Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipes That Will Make You Forget All About Bread

Going gluten-free at breakfast doesn't have to be a compromise. Sure most bread is off-limits, and muffins or pastries made with wheat flour are a no-go, but cutting these items out shouldn't feel like a sacrifice when there are so many wonderful foods to eat instead.

Many favorite breakfast foods, like eggs and smoothies, are naturally gluten-free. For those that aren't, there are a lot of rewarding ways around your wheat habit. Quinoa makes a great breakfast cereal, hot or cold. Gluten-free flours -- like coconut, chickpea or almond -- are the building blocks of flavorful baked goods that rival anything made with wheat flour. Quiches can go crustless, granola can go grainless, and leftover rice makes a great porridge.

For a killer morning sans gluten, look no further than the 19 recipes below. They'll make you forget all about bagels -- or at least make it easier to go without them.
