    Hi Kate,

    This recipe looks yummy…unfortunately, I don’t tolerate corn. I’ve been looking for a breakfast cereal. Can you recommend a FODMAPs friendly cereal for clients who don’t tolerate corn (or oatmeal)?

    Thanks much!

    Hi Kate – that’s been my go-to for about a year and a half now. Sometimes I throw in some rice or corn chex and add some of the Panda Puffs (peanut butter flavored) instead of all Gorilla Mix 🙂

    Thank you for listing the actual “brand” to purchase (in your recipes) that helps so much!! I am also Lactose Intolerant as well as being tested/diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption. What brand of semi sweet chocolate chips to you recommend? I am guessing Enjoy Life Semi Sweet? I think I got sick from those once before, haven’t tried again. Any other recommendations okay for Fruc Mal & Lact Intol ?? Thank you so much for your BLOG, you have no idea!!! I need more packaged snacks to try that are Fodmap friendly and Lactose Intol Friendly!! I have been zero packaged food for almost 2 years, I have only had a few things here and there. But sooooooo afraid.

      Jeani, I typically recommend semi-sweet (not milk) chocolate chips such as Ghirardelli or Hersheys–one with low fiber content. Small amounts..2 tablespoons or 30 grams.
