Gluten-free chokladbollar on a plate

Gluten-free Swedish chocolate balls (chokladbollar)

A while ago, I was with my boyfriend at Ikea and as always we walked through the food market to buy some goodies. There we saw a product that we had never tried before, called Kafferep. Chocolate balls with shredded coconut. At first, this did not make me very excited, but my boyfriend took them and in the car we tasted one. This variant contained wheat, so I only took a very small bite, but they turned out to be a lot better than I thought. I was immediately sold, that was delicious!

At home I went Googling and it turned out that these were Swedish chokladbollar. A snack made with a base of oatmeal, coffee, cocoa, rolled in shredded coconut. I immediately thought, I have to make this myself. And with these ingredients it is super easy to make a low FODMAP variant. I present: gluten-free Swedish chocolate balls or chokladbollar!

If you ask me, the perfect snack with a cup of coffee or tea on the couch. They are ready in no time and I am sure that they won’t last long. Here, they magically disappeared within two days…

The ingredients of the chokladbollar

The ingredients of these chocolate balls are super simple: oatmeal, sugar, butter, coffee and cocoa. Then you roll the balls into shredded coconut. If you don’t like coconut you can also roll them in icing sugar or chocolate sprinkles.

Shredded coconut is limited low FODMAP to 30 grams per serving (sorbitol). Oatmeal is limited low FODMAP and contains high amounts of fructans and GOS from 100 grams up. Because the amounts of these ingredients per chocolate ball are low, you can safely eat a few without getting complaints. Only at quantities of 5 or more at a time do you go over that limit, but because the balls are quite filling, I don’t expect you to eat that many at once;)

Description

Delicious gluten-free Swedish chocolate balls! These chokladbollar are made with oats, cacao and coffee. Low FODMAP and low lactose.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 300 g (3 cups) quick oats (use certified gluten-free oats if you have to eat strictly gluten-free)*
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) sugar
  • 3 tbsp cacao
  • A pinch of salt
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) butter, at room temperature (use lactose-free margarine if you are very sensitive to lactose)
  • 3 tbsp strong coffee, cooled down

Instructions

  1. Put all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Knead the butter with your hands through the dry ingredients until you get a crumbly mixture.

  4. Roll the dough into 15 balls.
  5. Roll the balls into the shredded coconut or another topping, such as icing sugar or dark chocolate sprinkles.

Notes

Shredded coconut is limited low FODMAP to 30 grams per serving (sorbitol). Oatmeal is limited low FODMAP and contains high amounts of fructans and GOS from 100 grams up.
