These low FODMAP ANZAC biscuits are little gems. They are chunky and chewy with little hints of coconut and sweetness all rolled into a golden cookie.
They make a lovely afternoon snack with a cup of tea and are so easy to make from pantry staples.
FODMAP note: Golden syrup is low FODMAP in 1 teaspoon serves. That means this recipe is low FODMAP providing you divide it into the recommended number of cookies and then only eat 2 cookies per serve.
Rice flakes note: Rice flakes are used as a gluten free rolled oats substitute and are some times sold as gluten free rice porridge. Rice flakes look like tiny white flat discs. You can usually find these in the health food aisle or gluten free area of the grocery store. You can also swap these for quinoa flakes or rolled oats (if you tolerate them - please note rolled oats are not considered gluten free in NZ or Australia).
SERVES 18 (low fodmap serve is 2 cookies)
Check the mild curry powder does not include onion or garlic powder.
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.
