Atadwe Rock Buns ( Tigernut & Amond Rock buns)

Rock buns or rockies are a Ghanaian favourite 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 a 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 tigernut flour and some almond flour. It turned out really nice. I loved the fibre and crunch the tigernut flour added to the bun. I truly enjoyed it. I hope you’ll love it too.


  • 125g Tigernut Flour
  • 100g Almond Flour
  • 100g Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 125g Cold Salted Butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp/30ml Evaporated Milk
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place tigernut flour, almond flour, baking powder, dark brown sugar and nutmeg into a bowl. Mix together until well incorporated.
  3. Add the cold butter and using the finger tips, rub the butter into the flour until well incorporated and looks like breadcrumbs.
  4. In a cup, add the egg, evaporated milk and vanilla essence and whisk together.
  5. Make a well in the flour mixture and add the liquid egg mixture.
  6. Using a fork, mix the flour mixture until well incorporated. It should be a sticky dough. If needed add little drops of evaporated milk to get a sticky dough.
  7. Grease a cupcake baking tray.
  8. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop into the baking tray.
  9. Bake in the  preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  10. Remove from the oven, allow it to completely cool on a rack.
    Enjoy as a snack or pair with beverage of your choice
