Looking for a sweet treat to curb your chocolate cravings? Packed with three kinds of chocolate these low FODMAP brownies are sure to keep your sweet tooth and your tummy satisfied!
I made these brownies for the first time at Thanksgiving. My family was traveling, so a friend and I decided to host a tiny party all on our own.
These brownies were supposed to be the crowning jewel of my first solo Thanksgiving dinner. My husband, bless him, tried one and immediately spit it out. “Oh hunny,” he said, deadpan. “You can't serve these, they're awful!”
With company coming in less than 5 minutes and no backup plan, naturally, I burst into tears. Thanksgiving was done. It was over. Forget it! – I'm very dramatic when I'm cooking…
I was so upset it took my husband three tries to communicate that this was all a horribly ill-timed dad joke. Apparently, these are the best brownies he's ever had and he thought that would be obvious.
So, the moral of the story is that these brownies are epic and my husband doesn't get to try new recipes before I do anymore… Hopefully, you enjoy these brownies with a few less tears!

Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Looking for a rich, chewy dessert to tame your sweet tooth? These low FODMAP brownies may be the best thing you've ever tasted! Check out the notes below to keep this recipe FODMAP-friendly.
First up, dark chocolate! According to the Monash app, dark chocolate is safe in servings of 1 oz. Servings of 3 oz or more are high in lactose, while servings of 4.5 oz are high in both lactose and fructans.
Our recipe uses 4 oz of chocolate for 18 brownies. That works out to 0.2 oz per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Next up, cocoa powder. According to Monash, cocoa powder is low FODMAP in servings of 2 heaped tsp per sitting. Servings of 5 tsp or more are high in both fructans and oligosaccharides.
We use 1 cup of cocoa powder, which works out to 2 heaped tsp per serving. This is within Monash's recommended range.
We'll also be using chocolate chunks. For my North American peeps, Enjoy life chocolate chips and chunks have just been certified as low FODMAP! If you can't find low FODMAP chocolate chips, don't panic! There is still a ridiculous amount of chocolate in this recipe!
