I discovered during my recent elimination diet that gluten free grains were contributing to my stomach issues. That means that for the most part I’m leaving grains like oats, rice, and corn out of the array of foods I consume on a daily basis, and experimenting with grain free flours like quinoa, buckwheat, coconut, and tapioca in my baking endeavors. I’m still indulging occasionally, like with the gluten free Mickey waffles I had last weekend in Florida or maybe a bit of rice when I go out for a good sushi dinner. But 90% of the time I’m on the grain free bandwagon, and that means saying goodbye to the baked oatmeal cakes that I featured on the blog throughout my first year of recipe sharing. I still make many of the flavors using quinoa flakes rather than oats, but I thought I’d throw a spotlight on them now since they won’t be making appearances in my WIAW posts anymore!
When you’re looking for a berry-licious breakfast, try a Blueberry Muffin, Blackberry Bramble, or Strawberry Fields oatmeal cake. Springtime berries make for a naturally sweet treat!
If it’s a classic flavor combination you seek, look no further than the Peanut Butter & Jelly, Peaches n’ Cream, or Banana Bread cakes.
For a truly decadent dessert-for-breakfast, give this Gluten Free Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake or its Double Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake compatriot a try.
And when autumn comes, there’s nothing like a classic Pumpkin Spice, Apple Cinnamon, or Maple Ricotta rendition.

Oh my gosh these look so amazing–and oatmeal is my favorite breakfast! I usually just heat up rolled oats with almond milk and add in brown rice protein powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and almond butter. There isn’t any food I can’t really consume anymore, but I have been trying to cut out more dairy (but I will NOT give up the occasional Cold Stone treat!).
These look SO good. I’m taking it easy on the oats and grains in general lately, but one of these recipes has to be on deck.
Cutting out most grains actually hasn’t been as challenging as it seems – if you want to go grain free, just use quinoa hot cereal flakes instead!
Thats too bad that you have had to cut out so much! All of these look delicious. Luckily I haven’t had to cut anything out of my diet but I cut back on dairy because I noticed if I ate too much I didn’t feel great.
Dairy’s not as bad as grains for me, but definitely had to cut that 2-3 yogurt a day habit. Just one, and if I have one, not so much cheese or ice cream.
I’m sorry that you had to cut out so much! :[ I have no idea where I’d start with these–all of these look so good! ❤ Cookie dough always seems to call to me most though.
It’s not that big of a deal. Quinoa flakes are a winner!
