Chocolate and espresso. The ultimate combo to start my day. To be quite honest, part of my morning ritual is to make myself a cup of coffee and enjoy it with a slice/piece of whatever homemade dessert I have on hand. Most likely that dessert has some form of chocolate in it…what can I say? I have a major chocolate tooth.

I’m sure many of you are in the same boat as me…ya know the chocolate and coffee obsession? Well these cookies will surely satisfy your cravings. They are perfectly soft, chewy, moist, and will simply melt in your mouth. Yes, they have caffeine in it, but how could you resist downing one of these in the late evening?

They are also vegan, gluten-free, and healthier than your average cookie.

Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal or sub chia seed meal
  • 2 tbsp water
  • cup softened coconut oil*
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp molasses or sub brown rice syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp instant espresso powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (trust me, this higher temperature makes a difference). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. To a small bowl, whisk together flax seed meal and water. Set aside for 5 min.

  2. In a large mixing bowl using a handheld mixer, cream together softened coconut oil, flax egg, coconut sugar, milk, molasses, and vanilla until creamy. Add flours, cocoa powder, instant espresso powder, baking soda and powder, and salt. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, combine mixture until a soft dough forms. Fold in chocolate chunks.

  3. Use a small cookie scoop to evenly portion dough on to the baking sheet. Slightly press down each cookie with the palm of your hands. Bake for 12-15 min. until slightly firm to touch. Let cool for 10 min. before transferring to a wire cooling rack (important!).

Recipe Notes

*To achieve the best consistency for softened coconut oil in this recipe, let your coconut oil sit at room temp for about an hour. Depending on you surrounding temp you may need to microwave it for 10-15 sec. You just don’t want it to melt.
