58 AIP Breakfast Recipes To Get Your Morning Off To A Great Start

Louise Hendon | January 27

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!

AIP Trail Mix Recipe – Tropical Flavor [Nut-Free, Paleo, Allergy-Free]

Louise Hendon | November 7

Most trail mixes use nuts and seeds as the ingredients, so it’s tough to find ready-made AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) trail mix. But luckily, you can easily create your own AIP trail mix recipe with all your favorite ingredients.

I went for a tropical flavor with this AIP trail mix recipe – mango slices and coconut flakes and freeze-dried berries give a slight crunch, sweetness, and slight chewy texture to this trail mix.

Feel free to experiment with your own flavors if you have trouble getting these specific ingredients.

36 AIP Gelatin Recipes [Paleo, Autoimmune-Friendly, Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | November 5

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.

AIP Bread Rolls Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Egg-Free, Nut-Free]

Louise Hendon | October 5

If you’re on an AIP diet or a ketogenic diet, then having good bread is tough! So if you’re looking for a low carbohydrate egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free bread recipe that’s AIP and Ketogenic, then this AIP bread rolls recipe is what you’re looking for!

Because this recipe uses a gelatin egg instead of a regular egg to hold the coconut flour together, you will find that it has a different texture to regular bread. The coconut flour also makes the bread a bit denser and drier, so enjoy it with some extra coconut oil or with some ghee (if you’re ok with ghee in your diet).

40 AIP Crockpot Recipes [Autoimmune-Friendly, Nut-Free, Nightshade-Free, Egg-Free, Paleo]

Louise Hendon | August 19

When you’re sticking to an AIP diet (Paleo autoimmune protocol), you want to spend your time and energy healing your body rather than cooking all day long. That’s why the crockpot (slow cooker) is an essential device! In fact, if you’re cooking for the entire family, then we suggest you get two slow cookers so you cook multiple dishes at the same time!

If you already have a crockpot, then these AIP crockpot recipes will help you save time in the kitchen. Many of the recipes are just throw into the pot and leave until dinner time recipes, but we’ve also got AIP crockpot desserts and veggie side dishes too. So check out the table of contents below and jump straight to whatever dish you want to get started with today.

59 Healing AIP Smoothie Recipes [Autoimmune-Friendly, Paleo]

Louise Hendon | August 1

Breakfast is one of the toughest meals on any diet because you want something quick and easy but also delicious and filling to start your day. Luckily smoothies fit that bill perfectly. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 65 AIP smoothie recipes to help you heal your body but also enjoy your food.

If you’re not familiar with the AIP diet, then AIP stands for Paleo Autoimmune Protocol and you can read more about that diet here. So, there are no dairy ingredients, eggs, nuts or seeds, or any nightshades in these recipes.

Quick Note about Vanilla on AIP

One of the gray area ingredients for the AIP diet is vanilla. While vanilla beans are ok for most people, store-bought vanilla extract typically contains alcohol as well as other ingredients. The general advice is that if you’re cooking (i.e. heating) the vanilla extract, then you’ll be burning off most of the alcohol so it shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you’re using vanilla extract in a recipe that isn’t heated, then you should use alcohol-free vanilla extract instead. Since that’s hard to find, we suggest either omitting the vanilla, using a tiny bit of the seeds scrapped from the inside of a vanilla pod or else try this pure vanilla powder.

If you’re concerned about reacting to vanilla in any way, then for these AIP smoothie recipes, you can omit vanilla when it’s called for in the recipe. It will change the flavor though.

Quick Note about Fruits on AIP

While fruits are allowed on the AIP diet, it’s best not to overeat them. Smoothies can be easy to gorge yourself on as they have lots of natural sweetness and honey or maple syrup is often added to them as well. Just be aware of how much fruit you’re consuming each day, and try to limit it.
