Ingredients List

Makes eight ½-cup servings

Step-by-Step Recipe 

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and adjust the oven rack to the middle position.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten free rolled oats and salt, stirring only a few times until the salt is dispersed evenly throughout the oats but doesn’t settle at the bottom of the bowl.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the coconut oil and tigernut spread. Microwave on high in 10-second increments until melted and smooth. Once it reaches the desired consistency, add the maple syrup and stir until the mixture is thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of salted oats and stir with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon until all of the oats are completely coated and the mixture is forming some clumps.
  5. Spread the oat mixture evenly on a lined 9x13” baking sheet.
  6. Gently slide the baking sheet into the oven so as not to disturb the placement of the granola.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and aromatic. Remove from the oven and use a spatula to work in sections, flipping the granola to expose the other side.
  8. Bake for another 5-10 minutes until evenly colored.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  10. Serve over ice cream, yogurt, porridge, smoothie bowls, or eat as-is! Happy snacking!

How to make Tigernut Granola (AIP): Your New Favorite Healthy Meal (Easy Recipe)


Tigernut Granola (AIP): Your New Favorite Healthy Meal 

Tigernut Granola is a great snack for those who love granolas but can’t usually enjoy it because they have dietary restrictions or other allergies. This specific recipe is tailored to an AIP diet and can be enjoyed by almost anyone! 

What is AIP? AIP stands for autoimmune protocol, a diet typically recommended for (and followed by) those with autoimmune disorders. This diet is similar to the Paleo diet and is often considered a more strict version, as many (but not all) of the safe foods and ingredients in the Paleo diet are okay for AIP.

Why is this Tigernut Granola recipe good for AIP? Tigernuts are AIP (and Paleo) approved–they’re not actually a nut, are naturally gluten free, and contain no grains and no preservatives! The ingredients in this recipe are all AIP compliant, including Natureul Tigernut Spread in Classic flavor. An important note: in most cases you can swap out the two flavors of Tigernut Spread interchangeably, but because this recipe follows a specific diet, you have to stick with the Classic flavor.  

Adhering to AIP standards doesn’t mean you have to miss out on delicious treats! You can dress up this vegan tigernut-based granola by using dried fruit to add texture and more complex flavors. You can use any AIP-approved fruit like apples, bananas, blueberries, cherries, coconut, cranberries, dates, figs, peaches, pears, papaya, raspberries, and strawberries, just to name a few. You can add as many of these fruits in any combination that you like to create the ultimate granola, and top the whole thing with flakey salt for added crunch and a naturally satisfying sweet-and-salty flavor. 

Because of the natural subtle sweetness of the tigernut (and the added fruit), it may not be necessary to add a sweetening agent to this granola unless you prefer yours a little on the richer side. In that case, you can add ⅛ to ¼ cup maple syrup or honey, but keep away from processed sugars to ensure you stay AIP compliant. No matter what you choose, this organic AIP tigernut granola will be a snack you have on repeat all summer and beyond!


  • 2 cups chopped raw tigernuts
  • ½ cup Natureul Tigernut Spread in Classic flavor
  • ½ cup coconut chips (large or small flakes–your choice!)
  • ¼ cup coconut or avocado oil
  • ½-1 cup dried fruit of choice
  • ½ teaspoon flakey finishing salt
  • Optional: ⅛ to ¼ cup maple syrup or honey for additional sweetness 

AIP Tigernut Granola Recipe 

Makes eight ½ cup servings or sixteen ¼ cup servings

  1. Preheat the oven to 300℉ and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, stir together the coconut oil, Tigernut Spread, and optional liquid sweetener. Microwave on high in 10 second intervals until melted and drippy. (Psst: you can skip the microwave if you start with melted coconut oil in the first place! Just stir in with the other liquids.)
  3. In a large bowl, combine the chopped tigernuts, dried fruit, and coconut chips.
  4. Pour the entire contents of the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients. Fold and stir until everything is coated in a layer of the coconut oil and tigernut spread concoction.
  5. Spoon all of the ingredients onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes on one side and flip over with a spatula. Then bake for another 10-15 minutes until both sides are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Enjoy your tigernut spread!

Tips for your perfect Tigernut meal!

If you like this organic tigernut granola on its own, you’ll love it as part of a larger meal! Use your granola liberally to add a crispy texture to fruit bowls and dairy-free yogurt, AIP compliant porridge, or as a cereal substitute by dousing with plant-based milk for breakfast. You can use it to create AIP-friendly granola bars by adding a few binding ingredients, pressing in a tray, and cutting into bars or squares. Make dessert even better by using your granola as a topping! You can store extra in an airtight container for up to 3 months in the fridge.

How to make Colorful & Yummy Tigernut Smoothie Bowl (Super Easy Recipe!)


Smoothie bowls are a delicious alternative to drinkable smoothies and are great for breakfasts, snacks, and desserts! If done right, they’re as much a feast for the eyes as for the stomach. This Tigernut Smoothie Bowl is incredibly thick, velvety smooth (thanks to the tigernut in the smoothie!) and incredibly healthy.

This smoothie bowl is also versatile: you can use your favorite frozen fruit and toppings, plus any additional mix-ins you want to boost the nutritional value of the smoothie or alter the color! Here, we’ve topped the tasty smoothie bowl with fresh raspberries, cacao, coconut chunks, chia seeds, and of course, Natureul Granola and extra tigernut spread!

This guilt-free breakfast smoothie bowl is enhanced with organic, all-natural Natureul products–they’re allergy friendly and never include added sugar or artificial ingredients, so you can snack without second thought. Shop the entire line of Natureul snacks to complete your pantry!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Total time: 10 minutes

Serves 1-2



  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • ½-1 cup frozen fruit (for berries, use ½ cup, for larger fruit chunks, use 1 full cup)
  • ¼ cup plant-based milk or dairy
  • 2 tablespoons Natureul Tigernut Spread, plus more for topping–choose your favorite flavor!
  • Optional toppings as seen here: coconut chunks, fresh raspberries, Natureul Tigernut Granola, chia seeds, cacao nibs


  1. In a high-powered blender or food processor, add all the base ingredients and pulse to chop through the frozen fruit. Once the chunks start to incorporate, you can switch to constant high speed until it becomes a smooth mixture. It may be necessary to occasionally stop the blender to scrape down the sides to ensure that all the ingredients are combined.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and arrange your favorite toppings (or use the ones suggested above) and enjoy!

Tips for Making Your Perfect Tigernut Smoothie Bowl

You can change the consistency of the smoothie bowl to make it more or less liquid by adding more plant-based (or regular) milk one tablespoon at a time until it’s reached your desired consistency. You can also thicken the smoothie up by adding a few tablespoons of Tigernut Flour to add more intense tigernut flavor and increase the density!

If you want to drizzle more tigernut spread over the top of the bowl as we’ve done here, heat up a tablespoon or two of it in a microwave-safe dish and use a teaspoon to drizzle the melted tigernut spread over the smoothie bowl. Don’t have a microwave handy? Mix it with a splash of runny natural maple syrup to make it easier to pour!

Serving more than one person at a time? Batch-create smoothie bowls by doubling or tripling the recipe–but only do as much as your blender can hold or risk a messy explosion. Once you’ve made the smoothie base, create an assembly line and add toppings one at a time to each bowl until they all look the same!
