How To Make a Low FODMAP Breakfast
My latest Low FODMAP snacks roundup has been a great resource for those who are looking for digestion-friendly snack ideas, and those who are looking to improve their digestion or reduce IBS-related symptoms, so today I’m expanding the resource and sharing a great list of Low FODMAP breakfast ideas!
It’s really not hard at all to make a low FODMAP breakfast, you simply need to know which foods to avoid or limit, and which you can enjoy in plenty! This free PDF from Rachel Pauls Food is VERY helpful!
What Does “Low FODMAP” Mean?
To best utilize this list of low FODMAP breakfast ideas, you need to know what FODMAPS are.
FODMAP is actually an acronym for foods that contain specific short-chain carbohydrates that can cause digestive issues like gas and bloating (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols). Invidivuals with IBS typically find it hard to digest foods that contain FODMAPS and following a “low FODMAP” diet can help alleviate IBS-related symptoms.
This Beginners Guide to a Low-FODMAP Diet from Healthline can help explain in greater detail. Ultimately if you struggle with digestive symptoms including bloating, gas, and stomach pain often (and have ruled out more serious conditions like Crohn’s or colitis), eating less high fodmap and more low FODMAP foods might be the solution!
If you are looking for low-FODMAP inspiration, or ways to incorporate these foods into your diet, this list of 17 low-FODMAP approved breakfasts is a great place to start!

Best Ever Dairy Free Frittata from NITK
This delicious frittata is a perfect low-FODMAP friendly way to start the day. The only thing you’ll need to make sure is that you use only the GREEN TOP part of the green onion (onions are high FODMAP, but not the dark green part of green onions), or you can swap for chives.
Almond Flour Banana Muffins from NITK
A single serving of these delicious and healthy almond flour muffins are great addition to a low-FODMAP breakfast. Almond flour is considered low-FODMAP at servings of 1/4 cup, but higher servings of 1/2 cup or more puts them in the high-FODMAP category. Moderation is key!
