Gluten free breakfast ideas can be hard to come by. We all need a little inspiration sometimes and here it is, in the form of gluten free baked beans!

Nothing beats homemade baked beans for breakfast. They are filling and tasty, not to mention healthy and easy. These babies are so quick to make you will be surprised.

I fell in love with homemade baked beans after a family holiday in the Grand (obviously my love of food started at a very young age, when the most memorable thing about my first 5 star hotel stay was the baked beans!) but I hadn't thought to share them on the website until I realised we all lack a little bit of gluten free breakfast inspiration sometimes. These gluten free baked beans will perk up your mornings, especially as winter is approaching.
