Low-FODMAP Pecan Blondies {Also Gluten-Free & Gum-Free}

Low-FODMAP Pecan Blondies {Gluten-Free & Gum-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

My mom is worried that she is allergic to chocolate. I know, I had the same reaction as you: "Nooooooo!" She has been breaking out in hives for months now and is having allergy testing done soon. In the meantime, she suspects chocolate is the culprit and has been avoiding it. Normally when we get together with my parents, I make my delicious brownies. I decided to put together a blondie recipe, something we can all enjoy.

I really enjoy these bars. Although not chocolate, they have a similar texture to brownies and are moist and buttery. I love pecans in sweet recipes, and this one is no exception. Butter, brown sugar and pecans - what a combination! I hope you enjoy these blondies as much as my family (and especially my mom!)

    1. Isn't brown sugar high FODMAP because of the molasses?

      1. Nope! According to the Monash FODMAP App, brown sugar is low-FODMAP in serving sizes of 1/4 cup.
