Chocolate Blueberry Pancakes

Chocolate Blueberry Pancakes

Pancakes are a weakness of mine and I don’t like missing out because of my food sensitivities so I’m always creating recipes that allow me to enjoy the beauty of a good pancake! Blueberries and cacao go really well together and add a bit of natural sweetness and they also make a great little snack for lunchboxes too. Plus, they’re also gluten free, dairy free and free from added sugar.

The serving size is suitable if you’re on the low FODMAP diet and is in line with the Monash Low FODMAP Diet App and the FODMAP Friendly app. However, please note that at the time of writing baking powder hadn’t been tested for its FODMAP content, but as gluten free baking powder is generally made from rice flour, it should be ok
