  • 125 g pumpkin puree
  • 90 g tigernut flour
  • 40 g arrowroot (see notes for substitutions)
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil + 1 teaspoon for the tin
  • 4 tablespoon olives seeds removed
  • 2 tablespoon herbs of Provence (which is a mix of rosemary, savory, oregano and thyme, use whichever you have on hand if you don't have Provence herbs in your pantry)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Pinch of sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C)
  • In a blender, combine the pumpkin puree, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Blend until well combined.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients : tigernut flour, arrow root (or tapioca), baking soda, herbs of Provence and salt.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon and then add the olives. Mix again with a spoon until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Grease a 7 inches / 18 cm diameter tin with olive oil and transfer the batter to the tin.
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes or until it reaches a golden color. And voilà! You can serve it warm or cold.
    Bon appétit !


Although I spend quite a lot of time converting all my recipes to cups (yes, manually, in my kitchen!) I highly recommend using a scale and measuring for weight rather than using cups. The reason for this is, apart from the whole debate on accuracy, the density of certain gluten free flours and starches differ a lot from one brand to another. Also keep in mind that all cups are not the same size all around the world which makes another good reason to use a scale so you won't get this issue.
If you are not cassava intolerant, you can use tapioca flour instead of arrowroot. Both are AIP and paleo compliant. If you are not on the AIP nor paleo diets you can use potato or corn starch instead of arrowroot.
Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is calculated using a nutrition facts calculator. It is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
