chocolate walnut mocha cookies

The perfect treat to share with friends for Solstice! Deep dark puddles of chocolate with a hint of espresso and walnut bits, which should keep you all going well into the bright night ahead.

I used white organic flour for these… which I almost never do, I was just to lazy to dig out a fresh sack of spelt flour. These cookies were made with coconut oil and fresh eggs, but no dairy products. certainly you could use spelt flour no problem in this oh-so-deep chocolately recipe.

The batter is totally unlike a traditional cookie batter, it’s wet and more like a brownie, and in fact the cookies them self taste a whole lot like a brownie, but with none of the cake texture. I can’t think what would make these better… they are perfect as is.

In a double boiler melt:

1/2 cup coconut oil

300 g dark good quality chocolate

once melted set aside to cool a little.

In a large bowl mix together:

3 large fresh eggs (at room temperature)

1 cup of your favorite dark sugar

2 tsp vanilla

beat until thickened

then add

1 cup sifted flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp espresso powder

a pinch of fine sea salt

Gently combine, wet, dry and the melted chocolate together, then add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped walnuts.

Portion and bake cookies on a parchment lined pan at 350 for 10 minutes, cool, share  and enjoy.

  1. Looks absolutely delicious! I would so love to try some. I’ll bet it tastes incredible.

    • Eating one right now, in fact and it is divine with a splash of red wine! And i think I am possibly the worlds biggest cookie snob…having had two cookie shops i know a good cookie, and even most of those I don’t really enjoy. But these are really nice! Certainly worth trying!
