I need to research this TIGER NUT flour more!!!!

purelytwins March 5, 2015 - 8:46 am

YES!! it’s our favorite

Lucy March 6, 2015 - 7:21 am

do you think protein powder would work in place of the tigernut? or would I need to add a starch of some sort as well?
thanks so much!!

purelytwins March 6, 2015 - 9:00 am

you could try just protein powder, it might turn out. but do a little starch might be a good idea too. maybe do a mx of the two

These are so cute! I’ve been playing around with tigernut flour in some other recipes and I find that the end product is sometimes grainy/gritty/sandy. Do these have a gritty texture? Thanks!

purelytwins June 2, 2015 - 8:32 pm

When we have tigernut plain we find it gritty, but when we use it recipes we haven’t noticed it.

Can honey or srevia replace sugar?

purelytwins March 19, 2016 - 11:28 pm

You can use another sugar replacement. If you use honey you might not need the coconut milk

How long will these keep? Frozen, Refrigerated, or at room temperature?
They are really cute, and look Yummy. I want to try them for a church bake sale.
Thank you.

We would say about 3 – 5 days. For longer shelf life you could freeze them.

I would love to make these cookies for my daughter. Only problem is I live in South-Africa and shipping/ordering it only the Tigernut Flour will cost a lot and will take time to get here. What else can I use instead of Tigernut Flour?

purelytwins January 4, 2019 - 7:46 am

You can use any gluten-free flour for it

Suzanne April 13, 2021 - 6:13 pm

This looks so good! What a great way to still enjoy this cute treat while sticking to a nutritious diet!

Vanessa April 13, 2021 - 6:14 pm

Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?

purelytwins April 15, 2021 - 10:40 am

We would say about a week and longer if stored in freezer and pulled out when wanted to snack on.
