First, gather your ingredients.

ground  flaxseed meal

old-fashioned rolled oats

hemp seeds

dried fruit


chai spice blend

pure  maple syrup

pure vanilla  extract

baking soda and powder

shredded coconut

smooth creamy almond butter

Split open the cardamom pods and crush the black seeds using a mortar and pestle (or spice grinder).

First, make the chai spice blend.

Mix the ground cardamom with the other chai spices.

Then, finely chop your pistachios.

Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl: oats, coconut, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and Chai Spice Blend.

Mix together the wet ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth: prepared flax egg, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk together until the mixture resembles cookie dough.

Then, fold in your mix-ins: dried fruit, seeds, and nuts.

Scoop about 3 tablespoons cookie dough onto lined baking sheets, 1/2-inch apart.

Bake at 350ºF/175ºC for 17-20 minutes. Wait 5 minutes before transferring cookies to a wire rack. Enjoy!
