aip sweet potato bread

Ok, I don’t know how exactly to explain the texture of this aip bread.   It kinda reminds me of an elephant ear marries a roll and then they had this as a baby.

I know.

It makes no sense but I seriously found it hard to stop eating.

It was like, hrmm. .. I think I need to eat all of them to make sure the recipe came out ok.

Ugg, it’s tough doing what I do when you have very little self control.

Anyhow, this bread is vegan and safe for the Paleo Autoimmune diet.  I really like the addition of sweet potato because it gives the recipe another dimension. It also is a dream aip breakfast recipe.

Here’s some  testimonials on HOW FANTASTIC this AIP Bread recipe is:

“I just made this and wow! I love this recipe. I sweetened it up with a pinch of xylitol and when they were still hot I sprinkled more xylitol and put a drizzle of ghee on top. I’m in trouble. The chewy texture was perfect.” Karyn

“I have been dreaming about bread and thought, ok, it’s only $1 for the recipe so if it sucks, I’m only out $1. After my first bite, I thought I would pay $20 for this recipe. It’s THAT GOOD. Thank you!!” Annie

Would love to try these! Do you think I could sub coconut milk ( or water or extra sweet potato) for 1/2 the oil? TIA!

You can try but I'm not exactly sure how it will turn out.

Hi Kelly, I just tried your AIP Bread recipe for the first time yesterday and the results weren’t great. I used coconut oil over shortening because that’s what I had on hand. I had to add extra water to get the dough to come together. I baked them for 65 minutes and the centers were gluey. This continues to be my struggle baking with cassava flour. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?

I've found that cassava flour varieties really matter when baking. Please make sure you are using Otto's because that is what I created the recipe with.

Hi I want to try this recipe however with multiple allergies and sensitivities, I would like to ensure that I can have all of the ingredients. Can you tell me just what the ingredients are before I purchase the full recipe? Thank you

Any chance this also doesn't have coconut? Always looking for alternatives for my egg, nut, coconut, and seed allergic DH! Looks fabulous though! :)

There are 2 tablespoons of coconut flour but you could easily just skip and add more tapioca flour.

Hi Kelly - thanks for all your great recipes (LOVE the garlic rolls!). I want to try the AIP bread, but since I sometimes don't feel well after consuming palm shortening, I would like to try it with coconut oil. I noticed that the amount of coconut oil is the sme no matter how many rolls you make. I just wanted to verify that the amount shown is the correct amount for making 6 rolls. Thanks, Patti
