Notes
NOTE: In the US a HEb serving of Oats is slightly less than the UK, so adjust according.

Syn value of cocoa powder can vary from brand to brand. The three brands I use are 100% cocoa powder (not Dutch Processed) and are 1 tbs for 20 calories (1 syn).

You should always double check the syn values of items which are synned, as brands can differ.
