Back to school is either here, or right around the corner for all of us. My kids have been in school since the end of July (way too soon and hot), so it is time for me to get creative with easy gluten free breakfast on the go recipes that are perfect for back to school. Luckily I have this awesome  list of gluten free breakfast foods. You are going to love these for your busy mornings. Whether it is back-to-school, or just because you are running out of the door- these gluten and dairy free breakfast ideas are healthy too and taste amazing.

So, here are 10 Gluten And Dairy Free Breakfast Ideas For On The Go…

Chocolate Chip Blender Muffins

These delicious muffins are a huge hit with my family and my readers! They take 30 minutes start to finish and will go fast! One of the best parts of these muffins is that they are oat based, so they are flourless. On top of that they are sugar free, gluten free, and dairy free. These are made with peanut butter, but feel free to swap it out for almond or cashew butter.

Chocolate Cherry CBD Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls are absolutely fabulous for a delicious and healthy breakfast. You can make it the night before and omit the CBD, or add it in right before eating. This as been one of my favorite breakfasts during the summer months.


Vegan Gluten Free Granola

Granola is perfect for throwing on top of yogurt with some sliced fruit for a fabulous parfait, or just snacking on. You can customize it with your favorite dried fruits and nuts. I like to pack it in a baggie for a fun snack, or easy breakfast.

Chocolate Chia Pudding Whole 30 Compliant

This pudding is AMAZING! I often feed it to my kids for dessert and they love it. However, its so darn healthy that this doubles as a fabulous breakfast. You can make it paleo if you aren’t on whole 30 too.

I tell you what, school starts here next week, and I need all of these in my life! I’m so BAD at planning out breakfast! I need to start making overnight oats again- they’re so amazing!

School has already started here — and these look like delicious options to fuel the kids for a busy day — and I know we wouldn’t get any complaints for things like coffee cake, muffins and scones. “I said EAT YOUR COFFEECAKE!” – yeah – like THAT would be an issue… It would be nice to bring some muffins to the teacher, too, don’t you think?

I know right ?! Muffins and Scones are the perfect thank you gift for a teacher!

What a great collection of breakfast ideas. School is just around the corner, and mornings are about to be a whole lot busier for many families. I am going to pass this along to my daughter. Both the grandkids will be in school this year, and they have an 8:00 a.m. start time. I’m sure she and her husband will find this helpful.

Thank you Gloria! We have to leave the house early too, so these have really helped. The kids love the muffins with some fruit and yogurt.

What a great collection of recipes! I have friends who are gluten- and dairy-free, so I like to keep fresh ideas on hand for when we get together for coffee. That coffee cake and the recipes for scones will absolutely fit the bill for our next gathering! What a gorgeous crumb on that cake, too. It looks like it came from a bakery!

Thank you Amanda! I know you and your friends will enjoy it!

Amazing round up! I remember the first time I saw those almond joy scones, I knew I had to make them. They’re still on my pinterest list but it’s going to happen! I’ll have to send this to my DF friend, she’ll be over the moon with all these options.

livingfreelygf August 18, 2018 - 10:45 pm

Thanks Carmy! The scones are little biscuits of heaven. I hope you try them soon!

End of July? We still have a couple more weeks here. Though it’s never too early to start thinking about quick, school morning breakfasts. I love all the options you have here, especially the muffins and the overnight oats. I think they’d be big hits with the kids.

livingfreelygf August 19, 2018 - 5:12 am

Thanks Annemarie. Yes, the kids have been in for 3 weeks now! The muffins are always a huge hit.

What a great list you’ve compiled here. I’ve bookmarked quite a few so I don’t have to rack my brain wondering what to make. I love that most of these recipes can be made in advance and frozen, which will really be helpful on the many busy mornings coming up. Thanks for doing the leg work.

livingfreelygf August 20, 2018 - 2:11 pm

Hi Debra. Thank you! I am glad that these can be helpful. Have a great week.

This is one fantastic list. I really needed some ideas and you’ve given them to me big time. I can’t believe that they are gluten and dairy free. I don’t have a problem but I’m sure the people who do have tummy problems would be grateful. I think all of the recipes look and sound very appetizing.

livingfreelygf August 20, 2018 - 2:09 pm

Thank you Marisa! It is hard to get creative sometimes with multiple food allergies in the home.

Ugh, kudos to you for having it together enough to track down not one but TEN great breakfast ideas at this time of the year. My kids aren’t back in school yet but it’s just around the corner and I don’t feel prepared enough yet. I’ll have to show them the list and ask them what they’re most likely to repeatedly ask me for instead of toast or cereal in the morning. Haha. And while we don’t have any gluten issues in our home it’s always nice to be able to shake it up a bit and get out of the usual grain rut!

livingfreelygf August 21, 2018 - 4:23 am

Thanks Sean! The blender muffins are always a huge hit with my kiddos!

What a great list!! Even though we’re not gluten free, I love having these options for our friends who are. Drooling over that chocolate banana bread – it looks so incredibly moist and delicious!

Fabulous collection. I have to pass this on to my friend, because she’s GF and was recently talking about breakfast foods she misses! She does so well given her restrictions, and she’s so great at finding substitutes, so I know she’ll appreciate all of these gems. Heck, I’d enjoy them too!
