Basil & Thyme Grain-Free Crackers

Have you ever had a tigernut?  In case you don’t know, tigernuts aren’t actually nuts.  They are little, round root vegetables with a naturally sweet taste and hard, rough outer shell.  They are rich in prebiotic fiber, making them beneficial for your gut and are a good source of magnesium, potassium and plant protein.  Tigernuts are also naturally gluten free and Paleo-friendly!  (So of course I had to get my hands on some and do a bit of recipe testing 😉 )


I had the opportunity to sample a variety of Organic Gemini products.  They sell whole tigernuts, peeled tigernuts, tigernut granola, flours, oils and even horchata (a drink made using tigernuts).  All of their products are organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher, Paleo and nut-free.  I recommend giving their products a try, especially if you have a nut allergy or eat Paleo.  (And no, this post isn’t sponsored, I am just highly impressed with their products.  I also think tigernuts are a great way to add some variety to your diet.)


I haven’t done a lot of baking with tigernuts; mostly, I’ve experimented with tigernut waffles and crackers like these Basil & Thyme Crackers.  One thing I like about tigernut flour is that it is naturally sweet, meaning I don’t need to add much sugar (if any) to the recipes I have tested.  Although I haven’t mastered the art of baking with tigernut flour, these Basil & Thyme Grain-Free Crackers turned out perfectly!  They are allergy-friendly, Paleo, Vegan, nut-free and do not contain any added sugar or sweetener.
