Do you know what gluten free breakfast recipes you will make for your mother on Mother’s Day or any day? Here are some of my favorite Mother’s Day breakfast ideas (or for the morning!!) to get you started. These recipes are easy to make with your kids to surprise Mom.

Breakfast is always a big celebration at our house. Every year my kids like to make me breakfast in bed. My kids are old enough that they can make some more challenging recipes.

Here are my best, no-fuss, easy gluten free breakfast recipes that are sure to please your whole family! I pulled together several breakfast categories, including gluten free scones, donuts, muffins, egg dishes, waffles, and pancakes.

You can see  ALL of my Gluten Free Breakfast Recipes on the blog for further inspiration.

I include all the popular recipes from my blog and Mr. Fearless Dining’s favorite gluten-free cinnamon rolls with a peanut butter glaze. The men in our house go wild over peanut butter…but then again, I do too!

What breakfasts are gluten free?

If you are new to gluten free, you may wonder what you can eat for breakfast. There are so many delicious options; with my easy recipes, baked things like muffins, scones, and pancakes are a breeze. Many of my gluten free baked foods are also freezable, so you can make extras and freeze them always to have a gluten free breakfast on hand.

If you want to make a family project for mom, why not plant some kitchen herbs that grow in the kitchen window?

What flour is best for gluten free baking?

The gluten free flour brands I use most are King Arthur, Bob’s Red Mill, and Authentic Foods. These gluten free flour blends include Xanthan Gum, one of the most common binders in gluten free baking. I wrote an article on my favorite gluten free flour blends and which recipes each blend works best in.

If you can’t have xanthan or guar gum, try my DIY Gluten Free Flour Blend. It is an easy to mix up gum-free gluten free flour blend.

I always recommend checking out My Gluten Free Pantry Guide for advice on the equipment needed for gluten free cooking and baking.

What are gluten free breakfast foods?

There are so many gluten free breakfast foods you can enjoy. Most standard breakfast foods can be made gluten free. With my recipes, nobody will know breakfast is gluten free :-).

What can you eat for breakfast besides eggs?

Besides the typical eggs, you can enjoy granola and baked oatmeal (use certified gluten free oats!), muffins and scones, and sweet bread like this Gluten Free Zucchini Bread. Chia pudding is also popular, and it can be made easily before bedtime, so it is ready when you wake up.

Are scrambled eggs gluten free?

If you make the scrambled eggs home, you know they will be gluten free. I never thought much about scrambled eggs until we went to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico for vacation. They added flour to their scrambled eggs. After discovering this the hard way,

I found some restaurants here in the U.S. will add flour to eggs…if you are dining out, it is very important to talk to the wait staff or chef to ensure your eggs are safe. My gluten free dining tips can help you know what to look for when dining out.
