Tigernuts are a delicious, sweet tuber (so not a nut at all!) which are rich in fibre and may have a protective effect against heart disease and diabetes. They make a great gluten free flour substitute for people avoiding wheat and other grains.
These muffins are simple to make and can be transformed into a variety of flavours by substituting the apple, pecan & cinnamon with options such as raspberries & coconut or blueberries & pistachio – just use a little nut milk to moisten if using drier ingredients.
