Sun, sun, sun! Finally there is a little breeze of Spring around the corner, or am I just imagining it? At least the thermometer shows clear plus degrees and I am looking forward again to the little midday walks with our two huskies to get some sun. Today I’m going to take a quick look at the construction sites, because maybe you’ve already noticed that we’ll be moving soon. Yes, that’s right and I’m getting a proper, great new and most importantly spacious kitchen. Let’s see, maybe I’ll start a little garden too? Or first of all a herb garden? There is definitely enough space there.

Ayurveda style vegan cookies

Cashew puree, oil, maple syrup, vegetable yogurt, almond flour, gluten free flour mix or fine spelt flour (for the non-gluten-free option), baking soda, baking powder, a pinch of salt and cardamom. The cardamom I grind fresh in the mortar, but there are already ready cardamom powder to buy as a spice. I find that the freshly mortared Cardamom however, is much more intense than the powder. Otherwise, there are the green cardamom capsules that you can also use here. Just put it in the mortar and go.

Simply place all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a silicone spatula, or wooden spoon to form a dough. It should look as nice as mine in the picture (self-praise stinks). All joking aside! Then all you need is a shallow dish of coconut blossom sugar and some ground cardamom. Finally, divide the dough into 16 even pieces, shape into cookies, and roll in the cardamom-coconut flower mixture. How that already smells!

How healthy is actually Cardamom?

Cardamom is one of the oldest spices in the world and was already used by the ancient Indian Vedas. No wonder it has such an important position in Ayurveda today. It shall give people who do not like the intense flavor so much, but I must confess that I am totally in love with cardamom:

  • Stimulates the Digestion on
  • Has an appetizing effect (is that why I ate maybe 3 cookies at once?).
  • Alleviates Nausea and flatulence
  • Refreshes the Breath
  • Contains up to 7.5% essential oils (cineole), which have anti-inflammatory, analgesic and have an antibacterial effect

Perfect with a glass of Almond milk a Golden latte or a hot chocolate . I also like to dip the cookies in almond paste once in a while, so yummy!

I am of the opinion that the ayurvedic Spring can start from now on. Are you ready? With a tray, oven and a handful of ingredients, you’re ready to go.
