Chai Spice Cookies

chai spice cookies

These have got to be the most amazing spice cookies I have ever tasted, let alone ever made!! My first exposure to a chai spice cookie was at my local food co-op, where they had these huge and delicious chai spice cookies–baked fresh every day. My daughter absolutely has to have one every time we get cookies there. They are just that good. Imagine my surprise then when I realized that I could make the same cookie in a grain and sugar free version, and have my daughter say they taste like the full sugar version! However, her favorite still comes from the co-op. Oh well. At least my version is a close second. Hey–that’s not bad coming from a sugar junkie. 🙂

Anyway. These are based on the same spice mix that flavor the popular chai tea beverage, and while they do not contain the tea, they come very close to tasting like chai tea. Enjoy the recipe, and do let me know how you like them.

Chai Spice Cookies

1 ¾ cup cashew flour

2 tsp coconut flour

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp sea salt

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

½ tsp ground nutmeg

¼ tsp ground cloves

3 tbsp butter, softened

2 tbsp coconut oil

¼ cup granulated stevia blend

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place parchment paper over a cookie sheet and set aside.

Grind cashews in coffee grinder until you have the required amount. Pour into small mixing bowl. Add coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, and spices, and mix well. Set aside.

In medium mixing bowl, cream together butter, coconut oil, and granulated stevia blend. Add egg and vanilla, and mix until creamy. Add in dry ingredients and mix well until all is incorporated.

Drop by tablespoon on prepared cookie sheet roughly an inch apart, and flatten slightly. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until sides are golden and the tops are slightly dry. Let sit on stove for about 5 minutes, and then carefully transfer to a cooling rack. Cool completely, and serve.
