Coffee Cookies

Super Chewy, no-chill coffee cookies with double the chocolate!!

These Coffee Cookies are made with instant espresso powder and you know what that means… you do right? Coffee in baking automatically means it’s an appropriate breakfast choice. *The opinions expressed on this site are my own.


These deliciously chewy and easy to make cookies have a rich coffee flavor and are packed with dark chocolate chunks and creamy white chocolate chips. It’s almost like your favorite mocha latte in cookie form.

Cookie season is upon us friends, so we might as well start the marathon that is baking season with cookies that give us some get up and go. Eat a couple of these with your morning cup and I’m pretty sure you’ll be an energetic baking machine all day.


Anything special you need to know?

I always to my very best to make my cookie recipes no-chill. Which means they lose their temper easily.

That’s not true.

It means you don’t have to wait hours or (gasp) days to enjoy your cookies. I like to satisfy the craving when the craving strikes, so chilling just doesn’t work for me. Check out some of my other no-chill cookie recipes:

Coffee Cookie FAQs

Why should I add milk powder to my cookies?

It’s like baking MSG. Read about it here.

Do coffee cookies have caffeine?

Yes and that’s probably why I like them. Feel free to substitute decaf coffee if low-test is your style.

How do you add coffee to cookies?

I think the best way is instant espresso. Instant coffee would be my next choice along with finely ground espresso beans. Brewed coffee is tough to work with in cookies because of the added liquid, so I reserve that for cakes.
