Tiger Nut Lemon Cheesecake Bars (AIP, Nut & Dairy Free)

by | May 2, 2020


Tiger Nut Lemon Cheesecake Bars are rich & creamy with a hint of tartness and tiger nut crunch. The perfect cheesecake recipe if you’re following an AIP, plant-based, nut or dairy free diet.

DID YOU KNOW? Tiger nuts are recommended for healthy skin, weight management, and fertility—all because of vitamin E!

One serving of tiger nuts provides you with 278% of the daily recommended value–that’s 3mg of vitamin E!

Vitamin E is important to our health due to its powerful antioxidant properties that may help reduce free radical damage and slow the aging process of your cells.

Free radicals not only weaken and break down healthy cells, but these molecules may also contribute to heart disease and cancer.

It’s important to have a diet rich in antioxidants to protect yourself from oxidative damage over time, and tiger nuts are a great source of antioxidants.
