As we are now getting into the strawberry season I have noticed that strawberries are becoming more available in supermarkets and are regularly on offer or reduced in price at my local.

Yesterday I fancied a hot pudding that would warm me up as it was a rather chilly rainy evening. In the winter I used to always enjoy apple crumble to warm me up, but sadly apple is another one of my IBS triggers as it is high FODMAP being high in both fructose and polyols.

Although my original recipe would have used sugar I thought I would give it a try replacing the sugar with stevia to make the dessert sugar free and thus healthier.

Happy to report success first time and it was perfect to warm me up and stop my sweet cravings!
