i’m not even obsessed with chai

It just makes its way into most of my breakfasts.



Chai Spiced Cinnamon Rolls with Cardamom Pepper Icing


3 cups of whole wheat flour

3 teaspoons of baking powder

1/4 cup of sugar 

1/3 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of chai tea


1/4 cup of Earth Balance (or more coconut oil)

1/2 cup of sugar

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

a pinch of ginger, nutmeg, cloves, orange peel, and allspice


2 cups of powdered sugar

1/4 cup of nondairy milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 teaspoon of cardamom

1/4 teaspoon of black pepper

Whisk the dry dough ingredients together, add in the milk and coconut oil, stir in the chai tea and squeeze out any water from the bag into the mixture. Refrigerate for a half hour to an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the filling ingredients, it should be thick.

Whisk the powdered sugar, cardamom, and pepper together. Add in the wet ingredients for the icing. Refrigerate.

The dough should be stiff. Knead it and make sure its covered with flour. Roll it and flatten to about a half inch thick. Cut into strips lengthwise and spread the filling mixture over it. Roll up each one and put it on a pan. Bake for about an hour.

Let the rolls cool before you pour the icing over them. This is important.

This goes without saying: I am abandoning my raw diet this morning.
