These SIBO pancakes made with almonds and shredded coconut ground into a flour are nutrient-dense and the perfect SIBO breakfast recipe to enjoy while on the low fodmap or SIBO diet.
The low fodmap pancakes are suitable for phase 2 of the SIBO diet, where you can enjoy a tsp of honey and ¼ cup of blueberries on top.
I spiced the SIBO pancakes with ground ginger and cinnamon, which are excellent spices for SIBO, and make these pancakes super tasty.
Eggs bind the pancakes and are an excellent source of choline required by the PEMT gene to make phosphatidylcholine, which promotes bile flow from the gallbladder.
A choline deficiency is associated with fatty liver and a sluggish gallbladder resulting in poor bile flow. Insufficient bile is an underlying cause of SIBO.
This low fodmap pancake recipe made 1-2 servings—either a giant pancake, two medium pancakes, or three small pancakes. I messed up one of the pancakes during the flip, so I didn’t get a photo of all 3.
I am currently a breastfeeding mom with a big appetite, so I ate all 3 of the low fodmap banana pancakes with blueberries and was full for hours. If you like a lighter breakfast, then you may not want the entire serving.
Either way, you will be satiated off these SIBO pancakes full of protein, un-processed fats, and liver cleansing carbohydrates from the blueberries.
How to make SIBO pancakes
I used a combination of shredded coconut and almonds blended into a flour. I made fresh ground flour by blending shredded coconut and whole almonds in my vitamix blender until flour consistency.
Dried shredded coconut is low fodmap in 1/2 a cup per meal, and almonds are low fodmap in a serving of 10 almonds per meal.
Combine the flour in a bowl and add in the baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger. Stir with a spoon before adding in mashed banana and two eggs. Use an immersion blender to get a pancake batter that is free of any chunks.
Melt a tsp of coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat. Pour the batter into the pan, dividing it into three small pancakes. Flip the low fodmap pancakes after cooking for a couple of minutes on one side. Continue to cook the other side until golden brown.
In a small pot, heat ¼ cup frozen blueberries until thawed and warm.
Serve the low fodmap banana pancakes with a tsp of honey and blueberries.
