TigerNut Flour Cookies
These puffy, slightly sweet chocolate chip cookies are made with one of the most unique flours we've ever tried: TigerNut flour. What's tigernut flour made of? It's made from ground tiger nuts, which are actually a root/tuber, like a potato, but they're small, dried, and reminiscent of a nut. These TigerNut products are great for folks with nut and seed allergies.
TigerNuts are the #1 whole food source of a particular type of fiber called Resistant Starch, which is the preferred food of our gut microflora. By nourishing these friendly tummy bugs, we are ensuring a strong immune system, which is key to eliminating various causes of fatigue, regulating body temperature, and helping to prevent the onset of most modern diseases! All that, plus they're pretty delicious. Nutty, and slightly sweet, naturally.
Here's how to make them:
1/2 Cup plus 2 Tbsp TigerNut flour
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
a dash of salt
6 squares of chocolate, crushed into small pieces (or small handful of chocolate chips)
1. In a medium sized bowl combine all ingredients and scoop with a tablespoon onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
2. Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 before removing. Let cool, then serve.
