Dark Chocolate Espresso Cookies

Espresso + dark chocolate = LOVE at our house and these delicious cookies are a new favorite for sure! The gooey, chewy cookies are based on my favorite gluten free & vegan brownie recipe from Babycakes NYC so they're rich, fudgey & intensely chocolate. Add in an espresso kick and you've got a cookie that's not for the faint of heart. Serious dessert lovers only! 


  • 1 cup garbanzo flour 
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 2 TBSP tapioca starch (or arrowroot)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP vanilla (or vanilla powder)
  • 3 TBSP coffee (or water)
  • 2 TBSP instant espresso 
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Stir espresso powder into coffee for a stronger flavor (or water if you prefer a more subtle coffee flavor) and set aside. 
  • Whisk together all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Add oil, applesauce & espresso liquid and mix until combined. 
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Drop by tsp onto cookie sheet & bake for 8-10 minutes.

    Being a mother of a new born, And taking care of 4 younger siblings, is a drain on me. My morning starts at 6 a.m and usually ends at 11 p.m. So, as You must know, I'm constantly tired. I feel as if I can barely find time to sleep, even while I'm sleeping. So, I needed something That would brighten my day and wake Me up. I love chocolate! And, I love to bake. Coffee wasn't doing much for me, and I couldn't afford energy drinks. These cookies are everything I look forward to, And they were exactly what I was looking for. I hope You love then as much as I do.
