I'd like to start a discussion on fructose malabsorption, how to control it, what to eat and not eat, etc. . Is anybody interested?

"Sugar free" cookie recipe for the holidays. This shortbread cookie recipe originally came from Natural Grocers, but I adapted it a bit, leaving out the sugar, etc. Here are the ingredients: 1 c. almond flour (not almond meal), 1/2 tsp. salt, 4 T Pompeian Extra Light Tasting olive oil, 1 tsp. Frontier coop organic non GmO vanilla extract. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet and set aside. Mix dry ingredients together until well combined. Mix the olive oil and vanilla extract and then add to the dry ingredients, stirring until well blended, Form the dough into walnut-sized balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes total; cookies should be browned a bit . Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing from cookie sheet. Store in air-tight container in the refrigerator. Note: even though there is no table sugar added, almond flour has fructans in it and vanilla extract has some sugar. I was able to get away with eating one cookie a day for 3 days in a row and then had to stop. They are delicious and the first dessert I'd had in over 10 years.
Not restricted from spices per se. Just no onions or garlic right now. I always check the FODMAP list or email my nutritionist if in doubt. I use salt, pepper, can use garlic infused olive oil but no garlic. I use cinnamon and vanilla extract. Nutritionist does not want me eating a lot of potatoes right now either. Take longer to digest. I am allowed to have a few spoonfuls of rice and a few bites of potato here and there. Just not regularly I have tried reintroducing lentils and can eat them in small amounts if properly cooked. I have no problem consuming meats, eggs, etc. Everybody is different.

I noticed in one of your posts you take L-glutamine. I also take that regularly, twice a day. Bulksupplements.com or nutriabio.com are good places to get it at a reasonable price. I get the L-alanine from Bulksupplements as well.
Cookies sound delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe
Hope you haven't made them yet. It should be 1/4 t salt, not 1/2 t. Sorry!
Should be 1/4 t salt, not 1/2 t.
@kay 57. I did a little research over the holidays and fresh cilantro, basil and bay leaf should have no sugars. Cloves has about the same is cinnamon, so should be ok. I have yet to try these.

Thanks so much for you thoughtful message. I hadn't thought of making cinnamon "tea"; eat cinnamon every day. Don't think ginger would agree. Do you have fructose malabsorption?
Is anyone taking one of the medications available for IBS? The Low FODMAP diet is not working out for me and I am going to discuss options (including meds) with my doctor. Would like to know others’ experiences.
Medicines used depend on the symptoms you have. As for the diet, I tried it on my own and it was a total disaster until I went under guidance of a nutritionist.
