Premium Organic Tiger Nuts Flour is milled from fine Raw Premium Organic Tiger Nuts and bakes 1-1 just like ordinary Flour. What’s so great about this flour, is that because it is ground so fine, you can use it as a smoothie mix too. Just put a few spoonfuls with fresh fruit or vegetables, together with some ice and a little water and throwing it all in a blender for terrific smoothies.
So you might be a little confused right now. Tiger Nuts are actually NOT nuts, they are a tuber that grows below the ground’s surface. They have all of the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts and then some, but without the stuff that can adversely affect allergies. hey are packed with fiber, vitamins and nutrients, and deliver a serious dose of energy. And because they have so much fiber, they make you feel full, which of course helps curb your appetite.
I recently experimented with baking with this flour for the first time. I love chocolate chip cookies and this recipe was hit! I served the cookies to our friends who were over during the Patriots game last night and by the end of the night all of the cookies were gone!
