Atadwe Rock Buns ( Tigernut & Amond Rock buns)

Rock buns or Rockies are a Ghanaian favorite snack sold as Street food. They’re so easy to make with basic ingredients. When my kids ask to bake with me, this is one easy and quick recipe I fall on for stress-free baking. We recently baked a batch of my original Rockies and I just couldn’t stop eating. So in a bid to find a healthier version, I adapted my Rockies recipe by using my homemade tiger nut flour and some almond flour. It turned out nice. I loved the fiber and crunch of the tiger nut flour added to the bun. I truly enjoyed it. I hope you’ll love it too.
