Pumpkin Bar Recipe with TigerNuts

Pumpkin Bar Recipe with TigerNuts

Subscribers to Ecocentric Mom’s “Mom Box” will be treated in their November box to a sample of Organic Gemini’s TigerNuts.  Never heard of a TigerNut? Well, you are likely not alone. Turns out, TigerNuts are not really nuts…but they pack an incredible nutritional punch. Organic Gemini TigerNuts products are all very high in fiber, in a particular form of fiber known as resistant starch. Resistant starch is a prebiotic that resists digestion and helps our bodies to naturally develop probiotic bacteria ensuring a strong immune system, which is key to eliminating various causes of fatigue, regulating body temperature, and preventing the onset of most modern diseases.

They are also Non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, vegan, and raw and high in iron, potassium, magnesium, and Vitamins C & E. Got all that?  With an ingredient this healthy, we set out to find a delicious recipe for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday – we’ll all be doing enough eating this week, why not sneak a little nutrition into our recipes as well?!

We found this awesome Pumpkin Bar recipe over at the Radical Roots, a blog dedicated to inspiring more sustainable lifestyles and a better understanding of the power that real nourishing foods can have on our lives.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup TigerNut flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3/4 cup sliced tigernuts (like those in your Ecocentric Mom November box)
  • 1/2 cup grass fed butter softened
  • 3/4 cup fresh roasted pumpkin
  • 2 TB maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • pinch of clove

WHAT YOU DO:

  • preheat oven to 350F and put butter in a 8×8 pan to soften as the oven heats
  • combine sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and sliced tigernuts in a medium bowl.
  • add butter and use hands to combine until you have a crumbly mixture
  • add remaining ingredients to blender and pulse until you have a smooth pumpkin spice purée
  • take half of your TigerNut mixture and press it into the bottom of your pan (should be greased from the butter)
  • smooth out the pumpkin purée on top of your first layer of TigerNut mixture
  • now, add the remainder of the TigerNut mixture and press down
  • bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned
  • let cool, cut into squares, and ENJOY!
