This delicious paleo granola is perfect for a comforting Autumn breakfast but equally delicious as a snack post workout. You can purchase canned pumpkin puree or use some steamed / baked mashed butternut squash, pumpkin or sweet potato.  Top this with a handful of berries and served with almond milk – delicious!  If you want to make this low FODMAP use the maple syrup rather than xylitol. You could also reduce the nut intake and switch the ground almonds to quinoa flakes.  This recipe comes from my new EBOOK Beat the Bloat: Low FODMAP recipes which provides you with over 40 delicious low FODMAP recipes and plenty of advice in following the diet too.
