AIP Dessert Recipes #aip https://healingautoimmune.com/autoimmune-protocol-aip-dessert-recipes

I know how tough being on the autoimmune protocol (AIP) can be, so hopefully this giant list of AIP Dessert Recipes will make life a bit easier for you!

I know some of you also have coconut allergies or you’re just tired of eating too many coconut products to replace everything else, so there’s a dedicated list of coconut-free AIP dessert recipes as well below.

I’ve worked really hard to ensure everything is 100% AIP-compliant, but my eyes were going dizzy trying to check through so many ingredient lists, so if there are any errors then please send us an email at [email protected] to let us know.
Thanks!

Want to know more about the AIP diet?

The AIP (autoimmune paleo protocol) diet is a stricter version of Paleo that’s designed to help many people with autoimmune conditions. Certain foods like nuts, seeds, nightshades, and eggs are removed for several months and then gradually introduced over time to determine remaining sensitivity. For more information about the AIP diet, check out this comprehensive article.

Why do these AIP dessert recipes not have vanilla extract?

There are several versions of the AIP diet, and we’ve tried to ensure these AIP dessert recipes complies with them all. In particular, the version that Sarah Ballantyne recommends in The Paleo Approach is very strict – it recommends avoiding vanilla (including vanilla extract) initially as well as chocolate, nutmeg, and various other spices and sugars.

So most recipes in this list comply with Sarah Ballantyne’s version but there are 2 additional lists at the bottom that contain AIP dessert recipes that comply with Sarah Ballantyne’s version except that the recipe includes vanilla extract or coconut sugar.

An option for those AIP dessert recipes is to omit the vanilla or to use a different sugar.

Here are just a few of the AIP Dessert Recipes we’ve included:

Apple pie is one of those desserts that always goes down well, whether you’re enjoying as part of your regular weekly meals, or serving it up for family and friends at a dinner party.

To continue with a blueberry theme, this kuchen recipe is another fruity delight. Using sweet potato flour in the base adds an element of sweetness that can sometimes be lost with other flour types.
