Have you tried making bread with tigernut flour yet?!
Maybe a better question is have you tried tigernut flour? As, it's one of my favorite Paleo baking flours and I use it in many of my recipes.
What are Tigernuts?
As confusing as it may be, tigernuts are not actually nuts, but small root vegetables. They are naturally sweet, with a nutty flavor - perfect for baking!
Tigernut flour is made from finely ground, peeled tigernuts. This flour is Paleo, Vegan and allergy friendly. From my experience, it bakes similarly to almond flour. They both have a fine texture and slightly sweet flavor.
I like using tigernut flour in my baking because I like having nut free Paleo recipes. Personally, I think it's easy to over-consume nuts when going grain free. Using alternative flours like tigernut flour, cassava flour and plantain flour are great ways to still bake Paleo but avoid overeating nuts.
