I make this chai spice mix to add to cookies, pancakes and waffles. It would probably also be amazing in a muffin or quick bread. Please let me know if you try either of these! I am not going to call this chai spice mix “authentic”. It’s not. I actually wrung my hands about posting it at all because cultural appropriation is a thing and chai is not my culture.
Ultimately, I decided to share this recipe because a) people keep asking me for it and b) because I decided to disclaim the hell out of the authenticity.
To recap, this is not an authentic chai recipe. It’s a mix of spices that tastes very good in these cookies. Govern yourselves accordingly.Print
