What says, “I love you” better than a little chocolate frosted treat?
A little frosted low FODMAP two-bite brownie, that’s what! 🙂
I created this brownie bite recipe with the FODMAPer in mind for the Valentine’s day holiday…but really these can be enjoyed as a treat on any old day.
The recipe yields 12 bites and like most gluten free baking treats are best enjoyed the day of baking.
If you are looking for other low FODMAP dessert inspo for your Valentine with a sensitive tummy…I also love whipping up dark chocolate dipped fruit. All you need is suitable melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, fruit (I love dipping bananas, clementines, strawberries and pineapple) and sprinkles if need a little extra love. Check out my post on chocolate dipped fruit, here.
- Makes 12; serving size 1-2
- 1/2 cup gluten free flour (I used King Arthur GF all purpose flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips ( used Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk (I used lactose free dairy milk)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line 12 mini muffin cups with paper liners or lightly oil mini muffin tin.
- In medium bowl, add GF flour, baking soda and sugar.
- In microwave safe dish, add butter and chocolate chips; heat for 1 minute, stir. If chocolate not melted, place back in microwave in 15 second increments unit chocolate and butter are completely melted. (Tip: cover microwave safe dish w/ paper towel in case of splattering)
- Add chocolate and butter mixture to flour, stir to blend
- Gradually add in beaten eggs and vanilla, until mixture is creamy.
- Spoon mixture evenly into 12 mini muffin tins.
- Bake for 12 minutes (cake tester should come out clean)
- While baking, add butter and vanilla to medium bowl.
- Beat butter and vanilla with hand mixer until creamy; slowly add in confectioner's sugar and milk until mixture is desired frosting consistency.
- When brownie bites cool to room temperature, frost them and top with suitable sprinkles, as desired.
Valentine’s Day has always been kind of a big deal w/ Russ and I. So…we are off for an escape into the city, dinner out, window shopping at my favorite spots, and just taking in all that the wonderful city of Boston has to offer. I hope you enjoy the love this Valentine’s day too.
