Paleo Tigernut Waffles
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup water or milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ tigernut flour
  • ½ cup cassava flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (plus more, as needed, for waffle pan)
  1. Plug waffle iron in and start preheating.
  2. Put the eggs, water or milk, and vanilla extract into a medium-sized bowl. Whisk.
  3. Add the flours, salt, and baking powder.
  4. If your coconut oil isn’t liquified, gently melt on the stovetop or in a cup in the microwave and add to bowl and whisk right away until smooth.
  5. Brush pan with oil/melted fat of choice, as needed, and put about ½ cup (or amount appropriate for your waffle pan). Cook until done, and lightly browned.
  6. Remove with fork, and repeat the process until done with batter.
  7. Makes between 2-4 waffles, depending on how full you fill your pan, and how large your waffle pan is. I recommend a half waffle as a serving size since this is a very fiber-rich recipe (that said, I’ve definitely eaten a whole one for dinner!) You can also reheat in the toaster oven or toaster.
