I have been cruising around other blogs to find those that are fructose free or with low FODMAP recipes and there are not that many which impress me among the few that exist. But I have found one which has a few recipes which I would like to try. These quinoa chocolate chip cookies are from Delicious as it Looks. She added M&Ms, which is not exactly low FODMAP so I left them out but they would be a fun element to add for the colour if nothing else. There is no flour, just quinoa flakes which creates a rather heavy texture but they are still delicious and filling. With a cup of tea for morning tea, they work well. Apart from not using the M&Ms, I also didn’t add the 1/2 cup brown sugar. I increased the 1/4 cup cane sugar to 1/3 cup and they are plenty sweet enough with only that amount of sugar.
Some people were worried in my last post that I had no good food left to eat after eliminating the foods containing FODMAPs. This is not quite true so I thought I would tell you some foods I can eat.
Bananas, blueberries, citrus fruits, grapes, kiwifruit, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes
Alfalfa, broccoli, capsicums, carrot, celery, eggplant, green beans, lettuce, potato, pumpkin, spinach, tomatoes, sweet potatoes
Amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat, corn, millet, oats, polenta, quinoa, rice
Sugar (sucrose), glucose, stevia, maple syrup, golden syrup (but never too much of them)
Meat, chicken, fish, all dairy products.
I can also eat almost all spices and herbs as well as dry wine and dark chocolate. So life is not all bad.
