Almond Butter Chai Bites

Recipe Post by Gourmet Gab

One of my favorite things about fall is the return of chai. When the weather cools down a bit, I turn to a sweet and spicy chai tea to warm me up. A dirty chai latte (chai latte plus espresso) is a delicious way to change-up a usual coffee drink. The chai spice combination usually is composed of a handful of the following: green cardamom, fennel seed, ginger, peppercorns, cloves, coriander seeds and star anise. I love using some of these spices individually in baking and was brainstorming how to be able to combine them into one dessert. Then I tasted Revival Food Co.’s Chai Time almond butter.
