I’ve joined a bunch of my gluten-free food blogger friends for a Virtual Gluten-free Cookie Exchange for the holidays. We are also each doing our own giveaway, so you have lots of chances to win a holiday present for yourself. I’m giving away a prize pack of goodies from Rodelle (which they very generously are donating) , some of which I used when baking this recipe.

I don’t know about you, but cookies are one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I consider myself a gluten-free cookie expert, having written 2 cookbooks all about cookies. With that said, I am still always up for trying something new.

Have you seen coffee flour? When I saw some at Trader Joe’s I knew I had to give it a try. Before you get nervous about a crazy cookie buzz, coffee flour actually doesn’t have any more caffeine than dark chocolate. What it does have is extra fiber, and potassium and iron.

I love, and I mean LOVE, my flourless chocolate cookie recipe. I’ve made almost a dozen variations on it over the years, it is always a go-to recipe. I wanted to experiment with coffee flour, and wanted to start with a recipe that is tried and true. I  made a few other adjustments to the cookie recipe to use honey instead of sugar, and to add just a hint of orange zest. The flavors all meld together into a sweet, dark chocolate coffee flour cookies with a deep, complex flavor. To me, it tastes like the holidays.

Coffee Flour also has a very unique taste. Did you try Starbucks Cascara Latte earlier this year? It was sweetened and flavored with the fruit that surrounds the coffee bean, which has a very subtle fruity and spicy flavor. It reminds me of cherries and oranges. Coffee Flour is made from the coffee fruit, too. It is dried and finely ground, and then makes a great addition to baked goods. I loved the way the flavors played with cocoa powder and orange zest in these coffee flour cookies.

I want to spend just a second telling you about the cocoa powder I used in the recipe before I turn you loose in your kitchen. I’m an ambasador for Rodelle because I fell in love with their cocoa powder and vanilla extracts. Their cocoa powder it dutch processed, making it very chocolatey and less acidic, meaning whatever you use it for has a great dark chocolate taste. I also used Rodelle’s Vanilla in this recipe, to help round out the flavors of the orange, chocolate, and coffee flour in these cookies. Scroll past the recipe to enter the giveaway!

Coffee Flour Cookies
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 1½ dozen
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter, softened (I used dairy-free butter, like Smart Balance, Earth Balance, or Melt.)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup Rodelle Gourmet Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup coffee flour
  • 1 teaspoon Rodelle Gourmet Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ cup chocolate chunks/chips
  • zest from half an orange
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Cream together the butter, honey, and egg.
  3. Mix-in the baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and coffee flour and mix until combined.
  4. Next, add the vanilla extract, orange zest, and chocolate chunks and mix until evenly distributed.
  5. Scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets about 3 inches apart using a 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They will not "look" done, and will still be very soft but will lose their doughy shine.
  7. After 2-3 minutes remove the cookies to a cooling rack to prevent them from overcooking.
Notes
If you LOVE the taste of coffee flour, try adding more to the cookie dough. Increase the coffee flour to ½ cup, and decrease the cocoa powder to ½ cup.

    This is intriguing! could you tell me if coffee flour has many carbs as I am doing a veto diet for health reasons, thanks!

      Hi Jill,

      My bag says that each tablespoon has 7 grams of carbs, and 6 grams of fiber, making each tablespoon 1 gram of net carbs.
      Best of luck with Keto. I’ve done Keto several times and have really liked it.

    These cookies have been a big hit for me, even with folks who normally eat desserts that contain gluten. Thanks!
