These Hazelnut Chai Spice Cookies are a very delicious gluten free, dairy free, grain free, egg free, fructose free and guilt free treat. They only take minutes to make and are the perfect after school snack or weekend treat for the kids.
What’s so nourishing about them?
Well, firstly hazelnuts are a rich source of protein, essential fats, and fibre. They also contain antioxidants and many minerals. The coconut oil is so very nourishing. You can find out more about its amazing health benefits here. The cinnamon stabilises blood sugar levels for a sustained release of energy. The ginger and cardamon assist digestion.
Makes 10-12 cookies
150g (1¼ firmly packed cups) hazelnut meal
55g (¼ cups) virgin coconut oil, (melted if solid)
50-85g (¼ cup approx) brown rice syrup or raw honey (taste the batter and alter the sweetness to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamon
½ teaspoon ginger powder
1 tablespoon tea or water

No hazelnut meal?
You can use almond meal instead!

The best thing about these cookies is that if you do manage to stop at one or two and wait a while, you will find yourself satisfyingly full. That is of course if you do manage to stop at all.

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie
“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke
“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose
