Low FODMAP snacks can be difficult to come by! These delicious chewy snack balls are super easy to make (no baking required). To keep the snack balls fresh store them in an airtight container in the fridge.

Nut Free Option: To make these snack balls nut free use gluten free vanilla biscuits.

  1. Roughly crush the gluten free cornflakes (I do this using a plastic bag and either my hands or a rolling pin). Finely crush the gluten free plain or vanilla biscuits if using.
  2. Make sure the dairy free spread (olive oil spread or butter) is room temperature and slightly softened (but not melted). Place the cornflakes, brown sugar, shredded coconut, crushed biscuits (or almond meal), pumpkin seeds, dairy free spread (olive oil spread or butter), and water in a food processor. Process the ingredients until the mixture starts forming larger crumbs.
  3. Using your hands, press and roll the mixture into 14 snack sized balls. Roll each ball in finely shredded coconut.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. These balls are best served chilled or at room temperature (any hotter and the dairy free spread will melt).

Buying Tips

Buy gluten free cornflakes that do not contain any high FODMAP ingredients like inulin, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup.

Buy gluten free cookies that do not contain any high FODMAP ingredients like inulin, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup. Also check what low FODMAP flours have been used, avoid gluten free products that contain amaranth flour, lupin flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour or large amounts of soy flour or coconut flour.

Gluten Free Tips

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.

Dairy Free Tips

Use a dairy free spread or olive oil spread instead of butter. Butter is considered low FODMAP.
