These look really tasty, but I can’t put into words how off putting it is to see the first ingredient is palm shortening. It seems wildly off-brand.
I imagine not every one is aware of why palm shortening is problematic. Here is an article to shed some light.
Hi Jenny, Thanks for raising this (my apologies for the delayed response, somehow we missed your comment earlier). Palm shortening is causing a lot of problems in the world. We’ve edited the recipe to recommend Spectrum organic palm shortening. It is certified Organic, Sustainably Harvested and Rainforest Alliance. We keep the heat well under 392 (at 325) to protect its healing properties. It is high in saturated fat, but such fats do provide important immune boosting properties. Like with any sweet, just don’t eat too many! Stay well, Colleen
