The Best Low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Blondie Recipe (Cookie Bar); Gluten-free, Dairy-free
May 20, 2018
What is a blondie? Well, its kind of like a brownie, without the chocolate in the base dough. As a result, many call it a ‘vanilla brownie’. But I think it tastes more like ‘butterscotch’ than ‘vanilla’. The brown sugar in the low-FODMAP recipe gives it that lovely rich taste.
You may have also seen this labeled a (low-FODMAP) ‘chocolate chip cookie bar’. Regardless of the name, these low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Blondies are sure to be a favorite in your house!
I love the chewy texture, crisp caramelized edges, rich butterscotch dough and decadent chocolate chunks in these low-FODMAP Blondies. While I used low-FODMAP chocolate chunks, you can add pecans, coconut, or any low-FODMAP stir-in.
Low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Blondies are the ideal party dessert- kids go nuts over these delicious treats. Plus they don’t need any frosting so they have less sugar than a brownie.
I think I may like these better than my Ooey Gooey low-FODMAP brownies!
