5 Minute Triple Chocolate Brownie (Low FODMAP & Gluten Free)

Benny Joy SmithComment

There are likely 3 reasons why you're reading this:

  1. You saw the words 'triple chocolate' and proceeded to freak out in excitement.
  2. You saw the word 'brownie' and continued to freak out.
  3. You saw the words '5 minute' and, you guessed it, you freaked out some more.

Well prepare yourself my friends for a quick, easy and hella delicious treat that cooks up in only 5 minutes (and no, that is not a typo). In less than ten minutes, you can satisfy that craving you've been battling all day for gooey, rich, chocolatey brownie and, added bonus, there are barely any dishes to do afterwards.

Basically, it should the lazy person's go-to treat. 

Plus, did I mention it's low FODMAP and gluten free? This alone makes me a happy chappy, but when you add in three times the chocolate, minus three quarters the cooking time and a tenth of the amount of dishes of other brownie recipes, you'll find me absolutely ecstatic! It is likely I'd eat the whole lot if no one stopped me. And if you know what's good for you, you won't stop me. It won't work out well for you.
