Finding delicious AIP breakfast recipes is tough. You can’t have eggs and bacon, regular cereal, or regular pancakes, donuts, and waffles. And even most Paleo breakfast recipes aren’t allowed on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP).

That’s why we’ve put together this GIANT list of 37 AIP breakfast recipes – they’re all dairy-free (no ghee even), grain-free (no oats, no gluten, no rice), egg-free, nut-free, seed-free, soy-free, legume-free, and nightshade-free. They’re even chocolate-free and coffee-free!

Don’t worry though – eating a health AIP diet doesn’t mean bland or boring breakfast foods. From AIP pancakes to porridges and sausages, you can still enjoy many of your old breakfast favorites.

We’ve also found some more unusual AIP breakfast recipes to provide extra variety.

How about soups for breakfast? This is actually very popular in many Asian cultures. It’s also a great way to get more bone broth into your diet.

Or want to try your hand at making a simple AIP coconut yogurt? We’ve got that covered too!
