Tigernuts: Healthy Snacks for a Grain Free Diet

You never stop learning in the food world. There are always new healthy ingredients to discover, new flavors to cook with, new textures to add a kick to your dishes. Literally, you can never get bored in the kitchen!

One of the coolest findings I have done recently is an ingredient I immediately fell in love with: “tiger nuts”, also known as “chufa”!

Not only that you can treat yourself with a perfect healthy snack, but you can use tiger nut flour, tiger nuts milk and tiger nuts oil to make amazing grain free healthy foods that are suitable for anybody who’s following a paleo and autoimmune protocol diet.

Despite their name, tiger nuts are not nuts, but tubers, small root vegetables originated in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean area that are extremely high in fiber, iron, potassium, and vitamins E & C.

Tiger nuts have as much iron as red meat; as much potassium as coconut water and a high concentration of magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and vitamins E & C.

One ounce of tiger nuts contains 40% of our daily recommended fiber, and because they are a ‘prebiotic fiber’ they resist digestion and become fuel for our probiotic bacteria!

Here are some of my favorite Paleo and Autoimmune Protocol RECIPES with tiger nuts!

Can you believe that this superfood comprised up to 80% of our ancestors’ Paleo diet around 2 million years ago?! …And for all those who have nut or grain allergies, the good news is: this ingredient is the most perfect allergy-free alley for cooking and baking!

Yes, because not only can you eat raw tiger nuts out of the bag like a snack, you can also enjoy flour made from tiger nuts to make amazing grain free treats, or cook with tiger nut oil!

…And the best thing is: tiger nuts are naturally sweet and therefore they allow you to bake with absolutely no sugar!

Now that I’ve known them, I could not imagine my kitchen without tiger nut flour!!!

Now it’s on you! Have you ever tried tiger nuts or chufa? What are your favorite recipes to make with it? Share all the details in the comments below. So many people looking to eat grain free are striving to make their paleo diet easier!

Thank you so much for watching, commenting and sharing!
I will see you next week!!
