How to make Crunchy Homemade Tigernut Cereal Bites (Easy Recipe)


You’ll never want to shop the cereal aisle again once you’ve tried these Crunchy Homemade Tigernut Cereal Bites. They’re everything you want in a homemade cereal: sweet (but not too sweet!), crispy, and soft. The best part is that you can eat it warm and fresh from the oven. 

*These cereal bites are healthier than traditional store-bought cereal because you can control exactly what goes into them. This recipe only calls for 6 ingredients that can be prepped and in the oven in just ten minutes, thanks to the key ingredient, Natureul Tigernut Butter.

Better than peanut butter, this butter is actually nut free and naturally gluten free. It’s also made from organic tigernuts and natural spices and oils, so you can rest easy knowing that you’re choosing the best of the best for your baking. 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 15 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

Serves 1-2


  • ½ cup Natureul Tigernut Butter 
  • 1 cup gluten free or regular flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup neutral oil (coconut or avocado work best!), melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: cinnamon and nutmeg


  1. Prehead the oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and any additional spices if you’re opting for those.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, vanilla extract, and the tigernut butter and stir until completely combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Using ½ teaspoon scoops, roll the mixture into small balls. They don’t have to be the exact same, just similar. Place them on the lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the balls have firmed up and started to brown around the edges. They should be much drier than the original mixture.
  7. Allow them to cool completely, then scoop into a bowl or divide between two bowls and top with your milk of choice! Enjoy!

Tips for Making Crunchy Homemade Tigernut Cereal Bites

Think outside the cereal box. These tigernut cereal bites are great as breakfast cereal, but they’re also the perfect on-the-go snack or easy, allergy-friendly appetizer for small gatherings. Just store them sans-milk!

If you want to drizzle more tigernut butter over the top of the cereal bowl, it will add more contrasting texture and extra tigernut flavor. Add it by the spoonful for total tigernut overload.

Customize your cereal. Add mix-ins like dried fruit or chia seeds to your bowl, dunk or drizzle the cereal bites with chocolate, or roll them in cinnamon sugar for a tailored cereal experience.

Stuff them with chocolate. Doesn’t chocolate make everything better? Turn these tigernut bites into tigernut chocolate bombs by rolling the mixture around a chocolate chip or two!
