Have the best healthy start to your day with these tasty gluten free breakfast ideas! If you can’t have gluten because you’re gluten intolerant or celiac and have gluten allergy you need to save this collection of easy gluten-free breakfast recipes. They’re so tasty and you will love the variety.
You’ve got everything here – gluten-free recipes for breakfast sandwiches and toasts, breakfasts with eggs, eggless breakfasts, healthy flourless pancakes and muffins, as well as great breakfast recipes to grab and go!
As you will notice, many of the gluten-free baking and pancake recipes on this list are made with oats instead of flour. While oats are a grain, they’re actually naturally gluten-free and a great healthy food to enjoy on a gluten free diet. In fact, as I found out from this article, research has shown that most people with celiac can tolerate oats pretty well, even when enjoyed every single day. And they can reap the benefits too! (study)
However, when doing groceries, do make sure to buy certified gluten-free oats, since common varieties are often processed in the same facilities as wheat, and can be contaminated with gluten – thus might not be safe to eat if you have gluten intolerance or wheat allergy.
Now, let’s get started with these amazing gluten free meals to enjoy for breakfast!
Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwiches and Toasts

- 6 sweet apples
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 2/3 cup oats
- 2/3 cup pecans
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tsp honey
- Chop the apples and saute them in a pan with the rest of the ingredients at medium-high. I covered the pan for 2-3 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 180C/350F.
- Put all crumble ingredients into your food processor (blender or immersion blender might work too), add a splash of water (about 1 tbsp), and process until you get a crumbly mixture that sticks together.
- Use a small baking pan, oil the surface or add parchment paper and spread the apples. Then squeeze the crumble mixture to form bigger pieces of crumble and spread these over the apples.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown.
- Let cool off a little bit and enjoy with some milk/yogurt for breakfast or ice cream for dessert.
