I have been following a Gluten Free Vegan diet for quite some time and recently enjoy this AIP apple banana recipe. I do eat meat, but I don’t eat eggs, milk, and now grains, legumes, and nuts.
AIP stands for Autoimmune Protocol. After adjusting my diet to alleviate systemic inflammation, I decided to follow the AIP diet. One of the biggest challenges for me is what to eat for breakfast. I am one of those people that MUST eat breakfast in order to have energy needed to function.
Prior to starting this AIP diet, I have been enjoying morning smoothies with pea protein, coconut milk, fresh ginger, frozen apple bananas, berries, chia seed, and even some spinach. I really enjoyed this morning routine and tasty breakfast.
During this AIP diet for the next few months (16 weeks), I will not be enjoy pea protein. I will replace it with some Vital Proteins Collagen, but in the meantime, I found something else I like very much
This recipe was shared with me but I modified it to fit my likes.
The ORIGINAL recipe that was shared with me:
1/2 mashed banana, 1/4 tsp salt, & add 1/4 cup hot water, put aside (to soften banana)Another bowl mix 1/3 cup cassava, 1/4 cup finely shredded coconutMix dry & wet after 5 min & add 1/2 cup water. You can add coconut sugar but I leave that out. I cook on griddle w/ avocado oilOnce cooked I put coconut oil & fruit on top. No maple syrup for me but can be used in moderation. They don’t taste like the pancakes we are used to but they taste really good!
Here’s what I did:
2 small apple bananas mashed
I did not use 1/4 cup hot water – they were soft enough
I mixed 1/3 cup cassava flour, a little bit of shredded coconut and 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
I did NOT use any extra sugar because apple bananas are pretty sweet. I cooked them in coconut oil. Once cooked, I topped with
Homemade apple sauce (Organic Gala Apples with fresh squeezed lime juice (it’s all I had). I did put a tablespoon of organic maple syrup on 2nd pancake.
Yield was 2 pancakes and they were Yummy
What is AIP (Autoimmune Protocol)
The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is a diet that aims to reduce inflammation, pain, and other symptoms caused by autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), celiac disease, and rheumatoid arthritis (1).
Many people who have followed the AIP diet report improvements in the way they feel, as well as reductions in common symptoms of autoimmune disorders, such as fatigue and gut or joint pain. Yet, while research on this diet is promising, it’s also limited.
This article offers a comprehensive overview of the AIP diet, including the science behind it, as well as what is currently known about its ability to reduce symptoms of autoimmune disorders. Read more here>
No matter what diet you may be following, I hope you enjoy this recipe if you try it. The cassava flour is gluten free/wheat free and the rest of the ingredients are vegan if that is important to you.
