Low FODMAP Coconut Chocolate “Cookie Dough” Blondies are insanely rich and moist. They are a little coconut-y, a little more chocolaty and overall very cookie dough-like. If you do not like “cookie dough” as a flavor and texture, please choose another recipe. If you are a “cookie dough” fan? These are going to be thrill you. Quick and easy to make in one bowl, too.
Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: makes 9-inch (23 cm) square pan; 25 blondies; 1 blondie per serving
• These blondies freeze very well. Wrap them individually with plastic wrap then place those in a zip-top bag and remove the air. Freeze for up to 1 month. I even like them straight out of the freezer, when very cold.
Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.
- Butter: Both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have lab tested butter. Monash states that a low FODMAP Green Light portion is 1 tablespoon or 19 g and also states that “butter is high in fat and does not contain carbohydrates (FODMAPs)”. FODMAP Friendly gives it a “Pass” at 1 tablespoon or 19 g. Both recommended serving sizes are presented as part of healthy eating guidelines, not as maximum FODMAP serving size. Fat can affect guy motility and trigger IBS symptoms in some people. Eat to your tolerance.
- Chocolate: Monash University has lab tested dark, milk and white chocolate all have low FODMAP amounts: 85% dark at 20 g; dark at 30 g; milk at 20 g; white at 25 g.
- Dried Coconut: Dried coconut has been lab tested by both FODMAP Friendly and Monash University. Monash states has established that the low FODMAP amount is ½ cup (30 g).
- Sugar: Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have both lab tested white, granulated sugar. Monash states that a Green Light low FODMAP serving size of white sugar is 1/4 cup (50 g). FODMAP Friendly simply states that they have tested 1 tablespoon and that it is low FODMAP. Regular granulated white sugar is sucrose, which is a disaccharide made up of equal parts glucose and fructose. Sucrose is broken down and absorbed efficiently in the small intestine.
Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
