These low FODMAP blueberry and peanut butter overnight oats make for the perfect healthy, easy and delicious breakfast. We’ve even added chia seeds to the mixture to give you an extra boost. So say bye-bye to complicated breakfasts and hello to these creamy, dreamy overnight oats.
In this recipe, you can use rolled oats (the best fibre source) or if you need to be strictly gluten free, use rice flakes. If you use rice flakes, the texture will be softer, and we’d recommend making the recipe the night before and eating it the following day for best results.
Prep time note: This recipe requires 5 minutes to make and 8 hours to chill in the fridge before eating.
Make sure you use pure maple syrup (low FODMAP) not maple flavoured syrup (potentially high FODMAP).
Low FODMAP milk options include lactose free milk, almond milk, hemp milk, macadamia milk, quinoa milk, rice milk (3/4 cup or less per serve), soy milk made from soy protein (not whole or hulled soybeans), UHT coconut milk (1/2 cup or less per serve).
Make sure your low FODMAP milk does not include high FODMAP ingredients like inulin (chicory root), agave syrup, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, or honey.
If using a dairy free alternative choose one that contains 120mg of calcium per 100ml serve, and 3g of protein per 100ml serve (this info is in the nutrition label).
Check the peanut butter does not contain high FODMAP ingredients like honey, high fructose corn syrup, inulin (chicory root), or agave syrup.
If you have coeliac disease choose rice flakes instead of rolled oats, unless you have talked to your doctor about the risks of eating uncontaminated rolled oats. Oats contain proteins called avenin which is part of the gluten family. Research suggests up to 1 in 5 coeliacs react to pure uncontaminated oats so talk to your doctor before using.
Check the peanut butter is gluten free.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices 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.
