We love how festive and whimsical linzer’s are, so naturally we had to make a Raaka version that satisfies your chocolate craving while playing with bright flavors to make a cookie that is truly one of a kind. In the spirit of linzer tradition, our recipe starts with an almond/hazelnut flour base, which is blended with just the right amount of Tanzanian cacao to give this light cookie a hint of richness.

Chocolate Chai Pudding Pie (V & GF)

Chocolate Chai Pudding Pie (V & GF)

This holiday pie is inspired by a favorite: the chai latte. This is an easy, vegan, no-bake pie that’s halfway between a chocolate pudding and a cheesecake, with all the coziness of a warm latte. As a base, we used Willa’s Kitchen Dark Chocolate Oat Milk, which is made with our very own Peruvian cacao powder.

We pair this filling with our gluten free buckwheat cacao pie crust for an earthy balance that plays well with the spices. A white...
