These molasses cookies were inspired by a vegan blog that many of our members rave about, Oh She Glows – but taken to the next level. Blackstrap Molasses is the highest quality and most nutritious kind of molasses- it has a high iron content, and is high in copper, calcium, and magnesium. Spelt flour is used in place of white flour – spelt is an ancient grain higher in protein and fiber than its counterparts, and is also richer in vitamins and minerals, and is typically easily digestible. Flax, cinnamon, and ginger add extra nutrients to these otherwise naughty tasting cookies.
Don't get us wrong, we absolutely LOVE ourselves some chai tea! BUT - a lot of times what you are getting when you are out and about is full of extra ingredients, or loaded up with insane amounts of extra sugar or syrup that is just not necessary. We've created this homemade chai tea recipe which takes the key flavors from their natural source - cinnamon sticks, ginger root, cardamon pods, and black pepper corns - so you don't need to add much else to this to truly enjoy a lovely chai at home.
