A Guide to Gluten and Dairy Free Brunch

Brunch, a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch, is my favourite meals of the day.  It is perfect for a social situation of catching up with friends and I also sometimes enjoy it for a bit of alone time to catch up on my website.

Just because you are gluten and/or dairy free it doesn’t mean you should miss out on the pleasure of a good brunch.  If you are stuck for inspiration then I’ve pulled together a few of my favourite sweet, savoury and drink brunch recipes.

Something to Drink?

Whether you prefer a hot or cold drink, or both like me, here are some ideas for fancy flavoured coffee, freshly squeezed juices and smoothies.

Gluten & Dairy Free Iced Latte with Homemade Cinnamon Syrup

It is really easy to make your own cold brew coffee and cinnamon flavoured syrup at home.  Add a splash of your favourite dairy free milk and you have the perfect iced latte.

Gluten and Dairy Free Peanut Butter Cup Latte

This latte is based on a peanut butter cup and combines the lovely chocolate and peanut flavours into the coffee.

Gluten and Dairy Free Blueberry and Pineapple Smoothie

The pretty colour of this smoothie alone makes it a must have for your brunch table.  On the plus side the combination of the blueberries and pineapple ensures it tastes as good as it looks.

Gluten and Dairy Free ACE Juice

I first tasted ACE juice in Rome – it is freshly squeezed orange, carrot and lemon juice.  It is named ACE after the vitamins the juice is packed full of.

Something Savoury?

If you prefer a savoury dish for your special brunch.  Give one of these recipes a try.

Gluten and Dairy Free Breakfast Rolls

Gluten free rolls packed full of your brunch favourites – bacon, scrambled eggs, fresh tomatoes, spinach and of course some tomato ketchup.

Gluten and Dairy Free Poached Eggs with Chilli Lime Avocado

It seems you can’t have brunch nowadays without eggs and avocado.  This is my take, served on gluten free bread with a chilli lime avocado and a perfectly poached egg.

Gluten and Dairy Free Potato & Chicken Sausage Hash

A pretty breakfast bowl with pan fried paprika potatoes, onion, peppers and smoked chicken sausage all topped off with a sliced avocado.

Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato Chilli Baked Eggs

This humble little dish of eggs baked in a chilli tomato sauce is very satisfying – especially with a big piece of gluten free bread for dipping.

Something Sweet?

If like m you prefer a sweet start to the day then hopefully one of these recipes will catch your eye.

Gluten and Dairy Free Raspberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl

This bright smoothie bowl is a lovely sunny way to start the day.  It is flavoured with fresh raspberry and ginger and topped with lots of little fruit and granola treats.

Gluten and Dairy Free Gingerbread Pancakes

There is always time for pancakes – this time I’ve made them gingerbread flavoured.

Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Pop Tarts

Remeber pop tarts from your childhood – makes me think of burnt fingers trying to fish them out of the toaster.  This version is more of a sophisticated breakfast pastry and is packed full of chocolate and peanut butter.

Gluten and Dairy Free Cinnamon Waffles

And of course you can’t have brunch without considering serving waffles, enough said.
