Jaggery & Almond Oat Cookies

Happy fall all! With this change of weather, I’ve always found comfort in oatmeal cookies (raisins or chocolate).

In order to make these as chewy as possible, I’ve introduced jaggery into the recipe. Just like brown sugar, this is aΒ  hygroscopic sugar, meaning that it absorbs water from its environment! That being said, make sure not to leave them out for too long if it’s humid because they’ll become too soft!

Additionally, jaggery is a form of unrefined cane sugar containing higher amounts of iron and magnesium!

This recipe is my favourite base for a multitude of flavours. Think spiced chai cookies using my chai blend, cardamom and cranberry, spiced hot cocoa or even using brown butter for a nut-free recipe!
