I love these tasty cookies because they are simple to make and packed full of flavor. The cookies are sweetened with some coconut sugar. The flours used are tapioca and coconut flour, so they are naturally gluten-free.

instant espresso and other ingredients

To begin, you’ll preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

In a small mixing bowl, you’ll combine coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking cocoa, instant espresso, baking soda and salt.

coconut sugar

In your mixing bowl, you’ll beat together butter and coconut sugar until it is fluffy. I do this with my electric mixer.

Add in one egg, along with the yolk of a second egg. Again, beat these until they are nice and fluffy.

Add in your dry ingredients and mix until nice and smooth. Scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula to make sure everything is combined well.

Stir in some chocolate chips. The brand that I used are Lily’s dark chocolate chips, which are sweetened with stevia.

Scoop the cookie dough by rounded teaspoons onto your prepared baking sheet. I use a scoop so that the cookies are all the same size, but you can use a spoon if you prefer.

Bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes.

Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

When I make these, I use two baking sheets so that the second pan can go straight into the oven as soon as the first one comes out.
