Gluten free breakfast ideas can often be hard to come by, but breakfast is my absolute favourite meal of the day and I like to make it as exciting as possible. Whether you’re after a leisurely brunch with breakfast muffins and crumbles, a quick breakfast smoothie or breakfast bar to eat on-the-go, or even some post-workout protein pancakes, there are so many different choices.

This is why I’ve teamed up with Nutri-Brex to show how much fun breakfast can be! Nutribrex challenged me to come up with some different gluten free recipe ideas using their 5 Ways Granola.

The Nutri-Brex granolas come in two flavours: hazelnut, coconut and quinoa (aka the green one!) and honey, almonds and seeds (aka the yellow one!). They are hugely versatile and you can also enjoy them in other ways, such as in a bircher pot or simply in a bowl with milk.

Gluten free breakfast muffins

A deliciously light and fluffy muffin, made with Nutri-Brex 5 Ways granola, and great for a gluten free breakfast on-the-go.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 150 ml low fat yoghurt
  • 50 ml rapeseed oil
  • 160 g pureed apple
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 200 g gluten free self raising flour
  • 50 g Nutri-Brex 5 Ways Granola with honey, almonds and seeds
  • 1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Extra granola for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 180’C/Gas 4. Line a muffin tin with large muffin cases, or use silicone cases as I have in this recipe.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs, yoghurt, oil, vanilla and honey and apple puree. Mix well until combined.
  3. Add the flour, bicarb, granola and cinnamon to the mixture and mix for a few seconds until it is a smooth batter.
  4. Once mixed, divide the mixture between the muffin cases and sprinkle each one with a little extra granola.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and then allow to cool on a rack before eating.


Can be stored in a sealed container for around three days.
