Are you choosing a gluten free diet? Whether you’re going gluten free for medical reasons like Celiac Disease, in which case you need to avoid gluten entirely, or are just looking to try it out for a change of pace, there are plenty of gluten free recipes to try. Here are five gluten free breakfasts that will keep you going all morning long.
1. Wild Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie with Cashew Cream
This smoothie is perfect for busy mornings — just throw all the ingredients in the blender and you’re good to go. It’s a delicious drink loaded with everything you need to start the day right and stay satisfied like heart-healthy fats, plenty of protein, and fiber. Want a to make sure you’re getting your protein in early? Sub water for Orgain Organic Protein Unsweetened Almond Milk. And how can we ignore that perfect dollop of fresh cashew cream on top? Hello yum!
2. Orgain Matcha Chia Pudding with Chopped Mango
This four ingredient breakfast is a tropical delight. Chia seeds are a great gluten free source of heart-healthy omega-3’s and are rich in fiber, perfect for keeping your hunger at bay. The chia seeds will absorb all the almond milk (an excellent source of calcium, by the way) when left to sit for a bit, creating a thick, pudding-like texture. Add a scoop of Orgain Plant Based Protein Powder – Iced Matcha Latte for a boost of protein and flavor. And to make things even easier on yourself, whip this up the night before. You could even make a week’s worth and store it in the fridge.
3. Blueberry Lemon Zest Breakfast Cake
Cake for breakfast? Yes, please! This recipe by Tone It Up bakes up the perfect gluten free and flavorful breakfast using almond flour, which is higher in protein than some of the other gluten free flours out there. Expect a little more protein from your breakfast? Sub regular almond milk for Orgain Organic Protein Unsweetened Almond Milk! Bake this cake up at the beginning of the week to make your mornings that much easier. Just slice and go.
4. Homemade Muesli
The gluten free cereals you find at your grocery store can often be super high in sugar. Opt to make your own at home so you know exactly what you’re eating. Our Overnight Muesli is made by mixing fiber-rich oats with blueberries and Orgain Plant Based Vanilla Protein Powder. Serve it in a bowl with milk, as a topping for yogurt, or by the handful (we won’t judge!) The combination of fiber, fat, and carbohydrates will help to keep you feeling energized all morning long. Even better: you can easily make a bulk batch and store it in an airtight container.
5. Orgain Homemade Coconut Almond Protein Bars
These chewy, coconutty and protein-rich bars are a great on-the-go breakfast option and a great gluten free start to the morning. Dates add just the right touch of sweetness while binding all the ingredients together into an easy to hold and easy to eat bar. The protein comes from the raw almonds, which also serve as a source of healthy fats, along with the coconut in this tasty treat.
