Ingredients

Detail measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here’s what you need in details

All Purpose Flour : I am using certified gluten free all purpose flour. You can use regular flour, oat flour or almond flour mix as well.

Coffee Powder : It is the star ingredient. You can use ready to use instant coffee powder or espresso powder. I like dark espresso powder for rich taste.

Cocoa Powder : Brings decadent chocolaty taste to these cookies. Use dark cocoa or cacao powder if you prefer slightly bitter taste.

Sweetener : brown sugar is preferred but you can choose any granular sugar. Coconut palm sugar also works well.

Other Ingredients : Use Almond Milk ( or any other milk including plant based milk like soy milk, oats milk) to make the coffee mix. Baking Powder to make coffee cookies light and flakey. Vegan butter or coconut oil to make cookies buttery soft. Pinch of salt brings all the flavors together. Cornstarch binds all the ingredients together.

Instructions

Preheat the oven at 350 ° Fahrenheit.

In a bowl add warm almond milk. Mix in espresso powder. Make sure there are no lumps. Let it cool down to room temperature.

Meanwhile, use a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to beat the vegan butter or coconut oil for 1 minute. It should become smooth and creamy.

Add sugar and beat further on high speed for 2-3 minutes until fluffy and light.

Add the almond milk coffee in butter mix. Beat on high until it is all fully combined, about 1 minute.

Add 1 cup of the flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt to the wet mixture. Mix on low speed, until just combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

Add the rest of the cup of the flour and continue to mix on low until just combined. Do NOT over mix.

Scoop all of the dough out of the bowl on a clean working surface. Gently roll the dough to make a smooth round.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop, drop the dough on the baking sheet. Keep them 2″ apart.

Gently press the dough with the back of a cookie press, a small lid or other round object. This gives a nice crinkle effect.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, in the middle rack of the oven. The cookies do not expand much. They look slightly dry on top and around the edges.

Remove from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes on the counter. Then transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely before eating.

Note : When you remove the cookie baking sheet from the oven, cookies will appear underdone. They will firm up considerably as they cool down. So do NOT over bake them.

Storage

The Chocolate Mocha Cookies will stay soft for about 5 days at room temperature. Store in an airtight container away from direct sunlight and other heat sources.

You can add a piece of bread to the cookie box and store them. It helps keep the cookies soft and moist and prevents dryness. Remember to change the piece of bread every other day.
