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 cake, pancakes, cupcakes and even crackers like these tigernut flour crackers.
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 Buy
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.

How to Make Homemade Crackers
Homemade crackers are easy to make and just as tasty as store bought ones.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor, combine the tigernut flour, sunflower seeds, tapioca flour, chia seeds, sesame seeds, basil, thyme and salt. Process the ingredients to a fine flour.
Next, add in the olive oil and water. Process the mixture until well combined.
Use your hands to roll the mixture into a ball, then flatten it on a sheet of parchment paper. Place another sheet of parchment paper on top and roll the dough between the parchment until the dough is about ⅛" thick (or thinner).
Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough into cracker shapes.
Next, place transfer the crackers (on the parchment) to a baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Then, flip the crackers and cook another 3-5 minutes.
After baking, let the crackers cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
Cool completely before placing them in a sealed storage container.
These paleo cracker are best stored in an air-tight container at room temperature. They are best eaten within a week.
