TOP 10 Best Gluten Free Breakfast Recipes


So you have gone gluten free and now you need gluten free breakfast recipes? Well read on! I’m going to share my top ten best gluten free breakfast recipes with you right now. Most are easy peasy, family friendly. But the last three gluten free breakfast recipes will be a bit special, but so delicious you will want to spend the time making them. Ok, let’s get started with recipe number one of my top ten gluten free breakfast recipes.


Going gluten free does not mean giving up your breakfast favourites, not with these gluten free breakfast recipes. This one is such a no brainer, super simple and sure to delight everyone as a quick mid week breakfast option or a lazy weekend brunch add-in. As a bonus, you can use up any overripe bananas you might have sitting around on the bench. Serve with berries and cream for extra yum factor.

The recipe for this low fuss, gluten free banana bread breakfast is right here. It’s got easy to find ingredients and it’s something you can make with your kids on a Sunday morning. Then use the remainder for school lunches come Monday.



What list of gluten free breakfast recipes would be complete without a gluten free granola? So here is my special, homemade gluten free granola recipe. Adapted from Sarah Wilson’s popular Coco Nutty Granola (see photo) this can be made ahead of time and stored for several weeks in an airtight container.  Add some yogurt to the top and some homemade stewed/poached fruit and you are good to go.

  • 3 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste/extract
  • 1 cup raw buckwheat kernels or buckinis 
  • 3 cups total of any nuts (we love a combo of macadamias, hazelnuts almonds & pecans)
  • 3 tablespoons rice malt syrup
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil

Preheat oven to 150 C. Process dry ingredients in a food processor until your ideal consistency (less processing for chunkier granola) Add coconut oil and rice malt syrup and process quickly until combine. Spread evenly on trays lined with baking paper on a tray and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until golden, continuing to turn over with a fork during the baking process. Once golden (the darker it is, the crunchier it is), remove and cool to get it crispy.




Fancy pancakes or waffles but you want the convenience of a premix? Look what Melinda’s got for you! Gluten free pancake mix, with the bonus of being lower carb with just 5.3g carbs per serve. Serve with butter and jam, or fresh cream and berries. One 170g pack creates the same amount of pancakes as a standard shaker pancake, minus the gluten, carbs, sugar and chemicals! A total win win. And one the kids will love too. Grab your box from any Melinda’s suppliers – check the postcode finder for your local physical store and view a list of online stores here

Sometimes the morning goes downhill and you use the time dedicated to breakfast to find the a) lost shoe b) clean up cat puke or c) console a child that doing PE  at school is not the end of the world. So you need a fast, in a glass breakfast to go.

Here are smoothie options, all gluten free and guaranteed to perk you up to face the world post home disasters. There are 16 fab smoothies here, so you are sure to find one that works for you and with the ingredients you have to hand. My fav is the orange banana breakfast smoothie. I have one of those single serve baby blenders that blends straight into the glass drinking bottle so it’s a super quick fix and allows me not to miss breakfast.



A bit like a smoothie, but in a bowl and with more power packed gluten free goodness to get you thru your morning and beyond. A cafe craze that we now make at home is the acai bowl. So what is acai anyway?

It’s a berry from the acai palm trees found in South American rainforest. The small berry is mostly seed, but the fleshy part is packed with plenty of vitamins and other nutrients. So it got the tag of a ‘superfood’, which is a bit of marketing nonsense really. So this recipe uses an acai puree, but it works just as well with a powder, just up your choice of milk a little to compensate. Kids and adults alike love this colourful breakfast bowl and it certainly gets your morning off to a great start!




An updated take on a plain omelette, this feta and semi dried tomato omelette will be a crowd pleaser. Prep time is only five minutes, add another five for cooking and you will be sitting down to a hearty, yummy breakfast in less than 15 minutes.

If you don’t have feta to hand, then substitute with goats cheese or the ever reliable tasty cheese. When serving at brunch add some bacon and green leaves to the side for a complete meal.



This bacon and egg quiche takes a bit more time than an omelette so is best left the weekend, or prepared the night before. The spinach in it adds nutritional punch and colour all at once. Serve for a weekend brunch with a decent dollop of sour cream and tomato relish.





This is a great dish to make ahead of time and then you can pack up the esky for a breakfast picnic in the great outdoors. There is nothing much nicer than heading out early to the beach, beating the traffic, getting the surfside picnic table and then chowing down on this loaded cauliflower bake. You can warm it on a bbq plate, or eat it cold. It’s a tasty gluten free breakfast recipe for sure. Plus it will set you up for a great session on the boogy board.


Just like the name suggests, these beautiful gluten free darlings are surrounded by a white, fluffy cloud of egg white goodness with the flavour coming from ham and parmesan cheese. Cloud eggs are a twist on baked eggs, so while it’s a bit more time consuming, it’s definitely worth the wait. When you cut into that barely set yolk and it oozes golden goodness into the white cloud it is a significant breakfast moment. Bet you eat more than one.


Well, that’s my top ten gluten free breakfast recipes. Everything from super easy, to super fancy. Which will be your favourite? Have I missed your go to gluten free breakfast recipes? Let me know in the comments as it’s great to try something that has been personally recommended. As always I wish you well as you explore gluten free eating now and into the future, cheers Mel.

    After your waffles, my favourite GF breakfast is made overnight in a slow cooker, so breakfast is ready when we wake up!
    Tapioca Pudding
    200g sago (large/small; we prefer small);
    60g (or to taste) sugar of choice eg coconut sugar or 2-3 tbs Stevia/combo
    2 litres milk of choice (cow, coconut, almond or combo);
    1-2 tsp vanilla essence or 1 tbs rosewater (Cortas brand is best; try a Greek or Middle Eastern deli);
    Ground cinnamon, nutmeg;
    2 eggs, lightly beaten (optional).
    Place all ingredients except the vanilla, egg if using and spices in a crock pot/slow cooker, mix. Put slow cooker on Low. Go to bed. Next morning, breakfast is ready! Add vanilla and beaten eggs; blend to combine.
    Serve in small bowls, sprinkled with cinnamon/nutmeg.
    Alternative #1: If you don’t have a crock pot, put in saucepan on stove and cook gently until milk is absorbed, about 1½ hours.
    Alternative #2: soak overnight and cook on the stove for only a few minutes in the morning.

    Serve warm/cold.
    Serves 4-6.
    N.B. (Can also be made as a dessert)
