I have just realised it was June when I last posted a recipe or anything else for that matter, How time rushes on! The above recipe was developed from a learning day at the hospital, everyone brought a low FODMAP dish to share with others – there is no better way of learning than to use practical experience. This recipe was developed by Majjda, Dietetic Assistant at Calderdale Royal Hospital.


Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 30 mins
Makes: 15 small flapjack slices
• 150g butter or lactose-free equivalent
• 175ml golden syrup or maple syrup
• 250g oats
• 25g mixed seeds
• A handful of any low FODMAP fruit that you like – I used sultanas
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
2. Heat the butter in a large saucepan on a low heat until melted
3. Stir in the oats until evenly mixed
4. Add the seeds and fruit and stir until mixed through
5. Pour into a lined baking tray and spread it flat with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
6. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 mins until golden brown. You can score guides for the slices while it’s warm if you like. Leave to cool, cut into squares or if you are really daring – circles and enjoy! This recipe is high in fibre and should be consumed as a treat as it is also high in fat and sugar.
