83 Fantastic AIP Recipes That Are Actually Coconut Free

83 Fantastic AIP Recipes That Are Actually Coconut Free

The AIP diet is pretty restrictive but one thing that is allowed and used very heavily in AIP recipes is coconut. If you have a sensitivity to coconut and you're doing the AIP diet, you've probably noticed it can be tricky to find certain types of recipes in a coconut-free version. 

I've been blogging about AIP and making AIP recipes for a little under a year now and have become more and more aware of how many people have sensitivities to foods that are abundant in AIP recipes. Coconut is a sensitivity/allergy I've been hearing about pretty frequently, so I felt it was only fitting to do a roundup of great coconut-free recipes.

This post is focused mainly on desserts and baked goods because they are typically the hardest to find coconut-free, but I've also included some recipes for drinks, sauces/dips, and savory dishes here too. 

When I was doing my search, I found that it was surprisingly difficult to find AIP coconut-free recipes for certain things. Sometimes, recipes are coconut-free but aren’t necessarily labeled as such so they don’t pop up in a "coconut-free" search OR you search “coconut free” but get a bunch of results for foods with coconut. Very frustrating and time-consuming! Anyhow, I think I found some awesome recipes and I hope you enjoy them!
