Classic Low-FODMAP Sweet Potato Cobbler Recipe; Gluten-free, Vegan
September 15, 2019
I was inspired to create this low-FODMAP Sweet Potato Cobbler recipe last Thanksgiving. When I looked in my fridge on the Sunday after the holiday, I found nine apples (how did they get there?)
While apples are not something allowed on the low-FODMAP diet, I felt the need to whip up a dish so those apples wouldn’t go to waste. In less than an hour I had an apple cobbler in the oven. And I was determined to make something similar that we low-FODMAPPPERS can enjoy!
While apples are certainly lovely, I also adore sweet potatoes. I decided this would be the perfect compromise for a Thanksgiving treat that is both healthy and delicious.
There are so many things we can eat on the low-FODMAP diet. I never focus on the things we can’t. Look at my low-FODMAP food lists to see all the great options!
This low-FODMAP Sweet Potato Cobbler recipe is great for a low-FODMAP dessert, but also works as a breakfast or a side dish. It is just the right amount of low-FODMAP sweetness, with a fluffy crust and warm spicy flavors.
This low-FODMAP recipe is also SIMPLE with very little hands on time.

Classic Low-FODMAP Sweet Potato Cobbler; Gluten-free, Vegan
Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.
Prep time: 25 mins
Bake time: 75-85 mins
Total time: 110 min
Bake 350 F
Equipment: 9 by 13 inch rectangular pan
- 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 2.5 to 3 cups of sliced cooked sweet potatoes)
- FODMAP fact: 1/2 cup sweet potatoes is one low-FODMAP serving
- ½ cup (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, or low-FODMAP vegan spread such as Earth Balance for dairy-free, vegan version
- 1 & 1/4 cups low-FODMAP, gluten-free all purpose flour (I use Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend for all my baking- see my low-FODMAP bake off blog for the reason)
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (unless incorporated in your flour choice)
- 1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup low-FODMAP milk, such as canned coconut milk, almond milk or lactose-free milk (for non-dairy free, vegan version)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For low-FODMAP Syrup
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 & 1/2 cups hot water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 F and place rack in center of oven
- Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil
- Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them into rounds about 1/2-3/4 inch thick or smaller (can also cube)
- Place in the boiling water
- Cover the pan and cook for about 12 to 14 minutes, or just until they are still slightly firm in the center (do not overcook them)
- While this is boiling, prepare the low-FODMAP syrup coating
- Combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, hot water, vanilla, and cinnamon in a pot
- Stir until the sugars are dissolved
- Once the sweet potatoes are done, drain and set aside
- In a large bowl, mix together the low-FODMAP flour, xanthan gum baking powder, salt, sugar, vanilla and low-FODMAP milk until combined, set aside
- Put the butter or vegan spread in the baking dish and place it in the oven until the butter has melted, about 3 to 5 minutes
- Watch carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn
- Remove from oven and spoon the prepared batter over the center of the melted butter or vegan spread, but do not stir
- Arrange the sweet potatoes over the batter and pour the syrup mixture over the sweet potatoes
- It will seem like a lot of syrup
- Bake in the preheated oven for 75 to 85 minutes, or until the dough is set when tested with toothpick, and there is only a slight jiggle to the syrup
- Serve warm with low-FODMAP ice cream, or low-FODMAP Vanilla Bean Coconut Whipped cream for dessert, or simply plain for brunch or beside your Thanksgiving turkey!
- So delicious, low-FODMAP Sweet Potato Cobbler is perfect for any occasion.
