These muffins are grain-free and sugar-free and use one of my favorite ingredients -Tiger Nut Flour!
Have you heard of Tiger Nuts? They aren’t nuts at all, but rather a low-carb legume full of fiber and vitamins. Also called Earth Almonds, Tiger Nuts are perfect with those who are allergic to nuts or don’t do well with nuts or seeds in general. (That’s me!) I enjoy the peeled Tiger Nuts for snacking. I also add them to our homemade gluten-free granola. (Check out the recipe here.) The flour works great in sourdough bread, pancakes and these muffins.
I purchased my Tiger Nut flour from Tiger Nuts USA and spoke at length with the owner about the sourcing and health benefits of Tiger Nuts. I can’t say enough about this company! Tiger Nut flour can also be found on Amazon here. While Tiger Nuts are a bit pricey, you can stretch them to last quite awhile – especially the flour. I’ve had the same bag for several months. Tiger Nuts make a great gift. See my list of Top 12 Unique Natural Gifts.
