There are some mornings when you want to pay homage to your past life and eat a bowl of cereal. Whilst nuts can be problematic for some, for others they can be a good way of increasing good quality fats in your diet. Due to the restrictions of the SIBO protocol, this granola is to be eaten in small portions and in moderation. Divide the mixture up once you have made it so you are not tempted to over eat it.

Cinnamon And Vanilla Granola


  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup pecans
  • ½ cup flaked coconut
  • 4 tbs pepita seeds
  • 4 tbs sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbs honey (use maple syrup if Low FODMAP or vegan)


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  • Line a large deep baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the nuts into a food processor and blend until chopped to a consistency you are happy with.
  • Place the nuts in a large bowl. Stir in the coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and spices.
  • Melt the coconut oil and honey (or maple syrup). Pour over the dry mixture and stir until completely combined.
  • Pour into the baking sheet. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and stir thoroughly. Return to the oven. Repeat this process until the granola is golden. Remove from the oven, and cool then store in an airtight container in the fridge. Serve with almond milk and a sprinkling of berries.


  • Keep an eye on the granola as it can burn very quickly.

      1. Hi Rebecca ! Firts, let me express my deep gratitude for your work. You are help me fighting SIBO.
        All the effort and care you put in sharing all your Knowledge is so much apreciated.
        I have a doubt Rebecca : instead of Stevia or Honey, can i replace with Maple Syrup ?
        Thank you in advance

        1. Hi Catarina
          Yes you can totally replace stevia or honey with maple syrup if that’s what you prefer. Maple syrup is low fodmap and is generally well tolerated by people with SIBO.

  1. I am going onto my 10th week of the SIBO diet and this recipe is easily my favourite one so far! Such a yummy snack, I don’t feel I am missing out like I normally do.

    1. Hooray for that! I really missed cereal when I first started my SIBO diet, which is why I created this. But I love it as a snack as well – it’s so versatile and very yummy.
