  1. This does not fit recommended SIBO diets as chia seeds are on the “avoid column”. So glad I triple checked before feeding it to my husband.

    1. Hi Amanada
      If you take a look at the top of the recipe, it is listed as a Low FODMAP breakfast dish. At 24g raw, chia seeds are considered Low FODMAP so this recipe is suitable for those people following a Low FODMAP diet. The best way to find a recipe that suits your particular SIBO diet is to use the search function and filter that way. Or you can always look at the top of the recipe and see what it’s suitable for.

    1. This is a low FODMAP recipe. You can check what SIBO diets my recipes are suitable for by looking at the very top of the recipe.
      This would be used after Phase 2 of the Bi Phasic Diet when you’re reintroducing more foods.

  2. I’m accustomed to using plain yogurt added to berries/granola to lesson the sugar content in my breakfast. How sweet is this with the amount of maple syrup called for? How much i can cut back syrup to get same effect?

      Hi Anne
      You are welcome to reduce or completely eliminate the maple syrup from this recipe if you are used to, and prefer, non-sweetened foods. The recipe isn’t overly sweet, but you can always start with none, and then add a small amount of sweetener if you feel it needs it.
      This recipe can safely be tasted as you’re making it, so you can always customise it as you go.
      You could also add some plain yoghurt to the mixture too if you like.
