Everyone’s Favorite Low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version

Low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread was a recipe created for my children.  Although they love all my baking (well, almost all), they repeatedly request low-FODMAP chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chip muffins and chocolate chip muffin tops.  This is my answer to all three 🙂

My low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread is delicious, with a lovely light crumb.  It has an amazing caramelized outside (my favorite part), and a soft inside…just like the world’s favorite cookie!

However, if you’re craving a ‘gooey’ low-FODMAP quick bread, then you may prefer my low-FODMAP Banana Bread, low-FODMAP Pumpkin Bread or low-FODMAP Zucchini Bread.  Sooo many choices!

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 12

Bake 350 F

Prep time: 15 minutes plus cooling

Bake time: 55-65 min (ovens vary, yours may need a little more or less)

Total time: 70-90 min plus cooling

Equipment: 9 by 5 inch loaf pan, parchment paper for lining (I used an aluminum loaf pan)


  • 1 & 3/4 cups Authentic Foods GF flour or other low-FODMAP gluten-free flour (I prefer this brand of flour- see my low-FODMAP bake off blog for the reason!)
  • 1 & ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ tsp xanthan gum (if not added to your low-FODMAP flour)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup lactose-free yogurt or Greek yogurt or lactose-free sour cream
    • I used lactose-free sour cream
  • ¼ cup low-FODMAP milk (such as lactose-free or almond milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (120 g) semisweet chocolate chips
    • 30 g is one low-FODMAP serving
    • To keep the chips from sinking to the bottom, you can opt to toss them in a tablespoon of your flour blend before incorporating
  • Vegetable shortening for greasing (or my low-FODMAP Magical Cake Pan Release Paste)
  • For topping: coarse decorating sugar and additional chocolate chips
    • If you don’t have coarse sugar, then you can substitute turbinado sugar or granulated sugar
  • For optional glaze: low-FODMAP Vanilla Glaze, low-FODMAP Cream Cheese Frosting, low-FODMAP Vanilla Buttercream, low-FODMAP Chocolate Ganache


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Grease loaf pan, line with parchment and grease this as well
  • Mix low-FODMAP flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and 2 sugars in medium bowl
    • Make sure to get any clumps out of your brown sugar
  • In a separate large bowl of stand mixer with flat paddle, beat eggs until light and fluffy on high (about 3 minutes)
  • Add canola oil and blend again on medium
  • Turn mixer to low speed
  • Add the flour mixture, then lactose-free yogurt or sour cream, low-FODMAP milk and vanilla extract
  • Mix until just blended
  • Fold in chocolate chips by hand (if desired, toss your chips in about 1 tbsp of flour before stirring in, to keep them from sinking)
  • Pour batter into loaf pan and sprinkle with coarse decorating sugar and additional chips
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes or until tester is clean (as ovens vary, yours may need more/less time. You may wish to check about 10 minutes prior to end time to be safe)
    • The top may crack slightly, that is normal
    • Be careful with your tester!  The chocolate chips may fool you 🙂
  • Cool for 5 minutes in pan, then remove from pan and cool on wire rack
  • Glaze if desired, with your choice of above glazes

This bread is easier to slice when cooled or chilled; but my kids and I love to warm the slices for 15 seconds in the microwave before eating 🙂

    This was yummy, but took less than an hour to bake in my oven. I topped the bread with a vanilla-cinnamon-sugar blend. If you make this, set your oven timer for 50 minutes and then keep checking.

    1. Julie,
      Thanks for the feedback! Ovens can vary between 10-25 degrees on average, so ours may be a bit on the low side (even with our oven thermometer). We really appreciate the feedback on the time, and made an adjustment to the recipe instructions 🙂
      Have a great day!!
