Low FODMAP banana in bacon coat is a dish usually made with dates. Dates are high in FODMAP so, unfortunately, a no-go. I really love dates in bacon coat, but my digestion system has never rellay liked it. Now I know why…

When we were in China, last year, we got something that looked like this fantastic dish: Banana with bacon coat! It sounds undeniably a little odd and my brother in law hesiteated when he saw it. In fact, he thought I was crazy when I reached for them and loaded my plate. I asked if he liked dates in bacon coat and he nodded. “Well, then you should try!” I said. Hehe, he loved it, and so did I.

The bananas get lightly sweetened in the oven and can remind of dates, so really, it’s not far from the original dish. If you believe it or not! And the best? It’s 100% low FODMAP!

If you’re having tapas you should try to make sourdougbread from spelt, which is low FODMAP.

To make Low FODMAP banana in bacon coat you will need:


thinly sliced bacon


Preheat the oven to 200 °c/392°f

Cut the banana in 3-4 pieces and cut these slices in 4. Wrap the thinly slices bacon around the banana and place it on a baking tray. Bake in middle of the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the bacon is cooked properly.

Serve it as a tapas dish. More tapas recieps will come!

Ripe bananas have been reasently retested by Monash University. Thet are low in FODMAP with a limitation of 1/3 banana. However some people can tolerate more, and some can have less. If you already tolerate ripe bananas, you can continue eating it! Unripe bananas is still low FODMAP (however, not very nice, in my opinion… 🙂 )
