The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) has been called a strict version of Paleo, which certain foods are eliminated in order to help heal a person’s autoimmune disease.  Since the foods eliminated in AIP are chocolate as well as certain nuts and seeds, finding dessert and treat recipes can be challenging. Thus, I have compiled a list of AIP-friendly desserts and treats to help you on your journey with healing! Not following the AIP lifestyle? These recipes are delicious regardless!

See my AIP-Friendly Main Dish Recipes post for more idea about what to eat when following an AIP lifestyle.

    The fudgiest brownies arent AIP as they call for eggs, cocoa and butter. None of which are AIP.
