Tigernut & Granola Muffins

🐯 Tigernut… what?!


📌 Fact – Tigernuts are not actually nuts; they are a small root vegetable!


🌈 They are a nutrient powerhouse; high in protein, fiber, iron, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins like E and C. And because tigernuts provide a semi-sweet flavor, we can cut back on adding any additional sugars into our baking!


✅  Taste-tested and approved because they are truly GRRRRRRRRREAT!
