This cookie uses an autoimmune paleo cult favourite, tiger nuts, in two forms. The flour and the butter (which in this recipe resembles peanut butter…mmm). Rebecca from Lichen Loving Paleo has created two amazeballs recipes for homemade tiger nut butter. No-nut tiger nut spread found here or tiger nut butter 2.0 found here. I just love this recipe because it really surprises you. The soft dough tastes amazing, but doesn’t seem to be much. The first pulled from the oven, these cookies remain very soft. Don’t be dismayed! Let them cool on the counter, and then rest in the fridge overnight and they will blow your mind! And who doesn’t like that, especially when you know they do not contain all that sugar.
