Easy Vegan Tigernut Cookies Recipe
Makes approximately 8 cookies
Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 11 minutes
Total time 21 minutes
- 1 cup Natureul Original Tiger Nut Spread
- 1 cup Tigernut Flour
- ⅛ cup vegan butter
- 2 flax eggs
- ½ cup sugar or sugar alternative
- ½ cup brown sugar or alternative
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup gluten free/dairy free chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
- Melt the tiger nut spread and vegan butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 45 seconds-1 minute. Set the mixture aside and allow it to cool slightly while you prepare the other ingredients.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Once combined, add both sugars and whisk until uniformly combined and no lumps remain.
- Creating a well in the center of the bowl, pour in the cooled vegan butter and tiger nut spread. Add the vanilla and flax egg and stir until a soft, sticky dough forms.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes (or as long as overnight!). Remove from the refrigerator and begin forming dough balls using roughly 2 tablespoons of dough per ball. Slightly flatten each ball using the heel of your hand or the bottom of a glass, and place on the baking sheet 2 inches apart.
- Using a fork, create the indentations by pressing the tines gently into the dough disks until the dough starts to rise through, forming the cross-hatch pattern. You may need to coat the back of your fork with tiger nut flour to prevent it from sticking to the dough.
- Bake cookies on the center rack for 11-14 minutes.
- Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before consuming. Enjoy!
