Chai Granola 

Ingredients:

  • 4 Cups rolled oats

  • 1 Cup sliced almonds

  • 1 Cup chopped pecans

  • 1 Cup raw sunflower seeds (I also use pumpkin seeds if that is what's in the cupboard). You can also add flax if you like.

  • 1/3 Cup canola oil

  • 1/4 Cup of honey (I add a bit more than this cause we like it to stick together)

  • 1/4 Cup Chai Honey

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

  • 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
     

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl stir dry ingredients and in a separate bowl mix oil, honey, vanilla, and spice. Toss it all and mix. Bake in oven stirring every 10 mins until golden.

20-25 mins total. Store it in zip locks or glass jars.

Chai  Tea Cookies 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 teaspoons of loose Masala Chai Tea (grind in Magic bullet until small flake, not powder

    Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

  • 2 tbsp water

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and confectioners sugar in a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add in flour, salt, and loose tea leaves. Continue to mix until a soft dough forms, the mix will be dry and crumbly at first but will come together.
    Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until its ¼ inch thick. Cut out cookies using a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 18-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
    Once cooled, whisk together icing ingredients until smooth. Dip half of each cookie in the icing, let excess drip off and run a spoon along the edge to remove any extra, then place on wax paper to set.

For a stronger initial flavor, mix the butter and tea leaves together about 6 hours ahead of time to infuse...

    In a bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, and the brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
    Add the molasses and egg, and beat the mixture until it is smooth. In another bowl whisk together the flour, the ginger, the cinnamon, the cloves, the baking soda, and the salt, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir the mixture until it forms a soft dough.
    Form the dough into small balls. Roll the balls in the Chai Sugar, coating them, and arrange them 2 inches apart on buttered baking sheets.
    Bake the cookies in batches in the middle of the oven for 13 to 15 minutes, until they are crisp and cracked but still soft inside.
    Let them cool on the sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer them with a metal spatula to racks and let them cool completely.

    Pour the chai tea over the dates and soak for 10 minutes. Blend the chai tea, dates, lemon juice, non-dairy milk, honey, and vanilla on high until smooth.
    In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix briefly. Add the date mixture. Stir to combine. Lightly oil or line a loaf pan and pour in your batter, smoothing out the top. Bake for 35 minutes at 350F. *Cool completely before frosting and slicing. Keep in the fridge.

Ingredients

  • 1 heaping Tablespoon of Masala Chai Tea Mix

  • 1 1/2 Cup Boiling Water

  • 4 Egg Yolks

  • 1/3 Cup Chai Honey

  • Pinch Salt

  • 1 Cup Whipping Cream *

  • 1 Cup Whole Milk *


Directions
Make strong chai by adding Masala Chai Tea Mix to Boiling water in a French press or teapot. Let steep for ten minutes then press or strain tea and spices out. Set aside.
While the tea is steeping, whisk together yolks, honey, and salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly pour in cream and milk and whisk until blended. Place saucepan over low to medium-low heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon or spatula. You do NOT want to boil this mixture, it will scramble the eggs! Stir until steam rises from liquid, approximately 6 minutes. Remove from heat and add strong chai tea. Store in a glass jar in the fridge until cooled. Serve over ice with holiday spirit (spiced rum). Sprinkle with ground cinnamon or nutmeg.

 

*You may substitute almond milk for the cream and milk
