Coconut, Lime & Macademia Pancakes

I’ve been suffering. My love of breakfast has taken a beating from my recent FODMAP elimination diet – I’m currently off dairy, honey, and most delicious things. However, when you look forward to breakfast as much as I do, you’ll find a way to still make it amazing, dairy or no dairy. I mean, soy based coffee can be testing, but French Earl Grey is pretty amazing.

I enjoyed making these fluffly delicious pancakes with coconut milk and spelt flour – I forgot I was on any restrictions – life is always about finding a way, guys!
