Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Cashew Bread with Blueberry Jam

cashew-bread-with-blueberry-jam2__no-sugarless-gum

I have been trying a lot of foods lately that I wasn’t able to eat before, and they have all been a great success.  Mostly I’m trying vegetables and spices since I’m going to continue to eat healthy from now on, but I did splurge on pizza for my birthday with no consequences!  I really think my fructose malabsorption is gone.  I don’t really want to take the test again, since I’m afraid of that liquid fructose you have to drink, but I’m curious.  Would anyone else want to know if my FM is gone?

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Cinnamon Tea Cake

Cinnamon Tea Cake2__No Sugarless Gum

Recently I was talking with my grandma and the subject of this blog came up.  She said she loves to read it when she wakes up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep!  Glad I can bore you, Grandma!  (She did clarify she just reads it until her midnight martini kicks in, and THAT’S how she falls asleep…)

I posted a while back about a Cinnamon Crusted Banana Bread that I really like.  In the post I included a link to a different bread you can make if you have an egg allergy or avoid eggs for another reason.  I was having a bit of an allergic reaction to eggs for a while, so I had to switch over to that other bread…and found that I liked it way better!  It tastes a lot less banana-like and I enjoyed the texture more.

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Sandwich Bread

Sandwich Bread__No Sugarless Gum

Last weekend I made a really great bread from the blog An Edible Mosaic.  I’m not going to rewrite the recipe here because I didn’t need to substitute anything!  Although I did use water instead of coconut milk and it worked great.  Though it looks a little different from the original and I’m guessing that’s why.

I really wanted to get that cool break in the top of the bread that the original pictures had.  I’m not sure what caused it (or why I was so into it) but I guess it just happens! Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Eggless Plantain Bread

Flourless, Eggless Plaintain Bread3__No Sugarless GumI started this blog because when I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption I felt so alone.  I had never heard of this condition and I realized very early on that it’s hard to find support in people who don’t have a dietary disorder.  So I not only wanted to find recipes that were helpful, but I wanted to talk about my experiences.  Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Easy Nut-Butter Bread

Easy Nut Butter Bread4__No Sugarless GumMaking bread can’t possibly be any easier than this.  Or more delicious.  I found this recipe on Supermom CEO and didn’t have to change a thing!  You can use any nut butter you want (I used almond) even peanut butter!  Except, I wouldn’t use peanut butter.  It left a weird burning feeling on my tongue. Continue reading

Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Almond Bagels

Almond Bagels3

***Please read this post before trying these!!!***

If you miss having real bread, then you’re going to love this recipe.  I found it on the blog Delicious As It Looks, and it has helped me look forward to eating breakfast again.  The original recipe calls for glucose syrup, but since that lists corn syrup as the only ingredient, it made me nervous.  So I tried making them with different sugars.
