This can be a tough time of year for a lot of reasons, never mind having to go through Valentine’s day on a special diet or struggling with sugar addiction. All those sweets and chocolate and decadent date-night desserts… it’s enough to drive you mad. My anniversary also happens to be around this time (this year is number 11!), so there’s a lot of pressure to come up with or go out for extra-special meals. But if you have food allergies or autoimmune disease, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a bust! These AIP Strawberry Brownie Parfaits are simple to make and wonderfully indulgent. Adapted from my popular AIP Chocolate Cake recipe, these brownies involve very little prep, cook fast, and make the perfect crumbled base for a bright, festive, strawberry parfait. Of course, you can use any fruit you like here–raspberries, bananas, and cherries would be particularly good. You can also use the Banana-Avocado Frosting from the original cake recipe instead of the coconut-based whipped cream if you want to.
Looking for more easy AIP recipes?
I know diet change can feel overwhelming. I started the autoimmune protocol at a time when only four other people were writing about it, and over the years, I’ve striven to give you the resources I wish I’d had when I got started. Not just recipes, but ways to implement them. My first ebook 28 Days of AIP is a meal plan that will help you get going (or get back on the wagon) with as little fuss as possible. With a variety of simple, delicious recipes, plenty of leftovers so you don’t spend all your free time in the kitchen, and shopping lists ready to go, all you have to do is follow the plan, then sit down and enjoy your meal!
