Five-Minute Low-FODMAP Almond Butter White Chocolate Microwave Cookie; Gluten-free, Vegetarian

Print Friendly Version

Do you ever crave a low-FODMAP sweet treat and feel frustrated that everything in the pantry is high-FODMAP (or not good)?

Do you sometimes end up cheating and eating something you regret just to satisfy your craving?

Me too.

It needs to stop.

Here is my solution!   My low-FODMAP Mug Cakes (like my low-FODMAP Pumpkin Mug Cake, low-FODMAP Chocolate Mug Cake and low-FODMAP PB & J Mug Cake), low-FODMAP Mug Muffins (like my low-FODMAP Maple Cinnamon Pecan Mug Muffin and low-FODMAP Banana Chocolate Chip Mug Muffin) and low-FODMAP Microwave Cookies (like my low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip).

Adding to that delicious line-up, here is my low-FODMAP Almond Butter White Chocolate Microwave Cookie.  As much as I love peanut butter, I wanted something a little more neutral, and the almond butter is absolutely perfect!

Five minutes, basic ingredients, and you can have a warm and delicious low-FODMAP and gluten-free cookie.

I didn’t add macadamia nuts to this white chocolate confection, because I don’t love the flavor of nuts in a no-bake cookie.  Be aware that there is already a maximum amount of almond butter per low-FODMAP serving, so make sure you tolerate multiple serves of nuts if you choose to add chopped macadamias.

If you prefer to use semi-sweet chocolate chips, sunflower seed butter or peanut butter, those substitutions would also be delicious 🙂
