Double Chocolate Mocha Cookies

Recently, I created a flickr group so that all of you can share photos of recipes that you make from  I know that some of you enjoy uploading photos to the comments section and I love seeing your shots of my concoctions.  So please, feel free to upload your pictures to the elana’s pantry flickr group.  Can’t wait to see ’em!

The vegan cookies above are pictured with my cashew milk and were quite a lot of fun to make.  Even more fun to eat.  Here’s my story.

I like to cook.  Let’s face it, I’m cooking all the time.  It’s an outlet for me.  Kinda like painting a wall.  I find the repetitive nature of baking especially soothing.  Combine the dry ingredients, mix into the wet, bake, cool, etc.  For me, it’s pretty much the same every time.

I’m not always focused on the outcome of my baking adventures, though I am usually satisfied.  Generally speaking though, it’s not often that I get pumped up about a dish I make and become emphatic.

Today however, is altogether different.  These cookies taste so good that I cannot stop eating them –they’re slightly addictive, so watch out!

These cookies are based on a recipe by my favorite food blogger, Heidi of 101Cookbooks.  Her recipe is called “Triple Chocolate Espresso Bean Cookies” and has candy coated espresso beans in it which sounds absolutely amazing!

I find her blog to be a constant source of inspiration.  Further, in this recipe, I really like her use of ground coffee in the cookies.

Yes, this recipe uses plain old ground coffee in it!

    • Michaeleen, thanks for your comment! I gave up rice and all other grains in 2001, have not used them since. If you experiment with the recipe I hope you’ll let us know if it works :-)

  1. These cookies are AMAZING!!! The Vegan cookies I can finally eat! My nephew’s girlfriend made them for me and I ate almost all 24!!!! Great with my rocket fuel coffee in the morning and a light bedtime snack….unfortunately they didn’t last too long! It’s on my list to make.

  2. After looking at the original recipe I started making these with a mix of Kimmie Candy’s Xpresso Rocks (chunks) and Xpresso Beans (chocolate-covered espresso beans) and they are so good! The baking changes the texture of the espresso beans to a light crunch and the “rocks” hold their shape like chocolate chips would.

  3. I asked a seventeen old what he wanted me to bake for him for his birthday. Chocolate, he replied.And this was the recipe I used. So, so, good. Other people want to taste them too. Looks like I will have to make a few more batches of cookies. A true chocolate treat.

  4. These are amazing. I’ve made them three times. This last time I forgot to include the chocolate chips and they were still addictive. I also swapped out the grapeseed oil for melted coconut oil, because that’s all I had. I couldn’t taste any coconut and the cookies were still incredible. Oh, and I used 1/2 almond meal and 1/2 almond flour, again because that’s all I had. A tad salty, but that’s practically a plus. Very forgiving recipe in my opinion!

  5. I made these using carob in place of both the cocoa and coffee (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) and eliminated the chocolate chunks. I’m on an elimination diet and can’t have chocolate or coffee among many other things. They were incredible! This is the first recipe I’ve baked on this diet that’s actually tasted good – and I’ve tried many. Thanks so much for providing recipes for all types of diets. You’re a lifesaver!!
