Five-Minute Low-FODMAP Almond Butter White Chocolate Microwave Cookie; Gluten-free, Vegetarian
January 1, 2020
Do you ever crave a low-FODMAP sweet treat and feel frustrated that everything in the pantry is high-FODMAP (or not good)?
Do you sometimes end up cheating and eating something you regret just to satisfy your craving?
It needs to stop.
Here is my solution! My low-FODMAP Mug Cakes (like my low-FODMAP Pumpkin Mug Cake, low-FODMAP Chocolate Mug Cake and low-FODMAP PB & J Mug Cake), low-FODMAP Mug Muffins (like my low-FODMAP Maple Cinnamon Pecan Mug Muffin and low-FODMAP Banana Chocolate Chip Mug Muffin) and low-FODMAP Microwave Cookies (like my low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip).
Adding to that delicious line-up, here is my low-FODMAP Almond Butter White Chocolate Microwave Cookie. As much as I love peanut butter, I wanted something a little more neutral, and the almond butter is absolutely perfect!
Five minutes, basic ingredients, and you can have a warm and delicious low-FODMAP and gluten-free cookie.
I didn’t add macadamia nuts to this white chocolate confection, because I don’t love the flavor of nuts in a no-bake cookie. Be aware that there is already a maximum amount of almond butter per low-FODMAP serving, so make sure you tolerate multiple serves of nuts if you choose to add chopped macadamias.
If you prefer to use semi-sweet chocolate chips, sunflower seed butter or peanut butter, those substitutions would also be delicious 🙂
