Low-FODMAP Phyllo Wrapped Baked Brie with Brown Sugar & Nuts
November 2, 2019
As soon as I heard that phyllo pastry is low in FODMAPs (20 grams is a low-FODMAP serving) I rushed to my recipe box to find my mom’s old baked brie recipe. Although her sweet and creamy baked brie recipe called for raisins and apples, I like it even better with just nuts and the sweet glaze. You will be so happy to have this recipe for entertaining!
This low-FODMAP Phyllo Wrapped Baked Brie is the absolute best holiday or special evening appetizer or dessert. It goes perfectly with low-FODMAP Butter Crackers, low-FODMAP fruit and squares of dark chocolate. So smooth and rich, with the perfect accents of the cinnamon sugar nuts.
This low-FODMAP recipe uses sheets of phyllo pastry and it is super easy. Prep in just 15 minutes and you have a gorgeous and impressive side dish in under an hour. Note, however, that while it is low-FODMAP, it is not gluten-free.
