“Coming up with gluten free breakfasts to satisfy everyone in the family is tricky. We ate flat, solid pancakes for a long time before learning about whites whipped and light. Fluffy AND gluten free? Yes it is possible! Our family favorite.” – John Fleming

lemon, nuts, yoghurt, honey, coconut oil/butter, coconut sugar, jams,
