Grain Free Coffee Cookies
Coffee. Coffee and Cookies. Is there anything better than dunking a nice cookie into your coffee? I think not!
I have vivid memories of dunking cookie after cookie into my mums coffee as a kid. I hated coffee back then, but something about her allowing me to dunk my cookie into her prized coffee, made me feel loved. And she let me do this even though half of my cookie would go soggy and drop into her coffee, leaving crumbs and bits to chew when she had the last few mouthfuls. Eating the last bit of your coffee certainly isn’t ideal. She really must have loved me.
Love truly can shine in different ways, can’t it.
Even now when I dunk my own cookie into my very own, grown up coffee my heart still swells at the memories. One day, I will have child, and I will love her/him enough to eat the remnants of my coffee too.
But until then, I decided to make this process more efficient, by removing the ‘dunking’ step, by merging the coffee WITH the cookie. I also adapted the recipe to make them grain free and fructose free! HOWZAT?!
This cookie, is a chewy cookie with a slightly soft centre. I found it hard not to eat all of them in one day, so you might want to lock the cookie jar!
Here’s to love and hoping that someone loves you enough to let them dunk your cookie into their coffee!
