Ever since becoming a coeliac I have missed granola for breakfast... I'm one of the unfortunate ones who just can't tolerate the avenin protein in oats! So I've been experimenting, and have created a low FODMAP & gluten free dark chocolate granola recipe using quinoa flakes (because really who doesn't love chocolate for breakfast!). Keep in mind if you are just low FODMAP you can try using standard rolled oats in this recipe instead of quinoa flakes - in theory they should taste great as well.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Quinoa puffs are often found in the gluten free section of your local supermarket.
Choose a dark chocolate that doesn't contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup or fructose. Also avoid dark chocolate that contains high FODMAP fruit or nuts.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
