To celebrate National Nutrition Month in March and the benefits of drinking tea, I came up with an out-of-this-world sweet treat. What better to pair with a soothing cup of tea than a chocolate chip cookie? These are rich, sweet and warm with a little spice to finish off each bite. Filled with tangy, fresh orange zest, ground cinnamon, smooth chocolate chips and spicy Earl Grey tea, these cookies are a new go-to on my sweet list.
If you’re not in the mood for Earl Grey, that’s okay. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters offers a wide selection of hot teas for the Keurig® system, which delivers a fresh-brewed, perfect cup of hot tea at the touch of a button in under a minute. Any time of the day you can enjoy over a dozen hot teas from Bigelow, Celestial Seasonings, Twinings, Tazo and others that come in many varieties such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Green Tea with Pomegranate and Mandarin Orange.
Tea contains antioxidants which can help slow down aging and help your cells to regenerate and repair. Even if it’s in a batch of chocolate chip cookies, I’ll raise my cup to that! My favorite? The spicy Vanilla Chai!
They’re also perfect to celebrate my sweet Mango’s 91st birthday! This batch is hitching a ride with me to Fort Worth this evening to fete this wonderful woman and I can’t wait to see her!
