Sunny Low-FODMAP Lemonies (Lemon Brownies/Blondies); Gluten-free
June 27, 2020Printer Friendly Version
I first read about Lemonies or ‘lemon brownies/blondies’ a few weeks ago and I couldn’t stop thinking about them! What a great idea for my blog. Simpler to make than a low-FODMAP Lemon Bar, but with the soft texture of a brownie, these sounded like heaven for a lemon fan like me.
These low-FODMAP Lemonies are moist, light and completely addictive. More of a ‘cake’ brownie than a ‘fudgy’ brownie, the sweet tartness of fresh lemon fits them perfectly!
Nothing beats the simplicity of a dessert bar, with easy clean up from one pan, but the flavor of a fancier recipe. You are going to put these low-FODMAP Lemonies on your favorites page for sure 🙂

Sunny Low-FODMAP Lemonies (Lemon Brownies or Blondies); Gluten-free
Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients
Prep time: 10 min
Bake time: 25-30 min
Total time: 35-40 min
Bake: 350 F
Equipment: 8 by 8 inch square pan, Baking spray, parchment for lining pan
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 3/4 cup, all purpose low-FODMAP, gluten-free flour
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (if not added to your flour choice- I prefer flour blends that do not have this added, as each recipe will need adjustments to ensure the best texture)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons lemon zest (fresh)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh)
- 1-2 medium lemons should provide enough juice and zest for this whole recipe including the glaze
- Do not substitute concentrates as the flavor will not be correct and these have not been tested for FODMAP levels
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
- For glaze:
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh)
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest for garnish (optional)
- 1 cup confectioner’s (icing) sugar
- Baking spray for greasing
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees°F and place rack in center of oven
- Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish with baking spray, shortening or butter and set aside (I like to use my low-FODMAP Magical Cake Pan Release Paste)
- If desired, line pan with parchment to ease removal
- Zest then juice 1-2 lemons and set aside
- In the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the low-FODMAP butter and sugar on high until well combined
- Lower speed to medium-high and add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition, then the lemon juice and zest slowly
- Scrape bowl as necessary
- Slowly add the low-FODMAP flour, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum and salt and mix until combined
- Add lemon extract and mix (adjust to your taste if you prefer a stronger lemon flavor)
- Spread into your prepared baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 mins
- As ovens vary, watch carefully and begin checking about 5 minutes earlier than end time
- Edges should be lightly gold and a tester should come out clean in the middle
- Leave in pan to cool on a wire rack
- Allow to cool completely before glazing
- While baking or cooling, prepare the low-FODMAP lemon glaze:
- In a small bowl, place confectioner’s sugar and whisk with lemon juice until desired consistency
- Spread the glaze over the cooled lemon brownies, sprinkle remaining 2 tsp zest over top as garnish
- Refrigerate until serving

Thank you SO much! What a lovely comment to read. Have a wonderful day!!
Can I use a handheld mixer with the traditional beaters if I don’t have a free standing mixer with a paddle attachment?
Thanks for this question! Yes that should also work.
