Hello Friends! I have been meaning to post this Dreamy Chai Cookie recipe for over a week–but life got too busy! These spice-infused chewy cookies are dreamy–thus the name. 🙂
There is a mouthful of spices in every cookie including– ginger, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, black pepper and cinnamon! YUM!
And of course, they are low FODMAP. I used oat flour in the recipe to boost the nutrition a bit too.
I think they make a great holiday treat!
Note: you can also freeze some of the dough if you want to cook these in smaller batches at a later date. I tend to freeze half of the cookie dough. Then I can bake some later in the week or month. There is nothing quite like a warm freshly baked cookie right out of the oven! Am I right?

- 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups oat flour (use commercial brand vs. blending oats, for best results)
- 1/2 cup gluten free flour blend (such as Bob's Red Mill GF 1 to 1 baking flour)
- 3 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Cinnamon sugar topping, if desired-
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In medium mixing bowl, add softened butter and sugars, blend with stand mixer or electric beaters.
- Add egg and vanilla, mixing to blend.
- Slowly add dry ingredients in batches, blending as you go. First add in gluten free flour blend, then the oat flour, then baking soda and spices.
- Scoop out cookie dough about the size of large marble (2 teaspoons), roll into ball.
- If using, make cinnamon sugar topping in small bowl, simply add and mix cinnamon and sugar together. Then roll top of cookie into cinnamon sugar, and place cookies on the baking tray (cinnamon sugar side up) about 3 inches apart. If not using cinnamon topping, simply place cookie on tray.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cookies cool and set before eating.

These cookies sound delicious ! I can’t wait to try them. The description mentioned cardamom but I didn’t see cardamom in the ingredients list. I just wanted to check before I make them. Thanks!
Mary….thank you for keeping me on track! I missed it in the ingredient list–and it makes the cookie! Thanks for taking the time to reach out! I need an editorial team! 🙂
These sound tasty! The description and the directions mention oat flour, but that’s not on the ingredient list. Is it in place of, or in addition to, the gf flour…and how much oat flour?
I see the oat flour in the ingredient list, Lori.
looks great; will be part of holiday baking. Will something bad happen to them if I take out 1/2 cp sugar?
If you reduce the sugar–you may have to up the gf flour blend just a little to have the right mixture of liquid to dry ingredients for the best results.
Kate, I made these, and they taste delicious! But mine spread a lot, and I was wondering about the 3 tsp. of baking soda. I know gluten-free recipes need different levels of additives, but doesn’t the 1:1 flour already include some leavening? Just trying to figure out what went wrong. Or do yours spread a lot, too? Thanks! Still loving your pumpkin snickerdoodles, too!!
The cookies were good but spread out too much. I had to process my own oat flour and wondering if this is why?
I think that IS exactly why–I used Bob’s Red Mill Oat flour–and it is finely ground.
I made these and they were yummy! I usually don’t like to bake with so much butter though (too much saturated fat). I dipped these in a pre-bought mix of cinnamon, sugar and vanilla.
Could I substitute almond or coconut flour for the oat flour? I can’t eat anything with oats of any kind.
You can certainly try either of those substitutions–but not sure how the final product would taste or work out!
Also, do note, that coconut flour is high FODMAP–so that substitution would not be appropriate for the Low FODMAP elimination diet.
Can you use earth balance instead of real butter? I’m best to stay away from dairy.
I might give it a try! I haven’t tried it myself though–so not sure how it will work.
