Low FODMAP Tiger Nut Granola
Yogurt topped with some fruit and granola makes a great healthy breakfast. Unfortunately most store bought versions contain high FODMAP ingredients such as honey, cashews and dried fruits. So we've created our own low FODMAP version!
This recipe is healthy and satiating, easy and cheap. We recommend whipping up a giant batch to consume throughout the week. Enjoy simply with your favourite milk or add some yogurt and fruit (as pictured).
One of the wonderful ingredients we've included is tiger nuts! Not only are they low FODMAP, but they're delicious and incredibly healthy. They have a crunchy and chewy texture, and a subtly sweet, nutty flavour. They’re rich in a variety of nutrients and have been linked to several health benefits, including improved digestion. Fun fact: tiger nuts aren't actually nuts – they're edible tubers!
The recipe is super versatile so feel free to use as a base and experiment with any low FODMAP ingredients :) tag us in your recreations @fodbods on Instagram!
