With family and friends visiting during the holidays, you’re bound to have a few folks who need a special meal. There’s no need to stress, we’ve got you covered with brunch recipes for special diets.

Gluten-Free

Bake a batch of gluten-free muffins a day or two before your guests arrive so you'll have something on hand for them to munch on.

Kid-Friendly

Serve these scrumptious pancakes with a tall glass of low fat milk – the kids will never guess they’re eating a perfectly balanced meal.

Recipe: Apple Pancakes
Heart-Healthy

The small amount of Gruyere used here kicks up the flavor in this quiche, but still leaves room for it to be a heart healthy recipe.

Diabetic-Friendly

This perfectly portioned meal has 6 grams of carbohydrates per serving—plus, it’s diary-free and heart-healthy too.

Dairy-Free

These bite-sized sandwiches are perfect guests who are allergic or can't tolerate dairy. For more variety, use additional fillings like tuna salad and hummus and cucumbers.

Vegan

This porridge is brimming with all types of whole grains like farro, wild rice and steel-cut oats. Serve up with vegan toppings like maple syrup or chopped nuts.
