Tiger Nut & Sweet Potato Scones

We are so excited to bring you this recipe created for us by the lovely Kimberley Parsons, writer author of The Yoga Kitchen! Kimberley is a massive fan of our tiger nuts, and  after making a batch of tiger nut mylk – her new obsession- she wanted to know what to do with the leftover tiger nut meal. This is something we at the Tiger Nut Company are always being asked and so when Kimberley created these delicious scones, adapted from a recipe from her brilliant book, we were delighted!!

Using pureed vegetables adds moisture and a binding texture,  a great solution for healthier baking!   This recipe is easy, healthy, gluten-free,  vegetarian, paleo, AIP complaint and delicious!
