FODMAP Friendly Healthy Granola
This is one of my go-tos for the week ahead. Easy to whip up, nutritious and lasts for weeks in a sealed container (if you don’t gobble it up!). This granola is full of fibre, flavour, low in sugar and is made with just a few ingredients. If served as under a 40g portion, this is a great FODMAP friendly addition to your breakfast routine.
- 400g of jumbo oats
- 60g of maple syrup/honey
- 100ml melted coconut oil/olive oil
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 4 tbsp shredded coconut
- 4 tbsp slivered almonds
- 4 tbsp of chia seeds
- 5 tbsp pumpkin/sunflower seeds
- Preheat your oven to 160C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- In a bowl, mix the melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and sweetener of choice.
- Add the cinnamon, shredded coconut and jumbo oats in a large bowl. Add in the coconut/syrup blend and mix well.
- Cover your lined baking try with a thin layer of the granola. Press down with the back of a spoon to stick the granola together – this will help you get larger chunks of granola as an end result.
- Pop in the oven for 15 mins, and then take it out and give it a good stir, mindful not to break large chunks. Mix in the nuts and seeds at this point. Put back in the oven for another 10 minutes until browning and dark golden in colour.
- Now turn off your oven and let the granola sit in the oven and cool for 15 minutes. This helps it get crunchy!
- Take out and let the granola cool fully before breaking it up and trying!
