Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re in need of Mother’s Day gluten free recipe ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Treat mom to something homemade, cheerful, safe and yummy — spoil her (and to my family: her = me!).
Jumbo Lemon Poppyseed muffins for Mother’s Day – so cheerful and sweet, just like mom!
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.
I 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.
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).

If you do decide to pack the family in the car and head out to a restaurant, take a moment to review some of my suggestions for being cautious at restaurants. It is possible to get a great, safe meal, but once again … “Be Prepared! “
