You’ve probably already heard that gelatin is healthy for you – from healing digestive issues, improving hair and skin, to simply being a great source of protein. (And if you’re looking for a book with more general gelatin recipes and information about the health benefits of gelatin, then check out The Gelatin Secret here.)
However, in addition to all the potential health benefits that gelatin offers, it’s also a fantastic ingredient to have handy when you’re on an egg-free diet like AIP (paleo autoimmune protocol).
Gelatin (when mixed with a bit of warm water) can by used as a substitute for eggs in a variety of baked goods so that you can still enjoy delicious cookies or pancakes even if you can’t eat eggs.
These AIP gelatin recipes are also completely Paleo and gluten-free as well as egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free! So enjoy these delicious recipes guilt-free.
Note – if you’re sticking strictly to AIP, then use alcohol-free vanilla in the recipes. Some of the recipes use carob powder as an AIP alternative to chocolate powder as well. And as always, if you don’t tolerate certain ingredients (even if they’re considered healthy, Paleo, AIP, or otherwise), stop eating it for a while and do some testing to ensure there aren’t any other underlying health problems.
