HAPPY SUNDAY, friends! It’s Linley, here.
There is nothing quite like starting the week off with something SWEET. We are still at the river house with friends and it has snowed like 6-inches! Cole and I really needed to get out of the house. Mostly Cole because you GUYS..Cole broke his leg! I forgot to mention that in my Nicaragua travel post from this weekend! Long story short is that Cole broke his leg THREE days before I left for Nicaragua for 13 days. How you ask?
Cole was carrying groceries into our house on an icy Saturday morning after work. He simply stepped off a snow bank, slipped on the ice and snapped his damn leg in half. Let me just say that Cole is a very sturdy man, so it still seems bonkers to me that something like this could happen. I met him and my roommate at the hospital and Cole seemed totally fine–> until they removed his boot and his foot flopped out of his jeans like it was hanging on a piece of rope (i know..the visual..ew.) We found out soon after that, that he had snapped his tibia, fibula, and fractured his ankle. All because the man was in a hurry to make breakfast tacos.
We spent three days in the hospital and headed home. I left the next day for Nicaragua, it was such a crazy weekend. The poor guy can’t walk on his foot for SIX WEEKS. It is the first time one of us has had something like this happen, so we are taking it one day at a time. Let me tell you, Cole is one of the most positive humans I know. He is definitely taking his leg break a heck of a lot better than I am (like, big time). As a caretaker and a fixer it’s so freakin’ hard to have absolutely no way to fix something. SO, those of you that have been where we are, holler at your girl. We are taking field trips, but I’m also trying not to be such a control freak. #learning
Now. These cookies.
Are these flourless mocha chocolate cookies a dessert? YES. A snack? YES. Breakfast? HECK YES. These cookies can be whatever you want them to be. Lee and I are huge cookies and coffee people. So why not combine the two?
These Flourless Mocha Chocolate Cookies are
- packed with chocolate
- naturally sweetened with coconut sugar
- perfect for dessert-prep for the week
I can’t deny that my favorite part is the sea salt on the top! DO NOT forget the sea salt. It just gives these cookies the most delicious sweet + savory feel. Recently, I have really loved making a batch of cookies and tossing them in the freezer. I feel like the flavor of the cookies gets frozen in time. So, this week your job is to make a batch of these cookies and enjoy one fresh out of the oven, but then pop them in the freezer and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
Flourless Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup all-natural almond butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon ground instant coffee
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
- Use a table scoop to scoop out cookies and roll them into a ball. Use your palm to slightly flatten and then add more chocolate chips on top if desired and a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt.
- Bake cookies at 350ºF for 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and enjoy!
yummmmmmm. thats it. im kind of obsessing with this website
These just didn’t work for me. I’ll put them in the freeze for those GOTTA HAVE SOME CHOCOLATE moments, but I won’t make them again.
Instant coffee….hmmm none in the house. Do you think non-instant coffee would work just as well. It is just for taste right?
How beautiful it is when we enjoy the chill days with these cookies and a hot coffee. I’d like to add some cashew nuts to make it more flavoured xD
Btw, I hope your poor guy doing well 🙂
Hey Natalie! Yes, cookies and hot coffee is the best on a chilly day! Love the cashew addition, as well. Cole is doing a bit better, THANK YOU!
I have a batch of these in the oven right now. They look really good and smell AMAZING!!! Can’t wait to try them!
These cookies were awesome! I didn’t have almond butter, but I had Mixed Nut Butter from TJ’s (pretty much every nut you can think of) and I used regular coffee grounds because I didn’t have instant. I also had Special Dark cocoa powder, so my cookies were almost black and glossy looking (the nut butter was pretty runny). I chopped up some dark chocolate instead of chocolate chips. They were so unbelievably good. My husband ate almost the whole batch in one sitting. Also, they taste amazing with coffee in the morning. Thanks for another great recipe!
Shannon! This message made my day! So glad you enjoyed the cookies and made due with what you had at home. I’m sure they were delicious!
Pretty much have had chocolate EVERY single day this month. NO SHAME WHATSOEVER! Definitely need to make myself some double chocolate chip cookies like these beauties before the month is over!
YES. Chocolate is our favorite too!!!
These look fantastic!! Wondering if I could sub flax egg or aquafaba to make them vegan? Would appreciate any feedback.
Hi Lisa! You can definitely try a flax egg, they won’t be as fluffy! However, we haven’t tried a flax egg yet! If you try them, let us know how it turns out!
Hi. Looks so yummy. I don’t digest almond butter. Thinking about cahew butter or sunflower seed butter as a substitute.
Cashew butter would be delicious too! Let us know how they turn out!
These are really good! I’ve tried a few different flourless/keto recipes and this one exceeds all of them. Instead of coconut sugar I used I Xylitol.
So I found 10 minutes left my cookies a little chewy, sort of like a brownie. I like it but I’m also going to go back and put them in a little bit longer. Thank you for the great recipe!
So glad you liked them and made some changes that worked better for you!
These are my kind of cookies for sure!
Yes! Coffee + Chocolate = LIFE!
These look and sound good, and I know it’s cold in MN, but 253 calories and 16 grams of fat per cookie is a lot. I may try then anyway. Thanks!
