This recipe is adapted from A Squirrel in the Kitchen.


1 cup tigernut flour
3/4 cup arrowroot flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup palm shortening
1/4 maple syrup
1 tbsp gelatin


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Either use silicon mats or parchment paper on baking sheets.
  • Combine the dry ingredients.
  • Melt the palm shortening in a small dish. Add the maple syrup. Now add the gelatin on top and whisk until there are no lumps.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine.
  • Scoop cookies onto the baking sheet with a cookie scoop. Then flatten them slightly with your hand. Dont flatten too much as they do spread a little.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, let cool on the pan for 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.


  • Palm shortening makes everything turn a yellow/orange. This includes your hands! So wear gloves and rinse dishes and utensils as soon as possible before putting in the dishwasher.
