Keep It FODMAP Friendly

These low FODMAP chive and parmesan scones are an easy way to start your busy day! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.

First up, is buttermilk. If you’re in the elimination phase of the Low FODMAP Diet, you’ll need to use a lactose-free product. I normally make my own using lactose-free milk and lemon juice. I’ve included instructions in the recipe, below.

Next up is flour. If you’re in the elimination phase, you’ll need to use a gluten-free flour. For my Canadian peeps, I normally use President’s Choice all-purpose gluten-free flour. I like it because I can use it cup for cup and it doesn’t have any gums which is nice.

We’ll also be using chives. According to the Monash app, chives don’t have any detectable FODMAPs. That means you can use as many as you want without adding to your FODMAP load.

Our final ingredient is parmesan. Monash University says parmesan cheese is low FODMAP in servings of 1/3 of a cup per sitting. This is because bacteria break down most of the lactose while the cheese is fermenting. 4 cups or more are high in lactose. Our recipe uses 1/2 a cup total. This works out to 1 tbsp per scone, which is well within the recommended range.

Start your FODMAP-friendly morning off with one of these easy low FODMAP chive and parmesan scones!

Course: Breakfast, Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 172 kcal
Author: The FODMAP Formula
What You Need
  • 3/4 cup lactose-free milk (low Fat)
  • 3 tsp fresh lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives (minced)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan (grated)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
What You Do
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the lactose-free milk and lemon juice in a small measuring cup. Let it sit for 10 minutes undisturbed (this will make a low FODMAP buttermilk replacement)

  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, dry mustard, salt, and cayenne powder in a large bowl. Add the fresh chives and parmesan and stir. 

  3. Combine the buttermilk replacement, melted butter, and olive oil in a small bowl and mix until the butter starts to form clumps. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and gently mix them together until the dough is just barely holding together. 

  4. Turn the dough out onto the lined baking sheet and gently shape it into a 7" circle. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and nudge them apart so they have some breathing room (about 2" in between each wedge). Bake for 12-15 minutes.


Take a peek around 10 minutes to make sure you don't leave them in the oven too long. My first batch was a little toasty!
