Make-ahead gluten free breakfast ideas are a very valuable commodity. Here are 10 ideas for healthy, make-ahead breakfasts that your whole family will love!
Back-to-school means hectic mornings and mom-did-you-see-my-shoe and I-don’t-have-time-for-a-good-breakfast. But if you make it ahead, there’s always time for something to grab and go. Think of it this way: if you have any particularly messy eaters, let them scatter the crumbs out in the world instead of on your kitchen floor.
Let’s be real, though. My kids do sometimes eat cereal for breakfast on a school morning. I’m not Supermom! Sometimes, my cupboards are bare. But these 10 gluten free breakfast ideas can all be made ahead of time (stock your freezer!), and all are healthier than a bowl of cereal.
We can always use more make-ahead and quick-and-hearty breakfast ideas for busy school mornings, I always say. Each of my 3 children, with each of their different tastes and preferences, will eat and enjoy every single one of these 10 back-to-school gluten free breakfast goodies.
The perfect fluffy gluten free waffles made with yogurt and just a touch of sugar, with a lightly crisp outside. Enjoy them fresh and hot off the waffle iron, or freeze them and reheat in the toaster oven like Eggos—but way better! Make them ahead, stack ’em up and wrap tightly.
These flourless chocolate peanut butter muffins are unbelievably moist and tender, and packed with chocolate and peanut butter flavor. You simply won’t believe that they’re grain-free, with no added butter or oil.
These super healthy banana breakfast muffins are naturally gluten free, and made with no butter, no oil and no added refined sugars. Make the batter in the blender. How’s that for easy?
Oh, and if you hate cleaning the blender, let it clean itself. After pouring out the batter in the wells of a muffin tin, rinse out the blender, then add some soapy water and let it run for a few seconds. Clean blender!
Easy gluten free oatmeal breakfast cookies. Sweetened only with honey and a bit of applesauce, they’re the perfect make-ahead breakfast for a family on the go! Two of these babies each, and my kids are ready to conquer the world (not really but at least they’re full).
Cooked bacon, lightly scrambled eggs and shredded cheese, all baked into a simple gluten free biscuit packet. We all know that biscuits aren’t exactly health food, but the protein in those eggs and cheese is undeniable. Right?
These Paleo blueberry muffins are the healthy, low-carb gluten free breakfast solution you’ve been looking for. Made with coconut flour, but they’re not eggy, like baked goods made with coconut flour can tend to be. And the fiber-packed coconut flour is crazy filling.
Gluten free overnight oats are made with just rolled oats, some chia or flax seeds (to help thicken) and any sort of milk, and take less than 5 minutes of prep time. A fast, nutritious and filling breakfast, with endless flavor variations.
Just FYI, you can not make overnight oats with steel cut oats. Take my word for it. Three days in the refrigerator (I thought, okay maybe they’ll be 2- or 3-night overnight oats) later, and they were still inedible. *whomp whomp*
This chewy homemade granola bar recipe is endlessly customizable with different mix-ins and nuts. It’s a wee bit of a stretch to call it totally healthy, since the recipe calls for both brown sugar and a honey/maple syrup/molasses mixture. But it’s still packed with whole grains and good, healthy fats from nuts and seeds that keep you going all morning long.
A gluten free pancake mix that’s perfect for everything from pancakes and muffins to breakfast bakes. Ditch that box and D.I.Y. a better pancake, sister.
These lightly sweet Paleo breakfast cookies are packed with healthy fats and protein. This is one of my absolute favorite make-ahead breakfasts, since I feel great about what’s inside them (almond and coconut flours, raw nuts and seeds, coconut oil and eggs) and my kids think they’re actually eating “cookies” for breakfast. I liked them so much, I made a chocolate version, too!
