Banoffee Pie (serves 8-10)

Banoffee Pie by The Fat Foodie

Banoffee pie is a gorgeous dessert that’s incredibly luxurious, but it’s actually surprisingly easy to make. When I set out to make this Banoffee Pie I wasn’t sure how feasible it would be to make it dairy-free, but it turns out that it’s completely do-able thanks to the existence of coconut-based condensed milk.

Bircher muesli is a much lighter breakfast option than overnight oats because it’s made with a combination of 50% natural yoghurt (or a non-dairy option) and 50% water. It’s also much lighter because it contains grated apples and chopped banana. I know that apples have had a bad rap on the FODMAP street for a long time because initially Monash listed them as simply high FODMAP, but they’ve since been retested and now small 20g portions of Pink Lady and Granny Smith apples have been recategorised as low FODMAP. So, it’s time to re-embrace the humble apple, folks! Continue reading
