Chai Spice Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
My daughter loves Chai tea. Loves it! So when the local food co-op started selling chai spice cookies, she absolutely went nuts. In my quest to make healthier cookies for my family, I have gone the grain and sugar free route. I tried this recipe to lure my daughter off sugar...they are still her second favorite cookie, only to the co-op's version. Enjoy!
