Even with the increasing variety of gluten free cereals, gluten free breakfast choices can be somewhat limited. We’ve gotten pretty creative at our house and bananas have become one of my family’s favorite breakfast options. They’re fast, easy, fat free, gluten free, paleo friendly, dairy free, vegan and tasty! No matter what your dietary need, you can eat bananas (unless of course, you have an allergy to bananas. If that’s you, you might want to skip this post. Head here instead for some tasty baked apples.)
Unfortunately, I can’t take a good picture of bananas to save my life. I’ve decided instead to over-filter, ultra-hipsterize these photos to mask my disastrous attempts. Here are four of the ways we have bananas for breakfast with hipster photos.
4 Quick Gluten Free Banana Breakfast Ideas
1. Straight Up
The easiest way to eat a banana. Just peel and go. It’s filling, and fast and you can eat it on your way to work.
2. In Yogurt
This one’s my favorite, just slice the banana into a bowl, spoon plain, fat free yogurt over top and drizzle with honey. Use raw honey, organic yogurt and a sprinkle of bee pollen to feel extra hipster.
3. Banana Coconut “Cereal”
One for the kids! Slice bananas into a bowl, top with coconut milk or cow’s milk and brown sugar. Soft and comforting. A perfect soothing substitute when you don’t have time for hot cereal.
Still not quite used to gluten free bread, or can’t quite stomach the price? How about a Bananwich? Spread peanut butter, Nutella or fig jam over top of a banana. This is best enjoyed with a fork or near a napkin.
