Low FODMAP S’Mores bars (gluten-free)

s'mores bars - karlijnskitchen.com

Even though I have never been to America, I try to keep up with American food trends. And since I read blogs and use Pinterest that is quite easy to do. It is funny to see how things that are popular in America become popular in the Netherlands a year or so later too. S’Mores are things that I have never eaten in their original form (I know right!), but I know that they have been crazily popular for years and I really wanted to make a recipe with them. It is thé time of the year for s’mores and I love marshmallows, so I think this is going to be a winner for me. For a barbeque with friends at my place, I made these low FODMAP S’Mores bars. And oh man, this really is the perfect BBQ dessert!


In the Netherlands, we don’t have graham crackers, so I had to find an alternative for this. I found online that the cookies that we have here called “digestives” would be a good substitution, so I used my favourite gluten-free / low FODMAP digestives in this recipe. If you have access to low FODMAP graham crackers, I’d suggest you use those in this recipe. I also use marshmallow fluff in this recipe. It is important to check the ingrediënts of the marshmallow fluff because some brands contain high FODMAP ingrediënts. This recipe has been based on the recipe for S’Mores bars from the blog Something Swanky. I made this recipe low FODMAP.
