Homemade Digestive Cookies

Whip up a batch of these paleo digestive biscuits and then pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy.

Not often do I wish to remake a recipe of mine. I always prefer to opt for something new and enjoy the creative process of baking. These AIP Digestive Cookies are a unique exception. I crave them all the time!!!

When I made them for the first time, I was hoping to accomplish an AIP treat that could taste close to the original store bought Digestive. I couldn’t hope my recipe would have come out this well! They are literally addictive!

These AIP Digestive cookies have absolutely no grains, dairy nor eggs and their sweetness comes from the delicious tigernut flour , the spices and the dehydrated pomegranate powder.

And the cool thing is these cookies are actually good for who’s on the AIP diet as they are filled with ingredients that are powerful anti- inflammatories, like ginger and turmeric, or great tummy healers like gelatin.

Not only is gelatin the perfect egg replacer for AIP baking (that does not allow eggs, flax nor chia seeds), it is also one of the main foods recommended to heal leaky gut.

So there you go: you can intake some of the foods that are on the “must eat” list of your AIP guidelines while indulging with some delicious cookies!

And just to be clear, whether you are following the Auto Immune Protocol or not, these cookies are the perfect replacement for the original “not-so-healthy” store bought Digestive cookies and I bet you’ll love them!

 

Paleo & AIP Digestive Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 150 gr Cassava
  • 100 gr Tigernut
  • 40 gr Sweet Potato Starch
  • 12 gr (2 tbs) Gelatin
  • 1 tbs of Pomegranate Powder (optional)
  • ½ tsp Ginger Powder
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground Turmeric
  • 50 gr Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 40 gr Coconut Milk
  • 50 gr Coconut Water
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine flours, gelatin, pomegranate powder and spices in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Add in the wet ingredients and combine with your hands until you get a compact ball of dough.
  4. Roll down the dough with a rolling pin until ¼ inch thick.
  5. Create circles using a round cookie cutter and decorate them with a stencil creating little flowers (if you don’t have it, you can make them by hand using a toothpick or leave them plain).
  6. Bake your AIP digestive for 30 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
 

NOTE: to recreate the grainy texture of the original Digestive, I recommend you use Yoki Cassava Flour , which is coarsely ground and perfect to replicate that consistency.

  1. Hi , I tried this recipe too, but it was a bit of a fail. I was suspicious that the amount of fat and water wasnt enough for 290g total flour. And I was right…I followed the recipe as expected but the dough was *really* dry and crumbly… I tried adding more coconut milk and coconut oil until I got a dough, and baked it but it didnt come out anywhere near expected. Are the instructions wrong? Can you please advise what to do next time?

  2. This recipe did not work for me either. The dough was too crumbly, even after adding more coconut milk/water. I used about half of it as a pie crust: pressed it into a pie plate, baked for about 15 min, and filled with and AIP pudding.
