I love experimenting with different cookie flavor combos, minimal risk and big rewards 🙂 One of my favorite cookie ingredients is Tigernut Flour – it has such a nutty taste but isn’t a nut at all. I’ve boasted my love for it before on the blog! It’s grain-free and a source of prebiotic fiber (feeds the good guys in the gut… I’ll leave it at that since this is a cookie post).
Anyhoo… I also am loving carob chips, they taste similar to a milk/malt chocolate and even unsweetened it has a naturally sweet taste, reducing the need for sugar. It’s a great chocolate replacement if you’re into trying something new, and not only that, it has a lot of health benefits. Carob has twice the amount of calcium as compared to cocoa and is rich in vitamins, is caffeine-free and is actually great for digestion, so that coupled with the ginger? WIN on the tummy. Provided you don’t eat them all, which will be tempting 😉 *Just read the ingredients, some brands are not gluten-free or dairy-free and may contain soy*
Oh and the taste is spiced and sweet with a perfectly chewy center and slightly crisp exterior! Tigernut flour makes some amazing cookies!!
