Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

There isn’t anything better than freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. It’s one of my top three favorite things in the entire world.

Passing around a plate of cookies and fighting over the last one while cuddling over a good movie is my happy place. It reminds me that these little moments are what make life amazing.

I don’t know anyone who could turn down good cookie. And these coffee chocolate chip cookies are possibly one of the best.

Coffee and chocolate are perfect together. They are one of those power couples in the flavor world.

They bring out the best in each other and build each other up. Coffee chocolate chip cookies are the perfect example of this.

Nothing pairs better than the buttery crisp edges and the soft chewiness of a chocolate chip cookie than the smooth, bold flavor of coffee which blooms with each bite of chocolate chip in each cookie.

If you wanted to go a bit more indulgent with these coffee chocolate chip cookies, you can also add in chopped bits of chocolate covered espresso beans.

You could also try replacing some or all of the chocolate chips with mocha chips, which you can find in many baking supply stores, or even just use chopped chocolate instead of chips so the chocolate gets gooey and almost melts right into the cookie dough.

Regardless of any adjustments, enjoy with a super tall glass of ice cold milk. Trust me on that one. There’s nothing more satisfying.

Coffee chocolate chip cookies are bound to be your new favorite dessert. Soft and chewy inside and wonderfully buttery and crisp around the edges with the warm, comforting notes of coffee permeating each bite – resistance is futile.

  • 2.5 All-Purpose Flour
  • 0.5 Salt
  • 1 Baking Soda
  • 1 Cornstarch
  • 0.66 Granulated Sugar
  • 0.5 Brown Sugar
  • 3 Instant Espresso Powder or instant coffee
  • 0.75 Unsalted Butter room temperature
  • 2 Egg
  • 1.5 Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1.5 Dark Chocolate Chips


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cornstarch until well-combined. Set aside.
  • In a mixer, add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, instant espresso, and unsalted butter. Beat until light and fluffy – about 5 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla and beat until it is well combined and fluffy – about another 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the four and mix until just combined and there are no streaks of flour. Fold in the chocolate chips until they are evenly dispersed.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Portion out balls of dough that are about 2 tablespoons big and place on the baking sheets at least an inch and a half apart.
  • Bake each baking sheet one at a time for 8 – 10 minutes, or until the edges are a golden brown and the middles are puffy and just set. They will look slightly underdone, and that is okay. Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheet for another minute.
  • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
