You are about to experience cookie bliss!
These decadent shortbreads are seriously some of the best cookies ever. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free, and full of savage deliciousness!
What's their hidden savage secret...Tiger nuts!
First of all, they’re not tree nuts. Tiger nuts are tubers, like potatoes and sweet potatoes, though much smaller in size. They're named for their stripe-like look on their exterior.
Tiger nuts might be small, but they're mighty!
Tiger nuts are a good source of protein, healthy fats, vitamin E, iron, magnesium, zinc, and antioxidants.
Tiger nuts are also high in resistant starch, a fiber that passes through the GI tract undigested. This type of fiber also helps feed your beneficial gut bacteria, can reduce blood sugar spikes, and helps aid in satiety.
You can eat tiger nuts raw, roasted, or boiled. When they're dried and ground, these nutrient-rich "nuts" become a wonderful grain-free flour.
If you’ve never used tiger
nut flour before, these simple shortbread delights are a great place to start!
*If you can’t find coconut manna or coconut butter, make your own by puréeing unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor or high-speed blender until smooth and pourable.
Unleash your savage cookie beast with tiger nuts!
In joy and health,
