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 countertop. 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 (yay!!), I kept the cookies lightly sweetened as I wanted the flavor 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.
