Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries

After a week of boring breakfasts it is great to spice it up a little when the weekend comes around. So today I made myself a nice baked oatmeal with blueberries. It was so tasty so I’m sharing it with you. Hope you enjoy the recipe and are having a nice weekend 🙂

  1. This looks fab def going to try. I need to be careful with my fructose / sugar levels. R they easily reduced in your recipes. Also can’t have tom or pepper but your lasagne looks lush. Any ideas. I’m an ok cook n baker but never that good with substituting them
    Love your reviews too
    Off to wagamama later should be an easy one

    1. Thank you Michelle 🙂

      Most recipes should turn out well with less sugar of course they will be less sweet though. Shouldn’t be an issue with the baked oats. I think with the baked oats you can mash in a small banana for sweetness. I think other alternative might be using something like stevia which is a natural sweetener. However I think some of the brands do use bulking agents which are high FODMAP so must be careful when reading the labels. Some contain erythritol which from papers I’ve read should be safe even though it is a sugar alcohol however some people still have issues with it. So comes down to trial and error.

      With peppers you can try removing the skins and seeds and cooking them well to reduce the insoluble fibre which can also be a trigger and see if that helps if you haven’t tried it already. When it comes to tomatoes could also try removing skin and seeds. If you can tolerate small amounts you can cook the beef for the lasagna in that small amount so the beef gets some tomato flavour and perhaps adding some homemade beef stock and a splash of red wine if you can tolerate it. Otherwise you could try making the lasagna without tomatoes. perhaps just cooking the beef in a homemade beef stock? Not the same but might still be yummy. I hope this was of help. Sugar and tomatoes are a tough ones substitute.

      I hope you enjoyed dinner at wagamama. How was it? What are the options like for us fodmappers? Last time I’ve been was prediagnosis and I was awfully sick afterwards as I had ordered something with mushrooms; my biggest enemies!
