I’ve been getting a ton of requests lately for gluten free brunch recipes and I’ve been SO happy to respond with all my favorites! Brunch is a meal with no boundaries which, like Chick-fil-A fries for lunch in the parking lot, is totally a meal I can get behind.

Since we’re talking brunch/breakfast-type recipes, I have to tell you that I’ve been making breakfast for dinner a lot lately because it’s so fast and the kids and I been spending more time outdoors in the afternoons as the weather warms up. Each photo I caught of my babes during a recent bubble adventure in the backyard sums them up *perfectly*. Lincoln is karate chopping the bubbles, Cam is trying to eat them, and sis is laughing at them both. Oh my goodness!

Anyway, the kids’ current fave (and mine too because it takes 10 minutes to make) is gluten free French Toast Sticks – would you like the recipe?

Back to brunch! As I mentioned last week, we are in the thick of shower season which is a big reason why I’ve been getting so many requests for brunch recipes. It’s a great time of day to schedule an event around because brunch recipes are typically easy, make-ahead and, like I mentioned, anything goes. Sweet, savory, hearty, or light – DIY bars, casseroles, dips, and more – there are SO many fun dishes you can serve for brunch, and the best news of all is that many are easily made gluten free.

Easter is coming up of course and while we typically enjoy a huge Easter dinner, my Mom also always prepares brunch for after church and before the big egg hunt. The recipes I’m sharing below are almost always on the menu and make for such a delicious day. Showers, holidays, or simply when you’ve got guests or want to entertain, you are going to adore these 15+ gluten free brunch recipes!

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

I can promise you three things if Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls are on the brunch menu: 1.) they will FLY off the platter (especially if warm – YUM.) 2.) It doesn’t really matter what else you make for brunch because everyone will be obsessing over the gluten free cinnamon rolls. 3.) Make a double batch. :)

Best Ever Fruit Dip

My Mom always prepares both a fruit and relish tray for brunches and Best Ever Fruit Dip totally makes the platter! This three ingredient fruit dip recipe is from an 80s church cookbook and, unlike power bangs, has stood the test of time.

The Best Grain Free Granola

Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole

IMHO you cannot have a proper brunch without a cheesy, bubbling breakfast casserole, which is why I’ve got four of them in this list! Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole has been a hit with my family and yours for years and years. I actually schedule celebrations for birthdays and baptisms, etc around brunch time so I can serve this dish. So easy and SUCH a crowd pleaser.

Breakfast Taco Casserole

Don’t tell Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole, but Breakfast Taco Casserole might actually be my favorite brunch-friendly casserole. All the typical ingredients that come in breakfast tacos – corn tortillas, eggs, and sausage – layered in a baking dish then smothered with cheese sauce. YES.

Roasted Poblano and Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Roasted Poblano and Sausage Breakfast Casserole takes a liiiiittle extra effort to roast a couple poblano peppers, but my word is it worth the effort. If you’re tired of the same old breakfast casserole for brunch, this make-ahead, slightly special version is definitely worth a try.

Beet Hummus Toast

A hummus toast bar is another fun brunch idea. Set out your toaster with gluten free bread, plus different flavored hummus and fresh toppings like microgreens, chevre, avocado slices, and different flavored salts. If you’re feeling fancy you could whip up poached eggs for popping on top!

Healthier Zucchini Banana Bread Muffins

Baked goods are pretty much mandatory for brunch – they fill in the gaps between breakfast casseroles and fruit salad nicely – and my Healthier Zucchini Banana Bread Muffins are a better option then pastries and doughnuts, if you ask me!

Easiest Fruit Salad

Fruit salad is another must for breakfast and brunch, and my Easiest Fruit Salad is so Midwest it hurts. I mean, marshmallows and mandarin oranges in a fruit salad? All I’ve got to say is, don’t knock it ’til you try it!

Mojito Fruit Salad

My favorite cocktail in (non-alcoholic) fruit salad form – Mojito Fruit Salad is beautiful, fresh, and festive for a spring and summertime brunch, especially. Also, I feel need to mention that a spoonful slid into a glass of champagne is also very brunch-y, no?
