Healthy Chewy Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies [Low FODMAP]

Say 'NO!' to disappointing, hard-as-rocks gluten- and dairy-free cookies and treat yourself to one of these heavenly low FODMAP chocolate chip cookies instead! Not only do they have the most amazing chewy, oaty texture, but they come in at less than 80 calories each, meaning you can still enjoy one even if you're watching your weight!

Low FODMAP snacks are not easy to come by. It wasn't until I was diagnosed with IBS that I discovered just how much good stuff contains gluten and dairy (spoiler: it's everything). But after just one bite of these fresh-from-the-oven low FODMAP chocolate chip cookies, you won't care about the lack of gluten or dairy. Heck, I bet you won't even notice! My boyfriend didn't have a clue and he automatically backs away as soon as I offer him anything low FODMAP diet-friendly.

These low FODMAP chocolate chip cookies are based on one of my all-time favourite and most popular recipes: the best ever healthy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I missed those crispy, chewy cookies so much that I tweaked the recipe a touch to make it work for anyone with IBS. I was hopeful, but I'm still genuinely shocked at how well they turned out. Just look at them. Don't you just want to dive into your screen and grab one?!

The only ingredients I had to change to make these cookies low FODMAP were the whole wheat flour (substituted with a gluten-free flour blend) and the skimmed milk (substituted for almond milk). Most IBS sufferers can stomach a small amount of low-lactose dairy, so the butter and the chocolate chips shouldn't be a problem. But if you're concerned, you can always use peanut butter instead of regular butter (yum!) and non-dairy chocolate chips.

I love using non-stick baking mats for low FODMAP recipes because you don't have to add any extra oils or fats and risk upsetting your stomach. What's your favourite low FODMAP cooking or baking hack?

  • 1 ½ cups oats
  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour blend
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  11. morag

    Hi cooked these but needed more moisture so added more equal amounts butter and milk. Could I just add extra milk and still work?

    • Nicola

      I don't see why not, Morag 🙂

  12. Sarah

    These were amazing . My fav low fodmap cookies ! I subbed some maple syrup for brown sugar and some monkfruit instead of reg sugar and they turned out delicious . Amazing

    • Nicola

      So glad you liked them, Sarah! 🙂

  13. Krystal

    I just made them. Only things I changed were the size; I used my smallest cookie scooper, so I ended up with 22 cookies, and I used Ghirardelli dairy free darknchocolate chips. Very good! I portioned two to each baggie, which I figured was roughly 1.5 servings of this recipe. So, roughly 120 calories. (Very roughly due to different chocolate being used and I measured that with my eyes, ha ha). Thank you!

    • Nicola

      I'm so glad you liked them, Krystal! I bet they were amazing with the Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips!
