Heavenly scented little cookies that will melt on your tongue. The dough is naturally sweetened and the ayurvedic spices such as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves have an energizing effect and provide for Christmas pleasure. ✨
Preheat oven to 170°C | 340°F and lay out a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put the chai tea in a coffee grinder and grind for about 1 minute. Then pass the powder through a fine sieve and dispose of the larger pieces.
Put all dry ingredients in a large baking dish and mix.
Add the moist ingredients in succession to the flour mixture. First stir with a fork and then knead with your hands until a slightly moist dough has formed.
Now form approx. 40 cherry-sized balls and distribute them on the baking tray.
Finally, put an almond slice on each ball and then put the chai cookies in the oven for 10 minutes.
When they have finished baking, let the cookies cool on the baking tray.
When the cookies have completely cooled, it is best to keep them sealed in a cookie jar so they won't dry out. Enjoy!
* If you don't have loose tea, you can just cut open 4 teabags instead.
**Or sub with ground almonds.
I always choose organic produce whenever possible. It’s not only better for my health (and yours, too), but also for our environment. 🌍💫💚
