Here’s a recipe for AIP ‘Chocolate’ Chip Cookies that are so good that your non-paleo friends and family will still enjoy. They’re so good it’s hard to believe that they are gluten, grain, dairy, soy, egg and nut (excluding coconut) free! This is a guest post by Beth Chen of Bon AIPPetit!

  • Combine the flour blend, vanilla powder (if using), coconut sugar, salt, and gelatin in a large mixing bowl. Next add the vanilla extract (if using), coconut milk and palm shortening then continue stirring until combined.

  • Fold in the carob chips or chocolate chips (or chopped dried fruit, if using that instead). And then add 1 tablespoon of dough to the baking sheet per cookie. Leave about 2-3 inches between cookies.

  • Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned on top, then remove from the oven. Let cool completely before touching.


If you try to touch the cookies before they cool, they may lose their shape.
You can use vanilla extract or vanilla powder; both are allowed during the elimination stage of the autoimmune protocol.
Please note that chocolate is a reintroduction, however you can use AIP-friendly carob chips (like this recipe) or dried and chopped fruit as a substitution to keep it AIP elimination stage friendly. Note that most store-bought carob chips contain soy or wheat so be very careful if buying carob chips!
