Okay so I didn't quite get to prepare the Halloween recipe I had planned as my car broke down and I'm stuck at home! However, these delicious dark chocolate & coconut pretzel spiderwebs make the perfect Halloween treat. The bonus is they only need 3 ingredients!
Note on Pretzels: If you are a Coeliac, then make sure you use gluten free pretzels, otherwise if you are just on the low FODMAP diet you can use normal pretzels. The small amount of wheat in the pretzels is within the low FODMAP threshold. The recommended serving size is 2 spiderwebs.
Choose a dark chocolate that doesn't contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup or fructose. Also avoid dark chocolate that contains high FODMAP fruit or nuts.
Pretzels made from wheat flour are low FODMAP in 1/2 cup serves, however portion size is key so avoid larger serving sizes. Also avoid buying pretzels that are predominantly made from soy flour, lupin flour or besan/chickpea flour as the pretzels could container higher levels of FODMAPs.
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.
