6-ingredient Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Balls!

But recently I’ve become obsessed with a totally new food item that I’d never heard before until a few months ago: tigernuts. Tigernuts are not nuts, but actually teeny tiny tubers (like potatoes!). They look sort of like wrinkly hazelnuts or very small, hard dried figs (see them on the plate above!). And they’re a nutritional superstar, with 1 oz serving containing 10% iron (energy), 7% zinc (good skin, immune system, hormones), plus heaps of magnesium, calcium, B6, and E. Because I’m always trying to be mindful of meeting my zinc and B needs, these have come in so handy. The taste is mildly sweet, nutty and sort of addicting, and I have been eating the tigernuts with a little dried fruit and pumpkin seeds like a trail mix. But the really nice thing about tigernuts is how it lends itself to raw vegan and gluten-free cooking! Tigernut flour has become such a pantry staple to whip up quick raw vegan recipes. My favorites are raw vegan (and paleo, natch) cookie dough balls. I added some maca powder for extra protein, energy, calcium, iron, and vitamin C. Try not to surprise people with your soaring energy. Stir in the chocolate chips and combine. Form into mini ball shapes with your fingers. They’re ready to eat now! *Chocolate chips are not technically (or untechnically) raw or paleo, but they are a non-negotiable in my book and I’ve said so in the past. Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie!
