Teff tigernut flour cookies combine two of my favorite flours: teff flour and tigernut flour.
Teff flour is a gluten-free flour, which makes it a great option for people with Celiac disease and other gluten sensitivities. It is widely known for its versatility, especially in baked goods. It has an earthy, slightly nutty and sweet taste and pairs best with chocolate. Use it in your recipes and you’ll end up with delicious brownies, cakes, and cookies. It can also be used to make waffles, cookies, bread, crackers, and other baked goods. It is packed with calcium and full of fiber.
Tigernut flour is a nutritious gluten-free flour with a unique sweet taste and a slightly gritty texture. Since tiger nuts are completely gluten-free, nut-free, and grain-free, this flour is also a wonderful alternative for people with certain food allergies. Because of its slightly sweet and nutty flavor, it allows you to cut back on added sugar. Read more about tigernuts here.
It works really well in combination with other flours and starches such as white rice flour, brown rice flour, coconut flour, almond flour, tapioca flour, potato starch…
