* fodmap tip:
*To make sure that your flour mix is fodmap friendly I recommend that you make your own gluten-free flour mix. Or always read the ingredients of the store-bought gluten-free flour mixes. Make sure your mix doesn’t contain soy flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour, coconut flour, amaranth flour, or lupin flour.
*Use common bananas, not sugar bananas. Use firm bananas (green to just yellow), very ripe bananas are high FODMAP.
*As a general rule always read the labels of the ingredients that you use as there can be sneaky FODMAP’s in any product. To educate yourself of which foods are high in FODMAP’s I’d strongly recommend downloading Monash Unversity FODMAP Diet App
If you are celiac or highly sensitive to gluten, buy certified gluten-free baking soda and baking powder. Both are naturally gluten-free, however, depending on the manufacturing place and process there can be cross-contamination.
