Can you guys believe Christmas is in just a few days? I have a few more days of work until my holiday begins but my tree is up and little apartment extra cozy, I just love this time of year, don’t you?
If you’re still thinking of gifts for coffee-loving friends, these yummy Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies packed up with my homemade Vanilla Oat Vegan Coffee Creamer and a package of Lavazza would make just about the perfect solution.
Plus they could most definitely all be enjoyed Christmas morning as presents are unwrapped. Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies and Lavazza coffee pre-Christmas morning breakfast works for me, how about you?
These cookies are infused with a subtle coffee-flavour thanks to the Lavazza Gran Selezione Dark Roast that gets added right into the cookie dough. And obviously coffee and chocolate are a most perfect pairing, so chocolate chips just had to go in! A chopped dark chocolate bar would also work beautifully.
Since these babies are caffeinated, you’ll get a nice, little coffee pick-me-up along with your dessert. I’d recommend keeping these ones away from the kiddos though unless you want a couple of hopped-up monkeys running around.
If you missed the Vanilla Oat Vegan Coffee Creamer from the last Running on Real Food Lavazza feature, you can get the recipe here. Make up a batch and add it too a cute little jar, then gift it up in a basket with a package of Lavazza and a some cookies and you’re all set with a lovely, thoughtful gift for a coffee-loving friend.
I made this recipe with Lavazza Gran Selezione Dark Roast. It comes from Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee farms and has an intense flavour with chocolate undertones and a full-bodied taste. Ummm, yum. So if you need me over the holidays, I’ll be here, drinking all the Lavazza and eating all the cookies.Print
