Mix the chia seeds with the plant milk and leave to soak for 30 minutes.
Coarsely grind the oat flakes in a blender and mix in a bowl with the ground hazelnuts or almonds as well as baking powder, gingerbread spice, salt and coconut blossom sugar.
Add the soaked chia seeds, orange zest and coconut oil. Knead the ingredients into a dough with your hands. Shape into flat cookies and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180 °C top / bottom heat (160 °C convection oven) for about 12 minutes. Then leave to cool completely.
Melt the cooking chocolate in a bain-marie and dilute with coconut oil. Dip half of the cookies into the chocolate. Decorate with sugar pearls if desired and leave to dry.
