Tiger Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies (Nut Free, Paleo)

by | Apr 23, 2020

Tiger nut chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy and so delicious! The perfect cookie recipe for those following a nut free paleo lifestyle or those looking to add more variety and nutrients to their diet.

You might be wondering — “Why tiger nuts, Jen?”

Well, my obsession with tiger nuts started a while back when the BF was having bad gut reactions to nuts.

At that time, most of the treats I made contained some form of nut which were a big NO for him. So, I began searching for a nut replacement that would not only make delicious treats, but also keep his belly happy.

It turns out that tiger nuts, which are small tubers and not actual nuts, are a great alternative since they have a similar taste and texture to nuts. I like to describe them as a cross between an almond and pecan with a hint of honey.

Eventually the BF’s issue with nuts went away, BUT the loads of tiger nuts and tiger nut flour that I bought didn’t!

SO, when life gives you tiger nuts, make tiger nut everything! Right?!

This time around I decided to try a classic treat–THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE! Turns out that tiger nut flour works well as a base. These cookies turned out soft and chewy, like all chocolate chip cookies should be.

If you’re following a nut free paleo diet (or maybe you just want to add more variety and nutrients to your diet), I highly recommend this recipe.
