Bom dia Granola; Good morning, Granola!
Hey, been trying to (m)eat you (…) But hey, where have you been?
Granola, glorious granola! The kind that makes you sing and dance to the sound of The Pixies or Otis Redding 🙂
But why all the excitment? You might ask. After all, this is just another low FODMAP granola recipe…
Maybe this is just another low FODMAP granola recipe but for me it is the first one and I am really happy with it 🙂
Actually this breakfast and snack food is very popular in the US but not so much here in Europe. This is why my post starts today with Good Morning, Granola in Portuguese, a kind of wake up call to everybody (me included) to make homemade granola. It is easy, nutricious and delicious! And the house smells so good after baking it!
But for all of you already familiar with Granola, I’ve developed a slightly different recipe: a low FODMAP Granola with citrus refreshing flavors. It has a lot of goodness in it like oats, quinoa, flax seeds, banana chips, pecans, pumpkin seeds,… and a plus – tangerine or orange peals!
My low FODMAP Granola with citrus scents got me chained and bound, like in the Otis Redding song 🙂

- rolled oats - 1,83oz | 52 grams recipe calls for 7 oz |200g. Even if allowed, there is a lot of low fodmapers that find oats hard to digest so I advise you to test a smaller quantity first. And if you want to learn more about oats on the low FODMAP diet, check this post.
