I put together this list of 8 low-FODMAP Christmas Cookies because who doesn’t love a great cookie? Also, it’s National Cookie Day, so there’s that.
This past weekend while unpacking everything for the kitchen in the new house, I got wildly excited about cooking and baking again. And on Sunday, I just got side tracked (don’t tell Ryan!) from house stuff and just started digging in. I made tons of chia puddings, protein balls, and a Vinaigrette that’s to die for (I’ll share the recipe soon).
I also started thinking about organizing the kitchen.
While doing it all I wondered……would it be helpful for you for me to share more of this? The ingredients and foods we keep, how we organize, what we make, etc? You know the drill. Let me know if you like that idea.
For today, let’s chat low-FODMAP baking and some cookie recipes.
Now listen, full transparency, I do not need to eat low-FODMAP cookies currently. I said “Adios” to SIBO, so I haven’t been focused on making sure I’m only eating low-FODMAP.
Currently, I’m grabbing cookie recipes like:
- Paleo Chocolate Drop Cookies. I think this recipe could easily be turned into a low-FODMAP one.
- Basic Chocolate Chip Cookies. This recipe can easily be low-FODMAP. Swaps: 1-to-1 gluten-free flour for the all-purpose flour, verify the chocolate chips, and maple syrup for honey. Simple. And they are super good.
- Molasses Cookies. Molasses is not low-FODMAP and if you remove that from the recipe, well, then you might as well not even make them.
That said, so many of you reading this need a low-FODMAP cookie recipe for the holiday season, so I’ve got you covered with these 8 Low-FODMAP Christmas Cookies.
But first, I put together a list of 50+ low-FODMAP baking ingredients you might want to have on hand for the holiday season.
