AIP Curry Powder

The autoimmune protocol does away with nightshades, especially in the early elimination no tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, etc., and no seed spices--but there are almost always workarounds and substitutes to satisfy a taste for a bit of heat.

I use this one a lot, and not just for "curries."  It's good!  I can have seed spices with no problem now, so I'll be adding back a bit of cumin, but it really doesn't need it.

*AIP "Curry Powder" Recipe 

1 T. garlic powder
1 T. onion powder
1 T. turmeric
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. powdered ginger (or more for a bit more kick)
½ t. ground clove (again, I added a bit more)
Real Food & Love blog adds powdered lemongrass, but I was fresh out...

Grandma Kelley's Cornbread--AIP style!

Our Christmas dinner at the cabin...sausage with cabbage, apples and onions; cauliflower "potato salad," and Grandma's cornbread, reimagined.

AIP Cornbread (eggs reintroduced)

Wheat-free, corn-free, dairy-free but based on my grandmother Kelley’s version of the old standby...pretty darn good!


Preheat oven to 350̊

2 Eggs (can substitute gelatin eggs, applesauce or your favorite if you're on the elimination phase of the autoimmune protocol)
2/3 C. Coconut flour (for that cornmealy granularity)
2/3 C. Cassava flour
1 C. Coconut milk w/ 1 T lemon juice or ACV for “buttermilky” flavor–add more milk as needed       to make a thick batter
2 T. Palm shortening (or bacon grease, to be more like grandma’s!)
1 T. Olive oil
1 t. Salt
2 t. Baking powder (2 t. cream of tartar, ½ t. baking soda)


bit of turmeric for color
1 T. Nutrutional yeast
garlic powder, optional but YUM!

Coconut flour is very thirsty, soaking up moisture, so you will probably need to add more milk.  Mix well, smooth into a greased 8" x 8" pan, bake for 25 minutes or until firm and brown on top.

Good hot from the oven or cold (I’m going to have to try the “cornbread” and milk I grew up on). We had it split and toasted with breakfast this morning–J. made a cornbread McMuffin with sausage.
