It’s been hard for me to tolerate grains, dairy, nuts, seeds, and other common allergens, which makes conventional breakfast choices limited for me. Toast, cereal, porridge/oatmeal, pancakes, muffins, pastries, cheese, yoghurt – all out! Finding quick, easy and filling breakfast choices are the thing that I struggled with the most.
However, I remembered that when my husband and I where on our honeymoon, we often indulged in the tapioca pancakes at our rainforest lodge each morning. That was my first experience with tapioca, and I enjoyed the spongy consistency. After my diagnosis, I wondered how I could recreate something similar at home that would be safe and satisfying for me to consume. These pancakes have now become a go-to breakfast treat on weekends or when I have guests (I love them, but can’t have too much tapioca!).
