Chocolate Cookies 2 Ways (Low-FODMAP Recipe)

low-FODMAP Chocolate Cookies

Ahh, cookies… Since going gluten-free I don’t think there’s anything I’ve missed more than biscuits and cookies. These cookies satisfy even the worst cravings and are actually quite healthy, since there’s no added sugar (although you can add sugar if you find they aren’t sweet enough for you). This recipe can also be easily doubled up to make 12 cookies – although I like to make 6 of each kind and bake them together, as shown on the photos.

Preparation time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 15 mins

Makes: 6 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana (as brown and mushy as possible)
  • 4 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter (or other nut butter of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp of baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp water or lactose-free milk of your choice
  • Dark chocolate chips

*You can also substitute the chocolate chips for a tablespoon of cocoa powder (make sure there is no dairy in there). Just use one less tablespoon of flour if you do this. Both recipes are equally delicious, and I like how the two kinds of cookies look on a plate :)

Instructions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 180°c and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

2. In a food processor, mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chips (if using) and the water/milk. You should end up with a sticky dough like this:

3. Add the water or milk gradually, whilst continuing to mix. You might not need it all – test the dough in your hands and add more if you can’t form balls with it.

4. Once mixed, use a tablespoon to scoop out a small amount of the dough and roll into a ball using your hands. Press into a flat-ish shape and lay onto your baking sheet.

5. If using chocolate chips, press them evenly onto the top of your cookies. Alternatively, you could add them to the dough in the mixer right at the end, so they are evenly distributed throughout the cookies. I like them on the top though :)

6. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

7. Leave to cool (if you can wait that long) and enjoy your cookies with a nice cup of tea!
