Web Chef Review: Organic Tiger Nuts Flour - cookingwithkimberly.comIn this recipe, we’re using Organic Tiger Nuts Flour, which is an organic, nut-free & gluten-free alternative to all-purpose flour. It is a light flour, which has a lovely, almost coconut-like flavor, in our opinion. The flour is super versatile, not only when baking, but for any of your flour needs.
