One Bowl Chai Chewy Cookies

One Bowl Chai Chewy Cookies

The kitchen is already a daunting environment to be in, especially when you throw scratch baking into the situation. Like many hobbies, baking is not suited for everyone, especially because there’s much less room for error as opposed to cooking.

For example, if you add a pinch more of baking soda than a recipe called for, everything you had dreamed of your dessert becoming may be thrown out the windows. Goodbye, dreams of finally becoming a professional patisserie today!

We’ve been there too and, honestly, we’re fed up with the smoking ovens, wasted flour and excessive hours now up in flames similar to the last attempt I made baking something I saw on Tik Tok. We’ve got some good news to share with you amateur bakers like ourselves out there! Here’s a quick, easy, fool-proof cookie recipe that I promise you and your friends begging for more of.

This recipe is:
Oil-free! The binding agent is the nut butter and the flax egg
Perfectly sweetened and flavored with a conglomeration of spices
Similar to cake, it has a dense, chewy texture that’s addictive!
The perfect comforting fall dessert during these uncertain times
Vegan and full of natural ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
