A few weeks ago, I shared my recipe for Caramel Stuffed Brownies, in which I experimented with a healthier low FODMAP caramel for the first time. Since then, I have been creating any excuse to make it, use it, eat it or lather myself in it (okay, not that last one). I have also posted my recipe for my favourite low FODMAP granola previously, and one night had the lightbulb moment of combining the two to create these caramel granola bites.
I am one of those people that knows when it’s 3 o’clock by my body telling me it’s time for chocolate, sugar or anything sweet. It’s possibly a self-perpetuated habit, but I won’t dwell on it long enough to examine that hypothesis any further. Nevertheless, I always have to have a sweet treat on hand. These caramel granola bites undeniably satisfy my sweet tooth but have the advantage that I know they are a healthier alternative, and won’t ruin my afternoon with IBS symptoms.

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius and grease a slice tin.
Prepare the low FODMAP granola and press it into the greased tin to the desired thickness. If the mixture will not stay together easily add some more rice malt syrup to thicken it.
Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes or until browned. Watch it closely as it does burn easily.
While the granola is baking, prepare the low FODMAP caramel. When you remove the slice from the oven pour over the caramel and refrigerate until set.
