Need a savoury snack idea? Whether you're looking for a fun appetizer or munchies for game day, this easy low FODMAP snack mix has you covered!
Growing up, I was obsessed with snack mix! I loved how it took simple everyday foods like Cheerios and shredded wheat and turned them into something that felt special.
While some pieces got the axe (I still love you tiny breadsticks), this low FODMAP snack mix is packed with flavour and nostalgia! So grab the gang and settle in for a night of serious snacking!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
With a few FODMAP-friendly twists, this party classic is back on the menu! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, Cheerios. Plain Cheerios are made out of oats, which are low FODMAP in servings of 1/2 a cup (52 g) per sitting. Servings of 3/4 cups or more are high in the FODMAPs fructan and GOS.
One cup of Cheerios has roughly 5.5 grams of oats per cup. This works out to 1.1 g per serving, which is well within the recommended range.
Next up, Chex mix. I used General Mills gluten-free rice Chex for this recipe. According to Monash University, rice is low FODMAP in large servings. So we'll fall well below the recommended range with this recipe.
We'll also be using pretzels. If you're in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet, you'll need to use gluten-free pretzels. Don't worry, unlike bread, they taste exactly the same!
While most snack mixes come with a mix of nuts, we'll be sticking to peanuts. According to the Monash app, peanuts are low FODMAP in servings of 32 nuts (28 g) per sitting. Though Monash doesn't list a maximum serving size.
We'll be using 2 cups of peanuts total, which works out to 14 g per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
Next up, Worchestershire sauce. Monash has determined that Worcestershire sauce is low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp per sitting. Servings of 5 tbsp or more are high in the FODMAPs GOS and mannitol.
Our recipe calls for 3 tbsp total, which works out to 4.5 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Last but not least, corn chips. According to Monash, corn chips are low FODMAP in servings of about 1/2 a cup (28 g). Servings of 8.9 cups or more are high in the FODMAPs fructan and GOS.
We'll be using 3 cups of corn chips total, which works out to 10 g of corn chips per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
