AIP & Paleo Holiday Gingerbread

This recipe is a sneak peek from my AIP & Paleo Holiday Recipes eBook.

My mom made gingerbread cake and cookies from scratch when I was growing up, so I’m excited to share with you this autoimmune-friendly version of my mom’s famous Gingerbread!

I absolutely love the fragrant spices of Gingerbread: cinnamon, cardamom allspice, cloves, and of course–ginger! These flavors always get me feeling nostalgic for my childhood.

Serve this at Thanksgiving or your next holiday gathering. I promise it will be a huge hit!

8 people


  • 1 cup Cassava flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 scoop The Myers Way® Gelatin
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with melted coconut oil.
  2. To make the cake: In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cassava flour, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, gelatin, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, allspice, cloves, cream of tartar, and sea salt. On low speed, mix the dry ingredients together.
