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!
Sweet Tigernut Butter (vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, Paleo)
1 cup tigernut flour
10 tsp tigernut oil (or a light tasting oil)
¼ cup tigernut milk flavour of choice
½ tsp vanilla
2 tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground ginger
pinch of salt
Blend all ingredients together until completely smooth.
Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy on toast, fruit slices, or straight from the spoon!
