Banana Tigernut N’Oatmeal (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Banana Tigernut N’Oatmeal (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

I’m thrilled to share my most recent spin on an entirely grainfree paleo/AIP hot cereal with this Banana Tigernut N’Oatmeal. It’s creamy, naturally sweetened, scrumptious breakfast-y goodness. Seriously, guys, I’m B-A-N-A-N-A-S for this recipe.

First, a few words on the tigernut, which was totally off my radar until Dora of Provincial Paleo posted her molasses cookies recipe (swoon!) for which the base is tigernut flour. Say what? It’s not actually a nut, making it #totesAIP? Okay, cool. I’m down with that.

A little more research revealed that the tigernut (or “earth almond”) is a tuber. The nutritional information on the package I purchased of skinned and ground tigernuts, which were grown without herbicides and pesticides, lists tigernut flour as a good source of potassium, magnesium, protein, and iron. Plus it’s high in fiber. Winning.

Soothing, Warm, and Scrumptious!

A couple of tablespoons of tigernut flour is a superb addition to this hot cereal as its flavour is slightly sweet and subtly nutty. While I don’t plan on introducing large amounts of ground tigernut into my diet on a regular basis, I am always interested in trying new AIP-friendly ingredients like this one.

Happy nomming!

    Tiger nuts are interesting. They arent really a tasty snack on their own. Not enough flavor for me. Im gonna grind mine and try this out! Might even add the flour to smoothies as a good thickening agent.

    Can you omit tiger nuts or substitute them with something else? Are these added just for flavor or do they do anything to this porridge? Can you please answer my two questions, please? Thank you in advance.

      Hi, Elisa. You can certainly just omit the tiger nut flour. I really enjoy the flavour of tiger nuts so opted for adding it into this recipe. Although I haven’t tried omitting the flour, I imagine the texture will be fine without as well. I also have a recipe here on the blog for Apple-Cinnamon N’Orridge, which is very similar, so you might want to check that out too if you’re not sure about eating tiger nut flour. 🙂
