Looking for a great Low FODMAP Banana Walnut Bread recipe? I’ve got your covered!

While bananas are often thought to be a High FODMAP food, a few things actually affect whether you can eat them or not.

  1. Ripeness: the more ripe a banana is (i.e. spots or brown) the higher in fructans (a type of FODMAP) it is. The less ripe (i.e. more green), the lower in fructans.

  2. Portion size: You can still eat ripe bananas, you just need to be more aware of your portion size. Monash recommends 35g as Low (which is about 1/2 a medium banana).

  3. Your specific food intolerances: If you’ve already completed the Low FODMAP diet elimination phase and know that fructans are not an issue for you, then bananas can 100% be included in your diet…and so should this bread 🙂

If you’re still in the elimination phase of the diet, keep this bread to 1 serving (1 slice = 1/12th of bread). If you’re testing out fructans, eating a bigger slice would be a good test. The rest of the bread is considered Low FODMAP regardless of portion size.
