Chinese 5 Spice Gingerbread (GF)

Chinese 5 Spice Gingerbread (GF)

This gingerbread is delicious and “just sweet enough.”

For this, I started with my Sunflower Butter Energy Bar (GF) recipe.  My original goal was to create a gingerbread-flavored version.  However, I decreased the seed butter by quite a bit, and I added some baking soda and vinegar.  This resulted in a fluffy “cake,” rather than a dense “bar.”  The tofu and molasses create a moist sponginess.

I also wanted to use some Chinese 5 Spice that I’d been neglecting.  It contains a blend of star anise, cinnamon, clove, fennel, and pepper.  It smells heavenly!

Don't use it for meat and poultry!

1 box (12.3 oz) Firm Silken Tofu (Mori Nu)
1/4 C maple syrup
1/4 C molasses
1/4 C Once Again sunflower seed butter
1/2 C non-dairy milk
1/2 t apple cider vinegar
1 t vanilla extract


1/4 C EACH:  quinoa flour, millet flour, brown rice flour, garbanzo bean flour & rolled oats (GF)
1/2 C oat flour (GF)
2 T ground flax seed
3 T fine shred unsweetened coconut
1 t baking soda
1/2 t EACH:  Chinese 5 Spice, cinnamon, ground ginger & cardamom
1/4 t EACH:  salt, coriander & nutmeg


Puree the wet ingredients in a food processor.  Combine with the dry ingredients.  Grease a square glass pan with coconut oil.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  (You can also try baking in muffin liners for 23 minutes.  I’m going to do that next time!)  Cool on a wire rack before cutting.

I recently signed up to get email updates from some Animal Exploiters’ websites.  Today, I click-opened my E-copy of Dairy Today Magazine.  Here is a screenshot that I took of an ad for Pfizer Animal Health’s vaccine, Bovi-Shield Gold HB.

The text reads,

“If she can’t stay pregnant, what else will she do?”

“Keep your cows pregnant and on the job.  Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB is the only viral combination vaccine to prevent Lepto hardjo-bovis for a full 365 days.  Ask your veterinarian or Pfizer Animal Health representative how to protect her pregnancy, your reproductive program and your bottom line.”

Dairy Ad

This is ad is so offensive on a number of levels.  I really don’t believe I need to add any commentary to the hunting reference.  The image is simply PATHETIC.

I will say a few things about cows:

  1. Cows should NOT be “kept pregnant” and “on the job.” 
  2. Her pregnancy should belong to her.
  3. Her life should NOT be serving anyone’s bottom line.
  4. Her milk belongs to her baby.

GO AWAY, Dairy Industry.
