These tigernut chocolate chip cookies are a uniquely delicious take on America’s favorite homemade cookie.


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (cane, maple or coconut)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, sustainably harvested palm shortening, butter or ghee
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup tigernut flour
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend together sugar, maple syrup and fat (coconut oil, shortening, butter or ghee).
  3. Stir in dry ingredients, including chocolate chips.
  4. Form cookie dough into 10 equal balls and space evenly on the baking sheet. Flatten slightly for a crispier cookie, or leave rounded for a cookie with a softer center.
  5. Bake cookies for 15 minutes, or until the cookies are a light golden brown and soft set in the centers. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  6. Store in a sealed container and use within one week, or freeze for longer storage.
