Author Dia Kline for


  • 2 TBSP tigernut flour
  • 2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 XL egg
  • 1 TBSP ghee
  • 1 TBSP date syrup
  • 10 drops liquid vanilla stevia
  • 1/8 tsp apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat toaster oven to 350. If you don't have a toaster oven, you can use your regular oven, it's just not as fun.

  2. Use an un-greased large ceramic ramekin (approx. 9.5 oz - 4 5/8" DIA).

  3. Add tigernut flour, cocoa powder and baking soda into ramekin. Use a spoon to smash all lumps and combine. 

  4. Add egg, ghee, date syrup, stevia and vinegar into the ramekin. Use a fork to mix into a smooth batter. Remember to scrape the bottom edges and sides until throughly mixed. 

  5. Bake for 20 min. Serve while still warm.
