What if I told you that there’s such thing as a GRAIN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, NUT-FREE and REFINED SUGAR-FREE chocolate chip cookie?
You’d probably react the same way I did before I attempted to create this recipe…rolling of eyes and muttering under your breath something like, “cardboard isn’t edible.”
Well…drum roll please…
There IS such a thing, and they DO taste delicious!
In fact, I may…or may not…have also frozen some of the cookie dough to enjoy as a snack when I have a sweet tooth!
Hope you enjoy, my friends!

I’m curious to try this recipe but substituting the Tigernut Flour with something else because I don’t have this type but have other gluten free flours. Do you have any suggestions for what to use OR not to use?
Hi Linda – I’m sorry. I only tested this recipe with the Tigernut Flour. If you decide to test it out with an exchange, let me know how it goes! Thanks!
Hello Linda , did u try this recipe with another type of flour ? If so which one & how did it turn out?
Thank you !
