Change Color of NavBar Text Using SASS

I am trying to build out a custom theme for my ionic application using SASS. I cannot figure out a way to extend the .title class in SASS or to apply a custom class to the title element that Ionic renders. I can apply the custom class to the navbar element but then the white text applied to the dynamically generated header tags via the .title class overrides it.

Has anyone figured out how to do this short of directly modifying the .scss files, something I am trying to avoid?
