I have been having fun experimenting with my new favorite grain free flour, Tiger nut flour. And I am sure you are wondering what it is, if you have never heard of it. And so let me give you the scoop.

  • Great for those with nut allergies
  • It has a mild, nutty flavor, and with a slightly sweet flavor
  • This flour is popular for those who follow a Paleo, gluten free, or nut free diet
  • You can purchase at your local health food stores, or online markets, such as Thrive Market
  • This should be stored in a container or jar in a cool, dry place, or in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life

How to prepare the batter:

Add the ripe banana to a medium bowl and with a fork mash up. And then add in the rest of the wet ingredients and mix. Add in the dry ingredients and mix. And lastly, fold in the diced strawberries, and mix.

Baking time:

Add batter to lined muffin tin, fill each muffin about 3/4 full, and top with some strawberry slices. And bake 350 F for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once done I let mine rest for about 10 minutes in the muffin tins before transferring to a wired cooling rack.

How to store:

I store my muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator. But these muffins also freeze really well! And I will usually freeze half the batch, for a morning I need something quick, but don’t have anything prepped.
