Looking for a sweet treat that travels? Whether you need a side-kick for your cup of tea or an afternoon pick-me-up to power through your day, these low FODMAP chocolate chip muffins are the treat to beat!
Summers are jam-packed at our house! Between my husband starting the busy season at work and training for my next marathon, our mornings are chaotic at best! Having these low FODMAP chocolate chip muffins tucked away in our freezer is a life saver!!
One of my favourite things about this recipe (other than the taste, of course), is that these muffins are freezer-friendly and thaw out quickly! I usually pull one out of the freezer when I get back from my run, and by the time I get out of the shower, it's ready to eat! This also makes it a great snack on-the-go, since you can pop it in your bag when you walk out the door and it will be ready whenever you are!
Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Looking for a tasty breakfast that travels? These simple low FODMAP chocolate chip muffins are in it to win it! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, flour. If you're in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP program, you'll need to use gluten-free flour. For my Canadian peeps, I'm in love with PC's gluten-free all-purpose flour.
Whatever you use, always double-check the label for other high FODMAP ingredients like coconut flour, almond flour, arrowroot flour, etc. And remember, you're avoiding the FODMAP fructan, not the gluten itself.
We'll also be using milk. If you're in the elimination phase, you'll need to use lactose-free milk. These muffins get their fat from vegetable oil, so you can use whatever low FODMAP milk you have on hand.
Last but not least, chocolate chips! Large servings of chocolate chips can be high in both lactose and fructans. I usually use Enjoy Life chocolate chips or chunks. I like this brand because it's dairy, wheat, and nut-free. These chocolate chips were also recently certified by the FODMAP Friendly crew, so they're definitely low FODMAP (yay!).
According to Enjoy Life, one serving of chocolate chips is 1 tbsp. Our recipe uses 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips total, which works out to about 2 tsp per muffin. This is well within the recommended range.
