It’s fair to say I have an obsession with a certain spicy chai tea. ‘Celestial seasonings: Bengal spice infusion‘ to be precise. If you haven’t tried it you must run to the health food shop right now or go online and order a box, or 10 boxes, then invite me over for a cuppa. (I’ll bring the biscuits) it’s perfectly sweet and spicy and great with a dash of milk. Today I made some mighty oat cookies using the spices straight from the tea bag to flavour them. Normally I make small toddler sized biscuits but today I made giant ones. Just the right size to accompany a giant cup of tea. So satisfying and yummy, I’m hiding the rest in the cupboard so I can eat them all myself. Here’s the recipe.
Giant chia spice oat cookies
- 125g oats
- 25g plain flour
- 1 Bengal spice tea bag
- 50g soya butter
- 1/4 cup runny honey
- 1 desert spoon almond butter
- 50g sultanas
Preheat the oven to 180/gas 4 and line a baking tray with grease proof paper
Mix together the oats, flour and sultanas in a bowl
Cut open the tea bag and tip the contents in and stir to combine.
Melt the soya butter and honey in a pan then add it to the dry ingredients along with the almond butter.
Take desert spoonfuls of mixture and form 6 large cookies with your hands, flattening them onto the baking tray.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes until the edges start to go golden brown.
Stick the kettle on, make a massive cup of tea and enjoy.
