Two slices low FODMAP chocolate banana bread

Low FODMAP chocolate banana bread

A tasty, filling, and healthy snack that is suitable for different diets? I got you! This low FODMAP chocolate banana bread is also suitable for the SIBO diet, is fairly low in carbohydrates, and is also gluten-free and lactose-free.

It is not a very sweet banana bread, because no sugar has been added. This banana bread only gets its sweet flavor from the bananas it contains.

If you have a real sweet tooth, this banana bread might not be for you. But if you want a healthy snack with less sugar, then this bread is perfect.

I like to eat it with a layer of almond paste or peanut butter on top and then it is a delicious snack. Or, for example, take 2 slices for a yummy breakfast.

FODMAP and almonds

The only thing you have to watch out for with this banana bread is the almond flour. Almonds are quite limited low FODMAP.

33 grams of almond flour is low FODMAP. If you eat 39 grams or more, it contains an average amount of galactans and you can suffer from it.

For this banana bread, you use 150 grams of almond flour and you get 12 slices out of it. One slice contains 12.5 grams of almond flour. So you can safely eat 2 slices at a time.

Just don’t spread almond butter on top, because then you will go over the low FODMAP amount.

If you have already passed the reintroduction phase and you know that you tolerate galactans well, you can, of course, do so.

The SIBO diet

If you follow a SIBO diet and you are still in the strict phases, I recommend taking a maximum of 1-2 slices of this banana bread at a time.

Only 2 teaspoons (about 20 grams) of almond flour are allowed. Cocoa powder is also allowed to a limited extent. You can also omit this to make a plain banana bread.
