Since I started my real food journey years ago, macaroons have always been my favorite treat. For a traditional macaroon, you only need honey, eggs whites, and coconut. Pretty simple! They're probably the most fool-proof and easy to prepare treats out there- and not to mention one of the best tasting.

I came up with this recipe because eggs no longer agree with me, and eggs whites are essential for making traditional macaroons. So, I experimented with several ingredients until I found a “glue” to hold the coconut together: plantains.

This recipe is friendly for those who are following the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol, and any other gluten, grain, and sugar free-diet. The combination of cinnamon and plantain in this recipe is slightly reminiscent of peanut butter, making this cookies rich, creamy, and nutty.

Never peeled a plantain before? This video will help!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine peeled plantain, coconut oil, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Puree completely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine puree plantain mixture and shredded coconut. Use a fork to mash the ingredients together.
  4. Once combined, scoop out 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture and form a round macaroon. I used a an ice-cream scoop for this step.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until macaroons begin to brown around edges. Keep an eye on these, as they may brown faster in your oven than in ours!
  6. Enjoy!

Hey AIP Friends! Are You Struggling with Breakfasts?

I can help! I have done the AIP twice, once for 6 months and the next time for about 18 months and now a large number of my readers are also following the autoimmune protocol for their own healing. I have created a number of AIP compliant recipes for this site, and many can easily be modified to fit your AIP lifestyle.

During my time on the AIP I learned a lot, but breakfasts were, by far, the hardest meals for me to plan out. I was an eggs-for-breakfast kind of gal and turns out, I react to eggs so those for sure had to go. What's a gal to do when she's had her favorite go-to breakfast taken away?

Get creative!

Which is what I did, along with the help of 25 other amazing AIP bloggers who all used the AIP to help further along their healing. Together, we created the 85 Amazing AIP Breakfasts eBook (one of the very first digital resources of its kind). The book was coordinated and designed by my friend, Eileen of Phoenix Helix website, and it quickly became a favorite resource in the AIP community!

ONE OF THE FIRST DIGITAL RESOURCES OF ITS KIND, THIS COOKBOOK IS:

  • A paleo autoimmune protocol cookbook that is aligned with The Paleo Approach
  • A resource for reversing autoimmune disease
  • The work of 26 AIP bloggers who have used the AIP to improve their own health.
  • 85 curated breakfast recipes from the best of the AIP blogs, including 33 completely new recipes never published before!
  • Over half of the recipes can easily be modified for low-FODMAP, GAPS/SCD, low-histamine, and coconut-free diets using the handy substitution charts included in the book.

RECIPES INCLUDE:

  • Delicious beverages like Rooibos “Latte”, Vanilla “Cappuccino”, Smoothies, Liver & Kidney Detox drink, and more!
  • Breakfast bowls like Creamy Grain-Free “Porridge”, Roasted Cinnamon Pear “Oatmeal”, Biscuits & Gravy, Cranachan, and more!
  • Breakfast skillets like Sweet Potato Beef Curry, Rabbit Sweet Potato Hash, Bacon & Veggie Fry-Up, Liver & Mushroom Stir-fry, Zucchini Apple Hash, and more!
  • Soups (yes! You can eat soup for breakfast) like Greek Gyro Soup, Carrot Ginger Halibut Soup, Fragrant Herb & Coconut Chicken Soup, Offal (but now awful!) Stew, and more!
  • Patties like Apple Pie Pork Patties, Ginger Green Onion Patties, Perfect Breakfast Sausage, Tuna Cakes with Green Olives, Cranberry Maple Chicken Patties, and more!
  • Pancakes (yum!) like Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes, Spinach Plantain Pancakes, Fig & Citrus Hand Pies, Plantain Waffles, Cinnamon Crumb Cakes, and more!

Regardless of whether you are just starting out on the AIP or you’re already into the program, this cookbook is the perfect addition to your kitchen.
