I want to thank my readers for helping me compile this gluten free dairy free egg free breakfast list. Sometimes, no matter how much you watch for new products, you find new things by talking to other allergy moms. Together we are stronger together. So, do me a favor, and if I missed your comment in my social media, or you have something new to add, add it in the comment section below (and adding a link to it is even better!). Thanks in advance.
Why We Have to Eat Gluten Free Dairy Free Egg Free
My son was a baby when he was diagnosed with a wheat food allergy, dairy food allergy and egg food allergy. I remember thinking that we might possibly starve. Those three food groups feel like they’re in everything–ESPECIALLY breakfast recipes. Add to it that my husband is gluten intolerant and I thought I might go crazy.
After years of practice, I’ve found there are still some really good staples that we can enjoy as a whole family. I like to cook to the lowest common denominator, and there’s some breakfast recipes we like SO MUCH that we even will have them for dinner (since our mornings are so rushed.) I hope whether you have food allergies, intolerances, are on an elimination diet, have Celiac disease, or a medical or lifestyle necessity that you’re able to find some new favorites and start your morning off right.
Important info before looking at the gluten free dairy free egg free breakfast recipes:
- PLEASE be sure to read the actual package in the store before you buy it, as recipes and manufacturing processes may have changed since the time of publishing and company websites aren’t always as up to date as actual labels.
- Also–there may be some suggestions I’ve either personally tried, or added because a reader submitted it that you might not agree with. And that’s OK. As people with food allergies, medical conditions, Celiac, vegan or other dietary restrictions, there is a huge spectrum of what we feel comfortable eating or giving a loved one. Some have to check manufacturing processes and some are OK with “may contain” or “certified” statements. This list is not something you have to follow, but simply a guide to help get the creative juices flowing, and to help you, not to shame you. So, please refrain from negative comments.
- If any of the homemade recipes call for a milk substitute, you can use any non-dairy milk you prefer. You’ll notice I always call for rice milk, because I believe that has the least after taste and is the easiest taste to mask. But, you’re welcome to use almond milk, oat milk, cashew milk or coconut milk. Whatever works for your individual diet. The same goes for the butter alternatives as well (we prefer Earth Balance).
- If there’s a recipe that calls for a gluten-free flour blend, you can use my homemade recipe, and if not, each individual recipe page should help guide you to a store bought option as well (I like to look for is made from white or brown rice flour, potato starch and tapioca starch). Be sure to read the text above the recipe card. In my recipes, I never call for almond flour making all of my recipes nut free as well! I also stay away from more rare type of flours, like cassava flour or coconut flour just for simplicity and budget.
- Do these work as a vegan option? Yes and no. Technically, all of these recipes should be vegan as well, since they don’t have dairy products or egg products, therefore eliminating animal products. However, there are many vegans who don’t like to eat something unless they’ve checked all of the sourcing and manufacturing to ensure no animals were used at any portion. So, before feeding any of these to vegans, be sure to check with them on their comfort level.
- I’ve tried to add links to any that I can, so you can personally check them out before shopping for them. Some I couldn’t find, but hopefully this will still be helpful. None of these are sponsored.
I hope that this long list of delicious gluten-free dairy-free egg-free breakfast recipes will help you all enjoy breakfast once again, after all: it’s the most important meal of the day. Despite your food intolerances, I hope you can find something new and maybe something store bought that will make your mornings go a bit easier. Whether you have a sweet tooth, and you want something like homemade donuts or waffles, or something savory like faux egg frittatas there should be something for everyone.
You may find you’re like us, and you like these recipes so much, that no matter the time of day, you’ll eat them. Now that we some recipes we can’t get enough of, we have them as a special breakfast-for-dinner as they’re too good to only eat in the mornings!
