Vegan Ginger Flapjacks

Ginger, Latin Zingiber officinale, is a perennial plant from the Zingiberaceae family, which is probably native to Southeast Asia. The pungent, aromatic rhizome of ginger has been used as a spice and medicinal plant in China and India for thousands of years. It first came to the Mediterranean region with traders in the first century AD, then fell into oblivion and was rediscovered in the Middle Ages. Ginger helps against nausea and promotes digestion. It can be enjoyed as a tea with honey, but also helps with colds and rheumatic diseases. This vegan ginger flapjack, with its fruity ginger note and good whole grain ingredients, is ideal as a snack during a break or on a hike.
