I love baking, especially cookies. I simply love the smell of freshly baked treats in the house and these Low Fodmap Cocoa Crinkle Cookies make the whole house smell like chocolate! And who can resist that?
I had never eaten Cocoa Crinkle Cookies before making these and I must say that I was really surprised by their intense chocolate flavour even though there is only cocoa powder and not “real” chocolate in the dough! Yum!
These cookies are very easy to make and don’t require any special equipment. The only thing you need to remember is that the dough needs to be made in advance (better if you make it the day before), as it is quite soft and it needs to harden in the fridge before you can shape it into balls.
Also, if you don’t need to follow the Low Fodmap diet or if you can tolerate gluten, you can simply substitute the low fodmap gluten-free flour with regular flour and still enjoy these amazing cookies. Remember, these are also dairy-free!
