I saw a recipe of espresso cookies on the net and followed it, but I added some ingredients and eliminated some. It worked fine so here’s our recipe for our espresso cookies.

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup muscovado sugar
  • 3 table spoons honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 140 grams ( ½ cup + 2 tablespoons) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup wheat flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons instant coffee
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Coffee beans
  1. Add the oil, sugar and honey in a large bowl and blend until smooth using a mixer.
  2. Then add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix well until well combined.
  3. In a small bowl add the dry ingredients (don’t include the coffee beans) and mix together.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to your first mix, blend until you get a sticky dough.
  5. Shape the dough properly so you’ll get round cookies, I used the bottom of a glass to flatten them
  6. Place them on a cookie tray with wax paper and press two coffee beans on top of each cookie
  7. Refrigerate the cookies for 30 minutes.
  8. Bake them for 9-12 minutes and after, let it cool for 5 minutes. NOW DIG IN!
