Looking for a filling snack you can grab on the fly? Whether you need something for work or school, these easy low FODMAP blueberry muffins will keep your taste buds and your tummy happy!
I don't know about you, but to me, July always seems like it's stuck in limbo. I feel like the summer has bearly started, but here we are being bombarded with back-to-school propaganda. While I'm a huge fan of back-to-school shopping (some habits never die!), I'm not ready to pack in my summer just yet! So this week, I thought I'd share these easy low FODMAP blueberry muffins.
These muffins are a family favourite at our house. I love making huge batches with fresh Ontario blueberries in the summer and freezing them for later. These muffins thaw very quickly, so they're perfect for a breakfast on-the-go or as a nut-free snack idea for school. Just pop one in your bag on the way out the door, and by the time you reach your destination, it should be ready to eat!
Heads up, if frozen blueberries work better for you, toss them in a few tablespoons of flour before you add them to the mix. This will keep them from turning your batter blue. Unless smurf muffins are your jam, in which case, carry on!

Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Your whole family will love these easy low FODMAP blueberry muffins! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe low FODMAP.
First up, flour. If you're in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP program, you'll need to use gluten-free flour. Make sure you check the ingredients of your flour blend for other high FODMAP ingredients, though. Just because a product is free of one FODMAP, doesn't mean it's free from them all.
Remember, unless you have celiac disease, you're trying to manage the FODMAP fructan in wheat, not the gluten itself!
Next up, blueberries. According to Monash University, blueberries are low FODMAP in servings of 1/4 cup (40 g) per sitting. Servings of 1/3 cup (50 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
Our recipe uses 1/4 cup of blueberries total, which works out to 3.3 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Last but not least, milk. If you're in the elimination phase of the program, you'll need to use lactose-free milk. This won't add anything to your FODMAP load.
You are what you eat! Check out the notes below to find out how many servings of each FODMAP group are in one of these tasty blueberry muffins!
Fructose = 0
Lactose = 0
