Eating gluten free doesn’t have to mean that your breakfast options are limited. You aren’t destined to live a life devoid of pancakes, muffins, or waffles. There are lots of options out there for gluten free breakfasts.

People avoid gluten for a number of different reasons. Some have Celiac disease and cannot have gluten. Others avoid gluten due to sensitivities they have to it and others avoid it because a diet low in gluten makes them feel better and is less harsh on their digestive systems.

If you are part of the one in five people in America that are eating gluten free, stick around. Today we’re talking about 10 gluten free breakfast ideas that are sure to please you and make the most important meal of the day one that you look forward to. Before we get started though, take a look at this list of ten gluten free foods you need in your kitchen to be successful in your quest to avoid gluten.

Ten Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas

Protein-rich foods are often great gluten free options. Eggs, oatmeal, and Greek yogurt are standard go-tos for many people, especially those who are eating gluten free or avoiding gluten when possible. Here are a few favorites that many people think of when faced with coming up with a gluten free breakfast idea.

Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a great breakfast option. They are quick (do the work the night before and they’re ready for you in the morning) and versatile. The combinations of toppings are endless.

This recipe uses chia seeds, gluten free old fashioned oats, and any kind of milk as the base for the oats. From here, you can add anything you want. Peanut butter, fruit, nuts, yogurt, cocoa. The sky is the limit!

Gluten Free Breakfast Burritos

Use gluten free tortillas to create a breakfast burrito. Start with eggs and add your favorite breakfast foods. Potatoes, bacon, avocado, peppers, mushrooms. You can’t go wrong here. Top it all off with a splash of hot sauce and enjoy!

Breakfast burritos are also a great option to make ahead and freeze. Just pop them in the microwave for a minute or two in the morning, and you’ll have a hot breakfast ready to go.

Gluten Free Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is another great make-ahead option. Baked oatmeal takes everything you love about oatmeal and bakes it together to make a delicious treat you eat with a fork instead of a spoon. Use gluten free oats, brown sugar, honey or agave, and go crazy with your toppings.

Mix in bananas and blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries and some chocolate chips. Make the baked oatmeal at the beginning of the week and heat it up each morning for breakfast.

Crustless Quiche

This quiche recipe uses eggs, gluten free flour, and cheese as the base. Add the vegetables of your choice. Peppers, onions, mushrooms, even broccoli and carrots. Bake it all together and you end up with a hearty, protein-rich breakfast.

Greek Yogurt Parfait With Gluten Free Granola

Top Greek yogurt with berries and this homemade granola. This granola is made with gluten free rolled oats, honey, almond, and vanilla. The granola is low in sugar, easy to make, and much cheaper than what you can buy at the grocery store!

Now that you’ve gotten some recipes for the usual gluten free options, let’s talk about more traditional breakfast. You know, the carb-heavy, dripping with syrup breakfasts we all love.

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins with Almond Crumble

Eating gluten free doesn’t mean you have to give up your beloved blueberry muffins. This recipe uses almond and arrowroot flour and fresh blueberries and is topped with a crunchy almond crumble.

Gluten Free Cranberry Orange Scones

These gluten free scones use tangy cranberries, orange juice, honey, and are drizzled with a white chocolate glaze. You can’t go wrong with breakfast food topped with chocolate, right?

Two Ingredient Pancakes

Yes, you really can make pancakes with just two ingredients. This recipe uses eggs and banana and cooks the pancakes using a little coconut oil. That’s it!

Of course, you can add a few things to the pancakes to spice them up a little, including pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and vanilla. But you can totally just leave it at eggs and bananas to have a quick and easy breakfast. Top them with homemade syrup to make them really delicious.

Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles

Do you stare longingly at your waffle maker, dreaming of days where you could enjoy homemade Belgian waffles at home? Dream no more. This gluten free waffle recipe makes fluffy delicious waffles that taste just like you remember. Top with berries, peaches, syrup, or a little Greek yogurt and enjoy!

Gluten Free Breakfast Wraps

A unique spin on breakfast burritos, gluten free breakfast wraps use gluten free tortillas and toppings of your choice to make an easy, make ahead and freeze, and grab on your way out the door breakfast option. Try them with Greek yogurt, gluten free granola, and raspberry jam. Or use some leftover oats and add peanut butter, banana, and dark chocolate chips. Eat them fresh or freeze for later.

I know I promised you 10 of the best gluten free breakfast ideas, but I have to leave you with one more.

Peanut butter cup pancakes sound like dessert for breakfast, right? These pancakes use natural peanut butter, cocoa, and almond milk to create a pancake that is so decadent you will never know it is gluten free (and you can even make them vegan as well).
