AIP Carrot Fries Recipe with Coconut and Cinnamon [Paleo, Nut-Free]
When you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), you can’t have nightshades like potatoes.
But fries don’t have to be off the table…
7 Types of AIP Fries
It’s actually pretty easy to make AIP fries. You can use a variety of vegetables like the following:
- Sweet Potato or Yam
- Celery Root
Just cut into “fries” and then toss with salt and some form of AIP-friendly cooking oil (like olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, lard, tallow). Then bake on high heat until crispy to your liking.
AIP Coconut Cinnamon Carrot Fries Recipe
You can use baby carrots for a super easy dish or buy whole carrots and cut them into thin fries.
Mix the carrot fries together with the coconut oil and cinnamon powder. If your carrots are cold, then the coconut oil will solidify, so you can just roughly mix them – you can mix them better after they’ve been in the oven for a bit.
Bake in oven until crispy to your liking. Add extra cinnamon and a dash of salt to taste.
What To Eat With Carrot Fries?
You can enjoy these delicious carrot fries as a snack or as an easy side dish. If you’re staying AIP, then try these with some salmon stew or with one of these AIP chicken recipes.
