Hmmm, at 3 or 4 o’clock in the afternoon a warm cup of coffee or hot cocoa. It perks me up and gives a good glowing feeling on colder days. And, if I am honest, sometimes some cafeine is more then welcome. For those who love it, there is of course tea, but I’m not big fan of tea. Maybe some chai tea, but that’s about it.
So, a hot beverage, accompanied by a cookie that you can dunk in your drink and almost ‘melts’ in your mouth. Ow yeah.
I love to dunk a speculoos in my hot beverage. And I am so glad that I can still do this as a vegan! Because in Lotus Speculoos there are no animal products at all, so it is vegan. Let’s not mention the fact that there’s quite some sugar in speculoos…
Ingredients: flour, sugar, vegetable oil and fat, candy syrup, raising agent (sodium bicarbonate), soy flour, salt, cinnamon.

(I don’t know exactly if Lotus Speculoos is available in the US, but if you happen to visit Europe, you know you can eat these cookies!)
