6 Favorite AIP Dessert Recipes (Paleo, Egg-free, Nut-free)

Baking on the AIP diet can be a stretch sometimes, am I right? Without eggs, nut flours, and even baking powder, it can really present a challenge. But where there’s a will (or a craving), there’s definitely a way. I’m sharing 6 of my favorite AIP Paleo desserts and snacks that are all super delicious! And when in doubt, seasonal fruit with a little coconut cream and cinnamon never fails.

What’s the AIP Diet?

The Autoimmune Protocol can be a greatly beneficial healing diet for those with Autoimmune Disease or even severe digestive problems. I myself was on AIP for a few months and found great success with it in helping my Hashimoto’s symptoms. My antibodies reduced greatly, my energy returned, and much of my inflammation was reduced. It’s imperative that you do re-introduce foods slowly but surely and there are some studies suggesting this should be done sooner rather than later, as you don’t want to reduce your gut microbiota diversity by relying on too many of the same foods over and over again (more on that in the article below). Some can find that they’ll get sensitive to what they lean on too much.

The premise: Paleo diet with further restrictions. There is a removal and re-introduction period of at least 30-days of common allergens: eggs, nightshades, nuts, seeds, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, legumes, certain spices.

Are sweeteners compliant on the AIP Diet?

In moderation, natural sweeteners are allowed on AIP. As always, you should listen to your body and see how you feel! I myself tend to bake with fruit (like banana which is so sweet on its own), maple syrup, raw honey, dates, and coconut sugar the most. Below is a list you can pick from.

  • Dates, date sugar
  • Coconut sugar
  • Honey
  • Maple Syrup
  • Blackstrap Molasses
  • Monkfruit
  • Stevia

AIP Paleo Coffee Cake

This delicious coffee cake really hits the spot for a moist and crumbly coffee cake that is a perfect mix of spicy and sweet! It stores well in a sealed container for days (if it even lasts that long in your house) and is a great dessert to serve guests after a meal or for brunch. Serve with your favorite hot drink.

AIP Paleo Fruit Crisp Template

This is a classic spin on a fruit crisp made with coconut! The fat with the fruit and a little natural sweetener is the perfect and SIMPLE combo for any season – simply switch up the fruit to match the season. Berries, peaches, and plums are lovely in the Summer… strawberries and rhubarb for Spring, pears, and apples all Fall and Winter long… need I say more?

AIP Vanilla Ice Cream on Waffles

Ice cream on Belgium waffles is a total FAVORITE of mine since I was a kid. We used to go to the NJ Shore and get this dessert at night for family vacations, and the combo brings me right back to those fun times. Well, I recreated the magic with two of my recipes below, which are both great on their own too! The waffle recipe is one of my most popular re-makes allover Instagram for sure – everyone just loves them and I know you will too. No ice cream machine? Frozen fruit with a little coconut cream in your food processor will do the trick in a pinch and there are plenty of cheap and mini-waffle makers you can buy for the occasion.

AIP Banana Bread Collagen Balls

These are a favorite quick snack of mine, they will give you a boost of energy and travel pretty well in a sealed container for trips. Not to mention, NO DATES HERE. The sweetness comes from the banana only and you won’t miss anything additional, they’re delicious and remind me of donut holes.
