Unwrap the Magic of the Holidays with Low FODMAP Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

As the holiday season unfolds, there's nothing quite like the aroma of freshly baked cookies wafting through the air. 

This year, we invite you to indulge in the magic of the season with a special treat – Low FODMAP Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. We understand the importance of inclusivity, especially when it comes to festive delights, and these cookies are crafted with care to be not only delicious but also gentle on sensitive stomachs. Let everyone savor the joy of the holidays as we share the recipe for these delightful, crinkle-textured wonders.


Craft a delicious and digestive-friendly treat with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour, an ideal choice for Low FODMAP baking. This gluten-free flour is the foundation for a delightful texture without compromising dietary considerations. In Low FODMAP baking, avoiding traditional flours containing wheat, barley, or rye is wise, making alternatives like rice or oat flour preferable.

The unsweetened cocoa powder also introduces a layer of richness and flavor to these delectable creations, ensuring a satisfying and inclusive indulgence for those seeking a mindful approach to their dietary needs. In Low FODMAP baking, avoiding high-fructose sweeteners, such as honey or agave nectar, is advisable to ensure digestive comfort.

Personalization and Customization

The beauty of holiday baking lies in the opportunity to infuse personal flair into every creation. With our Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, customization takes center stage. Feel free to experiment with optional add-ins such as crushed peppermint for a refreshing twist, chopped nuts for added crunch, or festive sprinkles to evoke the holiday spirit. Let your creativity shine as you make these cookies uniquely yours. 

Here are a few cookie combinations to help you get started:

  • Zesty Orange Infusion: Enhance the flavor profile of your Low FODMAP chocolate crinkle cookies by incorporating a hint of zesty orange. Grate orange zest into the cookie dough for a citrusy kick that complements the rich chocolate, adding a citrus twist to this treat.
  • Toasted Pecan Crunch: Elevate the texture and taste of your cookies with a FODMAP-friendly addition of toasted pecans. Chop the nuts finely and fold them into the cookie dough before baking to impart a delightful crunch and nutty depth to each bite.
  • Peppermint Perfection: Embrace the holiday spirit by adding a festive touch to your chocolate crinkle cookies. Crushed peppermint candies or peppermint extract can be mixed into the dough for a burst of cool, minty freshness! 

Serving and Sharing

Once these delectable Low FODMAP Chocolate Crinkle Cookies cool from the oven with their crinkled tops, it's time to savor and share the festive spirit. Picture yourself enjoying them alongside a steaming cup of cocoa by the fireplace or as the center stage of a holiday dessert platter.

Share the love by gifting a batch to friends, family, or neighbors, spreading not just the taste of the season but also the warmth of inclusivity. These cookies are a celebration of joy, togetherness, and the magic that the holidays bring!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I substitute Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour with any other gluten-free flour?

While some gluten-free flours may work as substitutes, it's recommended to stick with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour for the best results, as it has been specifically formulated to mimic the properties of all-purpose flour in a 1:1 ratio. This ensures a reliable texture and taste, making it an excellent choice for Low FODMAP baking.

Are there alternative sweeteners I can use instead of granulated sugar in Low FODMAP baking?

Certainly! Opt for sweeteners with Low FODMAP, such as maple syrup or stevia, to replace granulated sugar. These alternatives provide sweetness without the high fructose levels that can cause digestive discomfort, allowing you to customize your treats while adhering to Low FODMAP guidelines.

Can I add nuts or other mix-ins to the chocolate crinkle cookies for extra flavor?

Absolutely! Personalizing your Low FODMAP chocolate crinkle cookies with additions like chopped nuts or other FODMAP-friendly mix-ins is a great way to enhance flavor and texture.
