Breakfast can be one of the hardest meals when you’re on a strict diet. In an elimination diet without eggs, gluten, dairy, and much more it can be difficult to come up with good breakfast ideas. These elimination diet breakfast ideas are sure to kick start your morning and keep you nice and full!
I’m not much of a breakfast person. I usually have a banana and then eat a real meal for lunch. But I also think that breakfast foods can be eaten at any time of the day and have made all of these recipes for lunch, dinner, or late night snacks. There are too many other rules on an elimination diet to worry about if something is being eaten at the appropriate time of day.
I hope you enjoy these elimination diet breakfast ideas, please share them with your friends and family!
Brunch Baked Sweet Potatoes
We’re going to start off with brunch. These baked sweet potatoes loaded with breakfast sausage and drizzled with real maple syrup will impress any company you have over. They’re the perfect balance of sweet, salty, and savory and will delight even the pickiest breakfast eaters.
Baked sweet potatoes can be on a whole different level. There is no reason to keep them limited to being sweetened further with butter and brown sugar. These sweet potatoes maintain their individual sweetness while being complimented with savory, tangy, salty, and everything that makes a full meal. Don’t shy away from the pickled red onions!
Rice Flour Banana Pancakes
Pancakes are an American breakfast classic. For some reason. Honestly, I typically find them far too sweet for breakfast. But these gluten free banana pancakes made with rice flour provide a healthier pancake breakfast option. Never forget the real maple syrup!
As with any pancake, these rice flour banana pancakes also make a great dessert. I think this recipe makes a just right serving for two people. I ate it all myself the first time and I might have overdone the maple syrup, better to split it with a freind.
Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal
Elimination diet breakfast ideas will start and end with oatmeal of some kind. Oats are sure to be a mainstay of any elimination diet. They’re filling, high in fiber, and very friendly for allergies and sensitivities. This twist on a classic adds unsweetened cocoa powder and cherries to make it a delightful variation on the oatmeal you’re used to. It also makes a great snack or even dessert!
You can use whatever milk fits your dietary needs. I use coconut but any kind of plain or canilla non-dairy milk will work. You can even use regular milk if you’re able to eat dairy! Elimination diet recipes are all about substitutions.
Vegan, Gluten Free Zucchini Bread
Vegan, gluten free baking is a challenge. I won’t lie to you about that. This zucchini bread is has a trick up its sleeve though and is even better on the second or third day after you make it! This makes it perfect for an elimination diet breakfast all week long. Load it up with raisins for extra sweetness and enjoy!
I love this zucchini bread with coffee. Every time I make baked goods I end up making more coffee for myself just because they go so well together.
Tofu Scramble Breakfast Bowl
Many people struggle to get away from eggs for breakfast. If you are able to eat soy, tofu is a great alternative to eggs. This tofu scramble breakfast bowl also uses sausage which makes it perfect for our friends who cannot have eggs but aren’t ready for a full vegan plan just yet! This elimination diet breakfast idea works equally well for lunch or dinner.
I know it’s difficult to find egg free recipes that aren’t vegan. Searching for egg free seems to only come up with completely plant based options. There’s nothing wrong with that but I know there are plenty of people out there who can’t have eggs but still want meat. This one’s for you!
Peach Creamsicle Smoothie
Sometimes all you want for breakfast is a lighter serving. Smoothies are perfect for a quick energy boost on the go. This peach creamsicle smoothie is a citrus free option that can be thrown together in fewer than 5 minutes.
If you are a fan of smoothies you can whip up a triple batch of these. Just stir or shake before serving. And of course keep it refrigerated.
Simple Overnight Oats
More oats! Make friends with oats, they are the best thing to keep inn your pantry during an elimination diet. Overnight oats make the mornings simple. You can prep this the night before and have it completely ready for you in the morning. You don’t even need to heat it.
These overnight oats are my midnight snack. I don’t always eat breakfast but I do alwawys want something when I get off of work late. I make servings for the week on Monday and just grab them one by one throuhgout the week. Easy to digest oats are perfect for before bed.
Vegan/Gluten Free Carrot Raisin Muffin Tops
You do not have to give up baked goods on a elimination diet. Muffin tops are the best part of the muffin and you don’t need a mufffin tin or papers to make them! They travel well and are surprisingly filling thanks to the oat flour and carrot fiber.
I love raisins, I think people are too harsh on them. They’re little bursts of sweetness and add a variety in texture. But if you really hate them for some reason you can of course substitute with another dried fruit.
Sweet Potato Crust Quiche
Even an elimination diet breakfast idea list has to mention eggs. If you have succesfully added eggs back into your diet then this recipe is for you. The crust is gluten free and the filling is loaded with ham and veggies with no dairy whatsoever.
I’m not a huge fan of eggs. I don’t like the texture much at all. I loaded up this quiche to hide that. It also makes it all that much more delicious.
Enjoy these elimination diet breakfast ideas and remember that your diet can be flavorful!
