FODMAP Olive Bread Recipe

Artisan breads are a bit of a treat but you shouldn't have to miss out if you are on the FODMAP diet plan. This recipe is FODMAP-friendly and a bit special so you don't have to walk past loafs of ciabbatta and drool (please tell me other people do that too). I like this with some chopped tomatoes, basil and olive oil or grilled the next day sprinkled with a little parmesan (which is ok on the FODMAP plan) and plenty of black pepper.

300g gluten-free bread flour (or use any blend of gluten free flour but add 1/2 tsp xantham gum)
250g milk substitute (I used soya milk as I don't have any problems with it)
4 tablespoons of pitted green olives
1tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tablespoon of olive oil

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the milk and stir until everything is just combined.Don't overmix - the mixture should be a bit damp.Shape into a rough round and score a cross on the top. Bake at 35-45 mins at 160c. Remove from oven and leave to cool on wire rack for 20 minutes before slicing


  1. This looks really good. I've just started on a FODMAP elimination diet and have struggled to find a shop bought bred that is FODMAP friendly, they all seem to have something in them that is a no-go on the FODMAP diet. So this bread recipe is great! I shall definitely be trying it.

    1. Thank you! Yes, many of the gluten-free ones still have ingredients that aren't FODMAP friendly. Let me know how you find the recipe.

  2. I'm new to the gluten free baking. I have a daughter that has recently been diagnosed with IBS, so I have cut out whole wheat. I have always made her homemade bread, and I'm constantly searching for flour that I can use. So will any gluten free flour be okay on the FODMAP diet? Could you recommend one? I dont think I want to use a nut flour though. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    1. If you are in the UK, I really rate the Doves farm gluten free flours. They have a good range and they do a special bread one. Otherwise, I think people rate Bob's Red Mill in the US. Hope that helps you and your daughter
