Low-FODMAP Granola/Trail Mix; Gluten free, Dairy free

Although this low-FODMAP granola has not been tested, a single serving should be low FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Prep time: 55 minutes (10 minutes preparation, 45 minutes baking)
Bake: 300 F
Servings: 6 or more

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (can also use butter)
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup or maple syrup (Brown rice syrup makes for a clumpier granola.)
    • You can also use ¼ cup each (I usually do a both maple syrup and brown rice syrup combination)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • About 2 cups of stir-ins (substitute to your preference):
    • ½ to 1 cup (maximum 110 g) unsweetened coconut flakes
    • ½ cup (maximum 72 g) sliced almonds
    • ¼ cup (maximum 140 g) chia or pumpkin seeds
    • ½ cup (maximum 120 g) pecan halves
    • ½ cup (maximum 180 g) walnut halves
    • ½ cup (maximum 90 g) hazelnuts
  • The following stir-ins can be added pre- or post-bake depending on preference; I prefer post-bake:
    • ½ cup (maximum 78 g) raisins
    • ½ cup (maximum 78 g) dried cranberries (no added juices)
    • ½ cup (maximum 180 g) semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  • Combine oats, cinnamon and selected stir-ins to be baked in a large bowl
  • Melt coconut oil in microwave, about 30 seconds
  • Combine coconut oil, brown sugar, vanilla and syrups in a second medium bowl
  • Pour liquid over oats and stir to cover
  • Spread mixture flat on a baking sheet (2 sheets for doubled recipe) and bake for 20 to 25 minutes
  • Stir with spatula and then finish baking to 45 minutes total
  • Let cool, then mix in remaining stir-ins, such as chocolate chips, raisins or dried cranberries, if desired

Try a combination!

  • Store in an airtight container if it lasts longs enough to be stored…
  • So good over low-FODMAP Ice Cream
