We asked, you answered! 

For this edition of FODMAP Your Faves, we asked whether you’d like to see pancakes, BBQ ribs, banana bread, or birthday cake. Our winner is BANANA BREAD! Our culinary team got busy and created the perfect recipe for the fluffiest, low FODMAP, gluten-free banana bread out there. More than just a fan-favorite comfort food, banana bread was the baking craze of 2020. Now you can grab your loaf pan and join in to make your very own low FODMAP banana bread! 

Are bananas low FODMAP?

The general answer is YES -- but some signs mean your banana is past ripe and no longer low FODMAP. Green? Great! Yellow? Good! Extra-ripe bananas with brown spots? Your gut might not be happy. 

A note from Epicured Chef Shannon: Beating eggs and sugar for 7 minutes matters

I learned this cooking method from Chef Joanne Chang, and it completely changed the way I bake! Beating eggs and sugar together is a key part of baking science. The reaction allows the cake to rise, fluff, and hold its structure. By beating for seven full minutes, the eggs will double in size, your banana bread will stay tender and moist, and rise well. It’s worth the extra effort!
