Think pizza is impossible on the #aip? It's not!! Check out this recipe for a BBQ chicken flatbread pizza on what I think is an AWESOME crust that anybody who is #grainfree  will enjoy :-)
One night, while eating BBQ chicken thighs and AIP flatbread, it struck me that I should combine the two and make an AIP version of BBQ chicken pizza on a flatbread crust. I owe many thanks to Russ at The Domestic Man for the inspiration; I started with his flatbread recipe and modified it to end up with what is a fantastic pizza crust for both the AIP diner or anyone else who is simply following a grain-free diet. Since I have this obs...

I finally gave up on trying to make biscuits, and have accepted that baked goods made with gelatin just don't rise. These "savory breakfast cookies" are really tasty and make a great biscuit-like bread :-)

These babies are egg-free, nut-free, seed-free, grain-free, and dairy-free, making them autoimmune paleo!

Sometimes kitchen failures turn into great recipes. I've tried and tried to come up with an egg-free, autoimmune paleo biscuit, but, no matter what I do, they don't rise. They've all come out flat as pancakes! Thus, Savory Breakfast Cookies were born. Even though they don't look like a biscuit, they taste like one, and they make the perfect AIP savory breakfast bread!

They did spread a bit, but I didn't mind.  My little guy woke up right when they finished, so I turned off the oven and left them in there while I went to get him.  They ended up being pretty crispy, but I liked them that way (and they're good cold, too).

Love Dr. Spinosa and her technician Heidi at Newberry Holistic! Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have helped all 3 of my cats and my chihuahua improve their health and behavior! I'm so grateful to have such a competent veterinary acupuncturist in town to take care of my furry family members. Dr. Spinosa offers a great balance between conventional Western veterinary medicine and Chinese Medicine, and I really trust her advice because she always look for a natural treatment option first before recommending conventional treatments. Very impressed with her knowledge and skill and I highly recommend her if you are looking for a truly holistic vet!
