Keep it FODMAP friendly
Curb your hunger with this fantastic low FODMAP maple granola. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, rolled oats. According to Monash University, rolled oats are low FODMAP in servings of 1/2 a cup (52 g) per sitting. Servings of 3/4 cup (78 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
Our recipe uses 3 cups of oats total, which works out to 22 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Next up, coconut. Monash has determined that coconut is low FODMAP in servings of 2/3 cup (64 g) per sitting. Servings of 1 cup (96 g) or more are high in the polyol sorbitol.
We'll be using 1 cup of coconut total. This works out to 7 g of coconut per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
Next up, walnuts. Walnuts are low FODMAP in servings of 10 nut halves (30 g) per sitting. Servings of 35 nut halves (135 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
Side note: Use walnut halves to measure for this recipe and then put them on cutting board and crush them with a rolling pin. If you purchase your walnuts pre-crushed, you'll need to weigh them to make sure you're still within the correct measurements for your FODMAP math (125 g of walnuts total).
We'll also be using pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas). According to the Monash app, pumpkin seeds are low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp (23 g) per sitting. Servings of 8.5 tbsp or more are also high in the FODMAP fructan. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
This recipe calls for 1/2 a cup of pumpkin seeds total, which works out to 6.5 g per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
Next up, maple syrup. Monash has listed pure maple syrup as low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp per sitting though they haven't listed a maximum serving size.
Monash has explained on their blog, that foods with no listed limit can be eaten in larger servings without adding anything significant to your FODMAP load. You can check out the full article here.
Last but not least, cranberries! According to Monash, dried cranberries are low FODMAP in servings of 1 tbsp (15 g) per sitting. Servings of 1.5 tbsp (23 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
We'll be using 1/3 of a cup of dried cranberries, total. This works out to 8 g per serving, which is well within Monash's recommended range.
