Print Recipe

½ cup gluten-free flour

64 g 2.3 oz

½ cup rolled oats

60 g 2.1 oz

½ tsp xanthan gum

2 g 0.07 oz

¼ tsp baking powder

1.5 g 0.05 oz

⅓ cup cocoa powder

35 g 1.2 oz

⅔ cup caster sugar

135 g 4.8 oz

2 eggs, lightly beaten

117 g 4.1 oz

Butter, melted

75 g 2.7 oz

¼ cup plain greek yoghurt (lactose-free if required)

67 g 2.4 oz

1 tsp vanilla essence

5 g 0.2 oz

¼ cup dark chocolate chips

45 g 1.6 oz


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°C. Line a slice/brownie tin (20 x 30cm) with baking paper.

  2. Add rolled oats to a food processor and blitz into a fine flour. Add to a large mixing bowl.

  3. Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into the mixing bowl with oats. Stir in sugar and xanthan gum.

  4. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Add eggs, vanilla essence, melted butter and yoghurt. Stir until just combined.

  5. Using a spatula, gently fold in chocolate chips, taking care not to overmix the batter. Add a dash or two of milk if batter seems too thick to pour into tin.

  6. Pour mixture into prepared slice tin and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out with a few crumbs clinging.

  7. Allow brownies to cool completely before removing from tin and slicing. Serve dusted with icing sugar or extra cocoa powder if desired.


  • Always check ingredients list of gluten free flour mixes for high FODMAP ingredients such as flours based on lupin, chickpeas or other legumes.
  • Xanthan gum has not been tested for FODMAPs, however due to its chemical structure, we believe this to be low in FODMAPs.
  • Why not try different flavour combinations - instead of chocolate chips, add low FODMAP berries or chopped low FODMAP nuts such as pecans, walnuts, peanuts or macadamia nuts.
