Printer Friendly Version

No need to look further- this is the best low-FODMAP banana bread/banana muffin recipe ever!

Low-FODMAP banana bread is an absolute staple in our house. We like to enjoy this low-FODMAP moist and delicious treat almost every weekend. If making muffins, feel free to double or triple the recipe as they freeze well in freezer bags. You can also opt to use only low-FODMAP nuts, or chocolate chips based on your preference (definitely my kids favorite). This awesome low-FODMAP banana bread is gluten-free and dairy-free so everyone can enjoy it.
