These gluten free camping breakfast recipes are the perfect answer to high energy, low hassle gluten free breakfast that the whole family can dive into and not feel they’re missing out.
As many regular readers will know I am intolerant to lactose, and my nephew has Coeliac disease (meaning he can’t eat even the smallest amount of wheat). So when Delicious Alchemy got in touch to give some of their gluten free products a try, I nearly bit their arm off! :D
And with Easter fast approaching I am in serious camping mode, so the two had to be combined into these yummy gluten free camping breakfast recipes.
The 5 minute rice pudding needs no fresh ingredients so can be saved for the end of your camping trip – all you need is a packet of the Delicious Alchemy Rice Flake Porridge and a can of coconut milk.
For the Vanilla Puffy Pancakes you’ll need eggs, water and some oil along with a packet of the Delicious Alchemy Vanilla Sponge Cake mix.
These are both really high energy breakfasts so are perfect if you have an active day planned. For those who enjoy a more sedate camping trip, you may want to give their gluten free porridge oats a go instead ;)
5 Minute Rice Pudding
This is a ridiculously tasty gluten and dairy free rice pudding which is rich, creamy and so comforting we reckon this’ll become a firm favourite at any time of day. However, we’re championing it for a divine camping breakfast.
Mix through chopped bananas, desiccated coconut and/or cinnamon for an extra flavour boost.
One can of coconut milk is enough for two servings and you can use full fat or reduced fat coconut milk. I used full fat and it was seriously rich & creamy!

Vanilla Puffy Pancakes
I may have bent the rules ever so slightly for this recipe, but who’s to say that the Delicious Alchemy Vanilla Sponge Cake Mix can only be baked in an oven, in a cake pan? Sometimes thinking outside the box will extend your meal options when camping, and especially if your diet is confined by a food intolerance.
The texture of these little puffy pancakes is superb – they have the slightest hint of a biscuity crust and Jonny gave them an enthusiastic thumbs up (and scoffed FOUR for his lunch!).
Want to see how easy they are to make? Well, here you go then :)
- 100 g rice flake porridge
- 400 ml can coconut milk
- Other flavours to serve such as cinnamon banana, brown sugar, fresh fruit or desiccated coconut
- 1/3 of a pack of vanilla sponge mix
- 4 tablespoons water
- 1 egg
- 60 g vegetable oil or melted butter
- Fresh berries or maple syrup to serve.
Mix the rice flakes and coconut milk together and gently bring to a simmer. Keep stirring and within a few minutes you'll have thick, yummy rice porridge.
Mix all the ingredients together to form a thick batter reminiscent of custard!
Heat a little more oil in a frying pan and pour in a dollop of batter, swirl round the pan to form a pancake and cook for a few minutes. When the pancake is holding together and you can see it is golden on the underneath, slide a spatula under it and carefully flip it over. Repeat the cooking on the other side and serve when golden brown and cooked through.
