Low FODMAP Ketchup Recipe

I’m guilty. I’m an adult and I like ketchup. I’m not sure when ketchup for adults became uncool, but I must have missed the memo. Sure, I have grown out of eating it on everything from spaghetti to sirloin, but there’s nothing like a burger and fries with ketchup.

For those on the low FODMAP diet, ketchup is one of those foods that is out due to the high fructose corn syrup. Even natural ketchup is usually out due to the addition of onion and/or garlic. I thought I would have to go without ketchup until I began experimenting and came up with this delicious low FODMAP ketchup recipe. French fries, beware.

Low FODMAP Potato Soup Recipe

As the weather cools down, I tend to crave hearty soups that warm your body all over. However, canned soups and the low FODMAP diet do not go well together. Wheat flour, garlic and onion are frequent ingredients in ready-made soups, so the majority of them (almost all) will not work.

That’s where Progresso Tuscany Chicken BrothLow FODMAP Products comes in. I found this little low FODMAP gem through Pinterest. I haven’t yet found this in stores, so I buy it from AmazonLow FODMAP Products. This allows me to make a variety of soups without having to start the broth from scratch.

Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Birthdays are always celebrated in my office with gourmet cupcakes. Even though cupcakes aren’t my favorite, I always feel a little left out of the celebration. The low FODMAP diet has a way of making followers feel isolated and excluded from events and celebrations… and it’s tough.

So when my birthday rolled around this year, I brought in a treat for the whole office, so they could see how delicious a restrictive diet can be. My co-workers couldn’t believe these yummy low FODMAP chocolate chip cookies were gluten free and dairy free.

This recipe has been adapted throughout the years. As a kid, I loved to bake and always made the best chocolate chip cookies, thanks to my Mom who passed down the recipe. When I went gluten free, I had to change the recipe and then when I went low FODMAP, I had to change the recipe once again. Lots of trial and error in the process, but is there really ever a “bad” cookie?

Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Shortening (I use Crisco)
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Extra Large Eggs
  • 2 1/4 Cups Gluten Free Flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour or Trader Joe’s Brand)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Xanthan Gum (I use Bob’s Red Mill. Do not  add this if it is already added into the Gluten Free Flour.)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (or 1 teaspoon Peppermint Extract for Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies… trust me, they’re amazing!)
  • 2 Cups Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream Shortening, Brown Sugar and Sugar together until well blended.
  3. Add Eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Gradually beat in Gluten Free Flour, Xanthan Gum, Baking Soda, Salt and Vanilla Extract.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Notes:

  • Cookies will not melt down and puff up in the oven like normal cookies. They keep the exact shape that you put them on the cookie sheet, so I try to keep them in a flatter circle shape as much as possible.
