Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it sets your metabolism for the entire day. Since it’s the most important, it should be packed with nutrients and delicious options. If you follow a plant-based diet, it may be even harder to find gluten-free, vegan breakfast options and still keep the gluten-free breakfast healthy. 

Another option is eating out. However, eating gluten-free food in restaurants is risky because of gluten cross-contamination. Many restaurants list gluten-free food on their menus, but they do not follow proper protocol on keeping their equipment free of gluten. Therefore, exposing you to gluten.

With this vast compilation of simple and easy 20 Gluten-Free Breakfast Ideas and brunch recipes, you can stop scratching your head in an attempt to find new gluten-free breakfast recipes and start eating delicious meals again.

Why not brighten up your morning with these delicious gluten-free breakfast ideas? 

Whether you’re eating breakfast on the go or running late for work, there are plenty of fast food alternatives out there ready to grab your attention. However, these are not always the best choices for us and our health, because of their high sugar and unhealthy fat content, such as artificial trans fats and saturated fats.

These gluten-free breakfast recipes will inspire you to make something different every day. Many of them come in handy on those days when you have only 5 minutes to get yourself and the children ready before rushing out of the front door to be on time at work or school. Others, you’ll enjoy as a make-ahead breakfast for a lazy weekend morning when you don’t feel like cooking or going out. They are created keeping health in mind, and many are plant-based. Enjoy!
