Hazelnut Chai Spice Cookies
The chai and hazelnut flavours in this cookies are a match made in heaven. They are easy to make and really delicious!
Servings: 12 cookies
- 150 g hazelnut meal (1¼ firmly packed cups)
- 55 g coconut oil (¼ cups) melted if solid
- 50-85 g rice malt syrup or honey (¼ cup approx.)
- 1 tsp vanilla -powder, extract or essence
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cardamom
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- 1 tbsp tea -or water (this is important or they will spread)
Preheat your oven to 150℃/300°F (fan-forced).
In a mixing bowl or food processor, combine all of the ingredients above until well combined (Thermomix 5-10 seconds, speed 5).
Roll tablespoons of the mix in your hands and place them onto a tray lined with baking paper.
Flatten with the back of the fork. Sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top (optional).
Bake for 15 minutes or until starting to brown on top.
Use the brown rice syrup, not honey.
Choose rice malt or maple syrup as your sweetener.
Add cacao nibs or a piece of dark chocolate. SO yum!
