Ayurvedized vanilla crescents


Healthy cookies at Christmas time!

We can't imagine Christmas without vanilla crescents, so we created a vanilla crescent recipe with Ayurvedic ingredients. In the Ayurvedic diet, we don't avoid certain foods, but we make sure that we can digest them well with a few tips. You can find out more about this below.


  • 250g wholemeal spelled flour

  • 70g whole cane sugar

  • 100g ground almonds

  • 140g ghee cold

  • 2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon powder

  • ½ tsp cardamom powder

  • 1 pinch of clove powder

  • Some Sharkara (alternatively whole cane sugar). Sharkara, the royal sugar, is made from sugar cane and has special qualities. It is not chemically treated and has a neutral effect.


  1. Knead the flour, sugar, almonds and ghee like a shortcrust pastry and sprinkle in the spices. Store the dough in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Then roll a dough sausage with a diameter of one centimeter. Cut off about five centimeters of it and bend it into a croissant.

  2. Bake at 180°C on top and bottom heat for about ten minutes until golden brown.

  3. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture onto the warm croissants and let them cool completely so that they don't break. Store refrigerated.

My dosha tip:

Suitable for all doshas in small quantities. Those with Kapha constitutions should make sure not to eat the cookies as a snack, but rather directly with the main meal. A sweet snack triggers blood sugar fluctuations, which lead to cravings and weight gain and disrupt metabolic processes.
