Balance is essential when it comes to your diet, following a low FODMAP diet should not limit your ability to enjoy a sweet treat every so often. These brownies are perfect for an afternoon treat with a cup of tea or a delish dessert after dinner. They are simple enough to whip up and serve at any occasion. Serve these delectable brownies with a dollop of cream & some fresh strawberries.


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.
