Allergy Friendly Breakfast Recipes

Breakfast is my least favorite part of the day.  I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, and I feel like I am always stuck in a rut with meal ideas.  So, after doing some research and brainstorming with some fellow chefs (aka Supermoms), I found some FANTASTIC easy breakfasts.  But the best part?  That they avoid some very common allergies that some of my favorite kiddos have.  Read on to learn about our favorite allergy friendly breakfast ideas.

DAIRY FREE

One of my wonderful friend’s daughters was just diagnosed with a dairy allergy.  When we were chatting about it, I didn’t realize that so many things have dairy in them that you would never think of.  So if you are in the same boat as my friend and her ADORABLE daughter, check these options out:

Banana Boats

-Peel and slice a banana in half.

-Coat the banana with a think spread of (pure) peanut butter.

-Roll the peanut butter coated banana in a topping of your choice:  ground nuts or any dairy free variation of cereal or granola.

Smoothies

-Place half a banana, a handful of chopped strawberries, a few slices of mango, a handful of spinach, 1/3 cup almond or soy milk, and ¼ cup of orange juice in a blender.

-Blend, pour, and enjoy!

*If you think it needs to be thickened, add a dollop of peanut butter…blend well!

Breakfast Sausage Skewers

-Slice 4 cooked sausage links.

-Half a handful of red seedless grapes.

-String both onto a skewer, alternating ingredients.

 

GLUTEN FREE

Many of my in-laws are avoiding gluten (some for allergy reasons and some for dietary reasons), so they are always on the hunt for gluten free dishes that are delicious and nutritious.  Although it is pretty easy to find gluten free bread at the store nowadays, you can always try some of these recipes:

Smoothies

-Place half a banana, a handful of chopped strawberries, a few slices of mango, a handful of spinach, 1/3 cup almond or soy milk, and ¼ cup of orange juice in a blender.

-Blend, pour, and enjoy!

*If you think it needs to be thickened, add a dollop of yogurt…blend well!

Banana “Pancakes”

-Mix together a smashed banana and an egg, with a 1:1 ratio.

-Add a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, or apple pie spice.

-Cook the batter as you would a pancake, serving with powdered sugar, butter, or syrup if desired.

-Be sure to use cookie cutters to create fun shapes, too!

 Veggie and Egg Cups

-Finely chop any vegetables of your choosing.  Our popular picks:  onions, mushrooms, asparagus, tomatoes, peppers.

-Sautee chopped veggies with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

-Mix together three eggs, a sprinkle of cheese, and a splash of milk.

-Spoon vegetable mixture and egg mixture evenly into pre-greased mini-muffin tins.

-Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes (until the center is firm).

 

NUT FREE

So many places nowadays are striving to be “safe zones” for people with nut allergies.  Just because you can’t eat nuts doesn’t mean that your meals can’t be interesting, though.  Here are some of our favorite nut free favorites:

Breakfast Quesadilla

-Scramble one egg with a splash of milk, salt, and pepper.  Saute for 3-5 minutes.

-Cover one whole grain tortilla with a cheese of choice (we prefer chihuahua) and the cooked scrambled egg.  Top with another whole grain tortilla and cook in the microwave for 30-45 seconds (until cheese has melted).

-Slice and serve with salsa or guacamole as dipping sauces.

Banana “Pancakes”

-Mix together a smashed banana and an egg, with a 1:1 ratio.

-Add a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, or apple pie spice.

-Cook the batter as you would a pancake, serving with powdered sugar, butter, or syrup if desired.

-Be sure to use cookie cutters to create fun shapes, too!

Sweet Sammy

-Toast a whole grain English muffin.

-Coat with a thin layer of your favorite fruit spread.

-Top with sliced bananas and blueberries.

      I would hate it if I could only eat bland food because of medical issues–life is too short to eat bad food!

    This is a great round up of recipes for people with allergies!! Having Celiac disease, I always struggle to find new gluten free recipes!! I have tried this banana pancake one and it is AWESOME! I can’t wait to try the other ones!

      My husband grew up with Celiac disease and he is so jealous of all of the great options that exist today for people who need to avoid gluten and other ingredients.

    This is such a great collection of recipes! We have a friend that stays with us several times a year who is gluten and dairy free and I have a hard time with breakfast items. These are great ideas!

    Wow this looks great! I love breakfast recipes! Although I don’t have an allergy to really anything, this can definitely be a problem for some parents and many are unsure of what to feed their baby. This is wonderful! I will be sharing it with others! Thanks.

    These are all really great breakfast options, even if you don’t have allergies! The banana pancakes are a big hit in our house, my little guy loves them with blueberries and raspberries. I need to try those banana boats with my little guy 🙂

    The banana boats are my favorite idea out of the bunch. I have never made them myself! What a sweet idea and love the toppings. Can you imagine adding sprinkles and ice cream too 😉 What a decadent choice!
