Jazz Up Breakfast With Udi’s Gluten Free Baked goods

During the Summer, I can get really lazy about breakfast. I mean, the kids are getting up later and at all different times and I am not craving something hot like I do in the Winter. Yet, ironically, Summer is when the family is super busy physically, going swimming and hiking and traveling and we need a healthy breakfast to get going.

I like to just go ahead and call our Summer breakfast “brunch.” Seriously, do not wake up kids if you don’t have to, right? But I do like to feed them decent meals…so we just start later in the day.

When I got an Udi’s Gluten Free Foods Sampler last week, I was glad to test out some new breakfast goodies.

Now, we are lucky in that no one in our home is officially celiac. But, I do have sensitivity to gluten, so I try to avoid gluten in general.

When I first tried Udi’s, I had been gluten free for over six months and I was thrilled to find something I could eat I did not have to bake for myself! (And the Udi’s bread and cookies I tried at the time were way better than mine).

If you or a loved one need to totally cut out gluten, many of Udi’s choices are very useful. All Udi’s Gluten Free Foods are certified gluten free. I wish they were organic as well, but most are certified kosher. Many Udi’s products are totally nut free unless clearly marked (like some granolas) and some are even dairy, soy and egg free.

I was expecting to try a new granola flavor or bit of bread so and I was pleasantly surprised to find a large number of new baked goods in my sampler.

Udi’s baked goods…and they must know I have kids, some granola bars on top:)

When my children tried some out, there was definitely no contest about which baked goods they would try first. They ate all the muffins and cinnamon rolls right away that week. I thought the cinnamon rolls were good when heated. Not especially great for you, but a really nice treat! I really liked the muffins. A little less sweet than the cinnamon rolls and so moist, you would never guess they were gluten free.

Then, I was curious to try the tortillas. My family enjoys a breakfast burrito, with scrambled eggs with monterey jack cheese and onion and green pepper, rolled up in a tortilla. I wondered how a tortilla could really be gluten free and still taste good. When I made these, I heated the tortillas up individually in the skillet with a bit of butter. I did need to be delicate as the tortillas can break easily. Once they were heated up though, the wraps were almost more like crepes in texture and were very easy to work with. The breakfast burrito wraps were a hit!

I think my favorite things of all were the bagels and the cinnamon bread. Oh my goodness, a bit of that bread, toasted, with coffee was delicious. The cinnamon bread tasted just like regular cinnamon bread, I thought.

And, the Everything Inside Bagel and the Mighty Bagel were very good.

The Everything Bagel has 7g of protein, 3g of fiber and non GMO canola oil. The Mighty Bagel has 8g of protein, 3g of fiber and some great flavors, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. The kids loved these also except for the flax seeds. These would also travel well for a healthy breakfast.

While we were gobbling down the bagels, my husband quietly took the granola samples. He always likes Udi’s granola and I do buy the Vanilla granola for him. This time, the difference in the newer type of granola was that they have added Antioxidants and Omega 3’s to their Active Granola line. The bag is 11oz, just a teeny bit smaller than the older versions of granolas at 12 oz per package. My husband did like the Blueberry Cashew flavor and found it full of nuts and fruit.

You can find Udi’s even at Walmart, now, I see. You can also buy them online if you cannot find locally.

Don’t forget to check out the Udi’s Website. You can read many tips about Gluten free living and get tons of recipes, as well as get a $1 off coupon for Udi’s.

You can also find ideas for recipes on their Pinterest and on Facebook.

*I received Udi’s samples to review for this post. I have given my honest opinion and received no additional compensation.
