All autoimmune disorders have one thing in common: An overzealous immune system that attacks the body. But how do you get control of your immune health while putting out inflammatory fires?
One way is with diet.
The AIP diet, or paleo autoimmune protocol, is a version of the paleo diet that removes potential trigger foods. And eggs are one of these foods.
For many folks following the AIP diet, this can make breakfast difficult. No cereal, no milk, and no eggs – what’s left?
As it turns out, cassava is sticky and doughy all on its own. No eggs required. Which means that it is perfect AIP pancake material. Since cassava is naturally a bit sweet you can pair these with some fresh fruit and not even miss the syrup.
- 1 1/4 c cassava flour
- 1/4 c arrowroot powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 3 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1/4 c coconut oil, plus more for pan
- 13 1/2 oz coconut milk
- 1 c filtered water
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- Add all of the dry ingredients to a large bowl. Whisk well to combine. In a small bowl, mix together the apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, coconut oil, coconut milk, water and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix really well to combine.
- Heat a large pan with coconut oil.
- Using a 1/4 measuring cup, cook pancakes in small batches. Flip when the batter begins to bubble.
- Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator and reheat in the toaster oven.
