Low FODMAP chocolate chip banana bread
Banana bread remains one of my favourite healthy snacks to bake. The first banana bread that I tried was a recipe from the Dutch blog “Uit Pauline’s Keuken”. This recipe became a big hype here when banana bread just started to become popular. In 2015, I shared my very first banana bread recipe on the blog and after that followed a carrot cake banana bread and a recipe for a slightly less healthy banana bread. I shared this recipe for low FODMAP chocolate chip banana bread first in 2016, but I have given it a little update in 2020.
This is a classic banana bread recipe, but with chocolate chips added to make it even a little more tasty 😉 The combination banana and chocolate is just great! You can choose what kind of chocolate chips you want to use. White chocolate is low FODMAP up to 25 g per serving, milk chocolate up to 20 g per serving and dark chocolate up to 30 g per serving. If you use 50 g of chocolate chips in this recipe, one slice of banana bread contains only 4 g of chocolate, so it doesn’t matter which kind you pick. If you are very sensitive to lactose or want to make this recipe completely milk-free, you can best use dark chocolate.
Note: ripe bananas are low FODMAP up to 1/3 banana per portion (33 g) and unripe bananas are low FODMAP up to 100 g per serving. I use yellow bananas without brown spots for this recipe. Because these bananas are not unripe anymore and because this recipe also contains oats, which are in the fructans group, just like bananas. I advise to only eat one slice of banana bread per serving, to avoid FODMAP stacking. If you react well to fructans, you might be able to have 2 slices per serving, but I advise to test that out for yourself.
I think banana bread makes a great snack. I like bringing it with me to work or when I am on the go. I cut this banana bread into 12 slices after it has cooled down. I put it in a closed box or bag and put it into the freezer. Like this, I can take a slice out of the freezer every morning and take it with me. You only have to make some time to bake a banana bread in the weekend and then you have a healthy snack for the entire week. Ideal!

- Add the banana mixture to the flour and mix everything together.
- Add the eggs and the milk and stir everything together until you have a smooth mixture.
- Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
- Put the banana bread in the oven for about 45 minutes. The bread can need a little longer or shorter based on how fast your oven bakes. The banana bread is done when a toothpick comes out clean. When the banana bread becomes dark too quickly you can cover it with a piece of aluminium foil.
