Low FODMAP apple crumble bars. Yes, you read that correctly: apple is low FODMAP up to 20 g per serving, yum! Gluten-free and lactose-free



For the crumble dough

  • 380 g gluten-free self-raising flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 225 g butter, melted*
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • A baking tin of 29 x 19 cm (7,5 x 11,5 inch)

For the apple filling

  • 240 gram apple (weigh this carefully!)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp corn starch


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line your baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. Put the self-raising flour together with the salt into a bowl and stir together.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan on low heat and put this together with the sugar and the vanilla extract into the bowl with the flour. Mix together with a spoon until you have a crumbly mixture.
  4. Divide half of the mixture over the baking tin and use the back of a spoon to form a smooth bottom.
  5. Peel the apples and cut them into small pieces. Put 240 gram apple in a bowl and add the lemon juice, corn starch and cinnamon. Stir together.
  6. Divide the apples over the bottom. Divide the other half of the crumble dough over the apples and press down carefully.
  7. Put the apple crumble bars in the oven for 35-40 minutes, until the top looks golden brown. Leave the apple crumble bars to cool down in the tin. Then remove them from the tin and cut into 12 pieces.
