Hazelnuts chocolate espresso cookies

Delicious and crumbly cookies made with hazelnut flour. Flavoured with chocolate and espresso powder. Drizzled with white chocolate and espresso. These hazelnuts chocolate espresso cookies are so scrumptious and lovely. They are easy to make and taste divine. On top of that, they are gluten-free! 

These cookies are made entirely with hazelnut flour. Why? Because, I was curious if I can make cookies using only hazelnut flour and if cookies like this can be actually edible. I am glad that this experiment worked out and can share this new exciting recipe with you!


How to make hazelnuts chocolate espresso cookies?

These cookies are so simple to make, you just mix all the ingredients together, shape the cookie dough in a log, leave it in the fridge for few hours or overnight. Then you slice the cookie dough and you bake it. BOOM! Your delicious cookies are ready!

Please read the below recipe carefully, as there are important information included, like this one, about leaving the space between cookies on a baking tin – these cookies will spread a lot. I want to bring this to your attention as nobody likes a weird looking cookies. Or, does it not matter? Cookie monsters, I am asking you???!!!


What do the cookies taste like?

The consistency of these cookies is a little bit different. They are quite chewy as the are made of hazelnuts. They are soft and a little bit crumbly.

The flavour is nutty and buttery with a quite distinct coffee flavour. I used quite a lot of espresso powder in this recipe because in our house we are coffee addicts and we think that you can never have too much coffee. The sweetness also comes from milk and dark chocolate chips that work wonderfully with the rest of the ingredients.

C’mon! Is there any better combo than chocolate, hazelnut and coffee?? Just look at these cookies, they scream, EAT ME!


Hazelnuts chocolate espresso cookies with white chocolate espresso drizzle are great for breakfast or as a snack. Here I have to warn you, you will not end up having one cookie, it is just not possible.
