The Ultimate 100+ AIP Breakfast Recipe Round-Up

aip breakfasts

 

Out of all three meals we eat, breakfast while following the autoimmune protocol seems to stump many! I rarely make something special for breakfast unless my husband requests waffles or pancakes, but I’ve been doing this Paleo thing for almost 4 years now.

 

Dinner leftovers are frequently breakfast or a big smoothie full of veggies, fruits, fats, and my favorite breakfast companion Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. I add 1 to 2 scoops to any smoothie recipe or even in bowls of broth-based soup for extra nutrients on mornings I don’t have time to do anything but a simple soup puree. In this round-up, I’ve included 30 of the most delicious AIP-compliant smoothie recipes so you don’t reach smoothie boredom. Adding “supplements” like collagen, turmeric, coconut oil/MCT oil, or matcha powder turn your smoothie into a beautifying morning treatment.

 

Now if you’re the type that likes to make one big skillet each week so you can grab and reheat a small portion every morning, you will love the hash & skillet section! My new Five Spice Beef Skillet is included below and has some really flavorful and lovely North African flavors. And my Crispy Salmon Hash from The Healing Kitchen is one of the tastiest, nutritious, omega-3 packed breakfasts you can have on the AIP!

 

We all have those special Sunday mornings that call for a traditional breakfast/brunch treat – especially if we’re feeding our family AIP foods as well! That’s why I’ve included a lengthy section of waffles, pancakes, and baked goods from the greater AIP blogger community (which is where most of these recipes will direct you to!) My Flourless Waffles are pretty magical and I’ve been told they make great pancakes too!I don’t often share my breakfasts on social media because they’re usually a mish-mash of leftover soup and salad from the day before. I love starting my day with a broth and veggie-heavy soup because it sets a perfect foundation for a day of nutritionally-minded food choices. The breakfast soup collection below contains easy to digest soups, mostly purees, that you can make Sunday night to feed you every morning before work.

85 Amazing AIP Breakfasts! + Sneak Preview Recipe!

The community of AIP bloggers has been sneaking around the past few months using their magical powers to create our new e-book 85 Amazing AIP Breakfasts! Eileen from Phoenix Helix contacted us about the project, and we all jumped on board immediately because HELLO, breakfast is EVERYONE’S favorite meal of the day. And we greedily wanted new ideas for ourselves too! What did you grow up eating? Breakfast was the only meal where I’m embarrassed to say my mother failed us. Sorry, mum, I know you were busy worrying about lunch, snacks, dinner, soccer practices, and your own career! I don’t blame you for sending us off to school with a bowl of cereal, Pop Tarts, or my personal favorite creation: Sugar Toast. Yes, at age 6 years old, I would make my own breakfast and it looked like this: two pieces of fresh-baked white bread toasted and topped with butter and a sprinkle of white sugar AND brown sugar. Too funny. You see where my sweet tooth comes in right?


As an adult, breakfast means nutrition, energy, and mood control. It is still my favorite meal of the day, but now it’s almost always meat and veggies. But sometimes I still get that hankering from something sweet, carb-y, and bread-y in the morning! And on AIP – what do you do? You thank your lucky stars that the AIP community has done all the leg work. With this e-book, which you can get for only $12.95, you’re going to find 85 recipes divided into the 6 categories below. I also included some of my favorite recipes from the book below!

 

  • Beverages: Herbal Coffee, Vanilla, Cappuccino, Spiced Banana Collagen Shake, and more!
  • Bowls: 6 flavors of porridge including Apple, Pumpkin, and more! Biscuits & Gravy and even Sweet Potato Muffins in Bacon Bowls!
  • Skillets: Cinnamon Pork & Apple Skillet, Bison Bacon Pomegranate Skillet, and Sweet Potato Apple and Pancetta Hash, and more!
  • Soups: Greek Gyro Soup, Slow Cooker Breakfast Stew, Nourishing Whole Chicken Soup, and more!
  • Patties: Apple Pie Pork Patties, Turkey Breakfast Stack, Spicy Sausage Patties, and more!
  • Pancakes & more: Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, Silver Dollar Carob Pancakes, Cinnamon Crumb Cakes, Cinnamon Raisin Rolls, Fig & Citrus Hand Pies, and more!

To whet your whistle (although the above recipes already did I’m sure), I also wanted to share with you a recipe from the book for the Breakfast Stack by Jo from Comfort Bites.

AIP Breakfast Stack

4 servings

Ingredients

4 slices AIP-friendly bacon

1 pound ground turkey

1 medium zucchini, grated coarsely

1/4 teaspoon dried sage

couple of pinches of salt

coconut oil (if needed)

4 large flat mushrooms, stalks removed

2 medium avocados, stone and skin removed

juice of one small lemon

rocket or watercress leaves

Directions

1. Fry bacon in a large, dry skillet over medium heat until crispy. Set bacon aside. Leave fat in pan.

2. In a bowl, blend the turkey, zucchini, sage and a pinch of salt. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate 2 for a snack later; cook 4 now.

3. If there’s not enough bacon fat in the skillet, add a little coconut oil. Cook patties 5-6 minutes per side. Check they are fully cooked throughout and then remove from pan and set aside.

4. Add mushrooms to skillet along with a splash of water. Cook a few minutes each side, until they turn golden. Turn off the heat.

5. Quickly mash the avocado flesh together with a pinch of salt and the lemon juice.

6. To assemble: place the upturned mushroom on a plate and arrange a small tangle of the watercress or rocket leaves on top. Place the turkey and zucchini patty on top of that and finish with a spoonful of guacamole and a slice of bacon. Eat while hot.
