideas

Now, I have 15 breakfast recipes to share with you, each of which has a step that can help you prepare beforehand so that you can make it quickly in the mornings. Some are sweet and some are savory, and they’re all delicious. All of the recipes are gluten free and dairy free, and some of them are vegan and nut free. Any of the recipes that call for almond milk can be substituted with another non-dairy milk if needed.

I’m going to keep updating this page as I develop new gluten free breakfast ideas and recipes so that you have a resource page to depend on. So, bookmark this page and check back for updates. 

15 Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas


Protein Breakfast Bowl

I always prepare the quinoa at the beginning of the week and then I have it for breakfasts, salads, or side dishes throughout the week as needed. Then you can prepare this super nutritious breakfast in just 5 minutes.


Gluten Free Rolls

I love starting the day with a freshly baked roll served with butter or jam and this recipe is one of our favorites. It stands alone or pairs nicely with eggs and other breakfast proteins.


Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

These pancakes are grain free and delicious! They’re almond flour based and offset the sugar crash that some people experience after having a carb heavy breakfast in the morning.


Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

This healthy and refreshing smoothie bowl is simple to make and your kids can do the “decorating” with toppings. I love how easy it is to sneak in extra nutrients inside the smoothie or in the toppings.


Sauteed Banana Apple Gluten Free Oatmeal

This oatmeal recipe takes 15 minutes to prepare and the natural sweetness of banana and apple means you don’t need to add any refined sugar. Talk about a mom win!



Chocolate Glazed Donuts

Everyone needs to splurge sometimes and have the donut! This recipe is grain free and vegan and healthier than most donut recipes, plus it’s simple and fun to make.



Berry Coconut Parfait

Another simple recipe that comes together in minutes on busy mornings. It’s so simple, that kids can make it for themselves as long as you have yogurt, strawberries and granola at home.


Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

The flavor of pumpkin pie is too good to be restricted to the Fall! We enjoy this recipe year round and it’s always a special treat when we make them.

Egg Muffin Cups

These are so great for busy mornings. I make them ahead of time, stick them in the fridge and then reheat them in the oven for a few minutes (microwave would work too) and that’s it. Practically instant on-the-go breakfast that’s loaded with veggies.


Bananas Foster French Toast 

This is the gluten free breakfast recipe we make most often for Sunday brunch. It takes longer than the others at 20 minutes to prep, but it is SO worth it! The flavors are amazing.


Acai Bowl

This is a refreshing way to start the day and it fills you up with superfoods! It’s simple to make and it’s another recipe that kids can help make.


Apple Cider Donuts

Oh I love how warm and comforting this recipe is! It’s best enjoyed hot out of the oven and it has healthier ingredients than most donuts.



Gluten Free Granola

This is literally THE BEST granola I’ve ever had and it’s simple to make! You can enjoy it by itself, or add it to smoothie bowls or yogurt to mix things up.

Strawberry Banana Muffins

This recipe is easy to prepare and it freezes well. Make it ahead of time and you’ve got yourself a satisfying, easy grab and go breakfast.



Protein Power Smoothie

Some mornings are too busy to sit down and eat at the table, and instead a drinkable breakfast that’s still going to fuel you is the way to go. In those cases, this Protein Power Smoothie is what you need.  Enjoy it as is, or add your favorite protein powder for an even bigger protein boost.
