‘Breakfast’ – The most important meal of the day and also my favourite meal of the day! This post will give you plenty of gluten and milk free breakfast ideas which are all pretty easy to make. I hope you can get some inspiration from my breakfasts, especially for those newly diagnosed coeliacs who are struggling with breakfast inspiration. – Enjoy 🙂
Natures Path nice and nobbly gluten free granola with plain Alpro soya yoghurt, strawberries and honey – This is one of my favourite breakfasts to have at the moment, it’s quick, easy and tastes delicious as well as being perfect for the summer months. This granola is my all time favourite and I totally recommend trying this combination!

Keeping on the granola theme… Why not try making your own?
Homemade granola – My homemade granola recipe is super quick, easy and tastes delicious. It can be served with a dairy free yoghurt or even just a non dairy milk alternative. The recipe uses gluten free oats, walnuts, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, cranberries, maple syrup, coconut oil and cinnamon. Keep an eye on my blog for my recipe which will be coming soon!
For a cheaper granola alternative, try this raisin and almond granola from Aldi, which is perfect served with almond milk and berries.
My ultimate favourite almond milk which I use for absolutely everything is the Blue Diamond Unsweetened almond breeze. It’s low in calories and perfect for any sort of baking, hot drinks and with cereal!
Gluten free porridge – Gluten free porridge is one of my all time favourite breakfasts, perfect for those cold winter mornings when you are struggling to get our of your warm bed! The photo below is for my ‘apple pie oats’ made with gluten free oats, almond milk, cinnamon, chopped apple pieces, crushed walnuts, raisins and a dash of maple syrup.
You could also try this super easy, creamy porridge made with almond milk and topped with banana, a sprinkling of granola, pumpkin seeds and maple syrup.
My final porridge idea (Can you tell how much I love my porridge!) is topped with berries and drizzled in peanut butter – Delicious!
Peanut butter and banana on gluten free toast – A very quick and easy breakfast for those morning you are running late! I like to use either the Pip and Nut crunchy peanut butter or the Meridian crunchy peanut butter – Perfect with sliced banana and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
The bread used below is the gluten free Burgen soya and linseed.
Bircher Muesli – A new favourite breakfast of mine is the Moma bircher muesli in the raspberry and coconut flavour, which I picked up at the allergy and free from show a couple of weeks ago. This is a quick and easy version of over night oats which can be made in a matter of minutes! – I like to mix mine with alpro soya plain yoghurt and honey but you can also mix with apple juice!

Smoothies – If I’m not feeling as peckish in the morning but still fancy something I tend to go for a smoothie. My normal smoothie recipe includes a banana, frozen berries (Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) with almond milk and a few super food powders. My favourite’s are maca powder, chia seeds and flaxseed – Adding these powders to your smoothies are great because they contain plenty of vitamin’s and nutrient’s and you can’t even taste them!
Acai bowls – Acai bowls are thicker versions of smoothies which can be topped with various different fruit and nuts. To make my acai bowl I use the same ingredients as I put in my smoothies but add more frozen fruit to make it thicker. I also add a teaspoon of acai powder and blend it all up in my food processor. The end result is almost like an ice-cream consistency which is super refreshing for breakfast and can be topped with fruit, nuts, granola, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, chia seeds coconut flakes etc – go wild!
Crumpets – My favourite gluten and dairy free crumpets I have tried so far are the Newburn Bakehouse gluten and milk free ones (Closely followed by the Marks and Spencer’s version). I like to toast mine and then top with either a dairy free butter alternative or jam. The jam in the below photo is homemade by combining honey and frozen raspberries and heating on the hob until it forms a jam consistency. – Delicious and not full of refined sugar like most shop brought jams!
Genius pancakes – Before I was diagnosed Coeliac (a long time ago!) I used to love scotch pancakes for breakfast before school. The genius version are the nicest gluten free one’s that I have tried so far and are perfect topped with maple syrup and fruit, or even just with some dairy free butter.
Scrambled eggs on toast – For a more filling breakfast I like to have scrambled eggs on toast – Scrambled eggs are my favourite (For breakfast, lunch and dinner!) and are so quick and easy to make, setting you up for the day. The below photo uses the new Newburn Bakehouse tiger bloomer loaf which (in my opinion) is the best gluten free bread I have tried!
I also like to mix up my scrambled eggs by adding various extras. – Toast, avocado, falafel (This falafel is from Aldi and is delicious!), smoked salmon and baked beans.
Carrying on with the cooked breakfast theme – I love any form of bacon and eggs for breakfast. The below ‘eggy pots’ are my mums speciality and are made by wrapping bacon around eggs in ramequins and cooking in the oven. I had this with gluten free toast and baked beans.
Croissants – I think croissants and anything pastry related are the food that I miss most since becoming Coeliac (and milk intolerant). However the genius croissants have helped to suppress this! – They are delicious and a definite recommendation for a yummy Sunday morning breakfast!
Waffles – My gluten free waffle recipe is easy to make and a perfect weekend breakfast treat! They are gluten and dairy free and can be topped with anything you like. The below are topped with strawberries, bananas and maple syrup. If you would like the recipe please click below.
Gluten free cereal! – One of my newest favourite brands for gluten free cereal are Natures Path who have a huge range of gluten and dairy free (healthier alternative) cereals which are all delicious! Please click below if you would like to see a review.
I really hope that this post has given you some gluten and milk free breakfast inspiration! As you can probably tell, I love trying new breakfast ideas so if you have any of your own please let me know as I would love to try them out!
