Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Breakfast Recipes

I love to fill up on whole foods that will power me through my morning. Here are some tips for making delicious breakfast ideas for those with gluten and dairy food sensitivities:

  • Swap the milk in your smoothies: I like to use almond milk or soy milk for a dairy-free option in my smoothies, and I also add healthy fats like avocado or almond butter.
  • Use gluten-free grains: Pancakes made from hearty, gluten-free whole grains like buckwheat or almond flour are another great breakfast option.
  • Remember, eggs are dairy-free: Some people are under the misconception that eggs are dairy, but I have good news for you: they’re not! Dairy products are made from animal milk (such as cow, goat, or sheep’s milk), meaning eggs are not dairy. In fact, many of these gluten-free, dairy-free recipes use eggs! Note: If you’re looking for a breakfast vegan option, you’ll need to skip the recipes with eggs. Though eggs are dairy free, they aren’t vegan, since they come from an animal.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Dinner Recipes

I’ve discovered so many quick healthy dinners that are also gluten-free and dairy-free.

Simply pair some type of protein (meat, fish, black beans, eggs, etc.) with a starch and fresh veggies, and you’ll end up with a satisfying meal that makes you forget the dairy and gluten!

Many of these meals can be made in a slow cooker for an easy weeknight dinner that accommodates food allergies.

Follow these tips for winning dinners that fit within your diet:

  • Swap out soy sauce: Use tamari instead of soy sauce to get a gluten-free dinner!
  • Check labels closely: If you have Celiac disease, be sure to check labels on products like chicken stock to ensure your meal is completely gluten-free.
  • Achieving a creamy consistency: Homemade cashew milk is a great hack for getting a creamy sauce or one pan meal without the cream. You can easily make your own by soaking cashews in water, draining, and blending.
  • Cheesy flavor without the cheese: Nutritional yeast is an amazing ingredient that adds cheesy flavor without dairy.
  • Use gluten-free flour or cornstarch the thicken stews: Some soups and stews are thickened with a roux, which is basically any kind of fat and thickener whisked together. Fortunately, you can sub any kind of all-purpose gluten-free flour in place of regular flour when making gluten-free soup.

Gluten-free, dairy-free desserts can definitely be hit or miss, but it CAN be done!

I take my baking seriously and am proud to create recipes everyone loves, whether or not they have food allergies.

Check out these tips for foolproof gluten-free, dairy-free desserts:

  • Opt for well-tested recipes: When you’re looking for a delicious dessert that fits your dietary restrictions, it’s SO important to use a well-tested recipe. In fact, that was part of my inspiration for creating this website! You can rest assured that this collection of recipes has been tested again and again to create the absolute best texture and flavor that doesn’t leave anything lacking. Plus, many of them use simple ingredients that are easy to find at the grocery store.
  • Use high-quality gluten-free flour: Be sure to use high-quality, 1:1 gluten-free flour for any of these dessert recipes. It makes all the difference! I recommend King Arthur Flour 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour.
  • Achieving a creamy consistency: I like to use coconut cream or coconut milk for dairy free recipes. It’s rich and creamy, and completely dairy-free!

  1. I have one daughter who is celiac and the other who is wheat/dairy/rice free amongst a handful of other random things. Im struggling with a decent, light, ‘normal’ bread as anything im finding thats GF reverts to rice flour – any decent recipes that do not include loads of expensive items we may never use again (if they dont like the bread!) would be super appreciated – TIA

  2. I have a niece that is totally gluten-free, as well as totally dairy free. I am looking to bake her something that does not contain dairy products, I would like to be her some cookies but all the recipes have butter or eggs please help. Ideas?

    1. Does she need to be dairy-free and egg-free? Or just dairy-free? Just wondering because it’s a common misunderstanding that eggs are not dairy. They’re different allergies.
