There are days when, despite being terribly busy, I just want to get into my kitchen and make something for myself. So I bake to get a break from baking!! Yes, my mind does work differently 🙂
These Wholewheat Chai Spiced Walnut Cookies were made on one of those days. I was totally exhausted from work and as I reached out for my jar of this amazing chai masala, made lovingly by my dear friend Srujan, I just had the urge to quickly bake some cookies using it. Thirty minutes later I was dunking these warm, aromatic cookies in my chai and letting my day’s worries slip away!!
I made these on the fly, with no particular recipe in mind. I just used my regular pantry ingredients right there on the counter top. A few tweaks later, this recipe is ready to be shared. This was a very happy kitchen experiment, I must say!
Slightly crispy on the outside, a little soft on the inside and eggless (yayy!!), I kept the cookies lightly sweetened as I wanted the flavour of my outstanding chai masala to shine through. Mmmm… all that cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, made these treats really special!
These are wonderful everyday , healthy wholewheat cookies which we have fallen in love with.
- I have used coconut oil here. Please feel to use butter if you wish. I’ve made these cookies with both and they are lovely with either.
- You can use any good quality store-bought chai masala, if a homemade one isn’t available to you.
I’d love to know how these turned out for you. Leave a comment below and share a picture on INSTAGRAM using the hashtag #tashasartisanfoods !
