Can't do oats? That's okay! This delicious ANZAC day slice is made using quinoa flakes instead of oats so you don't need to miss out. This slice makes a perfect snack. ANZAC Day is a special day in Australia and New Zealand where we celebrate our war heroes and give thanks to the soldiers who have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe.
Note on golden syrup: Golden syrup in low FODMAP in small 1/2 tablespoon serves but becomes high FODMAP in 1 tablespoon serves according to the Monash Low FODMAP app. This recipe only contains a small amount of golden syrup per serve and it is within the low FODMAP limits.
How to make golden syrup: If you can't find golden syrup in your local supermarket, then you can make it at home. Check out this link to find out how.
Buy a gluten free plain flour or gluten free all purpose flour. The one I 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.
Golden syrup is low FODMAP in 1/2 tablespoon serves. Be careful with your serving size as it does become high FODMAP in larger serves. If you are feeling concerned you can swap the golden syrup with pure maple syrup.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
Use a dairy free spread or olive oil spread instead of butter. Butter is considered low FODMAP.
