Taylor Swift’s Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies, Veganized

Everyone is talking about Taylor Swift’s Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies this holiday season! Here’s a veganized version of her delicious recipe so we can all get in on the fun.

She’s a singer. She’s a songwriter. And apparently she bakes wildly delicious cookies!

Taylor Swift sent everyone into a frenzy when she shared an image of these delectable Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies on her Instagram story a few years back. Here’s an image capture of the story courtesy of Seventeen magazine

What’s in Taylor’s Chai Tea Cookie Recipe?

The original recipe has a lot of butter, vegetable oil and sugar. Here’s the ingredients list if you want to make the non-vegan version of this recipe!

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract, or the seeds of 1 vanilla bean
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 chai tea packet
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon eggnog

To veganize this recipe, we’re going to make a chai tea cookie with almond flour, with the additional of a delicious almond butter eggnog icing! These cookies are truly to die for.

How To Make These Cookies

To make these vegan chai tea eggnog cookies, the ingredients list is a lot shorter than the original version because that’s how we roll.

You’ll need almond flour, coconut or brown sugar, some baking powder, a chai tea bag, almond milk and vanilla extract. For the icing, you simply need some almond butter, a little vegan eggnog (if you can find some) and a little more sugar for that extra sweetness. 

To start, preheat the oven and line a baking sheet with parchment.

You’re first going to combine your dry ingredients, including the almond flour, coconut sugar, chai tea bag, baking powder and a little bit of sea salt. 

Then pour in the almond milk and the vanilla extract into the bowl, and mix until a batter is formed. You’re going to seperate this dough into approximately 15 small cookies about a tablespoon each. 
Throw them in the oven, then make the icing by combining almond butter with a little vegan eggnog and sugar. Once the cookies have cooked and cooled, you can slather the icing on and enjoy!
