Chai Lords Gingerbread Cookies

Tis the season for festive treats! These vegan gingerbread cookies will be your new go-to Christmas recipe! They are super simple to make and only require 7 ingredients. We used our best selling Instant Chai Latte for the gingerbread spice we all love. Our Instant Chai Latte is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, preservative free and non GMO.



  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons vegan butter 
  • ⅔ cup light brown soft sugar
  • 100 maple syrup
  • 50 g molasses
  • 4 tablespoons of Chai Lords Instant Chai Latte powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups + 2 tablespoons plain (all-purpose) flour or gluten free flour


  1. Place the butter, sugar, maple syrup and molasses in a medium saucepan over a low heat and stir until melted. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add chai powder and baking soda then whisk until smooth. The mixture will foam up a bit.
  3. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined and no dry patches of flour remain. Wrap the dough in clingfilm or an environmentally friendly alternative and refrigerate for a couple of hours until it is firm enough to roll out.
  4. Roll the dough out either on a lightly floured surface or between two sheets of baking parchment to about 3-5mm thick, depending on how thick you want your cookies.
  5. Cut out as many shapes as you can with your choice of cookie cutters. Bring the scraps together into a ball and re-roll to cut out more shapes.
  6. Place them spaced apart on a couple of baking sheets lined with baking parchment.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  8. Bake the cookies for 8-12 minutes. The cookies will still be very soft but will firm up as they cool. 
  9. Leave the cookies to cool on the trays for a couple of minutes then carefully transfer them to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, decorate the gingerbread cookies with icing.
