FODMAP Friendly Mixed Berry Crumble

FODMAP Friendly Mixed Berry Crumble

I madly miss eating stewed fruit and apple crumble but this recipe is a great FODMAP friendly alternative. I can’t actually remember the last time I ate and apple or a pear, I use to be an apple a day person though. There is nothing better than chomping into a crispy sweet apple but I guess we all have to make sacrifices don’t we?

FODMAP Friendly Lemon Curd

When life gives you lemons, what do you make? Lemon curd of course! I could have made lemonade (which is probably what you were thinking), instead I made this FODMAP friendly, dairy and refined sugar free version of my favourite lemon curd. It’s so delicious and has so many different uses! Continue Reading…

FODMAP Carrot Cake

FODMAP Carrot Cake

‘Everything in moderation’ is my motto – meaning cake every now and then is more than ok! I also love baking, so being able to eat the finished product is just an added bonus. This recipe is another one modified from a family favourite and taught to me by my Mum when I was younger and a good helper in the kitchen!

Fructose Friendly ANZAC Biscuits

April 23, 2015
ANZAC BISCUITS | I've modified a family recipe to created these fructose friendly and dairy free ANZAC biscuits! Recipe is up on the blog now, link in profile. You can also read a little about my visit to Gallipoli. Lest we forget.
Two years ago I was lucky enough to travel to Gallipoli in Turkey and pay tribute to our fallen soldiers. Baking a batch of ANZAC biscuits is a must do around ANZAC day so I decided it was a must to modify an old family recipe to be fructose friendly and dairy free.

Fructose Friendly Pumpkin Crumble

Pumpkin Crumble

Something I really miss eating on a fructose friendly and low FODMAP diet is apple crumble or apple and rhubarb crumble, I’m sure you can all relate! I have been craving it the past few days and all of a sudden I had a brilliant idea. My craving for crumble, plus an excess of pumpkin in the fridge, equals Pumpkin Crumble!!

Over the weekend we had some good friends come to visit and as I usually do, I decided to get cooking! I love the fact that when you are cooking for yourself you know EXACTLY what is going into your meal and don’t end up with any little surprises! One of our visitors was lactose intolerant so coming up with a FODMAP/dairy free dessert was a must. We couldn’t have anyone missing out on dessert, that is the best part of a meal!

Well apparently it ‘National Peanut Butter Day’ in the states today, I’m not sure that such a thing exists in Australia but I don’t need a reason to eat peanut butter! Peanut Butter is one of my favourites and what better way than to have it than sandwiched between two rounds of chocolatey goodness. This ‘chocolate’ is also dairy free and remind me of the good old coconut rough chocolates from the milkbar. Continue Reading…
