Choco-Latte Cookies (whole wheat) – Recipe

Choco-Latte Cookies (Choco-Latte Cookie recipe and instructions with video tutorial follow)- Warning – Choco-Latte cookies are not for kids! I suppose if you want to give them to your children, that’s up to you. My three year old had one and was running in circles around the house for about an hour though. Don’t get me wrong, she had a ball and was laughing and screaming and playing the whole time. But unless you are mentally prepared for this situation, I recommend only serving these to caffeine addicted adults, which I happen to be. Also, I did not sleep at all last night thanks to several cookie taste tests while developing this recipe so you may want to enjoy them early in the day, unless you’ve got a lot to do that night. What I’m saying is they definitely have caffeine. If you are a coffee lover like me, you will love these cookies, a-latte (they will likely call to you from the kitchen though)!

 

Ingredients

2 sticks butter ( I like plugra)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablesoon + 1 teaspoon instant espresso
1/4 cup milk (or plain yogurt)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (not pastry)
1 Tablespoon cocoa
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cup chocolate chips


Instructions
1. Allow your butter, eggs, and milk to come to room temperature – or at the very least, your butter.
2. Grease your pans – I use cooking spray- you can also butter and then flour them.
3. Pre-heat your oven to 375°F.
4. In a small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, Kosher salt, and baking soda – stir to combine.
5. In a large bowl, cream your butter, sugars, and espresso powder (you can also add your espresso powder into the dry ingredients instead). Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
6. Add in the milk and vanilla and mix to combine.
7. Add in the eggs and mix to combine. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
8. Add in the dry ingredients, 1/2 at a time (scrape the bowl between additions) and mix well.
9. Continue to mix for one minute to help develop the gluten (we want these to be chewy).
10. Stir in the chips by hand with a rubber spatula.
11. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
12. Bake your cookies at 375°F for about 10 minutes.

I hope you love these cookies as much as we do! Enjoy!
