The Very Best Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipes (so far)

The Very Best Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipes (so far)

Merry Christmas Eve Day! As you wrap and bake and cook and hug (& sing along with Barry Manilow at the top of your lungs)—I know you. You’re also planning one perfectly gorgeous Christmas breakfast. The best breakfast of the year. Well, since I specialize in all manner of gluten-free breakfast treats, I gathered together my all-time favorite breakfast recipes on the blog. And a few of them are even preview recipes from my new cookbook, Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy! Don’t have a copy yet? What are you waiting for? This time of year, you need quick & easy for every meal and every occasion—more than ever!

Here’s a clickable collage of the very best gluten-free breakfast recipes (so far). Hover over each photo to see the title, and click to open a new window with the post & recipe. Clickable collages are so fancy, aren’t they? At least I feel fancy. Sometimes, that matters most:

A bunch of different types of food

Slightly shameful confession: I make all of these recipes for my family (along with every blog and cookbook recipe), and barely get a bite in myself. But when I make the Maple Almond Granola (middle column, last row), I don’t share. With almost anyone. And I don’t feel guilty at all. Except a teeny tiny bit. But mostly, not at all.

Merry Christmas, my friends!

Love,
Me


P.S.
Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy! Yes, you totally need Quick & Easy, even if you already have the first one! And it makes a great gift. ;)

    I am totally blown away by the care and craft put into the first book and just ordered the second. Looking forward to much cooking joy in my future. Thank you!

    I bought both cookbooks from Amazon and just reviewed them both. I say that you have far exceeded ANY expectations I ever had for Gluten Free Cooking! I have made several absolutely amazing things that I have taken and shared at church pot luck, etc. and everyone loves them! I think I will stop even telling people they are Gluten Free! They don’t care….they just love eating my goodies! Made the banana blueberry muffins for breakfast this morning and my husband’s eyes really lit up. He does not have a gluten problem. He thought they were amazing! Thank you, thank you!!

    Hi Nicole,
    I have had both of your books on my wish list for Christmas as I have been recently diagnosed as gluten sensitive. Today I was able to purchase both books at B&N with a gift certificate from my husband. I can’t wait to try many of the recipes in the cookbooks. Thanks for all of the great recipes and giving us all choices for real food again. You are wonderful!

    I got both cookbooks from the library three weeks ago and have been steadily working through them with FANTASTIC results each and every time. Thank you so much!  Yay for me, my very own copies were waiting for me under the Christmas tree from my husband. Now I can cook up a storm and the library can breathe a sigh of relief that I won’t spill any more ingredients on their copies!

    These are the most bizarre things to have for breakfast surely ;-) only in America they say :-). I might just have them for snacks.  I just love love love your recipes, have both your books sitting next to my stove and oven!

    Nicole thank you so much for being part of my gluten free family this past year! When it was just me GF I adored you…now that my 6 yr old is also GF, I would be lost without you! You have made it possible for him to still feel like a normal kid. He loves your receipes and is very patient with mommy when try new things! This week I finally made the sugar cookies w/ frosting and they are a HUGE hit. He would eat them morning, noon and night…as would his brothers who are not GF. Thank you for helping me  and helping me , help him to feel that just b/c he needs to be GF he can still enjoy so much! As a mom that means the world to me and I can’t thank you enought!

      I second the request for gf golden grahams. They were a favorite of mine before I went gf. :) This is a cereal I’d probably have the patience to make.

    I forgot to mention- I got the new cookbook for Christmas and spent some quality time tabbing it up. Lots and lots of tabs. I will be very busy cooking! I think the first thing I will make are the English muffins. They used to be my favorite breakfast before I went gf, and I have really missed them.
    I was at Bed, Bath and Beyond today and broke down and bought a doughnut maker dirt cheap. Can’t wait to try out the doughnuts this week. 
    Oh-  and I am going to use your soft sugar cookie recipe to make some Italian anise cookies. (they look very similar in texture) I am going to sub anise extract for the vanilla and frost them with the powdered sugar/milk/anise extract glaze from the original recipe. Mmmmmm!
    Thanks for the great recipes!

    My family is Italian, and we make ravioli every year for Christmas. I haven’t been able to have any in years, but got your first cookbook before Christmas and made the cheese ravioli. OMG!!! They were a-ma-zing!! My gluten-eating husband and daughter said the ravioli taste just like my Gma’s! I did use her sauce recipe, which is always good, but next time I may be less lazy and make her high-maintenance meat and spinach filling.  Thank you thank you! Now I just have to make myself a sourdough baguette (haven’t tried the sourdough recipe yet, but I will) so I can have garlic bread too.

    Funny, I’m just seeing this now, but great minds because I had a batch of your awesome pumpkin scones frozen and ready to pop in the oven Xmas morning – and I’m Jewish! Ha. But still, my husband isn’t and we did have our first tree this year, so having a proper Xmas breakfast seemed appropriate :)

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday, Nicole, and all your readers too!

    I’ve just heard about your next book. So excited about that! Breads are really the Achilles heel on GF baking. I’m coming to NY (I’m from Brazil!) just to participate in GF baking classes. You should consider giving classes! ;)

    Merry Christmas!  I made your pumpkin scones this morning for Christmas breakfast.  They were wonderful.  I have both your cookbooks and am so thankful for your wonderful recipes.  Wishing you and your family many blessings in the coming new year.
