One of the big misconceptions about low FODMAP life is that grains are completely off limits. Actually, it’s a general SIBO diet paranoia.
While there are some approaches that take most carbs off the table, the majority of people with IBS will be able to improve their symptoms big time with just a few small tweaks. When I was deep in the weeds of my SIBO healing (now two years ago!!) I basically lived on this simple blueberry low FODMAP overnight oats recipe.
It’s a tweaked version of this OG banana-maple low fodmap overnight oatmeal, which also happens to be low FODMAP. But I love adding the extra fruit compote on top. You can use any berries you like. So long as you’re below 30 raspberries in one servings, it’s A-okay on the low FODMAP diet. And for the record, that is a lot of raspberries! More than is in this entire recipe.
Usually the food I make for myself is so simple you don’t even need a recipe. And yet it’s this type of dish from my archives that are always the most popular. So in the spirit of filling in the gaps of my staples, I bring you this delicious mixed berry overnight oats recipe that you can make as part of your batch cooking and leave in the fridge to enjoy all week.
It’s fairly low on sugar compared to a lot of sweet breakfasts, so be mindful of that if you’re used to whatever cinnamon-apple concoction comes out of the pre-made packets.

And if make-ahead overnight oats is not your preferred technique, you can try this quick low FODMAP oatmeal recipe that uses rolled oats and takes only 15 minutes on the stovetop!

Divide between 3-4 small bowls, ramekins or mason jars, leaving at least an inch of room on the top. Top with the berry compote.

A perfect combination of health and taste, oat provides us fiber that aids in the cleansing of our colon. Nice recipe thanks for sharing.

Thank you for this- I’ve made overnight oats before but never thought of simmering the berries first and adding a little maple syrup. It is such a pretty and easy and delicious dish. LOVE IT!
Made for the first time and I love . Thanks so much x
Do you have the nutritional info on this?
Hi looking to try this recipe! Do you know how many calories are in each serving?
Laura Miller says
I’m confused. I thought bananas especially ripe bananas were a high Fodmap food? Also chia seeds only in moderation? I’m trying so hard to only be low fodmap to give my gut a rest. I wish there was a real list that wasn’t so ambiguous.

The Monash FODMAP app is what you should use if you’re every confused about a quantity. All the recipes on this site and my book use the safe servings as dictated by their research. This is 1/3 banana per cup which is a conservative safe serving. Chia seed safe serving is 2 tbsp. This recipe is much lower.
Is there something else that can replace the oats?
