Sweet Tigernut Butter




It’s worrisome these days how many people have an allergy to nuts. Schools have outlawed nut products – for good reason – and parents are left to find alternatives that they’re little ones not only like the taste of, but that are also good for them. Enter tigernut butter. Naturally sweet with a hint of vanilla, tigernut butter is full of Vitamins C and E, oleic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium and fibre. We like it on toast, apple wedges or as a substitute for peanut butter in a PB&J. It’s a TB&J!
