Delicious Gluten Free Christmas Brunch Recipes

Need a delicious breakfast to go with your holiday plans? Check out these delicious gluten-free Christmas brunch recipes! There are dairy-free and vegan options, too!

Gluten-Free Christmas Brunch Recipes

One of my favorite memories from childhood is Christmas brunch. After waking up way too early to open presents as a family, we would all trudge through the snow to our neighbor’s house. There we would exchange even more gifts and indulge in my neighbor’s signature homemade baked good… big, fluffy cinnamon rolls.

Along with the cinnamon rolls would be a feast of all the most delicious Christmasy breakfast foods we could hope for, but I seriously was only there for the cinnamon rolls.

Even now, as an adult, cinnamon rolls take me back to snowy Christmas mornings growing up. Gluten-free monkey bread does the same thing for my husband. There’s just something about gluten-free brunch food that says holiday mornings!

Since Christmas morning is almost upon us, I’ve rounded up 20 delicious sweet and savory gluten-free Christmas brunch recipes for you to enjoy with your loved ones this year. If you’re also grain-free, dairy-free, or vegan, there are some of those options included, just for you.

Let’s start off with my favorite gluten-free brunch recipe…

These gluten-free, dairy-free Cinnamon Rolls are truly amazing. You won’t even be able to tell they are gluten-free, let alone dairy-free, corn-free, nut-free, and soy-free. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them, too.

What a list! They look awesome and I can't wait to make these for my wife who went gluten free due to an autoimmune condition. I really hope I do these recipes justice and make her happy.

Hi Megan! It's Kellee. I was your neighbor who lived in the yellow house several years ago. So much has happened since then. Anyways, I have a child who I will be adopting soon. We think he has celiac disease, which means our household will probably be going gluten free. We have an appointment today, so hopefully we will get some answers. I did a quick search to see if you were still online. I am so glad I found you. Email me if when you have a free momen so that we can catch up.
