Hello from NYC. I am here on business having a great time talking about FODMAPs. Yesterday, I met with a wonderful group of forward thinking dietitians. I truly love working with dietitians, they are smart, compassionate, and love to learn!
Today, I thought I would share my latest recipe with you, Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies!
Cookies for breakfast? Ummm…why not? Of course, I added a little side of fruit!
I am a big fan of carrot cake (made it for my wedding cake) and I thought the flavors might make up a delicious carrot cake breakfast cookie. I get my best recipe inspiration when I go for a run. This cookie recipe is courtesy of a great run I had last Saturday. It is amazing how running can clear my mind and gets my creative energy going.
These cookies were yum. I added some finely chopped raisins (don’t worry, I kept within the Monash U low FODMAP cut off), just enough grated carrots and a few chopped walnuts to provide all the yummy flavors and good nutrition every carrot cake cookie deserves. I would start with a 2 cookie limit and check your tolerance…I find I can eat 3 cookies without any tummy trouble. 😉
In other news, Nestle Health Science has launched a new FODMAP website. You may see some of my recipes on their site as I provided a few for their site! 🙂 Having Nestle interested in the area of FODMAPs will help bring greater awareness to IBS and the low FODMAP diet. There are so many people out there suffering with debilitating symptoms of IBS…and knowledge and exposure of the low FODMAP diet is so important!
