Gluten Free Mother's Day Recipes gfJules


The funny thing about Mother’s Day meals — and if you’re a mom, you know exactly what I’m going to say — mom always seems to have to get all the ingredients together and practically (or totally) make it for herself … or she gets taken out to eat. When you’re gluten free, both options become more complicated.

berenstain bearsI think back to a book that made me giggle every time I used to read it to my kids (suggestively perhaps) at this time of year: The Berenstain Bears and the Mama’s Day Surprise! Poor Mama Bear had to surreptitiously scramble around to make sure all the ingredients were in the house for Papa Bear and the cubs to make her favorite breakfast. Then she would lie in bed listening to all the commotion, dreading the kitchen she was going to have to clean up afterwards.

The big surprise in this case (spoiler alert!) was that this time they actually cleaned up without her! Ah, such blissful fantasy in children’s books … but I digress.


“Be Prepared!”

Whether you’re the mama bear gathering necessary ingredients, or the papa bear, cub or other loving family member preparing breakfast for the mama in your life, these recipes will make things a bit easier. Simple, easy to prepare, delicious and of course, gluten free.

It’s not hard to make a wonderful breakfast in bed for your mama bear, just be prepared (reminds me of another children’s favorite, Hoodwinked … again, I digress).

  2. I remember reading that book when I was a kid. I then woke up early on Mother’s Day and made her breakfast just like they did in the book. I think I even followed whatever recipe the book had? What a fun memory!
    All of these gluten free breakfast recipes look way yummier than whatever I made my mom for breakfast in bed that year! Now who is going to make my breakfast this year?

    • Good question, Brianna! I’d like to know the same thing! They have one day left to prepare – fingers crossed you get something yummy that you don’t have to clean up! LOL!

    • Oh, of course it’s for your mom, Audrey. I never would have thought otherwise! 😉 But we have to taste-test first … to make sure it’s good enough for mom, right?
