 Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} July 26, 2016 Print Friendly Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} So tell me, how was your weekend? Where did you go? What did you do? Who did you see? Did you get/do/go/see/eat anything fun? Tell me, tell me details please?! Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} Me?! Oh. My. Word . . . You guys, What a weekend! On Saturday we had our little lady’s 7th birthday celebration! I still can’t believe I have a 7 year old?! Seriously how?! I also can’t believe how loud a small group of teeny, tiny, super sweet looking 7 year old girls can be?! Seriously, wow! Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} Our girl had the best time, she said it was everything she hoped it would be, and more and even went as far as to declare that it was the “best birthday ever” so exhausted (and deaf) as I may be, sweet comments like that make it all worth it. Now, I don’t know about you but after all that fun I could really do with a cookie (or 2) and some quiet time. Care to join me? You guys, these espresso choc chip cookies are just what the doctor ordered! Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} They are subtly sweet, deliciously buttery, seriously chocolatey, stuffed with choc chips and have a divine little hum of espresso! These cookies are seriously tasty and I know you are going to just love, love, love them! A healthier twist on a dark and delicious, double chocolate cookie that comes together in 1 bowl in less than 20 minutes and also delivers a sneaky hit of caffeine?! I mean seriously what’s not to love?! Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} Chocolate + cookies + coffee = happiness. Seriously though, who doesn’t love a good cookie?! And let me tell you, these cookies are the goods! Not only are they insanely, and I mean INSANELY, delicious but, they also happen to be super quick and easy to prepare. Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} Made with no refined flours or sugars using just a handful of ingredients that I bet you have on hand already and they come together in one bowl and are ready in less than 20 minutes! They also happen to be gluten free, grain free and paleo friendly but you guys . . . did I mention the fact that they are insanely delicious!? Because they really, truly are! Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} Fresh from the oven your cookies will have this perfectly light and deliciously crisp, crunchy exterior. Then, once you bite through that crispy outer shell, you get this subtly sweet, deliciously buttery, melt in the mouth, choc chip studded, intensely chocolatey, fudgey center that is nothing short of divine. In the days that follow your cookies will lose some of that fresh baked crispness but they still taste all kinds of amazing. I love the way the combination of coconut and almond flour produces these hearty yet light cookies and I think we can all agree that chocolate and coffee just makes everything better. Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} I really like the way that the coconut flour helps keep your cookies light and tender while at the same times adding a touch of subtle sweetness. The sweetness of the coconut flour is balanced out so perfectly by the slightly buttery, nutty flavour of the almond flour – it really is a match made in heaven! Which is exactly what these cookies taste like. A little slice of heaven. Decadent and rich chocolate cookies that are choc full of choc chips and have a divine little hum of espresso ♥♥♥ Espresso Choc Chip Cookies {Gluten Free, Grain Free & Paleo Friendly} Yep that pretty much sounds like heaven to me! Note – If you’re not a coffee addict lover like me clearly we can not longer be friends then feel free to just omit the espresso and make yourself some chocolate choc chip cookies instead 😉 So yep . . . cookies . . . I made some, and I really think you should too. They are super quick and easy to prepare – crisp and crunchy on the outside, with a slightly fudgey, intensely chocolaty, brownie like centre, stuffed with choc chips and have a divine little hum of espresso.

    Wow!!! I have a new favorite cookie!!! These are amazing. I think it’s adorable that you say how long cookies can be frozen. We may eat them all before they even cool. I will triple or quadruple the recipe next time. Now that is motivating math practice for the kids.
