  • 1/2 cup Chai-Spiced Nut Butter (or store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (ensure gluten-free as needed)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped raw pecans
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the chai-spiced nut butter, maple syrup, baking soda, and salt and stir or whisk until smooth and thoroughly combined.

  • Add the rolled oats, chia seeds, and chopped pecans and stir well to evenly distribute ingredients.

  • Scoop out ~1 ½ Tbsp portions of dough using a cookie scoop (we like this one) or two spoons, place on the baking sheet, and press lightly to make a thick, flat cookie about 2 ½ inches in diameter (they will not spread much, so it’s okay if they are close together). It’s normal for them to stick to your hands a bit when pressing — you can lightly oil your hands if needed!
  • Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes, until the edges begin to turn golden brown. Let cool slightly before enjoying.

  • Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

*If you want to use a store-bought nut butter, we suggest cashew and/or almond butter, plus the following sweetener + spices mixed into the nut butter (amounts as recipe is written, so starting with 1/2 cup of nut butter): 1 ⅓ Tbsp coconut sugar, 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 tsp ground cardamom, 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tiny pinch cloves, 1 tiny pinch sea salt. Add more spices to taste!
*Prep time does not include making the nut butter.
