FODMAP Diet Almond Cookie Recipe

Having cracked making FODMAP diet cookies and biscuits, I've been experimenting with the basic recipe. I wouldn't normally post a recipe variation as a whole FODMAP post but I made these for a party recently and they were one of the most popular things with everybody who attended, so I thought I'd better share the recipe with you too.

175g gluten free flour
75g almonds
100g light brown soft sugar
1 tbsp chia seeds (or you could use ground flax/linseeds)
50ml almond milk or water
2 tablespoons golden syrup (or maple syrup)
2 tablespoons sunflower oil (or you could use rapeseed etc)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract

Makes 20
Put the chia seeds in a bowl with the almond milk and leave to soak for 5 minutes.Then combine with the syrup, oil, vanilla extract and salt. 

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until you have a stiff dough. Roll into a log and wrap in cling film. Put in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Remove the dough from the freezer and slice into 20 3/4 inch thick rounds.
Place on a baking sheet and bake at 180C/350F for 15 minutes or until just golden around the edges. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to crisp up.

  1. I have been put on a FODMap diet for SIBO, not IBS. Any suggestions on substitutes for soy sauce or tamari? I would like to try making chicken fried rice with the basmati rice I am allowed to have. Eating this new way has been a struggle for me as garlic and onions have been a huge part of my diet, my entire life. I have tried substituting chives and garlic infused oil. It is okay, but not great. I am not allowed to have sugar of any kind, including maple syrup (as this would feed the yeast in my small intestines). Any suggestions are welcome.
