Good Morning, Sunshine! Dairy and Gluten Friendly Breakfast Ideas

Alright, fam.

It can be hard for many to imagine delicious breakfast without any dairy or gluten! The coffee creamer, pancakes, toast, baked goods… It’s tough letting it all go. But I’m telling you, it’s possible to still have a delicious breakfast.

I’m a huge breakfast fan so I knew that this was going to be mission #1 in my dairy/gluten-free lifestyle.

First, there are some breakfast staples that I buy (at WinCo, nonetheless) that I always keep stocked in my pantry:

Franz Gluten Free Bread (I like the Whole Grain and Cinnamon Raisin)

Bisquick Gluten Free Pancake Mix 

Adam’s Natural PB 

Califia Almond and Coconut Milk Blend 

Paleo Egg White Protein (this on is on Amazon)

Frozen Mixed Berries


Here are my top 4 favorite recipes for any day of the week:

#1: Turkey and Egg Omelette with Whole Grain PB Toast 

Simple! Toss together 3 eggs, a few slices of turkey (chopped up), and make an omelette. Toast up your gluten-free bread, and slap some PB on. The Whole Grain Franz break is 10x better toasted with something on it. Not so good for plain or with eggs over-easy.

Omelette Tip: Whip everything together before you pour it in the pan, have the pan heated up a little before you pour it in, and cook it on medium heat so it doesn’t cook the outside too fast.

#2: Berry Smoothie 

Blend up 8oz Califia Farms non-dairy product, one scoop of the Paleo Protein Powder, and about 1 cup of berries.

I like this one for a good on-the-go breakfast that I can make in less than 5 minutes and take out the door!

#3: Gluten-Free Protein Pancakes 

Mix up the Gluten-Free bisquick mix as directed – I use the Califia Farms non-dairy milk to make it. Throw in one scoop of Paleo Protein Powder and add more liquid as needed.

Cook these like regular pancakes and enjoy! BONUS: They turn out nice and fluffy like regular pancakes! (Thanks, Bisquick!)

EXTRA BONUS: Throw these in a waffle iron for a yummy waffle breakfast bar!

#4: Cinnamon Raisin Toast 

Ok, so this one really isn’t a crazy idea. It’s literally the Franz Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Toast it. Eat it. Boil two eggs for some protein to balance out the meal, and enjoy with a cup of coffee. I like to put the Califia Farms non-dairy milk in my coffee as a sub for creamer.

This is a perfect combo for those early mornings when I don’t want to cook a lot, don’t have a ton of time, and it’s filling and delicious (especially with a couple of boiled eggs).

Extra Amazing Bonus Facts: 

These items aren’t going to break the budget (I’m a teacher, trust me I know about budgets).

If you cook for multiple people, they probably won’t know the difference between the gluten/dairy-free and the regular.
