This isn’t much of a recipe but I’m still sharing because it always helps to have a recipe work from when you’re new to a way of eating. It could even give you the inspiration to go on and make other things with the same or similar ingredients.
On the autoimmune protocol (AIP diet) some people remove coconut products from their diet initially as they may be super sensitive to them. Most people tend to find that coconut oil seems to be exempt from this list and well tolerated* even for those with a sensitivity to other coconut products . However if you are cutting out coconut oil and coconut butter then you could try using ghee in place of them – if this is also out for you then you may have to skip this recipe altogether and consider making your treats with gelatine!
*based on what I have read and also suggested in The Paleo Approach by Sarah Ballantyne!
I have used freeze dried strawberries in the recipe because they are quite sweet so you don’t need much. You can use other freeze dried fruits but just check that they are AIP and low FODMAPs compliment; you will also need to check the macros for the amount you use as some dried fruits can be higher in carbs than others.
I also used fresh fruit in these fat bombs just to give them a ‘treat’ kind of feel as well as extra taste and texture. I have tried blueberries, raspberries and strawberries – all work really well and you don’t need much which is great for keeping the carbs down.
The protein in these fat bombs is very minimal but if you wanted to increase it a little you could add in some collagen or protein powder.
These macros are based on using freeze dried strawberries and 36 grams of blueberries. I managed to get two berries in each cup.

If you wanted to use fresh strawberries in place of blueberries then use 45g of strawberry and chop them into small slices or pieces (I used slices).
