6 Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas

These 6 gluten free breakfast recipes will please the whole family! Move over, cardboard bread. Make these breakfasts to kickstart your day!

I understand how challenging mealtimes can be sometimes cooking for a child with a food allergy. With a gluten-free child and another who’s dairy-free, I try to make meals that the whole family will enjoy so I don’t have to make a special allergy-friendly meal. I think it makes my kids feel more included at mealtime, and it saves me a lot of time!

20 Strawberry Muffins

Strawberry Muffins

Looking for a yummy strawberry muffin recipe to use up your frozen strawberries? This is the perfect one!

Strawberry MuffinsMuffins are perfect year-round for a quick breakfast on-the-go or a sweet addition to an awesome school lunch. Don’t have time to whip these up from scratch? Check out this post and learn how to freeze muffins

From these warms muffins to a bowl of hot chili or soup, MOMables has enough recipes and ideas to see you through the fall—come and see! 

These muffins are very quick and easy to put together. You can have your kids help you out, and in no time, you’ll have some delicious muffins ready, straight out of the oven!

It may be difficult to wait, but trust me, you’ll want to let them cool down, or you’ll burn your tongue (not that I would know!). The turbinado sugar adds just a little bit of sweetness and crunch to the top of the muffin, which I particularly enjoy, but it is completely optional and can be omitted.

I usually prefer baking my muffins in either silicone baking cups, or directly in the pan, to reduce waste and to save money. For this recipe, I actually did have some liners in the pantry and decided to try out the recipe with them to see how they would bake. I determined that if you are using paper liners, I would add a bit of cooking spray to prevent the muffins from sticking, or you can scrape the stuck muffin parts off the liner with your teeth. My daughter prefers to do the latter.

But what happens when you get so excited that you make tons of batter? Well, freeze it for a quick breakfast for tomorrow or the next day! See How to Freeze Muffins here!

These muffins are also perfect to put inside your lunch box!

crustless broccoli and cheddar quiche muffins

Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche “Muffins”

crustless broccoli and cheddar quiche muffins
  • Author: MOMables.com
  • Yield: 3
  • Category: Breakfast, Lunch

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked broccoli florets, chopped small (from frozen or fresh)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half, milk, or non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Colby Jack, or Gouda make great options)
  • Butter or oil for muffin pan

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. (If you don’t have extra cooked broccoli handy, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil, then add the broccoli florets and cook for 1 minute. Drain, blot dry, and chop).
  3. Butter or grease 6 to 8 muffin cups (you can choose to skip this for silicone cups). Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir in the cheese and broccoli. (Option: Divide the cheese and broccoli evenly into 6 to 8 portions and place in greased muffin cups instead).
  5. Ladle the egg mixture evenly into the muffin cups. Leave at least 1/4 inch of space at the tops. (If using a silicone muffin pan or silicone cups, place on a baking sheet first.)
  6. Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.

Notes

For different taste combinations, you can add 1/2 cup chopped grilled or sauteed onion, or 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped green onions or chives.
You can substitute other leftover or extra veggies for the broccoli, or use a combination. Chopped spinach, zucchini, peas, or cauliflower also make great kid-friendly alternatives, and mixing in chopped carrots and tomatoes can create a fun twist. But really, anything works if it’s something you’d enjoy with eggs!

Nutrition

  • Serving Size: 2 muffin cups

These can also be made ahead and stored for later! If you’re not eating them all right away, let them cool for 15 to 20 minutes before putting them in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last 3 to 7 days that way.

To freeze, divide into pairs (or whatever serving size you want) and put into freezer bags. (To save on high-cost freezer bags, I use cheaper small baggies for individual servings. Then put THEM into a larger freezer bag. I can usually keep re-using the outer bag, since it doesn’t get dirty touching the food!) The night before you want to eat them (or 2 to 3 days before) place them in the fridge to thaw.

To reheat, microwave thawed muffins for 2 minutes per pair.

DIY Pancake Mix

Do you ever want a homemade pancake mix that isn’t full of all of those unknown ingredients you get in the boxed versions?

diy pancake make

There is something so wonderful about pancakes for breakfast! Our entire family loves breakfast foods. Breakfast for dinner is quite common, and if it were up to me, I could eat breakfast three times a day! One of our favorite breakfast meals is pancakes.

Sometimes I make them from scratch, but other times, especially in the morning, I reach for that boxed pancake mix. Everything is already mixed, and it just comes together so much faster. Plus, I’m not a morning person, so I’m going with what is easier. Here at MOMables, we’ve done the work for you so that you can go with easier too—the homemade version.

When you stop to think about it, what is really in that box? The basic ingredients for pancakes are all the same. So why not make your own boxed pancake mix? I finally did it, and let me tell you, I am never going back to the box! Not only are these mixes easy to put together, it ends up saving you money. You can even have your kids help out to make the mixes too so you can stock up your pantry!

Leftover pancakes (if there are any) could easily be put into a lunch for the next day.
