Hi lovelies! If you are looking for the fabulous Fluffy AIP Biscuits recipe originally posted on Living Lovely Autoimmune (my former blog name), you’ve made it to the right place!
I wanted to take a moment to let you all to know how AMAZING you are! I’m so grateful for your support of my blog. I never thought I would be navigating the running of a wellness blog that gets bigger every day. There is SO much choice out there now for us autoimmune and food-sensitive folks! The AIP community has grown so much, and is truly an astounding resource of healing, creativity and wonderfulness. I am thrilled to be a small part of that. Thank you!
What I really never thought would happen is that one of my recipes would become one of the top AIP bread recipes on the internet! Say WHAT?! I can’t believe it, but I am so thrilled that you guys love it! THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for making these Fluffy AIP Biscuits famous!
Tea biscuits were a pretty regular event in my house. They went with everything: soup, stew, meat, veg dishes, and the dough also made a pretty awesome pizza crust. They were always soft on the inside and crusty on the outside – the perfect soup biscuit. On an AIP or grain-free protocol, bread becomes a much lesser commodity, but nostalgia still sometimes pulls us to wanting some warm, comforting bread, right out of the oven.
Made with easily accessed ingredients and kept super simple, you can whip up a batch of these Fluffy AIP Biscuits to treat your non-AIP guests as well!
I use Bob’s Red Mill coconut flour as it has the best consistency for this recipe, but I have used Nutiva too with success.
Aroy-D coconut milk has always been my milk of choice, but it now (unfortunately) contains polysorbate-60. This emulsifying agent is not advised while in the elimination-phase of the AIP, or if you have a particular sensitivity to thickening agents in general. Any other coconut milk will work – if it is particularly thick, I suggest using 3/4 cups coconut milk + 3/4 cups water instead.
Great Lakes gelatin is my favourite as it is derived from pastured animals.

Also makes a lovely baguette loaf or pizza crust!
1 1/2 cup coconut flour
2 cups tapioca starch
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 tsp gelatin powder
1/2 cup olive or avocado oil, plus 1 Tbsp if needed
1 cup canned coconut milk (see note above)
1/2 cup water, plus 1 Tbsp if needed
- In a large bowl, mix the flour, starch, soda, salt and gelatin powder (no need to bloom the gelatin in water first!).
- Add the coconut milk, water and oil to the dry ingredients and mix into a soft dough.
- Pat into balls (6 large or 12 small), flattening slightly, and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 15-25 minutes, or until golden on bottom and cracked on surface.
- If making a baguette, make cuts across the top before baking.
- If making a pizza crust, pat out on a baking sheet and top with your favourite AIP toppings before baking.
