One of my favorite Paleo baking flours is tigernut flour. Over the years, I've slowly created more and more recipes with this grain free flour. Including: Tigernut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies, pancakes, cupcakes and even crackers like these Basil & Thyme Grain-Free Crackers.
These gluten free basil & thyme crackers are one of the best Paleo cracker recipes. They are perfectly crisp, have a nutty, buttery flavor and last well up to a week. Furthermore, these crackers are allergy-friendly, Paleo, Vegan, nut-free and do not contain any added sugar or sweetener.
What are Tigernuts?
Have you ever had a tigernut? Tigernuts aren't actually nuts. Instead, they are little, round root vegetables with a naturally sweet taste and hard, rough outer shell. Tigernuts are rich in prebiotic fiber, making them beneficial for the gut. In addition, they are a good source of magnesium, potassium and plant protein. Tigernuts are also naturally gluten free and Paleo-friendly!
One thing I like about tigernut flour is that it is naturally sweet. Meaning, I don't need to add much sugar (if any) to my baked goods. Plus, this flour is nut free, grain free and easy to work with!
Best Tigernut Flour to Purchase
As gluten and grain free baking has become more popular, more and more tigernut flours have become available. The two brands I recommend include:
Both of these brands produce a high quality, organic tigernut flour. I've had great success in baking with each of these products.
The best place to buy tigernut flour is online. You can either purchase it from Amazon, or on the company website. Other places to find tigernut flour include health food stores that sell a large selection of organic products. But, I’ve found that buying online is cheaper.
The recipe for these Basil & Thyme Grain-Free Crackers is extremely easy to throw together. In addition, they are a tasty, healthy, kid-friendly snack. For more Paleo friendly cracker recipes, check these out:
