Some afternoons you just need biscuits to nibble on with your cup of tea. What you don’t need is the calories that come with it, or for some of us, the upset tummies that follow! Following a low FODMAP diet and identifying my triggers with this diet has helped me manage my irritable bowl syndrome symptoms, so I’ve made some cookies that are low FODMAP to cater for those who also experience the symptoms of IBS! These are chai-spiced shortbread biscuits that are also dairy free, gluten free and refined sugar free. A good pantry staple to have on hand for lunch boxes or afternoon and evening nibbles. They’re a family favourite in our house!
