The best yoga cookies in the world
My daughter's home for the summer from university. It’s the beginning of July but wet and cold today in the north west of England so the perfect time for us to turn on the radio, warm the oven and get mixing.
I first discovered these delicious yoga cookies when I lived in London and attended classes at a local yoga centre. They usually had a fresh batch for sale for students to enjoy after class and I always picked up one to eat on the tube home. They’re very wholesome but delicious too and easy to make.
I have in the past made these cookies without all of the spices but they taste so much better with the added kick and warmth of the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Please note that the biscuits contain peanuts so please omit if this is a concern.
