I'd like to introduce you to an oatmeal recipe that I created and ate quite frequently this past winter: Banana Bread Oatmeal. Even though the weather is warmer now, I still like to eat this, especially when I see a banana in the basket on the kitchen counter that's just the right ripeness.
This is a wonderful low-FODMAP breakfast option. There's no extra sugar added, except for the chocolate chips I sometimes like to add to it for a special treat. It's very quick and easy to make and I find that it keeps me full and gives me fuel for several hours.
