I don’t very often make dessert, but when I do, it needs to be simple – simple ingredients and few steps, and fast -because I don’t like spending a lot of extra time in the kitchen just to treat myself! I also love familiar flavors, so this TigerNuts Apple Crumble Crepe recipe is definitely a winner!
While I’m not a recipe creating expert, I’m pleased to have accepted the invitation from TigerNuts USA, to dabble with some of their ingredients – Sliced TigerNuts and Premium Organic TigerNuts Oil. (Thank you for sending me these goodies TigerNuts USA!)
While I’ll admit that my first recipe idea to use these ingredients was a fail (I knew it was a long-shot but I had to try), I’m inspired to present you with something new and delicious.
If you’re just getting started on the AIP and you haven’t heard of TigerNuts, I’m sure you’ll be running across recipes soon that call for one iteration of them or another.
Before we go any further, you should know that they’re not nuts at all, they’re actually tubers, so they’re 100% AIP elimination stage compliant! Woohoo! (You can learn more about them in my post about unfamiliar foods you’ll run into on your AIP journey – click here.)
TigerNuts flour was one of the first ingredients I decided to try when I started my personal AIP journey, and I have to say they’re probably one of my favorite AIP dietary discoveries. You’ll find lots of recipes posted in my AIP Recipe Collection Facebook Group that calls for them, and I think the flour makes some of the most realistic, crunchy AIP cookies I’ve ever tried.
If you’re sensitive to coconut, you’ll want to pay careful attention, as you’ll find TigerNuts can often come to the rescue – TigerNuts butter, oil, milk, flour, flakes and more – so be sure to check them out!

While I’m hoping to bring you some more inventive TigerNuts recipes in the days ahead, this simple combination came together in the kitchen and I just had to share it right away!
Don’t have any wraps to make crepes? No worries – this recipe is totally delicious served simply as a crumble.
- 4 to 6 Large Organic Cooking Apples (I used McIntosh)
- 1 Tbsp Premium Organic TigerNuts Oil
- 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon (or to taste)
- 1/2 tsp Ginger Powder (or to taste)
- Pinch of Himalayan Salt
- 3 to 4 Tbsp Coconut Butter (plus more for garnish)
- 2 to 4 Tbsp SlicedTigerNuts (plus more for garnish)
- 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey
- 4 Nuco Coconut Wraps
- Peel, core and slice apples.
- Heat tigernut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
- Add the apples to the pan, sprinkle with cinnamon, ginger and salt and sautee apples stirring occasionally. Cook until they reach desired tenderness, approximately 10 minutes should do it.
- Stir in coconut butter, maple syrup or honey and tigernut flakes. There's no exact science to this. Give the mixture a taste and add additional seasoning, coconut butter or tigernut flakes if you wish.
- Spoon a little less than 1/4 of the mixture onto your wrap. Roll and place on your desired serving plate. Top with a few more apples, drizzle with coconut butter and a healthy pinch of tigernut flakes.
- Enjoy immediately!
Don't have coconut wraps and don't want to go to the bother of trying to make your own AIP option? This dessert is delicious even without the wrap - simply serve in a bowl as you would any apple crumble. Drizzle with coconut butter and tigernut flakes and enjoy immediately. Refrigerate any left overs - they're just as tasty cold.
You can make this recipe coconut free if you need it to be ... just use tigernut butter in place of the coconut butter - easy peasy!
