This low FODMAP sticky date self saucing pudding is so cosy and so delicious you won’t want to make anything else! In February 2023 Monash University (the leading researchers of the Low FODMAP Diet) retested dried dates and they are now low FODMAP in small serves. That means low FODMAP sticky date pudding can be back on the menu!
This pudding features a golden crispy crust and a light and fluffy pudding base that is surrounded by a rich butterscotch sauce - a combo that makes this dessert utterly delicious!
FODMAP note: According to Monash University small servings of dried dates are low FODMAP. We’ve done the math for you so all you need to do is follow the recipe instructions and divide the recipe into the recommended number of serves.
Dairy free option: Use a low FODMAP plant-based milk and dairy free spread.
SERVES 6 (large servings)
Buy a gluten free plain flour or gluten free all purpose flour. The one we used contains these ingredients: maize starch, rice flour, tapioca starch, rice bran, & guar gum. Avoid flour blends that contain soy flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour, coconut flour, amaranth flour, or lupin flour.
Low FODMAP milk options include lactose free milk, almond milk, hemp milk, macadamia milk, quinoa milk, rice milk (3/4 cup or less per serve), soy milk made from soy protein (not whole or hulled soybeans), UHT coconut milk (1/2 cup or less per serve).
Make sure your low FODMAP milk does not include high FODMAP ingredients like inulin (chicory root), agave syrup, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, or honey.
If using a dairy free alternative choose one that contains 120mg of calcium per 100ml serve, and 3g of protein per 100ml serve (this info is in the nutrition label).
There are no gluten free tips for this recipe.
Use a dairy free spread or olive oil spread instead of butter. Butter is considered low FODMAP.
