Tropical Granola

This tropical granola is a deliciously sweet and crunchy low FODMAP breakfast or snack. Finding a granola without high FODMAP ingredients such as honey or dried fruits can be difficult. I was able to prepare this batch even before the kids went to school! (And that includes burning the first batch).

Prepare a batch of this staple to keep in your cupboard. When placed in an air tight container you are set for a couple weeks!

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 20-25 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

Tropical Granola Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups of rolled oats

  • 3 Tbsp of butter, melted

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 1/8 cup chopped almonds

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

  • 1/8 cup of coconut flakes

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

Cooking Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a large mixing bowl, stir dry ingredients together (oats, ginger, almonds, salt, chia seeds, pecans, and coconut flakes.)

  • In a separate bowl mix together wet ingredients (butter, maple syrup, and vanilla).

  • Then pour wet ingredients into dry mixture. Stir until well mixed.

  • Spread mixture on baking sheet with parchment paper.

Hi Donna! I hope you enjoy it. That’s a great choice to mix with the lactose free yogurt and blueberries.


Thank you Cari! I can't wait to make this! You literally have read my mind, I've been searching for a granola that I can eat, that isn't filled with dried fruits and added sugars (other that maple syrup). I have been craving a different breakfast and this will definitely fill the bill, paired with some lactose free yogurt and blueberries. Thanks for giving us such great options. Have a great week.
