Low FODMAP Summer Bruschetta Bites

One thing I love about living in Ontario is eating fresh, local strawberries. These summer bruschetta bites are the perfect way to enjoy these low FODMAP berries. While they make a great appetizer you can also try them as a healthy dessert or snack.

Keep it FODMAP Friendly

Since there are only 4 ingredients in our summer bruschetta bites, they’re easy to keep low FODMAP. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.

Our first ingredient is strawberries. According to Monash University, strawberries don’t have any FODMAPs. This means they won’t add to your FODMAP load.

This recipe also uses feta cheese. The Monash app says feta is safe in servings of 1/2 a cup. This recipe uses 1/4 cup of feta, which works out to 0.2 tbsp per bruschetta round. This is within the recommended range.

The final thing you need to think about is your bruschetta base. If you’re in the elimination phase, you’ll need a gluten-free bread or cracker.

I used Glutino gluten-free bagel bites (original flavour). I like these for two reasons: 1) they are a little salty which makes the recipe a bit savoury, and 2) they’re sturdier than crackers. This means your bruschetta bites won’t get soggy – even if your guests aren’t quite on time).

Remember, unless you have celiac disease, you’re avoiding the FODMAP fructan, not the gluten itself.

    These look yummy and perfect for a summer snack. I will try this for sure soon.

  • Roxy

    I LOVE brushetta! I have to give this recipe a try this summer. Can probably modify it and do regular brushetta too!

    • Amy Agur

      This recipe is really adaptable! Remember to send me a photo on Instagram so I can see what you tweaked and what you tried using the hashtag #fodmapformula.

  • Makeup Discourse

    So delish!
    I’ll try making these for midnight snacking.

  • Amrita

    Looks beautiful and delicious. Strawberry basil feta are all healthy and will be refreshing for summers !

  • Aitza B

    Eeekk!!! I have to give this a try. Although I’m not a big bread person, strawberries are my favourite fruit so it is an automatic yes for me.

    • Amy Agur

      Hi, Aitza! I eat half of it right out of the bowl, so the bread component isn’t a requirement if it’s not your thing.

  • Nadalie

    OHH how yummy, it probably has a great crunch when you bite into it. Sadly for me Bruschetta Bites aren’t in the cards for me with my gluten allergy, you just cannot get the right texture of GF bread. It wouldn’t be nearly as good.

    • Amy Agur

      Hi, Nadalie! I am not a huge fan of gluten-free bread either! I normally use gluten-free crackers instead (the ones pictured are Glutinos Bagel Bites). This is also delicious with corn tortilla chips. Make sure you get the unsalted kind, though.

    I love bruschetta as it is so quick to make. Never tried it with strawberry but it does sound interesting.
