CINNAMON SUGAR AIP COOKIES

CINNAMON SUGAR AIP COOKIES

These AIP cookies are soft and flavorful, perfect when you need a treat. The cinnamon sugar flavor is out of this world!

Just because you are following the AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet doesn’t mean you can’t have the occaisional treat. I love that these cookies are AIP compliant, but still taste soft, chewy, and full of cinnamon sugar flavor. I hope you love them as much as I do!

 

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE AIP COOKIES:

While you may be tempted to make substitutions, AIP baking can be especially finicky. I highly recommend not making any substitutions in this recipe.

  • The tigernut flour I use for this recipe can be found here. I also really like this brand of tapioca flour.
  • You could substitute granulated sugar for coconut sugar if you are not following AIP, and it should turn out just fine!
  • The gelatin is important for keeping this cookie together, so don’t leave it out. 🙂
  • Allow the cookies to sit on the pan for at least 10 minutes after coming out of the oven, otherwise they will completely fall apart. The longer they sit, the better they hold together

HOW TO STORE AIP COOKIES:

Good news: These cookies are even better the second day after you bake them. You can store them in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
