Low-FODMAP Phyllo Wrapped Baked Brie with Brown Sugar & Nuts

Print Friendly Version

As soon as I heard that phyllo pastry is low in FODMAPs (20 grams is a low-FODMAP serving) I rushed to my recipe box to find my mom’s old baked brie recipe.  Although her sweet and creamy baked brie recipe called for raisins and apples, I like it even better with just nuts and the sweet glaze.  You will be so happy to have this recipe for entertaining!

This low-FODMAP Phyllo Wrapped Baked Brie is the absolute best holiday or special evening appetizer or dessert.  It goes perfectly with low-FODMAP Butter Crackers, low-FODMAP fruit and squares of dark chocolate.  So smooth and rich, with the perfect accents of the cinnamon sugar nuts.

This low-FODMAP recipe uses sheets of phyllo pastry and it is super easy.  Prep in just 15 minutes and you have a gorgeous and impressive side dish in under an hour.  Note, however, that while it is low-FODMAP, it is not gluten-free.
