What desserts can you eat on a low Fodmap diet?

 

Because foods that are higher in sugar tend to be a no-no on a low FODMAP diet, you might be wondering what you can actually enjoy for a sweet treat. Luckily, some sweeter foods just need to be enjoyed in moderation to be considered low FODMAP approved, and there are also healthier alternatives that can be used instead of processed or high sugar options. 

Cake, brownies, lemon bars, popsicles, cookies, parfaits, and more can all be low FODMAP friendly given they are made with the right ingredients. Check out this list below and be inspired!
