Good morning, friends! Today I have a really awesome recipe for you. I have been getting lots of requests lately for more AIP treat recipes, so I created the ULTIMATE AIP cookie recipe!
The texture of these cookies is really, insanely yummy. After they come out of the oven and cool for a few minutes, they become crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside. This is all thanks to the lovely Tigernut Flour, which these cookies are made of. Tigernuts, in fact, are not actually nuts. They are root vegetables which are high in prebiotic fiber. That means that it’s super good for the gut! I first tried Organic Gemini Tigernut Flour at Expo West, and have been in love with it ever since.
For extra gut-healing magic, I filled these cookies with collagen peptides and grass-fed gelatin. I used this collagen because it tastes amazing, but plain collagen will also work. The gelatin in this recipe is used as an egg replacement. On AIP, eggs aren’t allowed, so gelatin mixed with boiling water is a great substitute! Unfortunately I couldn’t make this recipes vegan as well, but I did manage to make it free of dairy, grains, eggs, nuts and seeds. When my brother tasted these cookies, he couldn’t believe how good they tasted! When I told him how healthy they were, he was amazed.
The tigernut flour makes these cookies subtly sweet, and the carob powder adds a nutty chocolate flavor. YUM!!! The coconut butter drizzle on top is totally optional, but it adds a lovely touch.
I hope you love these cookies as much as my family and I did! Have a great day!
