All words that come to mind when thinking about these cookies. Simply throw the ingredients together in a food processor and stick in the fridge! All with yummy nutrition from cashew butter, tigernut flour, tahini, cacao, and chocolate protein powder. Sweetened with a touch of honey and organic cane sugar, these cookies are perfectly sweet without too much of the sweet stuff that would leave you needing a nap. 😉
What is Tigernut Flour?
Tiger nuts are actually legumes, not nuts, and are a healthy source of prebiotic fiber, magnesium, potassium, plant-based protein, and monounsaturated fats while being relatively low in calories. It is gluten, soy, dairy, and nut free, so it’s a perfect alternative for those with food allergies! Use it in replacement of regular flour for a grain-free, higher-fiber and higher-protein flour for cookies, cakes, muffins, pancakes, etc.
