Tigernut Flour Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookie

I made these Tigernut flour walnut chocolate chip cookies for our ladies Christmas tea and got the best compliment, “I had no idea they were gluten free until I went back for another one and noticed your sign next to them.”

Have you ever worked with Tigernut flour before? I haven’t, but have been reading about some of the benefits: nut free (great for those with allergies as it’s actually a root vegetable and not a nut at all), high potassium so great for post workout, high in iron, and prebiotic flour among a few.

It’s already a bit on the starchy side with as much sugar as a small sweet potato in ¼ cup of flour. For this reason, I found that I needed MUCH less added sweetness. In fact, it seemed to take the sweetener and the extract and amplify the flavors! So good and such a good consistency. It also rises a bit, unlike coconut, almond flour and other grain-free flours. It’s also quite filling. I could eat 3x as many almond flour cookies as I could these. Very satisfying which makes them a bit safer to keep in the house!  Grab some Tigernut flour and give this recipe a whirl and see what you think!

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups of Tigernut flour
    • 1 egg
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp baking soda
    • ½ tsp almond extract
    • 1/8  cup of Xyla brand Xylitol or Monkfruit
    • T grass-fed butter
    • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (we like Lily’s to keep the sugar down)
    • 1/4 cup walnuts

    Directions

    1

    Mix flour, salt and baking soda.

    2

    Blend butter, egg, extract, and xyilitol or Monkfruit until creamy.

    3

    Add in flour a little at a time. If it gets to a crumbly consistency, keep beating, it will get creamy again but be a bit dense.

    4

    Form into 24 balls and flatten with your palm.

    5

    Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

    Enjoy!
