On March 6, it is known as National Cereal Day. Our family doesn’t do a lot of cold cereals, but we do love our oats. I decided to look up tasty last-minute granola recipes to make in honor of the special breakfast day. I found this one by Tara Rochford Nutrition. I did not change the recipe this time as it was perfect for our dietary needs and tasted like I was eating a cookie for breakfast. Who doesn’t like cookies for breakfast! This has been a tasty treat that we could put on our ice cream, yogurt, or just eat it with almond milk and a spoon. This is a get-in-my-kitchen kind of recipe and I am thrilled to share it with you.

Low Fodmap Nut Granola

This is a great recipe that seriously tastes like you are eating a cookie for breakfast. It is a great pair for on top of ice cream or yogurt. A bowl by itself would be tasty too. I found the recipe from Tara Rochford Nutrition. I used the exact recipe she gave, so there are no variations this time, just some really good food that I had to share with all of you.

  • 3.5 cups rolled oats I used gluten free Trader Joe's brand
  • 3/4 cup walnuts coursely chopped
  • 1/4 cup hemp heart seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Put the oats, walnuts, hemp, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl and mix well.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the oil and almond butter together and remove from heat.
  • Add in the maple syrup and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredient mix and stir until combined.
  • In a single layer, pour uncooked granola onto the pan making sure you spread it out evenly.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, pull granola out, press down with another baking sheet and put back into the oven for another 8 minutes. This helps with making bigger chunks at the end.
  • Allow the granola to cool to allow the large clusters to set. You can also crumble it warm on top of your ice cream for a tasty crunchy topping.
