Easy coffee cookies recipe

Vegan, quick & easy

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love cookies. I am the biggest lover of coffee and I had the idea to add coffee into cookies after dunking a gingerbread man into my latte! Literally, that's how ideas pop into my head, haha! 

These cookies are deliciously crumbly, full of coffee flavour and ultra mouth-watering.
They are vegan and gluten-free, perfect as a sweet treat!
They're quick & easy to make and a batch can be made within no time. A must bake if you like coffee & cookies!

Preparation- 5 minutes
Baking time- 10-12 minutes
Makes- 8-10
Level- Easy

Ingredients for the cookies
-85g of vegan butter/margarine (I use Tomor)
-100g of golden caster sugar
-4 tablespoons of dairy-free milk (I use unsweetened almond)
-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-250g of self-raising flour (You can use gluten-free)
-1 teaspoon of espresso powder
-1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
-1 teaspoon of baking powder

Ingredients for the frosting
-Vegan buttercream

-1 & 1/2 teaspoons of espresso powder

To make the cookies
Step 1- Preheat your oven to 175 degrees c and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Step 2- In a mixing bowl or stand mixer, whisk the butter and sugar together until smooth.
Step 3- Add in the dairy-free milk and vanilla and combine.

Step 4- Add in the flour, espresso powder, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder and mix until a dough forms.
Step 5- Roll about 2 tablespoons (54g) of dough into balls, place onto the lined tray and press down with the palm of your hand to flatten slightly.
Repeat for all of the cookies.
Pop the cookies into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Step 7- Once baked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool. As they cool, they will crisp off.

To make the frosting (optional)

Step 1- Make your vegan buttercream. Get my recipe & instructions here.

Step 2- Add in the espresso to the buttercream and mix.

Step 3- Spread a half tablespoon amount of frosting onto each cookie and top with some coffee beans (optional).

Store in a sealed container and best enjoyed day of making.
