These collagen infused Tigernut pancakes pack a powerful protein and prebiotic punch! Tigernut is a root vegetable that’s super allergy-friendly because it’s neither a nut or a grain. It has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor, so it is good for baking desserts because you can add less sugar (#winning). Use a 1:1 ratio when adapting recipes with this flour. 2 pancakes contain 177 calories and over 13g of protein!

Sometimes, we all need a pancake.

Why not a delicious Tigernut pancake?

Many of us have tried plans like Keto, Paleo, Whole30, which prescribe a reduction of carbs and sugar for the benefit of lowering our insulin levels and thereby reducing inflammation and water retention in our bodies.

It’s awesome to feel better, but sometimes a girl wants to eat a pancake but keep her pancreas happy too.

Well good news! CB Supplements has got you covered.

These CB Supplement collagen-infused Tigernut pancakes pack a powerful protein and prebiotic punch that can maintain gut health and keep your bloodstream hummin’ like it was sippin’ a mint julep on a Georgian front porch in July!

So, you know what Collagen is, what the AF is a Tigernut anyway?

Can’t eat ’em all? That’s OK, you can freeze these little guys in freezer bag for 3 months!

Well, it’s a root vegetable that’s super allergy-friendly because it’s neither a nut or a grain. It is a prebiotic, which is great because it helps feed the good bacteria in your tum tum, is high in protein, iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins C and E. It’s low in carbs (19g per ¼ cup) but high in fiber (10g per ¼ cup) netting only 9g of carbs of digestion impacting carbs per ¼ cup. It gives you a nutty quality and is high in monounsaturated fats instead of omega-6s.

That’s NUTS! (see what I did there?)

As far as cooking goes, recipes generally turn out like “normal” flour, and according to bakers who blog, you can generally use a 1:1 ratio when adapting recipes with this flour. It has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor, so it is good for baking desserts because you can add less sugar (#winning).

Also, it works well in combination with other flours and starches like almond or coconut flour, oats and CB Supplements Collagen Powder etc. And because Tigernut flour has a crunchy, sweet texture and flavor it is good in baking recipes like pie crusts and cookies (see Tigernut Collagen Cookies), brownies or pancakes.

Recipe Tips
