OK, Gluten-Free Challenge folks, what’s for breakfast? Here are a few easy, delicious ideas…
Gluten-free or otherwise, these are hands-down some of the fluffiest pancakes we’ve ever had! Simply use Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix that we sell at Urban Acres, and follow the instructions on the back of the bag to whip up a batch of pancakes. All you have to add to the mix is water, oil (we use olive or coconut oil), and eggs! Easy. We also like to sprinkle some cinnamon into the batter. For best results, use an electric griddle on 300 degrees, or just use a normal skillet on medium. Don’t overcook them!
Top them with fruit, butter, and maple syrup or honey and savor every bite.

We love this post from The Nourished Kitchen that shows you how to make the perfect bowl of oatmeal. For truly gluten-free oatmeal, make sure you purchase certified gluten-free oats. (Oats are naturally gluten free, but if they are not certified gluten-free, they could have been grown in a field that previously grew other grains, or packaged in a plant that touched other grains containing gluten.)

Local Egg Cups
Egg cups are a great breakfast for the entire family that take little effort. You can even make a batch the night before and then just reheat them in the morning. All you need is a few simple ingredients and a muffin pan! And some local, farm-fresh eggs of course :). Get the recipe.
