Gingerbread Sleipnir

Texts from Superheroes slepinir

Life can get complicated when you’re an 8 legged horse with Loki for a mom, a Viking stallion for a dad, and grandpa Odin only invites you over when he wants to ride you into battle. Celebrate the true meaning of family with Lil Jinni’s tribute to Loki’s most infamous son.


Gingerbread Sleipnir

Make your sacrifice to Odin with these gingerbread cookies while you celebrate Yule this year. Soft chewy gingerbread cookies and mead (or milk) are also the perfect snack for Odin when you leave carrots, straw, and sugar in your boots by the chimney for Sleipnir.
