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.
Cacoa Nutty Granola
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.
