Cacoa Nutty Granola

Low Fodmap For Life

I have been kicking my sugar cravings lately with this oh-so-delicious cacoa nutty granola. I found the original recipe in Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar for Life and I have modified it for the low fodmap diet. Keep in mind that for it to be low fodmap you must keep the serves small: 1/4 cup. It is tempting to over-indulge – but don’t – as it might trigger a flare-up (I did and yes, it does).

I serve this with 1/4 cup of low lactose natural yoghurt. I buy mine these days, but if you can’t find it in your local shops you can try making your own using my recipe here.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

2 cups coconut flakes (if you know you are intolerant to coconut, you can reduce this or omit entirely. I am OK with small amounts)

1/2 cup brazil nuts, roughly chopped

1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped

1/2 cup pecans, roughly chopped

1/2 cup macadamias, roughly chopped

1/2 cup pepitas

2 tablespoons of chia seeds

1 teaspoon cinnamon

80g coconut oil

1/2 cup raw cacoa


1. Heat the oven to 120ºC or 250ºF. Line a tray with baking paper/parchment.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined.

3. Spread evenly onto the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.

4. Remove from the oven and cool. Serve 1/4 cup of the granola with 1/4 cup of low lactose or lactose free natural yoghurt.
