Gluten Free Vanilla Ginger Pancakes low FODMAP friendly

Several years ago I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and IBS.  Among other treatments, it was suggested I try a low FODMAP diet.  When I looked at the list I thought “well good gravy what am I allowed to eat?!” Ironically my regular gravies were off the list.  I was determined to feel better and give it an honest go. As I learned how to adapt my favorite foods, I started realizing it wasn’t so bad. Like this recipe for Gluten Free Vanilla Ginger Pancakes. My family loves pancakes. We’ll do pancakes for dinner sometimes. I’ve been experimenting with different pancake recipes.

NuNaturals, known for their stevia products, sent me some of their newest products. I couldn’t wait to try them out.  I’ve been using NuNaturals products for a few years now since stevia is allowed on the low FODMAP diet. I’m happy that NuNaturals has been adding gluten free and organic products to their line up too!


1/2 cup NuNaturals Organic Green Banana Flour

1 Tablespoon NuNaturals Collagen Peptides 

1 Tablespoon NuNaturals Vanilla Ginger Syrup

1 pinch of salt

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup almond or coconut milk

teaspoon of coconut oil

**Makes about 6 medium sized pancakes



Mix all ingredients, except coconut oil,  in mixer on medium.  The whisk attachment of my mixer seemed to work best.  Heat frying pan or skillet on medium heat. Add teaspoon of coconut oil then scoop or pour pancake batter in.  I made medium size pancakes which ended up being plenty. These pancakes are very filling.

Once plated you can add a little extra Vanilla Ginger syrup on top and butter if you like. Because NuNaturals syrups use water, stevia, and extracts it is a good alternative to syrups containing high fructose corn syrup which is a no-no on the low-FODMAP diet. NuNaturals Organic Green Banana powder is gluten free and use low FODMAP friendly banana base but does not leave a banana taste when cooked/baked. The collagen peptides add protein to the pancakes and seems to make the batter thicken up a bit.

These pancakes were very filling. I gave myself 3 and half way through the 3rd one I hit a brick wall. I gave one of my son’s two of them and it filled him up.

I received the above mentioned NuNaturals products at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

What’s inside a Gluten-Free Conscious Box?

***This post does contain affiliate link. Regardless I only post legitimate offers from trusted sites.*** 

 I had the opportunity to try a Conscious Box at no cost for hosting the giveaway that just recently ended here on  Conscious Box has 3 different types of boxes to choose from.  All boxes are  earth friendly but they also give you the option of a classic, vegan, or gluten-free subscription.

I decided to try out the Gluten-free box.  I’ve been told by my doctor that a gluten-free diet might help me with some of the chronic “stomach” issues I have.  My problem is a lot of the gluten-free products are more expensive and I hate to spend the money and end up not liking it.  This is a great way to introduce myself to some gluten free brands and products.

I got my first Conscious Box today and decided to do an unboxing video so we could discover together just what kind of products are inside a gluten-free Conscious Box.
