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.
Low FODMAP Brownies
- 1 cup gluten free flour teff, buckwheat, or other gluten free flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder Dutch-process
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp butter or slightly melted coconut oil
- 1-1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips dairy free, such as Enjoy Life
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips dairy free, to sprinkle on top
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8"x8" pan with parchment paper.
- Stir flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in a medium sized bowl.
- Stir melted butter, sugar, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Then add eggs one at a time, stirring until just combined.
- Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir without overmixing - just until a few flour streaks remain. Fold in chocolate chips.
- Pour mixture into pan and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes if using teff or gluten free flour blend, or 15-20 minutes for buckwheat or whole wheat. A toothpick inserted in the middle will come out wet and a thin crust should have formed.
- Let cool. Cover and store at room temperature, or refrigerate for fudgier texture.
