This post includes my recipe for AIP fruit cobbler. There is also a story to it and I’ll share that too!
I started eating an Autoimmune Paleo diet, also known as AIP, in January 2017. I had to stick with it for a full six months during my treatment with a functional medicine doctor. Since then, I’ve been able to add some things back to my diet, but even then, my diet is extremely restricted by anyone’s standards.
When it comes to desserts, I still need to keep them Autoimmune Paleo compliant. I’ve learned that sugar, grains, eggs, and dairy are the big food groups that create a lot of inflammation in my body. It’s no fun living in a body that is inflamed so I do my best to control the inflammation.
I’m reminded of how sensitive I am to food every time I cheat on my diet. The next day I wake up with painful joints in my fingers, and in worst cases, I feel the pain in my hips and knees. When I eat these foods for a few days in a row, then it leads to more symptoms like brain fog, weight gain, and irritability.
I’ve become really in tune with my body’s health status. The desire for a greater quality of life with my loved ones drives me to do what some people call the impossible with how strict of a diet I have to keep up for the rest of my life.
The Making of AIP Fruit Cobbler
After a few months of eating an AIP diet, I was proud of myself for sticking to such a hard diet. I missed eating dessert so I decided to make an AIP compliant dessert I could make for special occasions. Typically, I’m not one to go to a recipe book or Pinterest to look up a recipe. Instead, I usually get creative in the kitchen and put together ingredients that I think will taste good together. My recipes are usually from trial and error of tasting and improving!
I played around with this fruit cobbler recipe a few times. It’s so good that even the picky eater in my family likes it. It quickly became the only dessert I wanted to make for my AIP diet for its great taste and how easy it is to make. Although, for anyone on an AIP diet, we need to watch our honey and fruit intake so this recipe should be reserved for every now and then as a special treat.AIP compliant fruit cobbler that tastes so good and it's so easy to make!

The Key Ingredients for AIP Fruit Cobbler
Tigernut flour is the secret ingredient to making an AIP compliant fruit cobbler. (It’s available by the pound on Amazon.) Tigernut flour is the perfect alternative to oats because it has a similar flavor.
- 4 cups fruit, frozen (suggestions include peaches, blueberries, marionberries and even a mix)
- ¼ cup Tigernut flour
- ¼ cup arrowroot starch
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup coconut oil, butter flavored, Nutiva brand
- ¼ cup honey
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Add the frozen fruit to a medium size baking dish. (I use a Pampered Chef round covered baker.)
- Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Then, add the honey and coconut oil to the mixing bowl.
- Mix the ingredients together using the back of a fork to combine.
- Pour the mixture over the frozen fruit.
- Place in the oven with the lid on for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, remove the lid and bake for another 15 minutes.
- Tip: For smaller fruit like blueberries, cooking time may be a few minutes less.
