Gluten-Free Meal Prep Recipes

  • 2 min read

Weekdays are busy. Having a stash of delicious meals and snacks ready to go can make life much easier, no matter your dietary preferences. Today, we're focusing on gluten-free recipes that can carry you through 24 hours. From breakfast to delicious dessert, we have you covered!

Breakfast: Overnight Oats

For overnight oats, you’ll need gluten-free rolled oats, your favorite milk (dairy-free or otherwise), a dollop of Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of honey.

Add some fresh fruit, seeds, or nuts if you want to kick the nutrients and flavor up a notch. Mix everything, pop it in the fridge overnight, and there you have it—a ready-to-eat nutritious breakfast that helps you start the day off on the right gluten-free foot.

Lunch: Quinoa Salad

Not only is quinoa naturally gluten-free, but it's also jam-packed with protein, making it the perfect go-to meal prep ingredient. 

Whip up a batch of quinoa and mix in your favorite fresh veggies. Popular choices include:

  • Avocado
  • Bell peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Cherry tomatoes

Are you looking for an extra protein boost? Toss in some grilled chicken or chickpeas to mix together. Divide into individual containers, and then make a quick batch of zesty vinaigrette using garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and herbs. 

Top each portion with the vinaigrette or store in small containers that you can quickly pour over your quinoa salad when you want to enjoy it!

Afternoon Snack: Energy Bites

Most of us need an afternoon pick-me-up. These bite-size energy morsels will tide you over until dinnertime. And they're ready in minutes!

Blend dates, coconut flakes, nuts, and a splash of vanilla extract until a sticky dough forms. Roll into bite-sized balls and chill in the fridge until firm. That's it! Place a few in a container to bring them to work so you have a quick bite ready to go should hunger hit.

Dinner: Sheet-Pan Fajitas

This sheet-pan dinner is full of flavor and easy to make. Here are the ingredients you'll need to meal prep:

  • Protein of choice, like tofu or shrimp
  • Onions
  • Bell pepper
  • Cumin
  • Chili powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Lime juice

Toss everything together before spreading it on a sheet pan and placing it in the oven to cook. Serve with gluten-free tortillas or over a bed of rice.

Dessert: Chocolate Chip Cookies

The day isn't complete without dessert! To make these gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, you only need some coconut oil, almond flour, maple syrup, a dash of vanilla extract, and, of course, chocolate chips.

Mix everything but the chocolate chips until a dough forms. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Next, scoop the dough onto a baking sheet and bake until golden brown. Finally, enjoy!
