Chocolate Coffee Cookies

These chocolate coffee cookies are so good! Who needs to dip cookies into coffee, when you can just have the coffee in your cookies? That’s exactly what I was thinking when I created this recipe!

These chocolate coffee cookies are so nostalgic for me. I also think I should add in the fact that these are accidentally nostalgic. When I was a kid my mom and I use to go to Walgreens a lot and my favorite treats to buy while there were, skittles, and this special kind of chocolate ice cream that for some reason was called “Dutch Chocolate”.

Chocolate Coffee Cookies

Mind you I grew up in Philly, Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has a huge Dutch Amish community so, maybe that’s where the name came from. I had been wondering for ever, what the Dutch had to do with that ice cream and just as I’m typing this blog, I came up with that possible idea! Yes reader, I do have ADD!

Anyway, that Dutch chocolate ice cream was so yummy and at some point they just stopped selling it. To my pleasant surprise I was playing around with these chocolate coffee cookies and they tasted exactly like that chocolate ice cream I remember eating as a kid from Walgreens. What are the odds 😀

Main Ingredients

The stars that collectively make this recipe shine!

•Oat Flour You can make these using all purpose flour as well if you like but I was just trying something different and it turned out nicely. For oat flour, simply blend up some oats in a food processor or blender until they become a powder that resembles

•Cocoa Powder You can make chocolate cookies without cocoa powder. Well, at least not good chocolate cookies. So, grab that cocoa powder and get to it!

•Instant Coffee In order to make these yummy chocolate cookies taste like coffee, we are using Instant coffee grounds. Why instant you ask? I’ve come to notice that instant always works best for baked goods, because it is made to release that coffee flavor faster then regular coffee.

•Chocolate Chips The chocolate chips can be folded into the cookies themselves or you can just add a few to the top of each cookie the way I like to do. I like to keep the simple inner texture of these recipes as is!
