Ok, I have something fun to share with you today and I seriously could not wait!
Have you ever had an “aha” moment while using a certain product?
A couple months ago I was contacted by Jovial Foods. I had purchased their products before in the grocery store but now that I know their story and the reason they created the products I am officially in love. Jovial Foods was started because the owners, Rodoflo and Carla, had a daughter who was extremely sensitive to modern wheat. As in, she was sensitive to the point where her hair would falling out, she had horrible sinus issues, asthma, and mood swings. Crazy huh? Both Rodoflo and Carla had studied agriculture and wanted to find a way to allow their family to enjoy tasty food while accommodating their daughter’s severe food sensitivities.
This is where it gets cool. Through their research they found out that the changes in plants and wheat varieties has caused the rising number of gluten intolerance. So they started diving deeper and found an ancient grain that was almost extinct called Einkorn and have based their entire company around this grain. It is pure in form and has not be altered like many modern day grains. Best of all their daughter could eat it without reactions!!! They decided to name the company “Jovial” because of the joy it brought their family to be able to eat healthy and tasty again!
Such a cool story right?
Today’s recipe is actually from new the Einkorn Cookbook that was just released! As I was looking through trying to find a recipe to test these Soft & Chewy Ginger Cookies popped right off the page to me! First, because well.. they are cookies … duh … and secondly because they sounded perfect for the holidays! They are made using the Einkorn Flour and holy yum are they good. The cookies are seriously soft and chewy (which is my dream cookie) and have an awesome ginger flavor that permeates through every bite.
I bet you money that you won’t be able to tell the difference taste wise using the Einkorn flour and I KNOW it will leave you feeling so much better than regular flour! We’ve been eating them with coffee, almost like you would biscotti! 🙂 De-lish! They will definitely be a part of our Christmas Cookie list this year!
So if you are gluten intolerant or just trying to find a healthier way to indulge on those pastries, breads, or cookies then give this Einkorn flour a go. I promise you will love it and your tummy will too!
