These tea cookies have a servings of MegaFood Relax + Calm* Magnesium Powder in Blackberry Hibiscus Oasis flavor mixed right into the icing. It adds a little pop of flavor. The powder also works well in water for added convenience. I like to take it at night to support relaxation and calm.* You can use code BAILEY20 for 20% off of your purchase at megafood.com

Magnesium is an essential mineral that supports the nervous system, muscle, and heart health.*  I make these tea cookies when I need extra help relaxing or during busy weeks. They pair perfectly with a hot cup of chamomile tea, and they have a nice chewy crunch to them, making them perfect for dipping in tea or milk. 

These cookies are completely vegan!

I made these tea cookies with a chia egg. You can easily use chia as an egg replacement in several recipes. Flax eggs also work great. You will need 1 tbsp. of chia seeds and 2.5 tbsp. of water. Let it sit for a bit to form a gel and voila! You have a great egg replacement. 

Making the vegan icing it so easy!

This icing only uses four ingredients and it is totally vegan. Make it as thick or thin as you prefer for consistency. I chose to make it nice and thick to give the cookies more color. Optional to use powdered sugar, almond milk, MegaFood Relax + Calm* Magnesium Powder in either Blackberry Hibiscus Oasis or Raspberry Lemonade, and optional blackberries for color.

Vegan Tea Cookies

These vegan tea cookies are made with a chia or flax egg and are the perfect treat to have with hot tea or before bed.  The icing has blackberry and hibiscus flavors in it, making them decadent and fun to frost!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes
Servings: 16 Cookies

Ingredients 

  • ½ Cup coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2.5 tbsp water
  • Cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ Cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp almond milk

For the icing

  • 1 scoop of MegaFood Relax + Calm* Magnesium Powder Blackberry Hibiscus Oasis Powder 
  • Cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1-2 blackberries for color, optional

Instructions 

  • Make chia egg. Whisk water and chia together let it sit for 5 -10 minutes until it forms a gel. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, add lightly melted/room temp coconut oil and sugar together whisk together well to form a thick paste. Add in almond extract and chia egg, almond milk. Mix together. 
  • In another bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda with a whisk. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet. 
  • The cookie mix will be dry and crumbly. You will form 1 inch balls with your hands and place them on parchment paper. Lightly press down with the palm of your hand to form a cookie. Sides will be a little crinkled. Feel free to form them a little or leave them crinkled.
  • Place in the oven for about 12 minutes. Let cookies cool and harden before moving or icing. 

For the icing

  • In a medium sized bowl, mix with hand mixer, powdered sugar, almond milk, MegaFood Relax & Calm Blackberry Hibiscus Powder. Ingredients will form a thick, spreadable icing. You can add more milk or more sugar to change the texture of your icing. Carefully ice cookies and enjoy! 

Notes

To make the pretty design on the cookies, first dip them into the icing and use a toothpick to straighten your line for the half dip look. Then mash up one blackberry into the remaining icing (you may need to make another batch if you need) You can drizzle just a little bit of the purple colored icing onto the white icing to give it a more girly special look!

    These sound so fun. Going to make them later today but without the calm mix. They should still come out correct?

    These came together so quickly. Very good, buttery taste. I skipped the frosting, perfect with a cup of tea. 🙂
