Fody's Low FODMAP Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Breakfast Cookies Ingredients

  • 1 cup (99 g) old-fashioned rolled oats; use gluten-free if following a gluten-free diet
  • 1/2 cup (73 g) low FODMAP gluten-free all-purpose flour, such as Bob Red Mill’s Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour
  • 1/2 cup (83 g) raisins
  • ¼ cup (25 g) toasted walnut halves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder; use gluten-free if following a gluten-free diet
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small, very ripe banana (75g), fork mashed
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) neutral-flavored vegetable oil, such as rice bran or canola
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions for Fody's Low FODMAP Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Breakfast Cookies

Preheat oven to 325  (165 ). Line a baking pan with parchment paper; set aside

In a large mixing bowl place the oats, flour, raisins, nuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, cinnamon, baking powder and salt and whisk together to blend and combine. Make a well in the center.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, maple syrup, oil and vanilla. Pour onto dry mixture and fold together very well. Dole out 10 cookies evenly spaced on prepared pan. They will not spread much at all. Press each one down using your palm so that the cookies are about 1/2-inch (12 mm) thick. This step is very important for even baking.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until dry on the bottom (you should be able to lift a cookie) and just beginning to take on some color. Cool pan completely on rack. Low FODMAP breakfast cookies are ready to eat or may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
