Eating a low FODMAP diet doesn’t have to mean cutting out your favorite desserts! You can adapt most recipes to be low FODMAP-friendly, like this brownie recipe. The process is essentially the same as traditional brownies and it doesn’t have too many obscure ingredients – all things you likely already have or can find at any grocery store. 

This recipe uses gluten free flour and dairy free alternatives for ingredients to make the brownies enjoyable for everybody! You can use a couple different gluten free flours, but we recommend a measure-for-measure blend. You’ll also need Dutch-process cocoa powder, salt, butter or coconut oil, sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, and dairy free chocolate chips. The recipe starts with preheating the oven and lining a pan with parchment paper. In a medium, you’ll mix the dry ingredients – flour, cocoa powder, and salt. In a larger bowl, you’ll combine the butter, sugar, and vanilla before adding the eggs one at a time. Then the dry ingredients are stirred into the wet ingredients and the chocolate chips are folded in. The batter can now be poured into the pan and topped with the remaining chocolate chips. The brownies are baked for 20-22 minutes if using teff or gluten free flour blend, or until a thin crust forms.
 
These can be stored covered at room temperature or in the fridge for a fudgy brownie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten free flour teff, buckwheat, or other gluten free flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder Dutch-process

  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp butter or slightly melted coconut oil
  • 1-1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8"x8" pan with parchment paper.
