There’s so much to love about this Lavender Citrus Cake recipe! It’s the perfect raw dessert to make for Mother’s Day or anytime of year really. Lavender is one of my favourite herbs for it’s lovely smell and calming effects. I call it the good vibes herb. The herb is known as a relaxant and analgesic herb and can commonly be used for insomnia, indigestion, insect bites and arthritis. I’ve tried something a little different in this raw dessert by using tigernut flour in the crust. I’ve recently been on a tigernut kick thanks to my friends at The Chufa Co., a local Toronto based small business, that sells tigernut milks and tigernut flour. Despite the name, tigernuts aren’t actually nuts. They’re root vegetables that are naturally sweet and have a fierce nutritional profile. One bottle of Chufa Co.’s milk has 5 grams of fibre and prebiotics to promote the good bacteria in our gut. I have a feeling tigernuts are going to be as popular as hemp and chia.. just watch! If you can’t get your hands on tigernut flour just yet, simply replace the tigernut flour with almonds. I hope you enjoy the lavender, citrus and tigernut flour combo as much as I do.. it’s a recipe I know I’m going to make again and again!
