AIP Gingerbread Cookies (AIP and Paleo)

One of the biggest things that people say to me when discussing an elimination diet is "Well, what can I eat?"  It can be very challenging and a little overwhelming at times starting a diet that is so different from the traditional way we eat.  But honestly, clean, healthy food tastes so amazing! There is so much flavor in real food. Here is one of my go-to recipes to get me through a sugar craving or when I just need a little treat.  It uses a gelatin egg, which makes it super soft. These healthy gingerbread cookies may become a holiday favorite.  


AIP Gingerbread Cookies

1/4 C plus 1 TBSP Coconut flour

1/2 C Arrowroot starch

3/4 C Tiger nut flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt 

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 C palm shortening

1/2 C maple syrup

2 TBSP molasses

1 TBSP gelatin

1/4 C water for the gelatin egg

To start preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Add the water to a small pot and sprinkle the gelatin over it, allowing it to "bloom." 

Next, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot starch, tiger nut flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger in a bowl.

In a separate microwave safe bowl, melt the palm shortening. Then, add the molasses and maple syrup to the melted shortening. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, but do not stir yet

Place the pot with the gelatin on your stove top and melt the gelatin into the water. This should take 2-5 minutes. Once the gelatin is melted, pour it into the wet/dry mixture. Now you can mix everything together.

Place tablespoon size dollops on a cookie sheet to bake.  Bake for 12 min.
