Looking for a healthy snack to curb your sweet tooth? This low FODMAP yogurt bark will hit you right in the sweet spot!
Apparently I'm not sweet enough, because my sweet tooth is an actual monster! But I've learned over time that my brain doesn't care if I treat it to cupcakes or strawberries.
So when those sweet cravings strike, I love having healthy options on hand so I can treat myself and still be in line with what works for my body.
This yogurt bark is a new favourite of mine! Because it's made with Greek yogurt, it's high in protein. Plus the blueberries and vanilla add the perfect pop of sweetness!
I like to add a little granola so there's some fibre along for the ride. While it isn't enough fibre to impact the mechanics of my IBS, adding a little fibre slows down the absorption of the sugar, which helps prevent sudden spikes in blood sugar! The granola is optional, though. So if you don't have any on hand, no worries.
Keep it FODMAP friendly
There are three things you need to think about when making this tasty low FODMAP yogurt bark.
First, if you're in the elimination phase of the program, you need to use lactose-free yogurt. Make sure to check the label for other sneaky FODMAPs like sweeteners and you're good to go!
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.
We'll be using 1 cup of blueberries, total. That works out to 16 g per serving, which is well within Monash's recommended range.
We'll also be using low FODMAP granola. I used my low FODMAP stovetop granola for our FODMAP math. If you use something else, make sure to adjust your FODMAP math.
The only notable FODMAP in my recipe is rolled oats. According to Monash, rolled oats are low FODMAP in servings of 1/2 a cup (52 g) per sitting. Servings of 3/4 of a cup (75 g) or more are high in the FODMAPs Fructan and GOS.
We'll be using 1/4 cup of granola for this recipe, which works out to 2.6 g of rolled oats per serving. That's well within Monash's recommended range.
