Cinnamon Chai Oatmeal Cookies with Chai Caramel Glaze. Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and made with oats and just 8 ingredients. Amazing chai flavors from cinnamon and allspice.

Im in a little bit of shock today. I am officially 40 years old today and I dont know why, but no birthday has ever really hit me quite like this one. No offense to anybody, but 40 has just always sounded old to me, and well, now Im there too, haha. As my friend told me today, welcome to the 40s grown and sexy club hahaha! I know its just a number though and I feel fantastic!

Well, I decided to share these absolutely delicious cookies on my birthday with you all. I looooooooove chai tea and anything flavored with chai. It is a borderline obsession. From the smell to the intense, distinct flavor, it is so addicting to me. These cookies embody my love for both cinnamon and chai, which by the way, cinnamon is my all-time favorite flavor….even more than chocolate. Shocker, I know. Whats not to love about oatmeal cookies? Even better that these arevegan, gluten-free and oil-freeoatmeal cookies. Then, the fact they are cinnamon and chai oatmeal cookies, just sends them over the top. Especially with this chai caramel glaze. It is incredible. I love cookies that are slightly crispy, but then I also love soft cookies that are super chewy. Heck, lets be real, I just love cookies period. Well, these are so soft and so chewy. SO GOOD. They are just bursting with chai and cinnamon flavor….to die for really.

Vegan, Gluten-free, Oil-free Cinnamon Chai Oatmeal Cookies. Amazing texture and even more amazing flavor. These are so good and addicting! Easy to make and super fast!

1/2 cup (128g) roasted creamy/drippy almond butter

1/4 cup + 1/2 tablespoon (90g) pure maple syrup

1/2 cup (50g) gluten-free rolled oats

1 tablespoon (10g) brown rice flour or sorghum works too

2 tablespoons (32g) creamy almond butter

Water to thin if desired (I added about a teaspoon so that it was a glaze to drizzle on top)

Note: I used a really short cut simple version of spices here of just cinnamon and allspice, if you want the traditional range of chai spices, you can replace those above with a chai spice blend.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Warm your almond butter to a smooth consistency prior to measuring, if its super thick or cold.

Combine the almond butter, syrup, water, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice and salt into a medium bowl and stir until completely smooth.

Stir everything until completely smooth and thick. It should be thick but still able to stir. If it is really thick/stiff, add a tiny bit more water just to loosen it up some. Start with just a teaspoon. If you are subbing the almond butter with another nut butter, please note that this may affect your need for a tiny amount of water as well.

Drop by using a tablespoon cookie scooper scoops onto the pan. You can make larger cookies if you prefer. Using a cookie scooper, I got 10 cookies.

The batter should very slightly spread out once dropped onto the pan. If your batter is super thick, just slightly press down the cookies.

Bake for 10-11 minutes, dont over-bake. They should be puffed up and just starting to turn golden on the edges.

Let them cool about 10 minutes on the pan before transferring with a spatula onto a cooling rack.

Make the glaze by combining the ingredients until smooth and spread on top. Add water if desired and drizzle on top. For the glaze, dont add water and it will stay smooth and firm up some on the cookies like an icing.

Nutrition per cookie (based on 10): 123 calories, 6.8g fat, 3.5g protein, 13.5g carbs, 2.4g fiber, 6g sugar, 25mg sodium

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! You dont look a day over 35 so dont even sweat it!! These cookies look delicious, eat an extra serving today.

Haha! Thank you Britt! Youve had the oldest number guess so far, lol! But Ill still take it since its years younger than my age! Lol

THISTHISTHISTHISTHIS. Want. So muchD: Had no idea you were 40, you dont look anywhere near it. Definitely not old anyway, what with the increasing life expectancy and all youre just going to keep on being comparitively younger xp

Happy birthday Brandi! I know what you mean. It was a shocker! It makes it much harder for people when you look like youre mid to late twenties! I think those of us who are young on the inside will never get older than 28…. it is a side effect of living your life to the fullest everyday. Enjoy yourself and know that you are beautiful–and so are your recipes!

Thank you so much Ceara!! OH both of those cookies are amazing and totally different! These are insanely soft and chewy oatmeal cookies and the chocolate chip ones are more classic ones…both good, just totally different!

Happy birthday! You look great, my husband said you dont look over 34! Ive just discover your blog on instagram and I just can say that is amazing! Your creations look very tasty and healthy! I have some food intolerances and allergies so your recipes will be very helpful to me! Greetings from Barcelona!

Thank you so much Gloria! That was so sweet of your hubby! I love all these age guesses…so funny! Out of 100 plus people on here and Instagram, all but two thought I was in my 20s, so that makes me super happy! LOL! So glad you love the recipes too, leave me feedback when you make any of them!

I just recently discovered how much I love chai in desserts, and Ive been loving oatmeal cookies since I was about 5, so Im all over this recipe 3 These look SO soft, which is my favorite texture for a cookie!

Thank you so much Natalie! These are super chewy and soft!

these look wonderful. Can I use regular flour?

Hi Min! I have not tried these with regular flour so Im not sure of the result, I would think theyd make them a tad dry, so just try it with the same amount of flour (as brown rice) but using 2 less tablespoons, so basically 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons and if the batter is too wet, add a little bit more until its thick, but smooth. The batter should not be stiff. Hope that helps. The brown rice does help them to get a wonderful texture, so again, I dont know how the regular flour will do. Let me know if you try them!

These look to-die-for not that anything on your blog doesnt, but the chai glaze is the best part. These look so yummy!

Aww thanks so much Audrey!! The glaze really takes them over the top and its soooo good!

Happy Birthday!! That is so exciting!! …and seriously, age is just a number… you look amazing!! …also, these cookies look delish! 🙂 Great way to celebrate!!

Aww thank you so very much Cailee, I really appreciate that!!

Happy Birthday!! Mine was June 2nd so pretty close to yours! I firmly believe age is a number. You look amazing so enjoy the day!! And the cookies look so good. My favorite cookie is soft and chewy and Im a fan of SunWarrior. So perfect!

Thank you so much Chrysta, that is so sweet of you to say! I love most types of cookies, the slight crisp outside and soft/chewy inside is my favorite, but these are more the soft and chewy kind which I absolutely love as well. The oatmeal makes them more of a soft cookie, but the flavors are so dynamic, they are wonderful! Im new to Sunwarrior products and I like them!

Happy belated Birthday! And what delicious cookies too – I also love anything chai flavoured, so I bet these would be a hit in my household.

Thank you so much Thalia, so nice of you!! Chai is my obsession!

I am a few days late but I wish you a Happy 40th Birthday yippiiieeeee! What delectable cookies! I made them today & loved that added chia glaze too! They were just fabulous even! xxxx

Aww thanks so much Sophie! So sweet and Im thrilled you loved these cookies, thank you!

I just took these hot out of the oven and couldnt wait to try. They are wonderful. I didnt wait to make the glaze just plain. I have to cut down the sweetener and cut the maple syrup about one half and added more water. They were still sweet enough for me. Added raisins to a couple cookies too, that was like oatmeal cookies. Thank you so much. Keep the cookie recipes coming. I cant have the oil and thought my cookie choices were about over.

Yay! So wonderful to hear that Debbie! Thank you so much for the awesome feedback, so glad they were a hit!

Made these tonight and added raisins. The initial taste is almost like peanut butter and jelly. They are wonderful.

Yay! SO happy to hear you loved these Estee! And mmmm, peanut butter and jelly, that just made me drool! Thank you for the feedback!

AMAZING! Thanks to your posting the link in the chai waffles post, I tried these. So delicious. I made the T of rice flour by just grinding some brown rice in the spice grinder—worked perfectly. These give your perfect chocolate chip cookies some pretty intense competition. Ive been trying more of your recipes since I find them healthier than a lot of other vegan recipes. I had a bit of a health scare thinking I was pre/diabetic. Turns out Im not. Just found that out today. But my husband agrees: we dont want to go back to the old standards I used to make with oil, refined sugar, and flour—we find yours even more delicious! The onlt thing that disappointed me was that my icing didnt look like yours. Im used to my stuff not being as pretty as your photos, but my glaze blends into the cookie—almost cant be perceived—just looks like almond butter, whereas yours looks like maple syrup was drizzled on top…

Awesome! So glad to hear you loved these so much Ellen! That is wonderful to hear too and I agree, best to stay away from the oils as much as possible. About the glaze, I just tested it right now to double check and mine looks dark exactly as in my photos. Did you add the cinnamon and allspice? That darkens it to the beautiful brown color and I then add about a teaspoon of water to thin it out and then drizzle it over the cookie. You can always add more water depending on how thin/loose you want the glaze. Also, did you use roasted or raw almond butter? If yours was light, raw almond butter is much lighter than roasted, so that could be it too.

Yup—definitely was liberal with the cinnamon and all spice. used roasted almond butter. But I didnt thin it out—wanted thick, gooey icing. My stuff will never look like yours, but thats nota problem—Im all about teh atste!

Hmmm, weird. I could literally send you a screenshot of mine from my phone and its dark, just like in the photos, so not sure why yours was light. I didnt use any trick photography, so you shouldnt have an issue with it looking as pretty as mine, nothing fancy here, haha! But, of course, the taste is most important!

I made these today for our Memorial Day dessert and they are delicious and easy, too! I will be making these again and again. I am wondering where I can find the nutritional info. for them. I see the stats for the glaze but cant find it for the cookies. Maybe Im looking in the wrong place? Im doing Weight Watchers and would love to be able to figure out the points per cookie. Thanks for another wonderful recipe!

So happy to hear you loved these Kay, thank you for the lovely review! Sorry about that, Ive added the nutrition for the cookies now above!
