Low Carb Espresso Cookies

I am usually a big fan of baking with sweeteners, like sugary syrup or sugar, because the sweetness comes from the sweetness of the fruit or vegetables. But on occasion, I like to try something a little more exotic. This recipe has a touch of maple syrup in the dough, so it’s not low carb, but the people who are on low carb will think it’s great.

These low carb chocolate espresso cookies are a great snack and are really easy to make. They are also really quick and easy to make. They take less than 5 minutes to make and you only need 8 ingredients. You probably already have all of them in your kitchen. They are gluten free, low carb, and sugar free. You can serve them for any occasion.

If you’re a fan of the Starbucks Caffe Misto, chances are you’ve been eyeing their low-carb espresso cookies. The problem is, they’re not low-carb and don’t taste as good as the original either. So, I made my own, low-carb espresso cookie version that tastes just like the original.

With these Espresso Cookies with Low Carbs, Matt’s favorite low-carb dessert is back on the menu! He claims it tastes exactly like tiramisu but without the effort. That sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? We’ve even made the right dip to go with it, so you can serve it at parties and wow your guests!

Is it necessary for me to use espresso grounds?

You don’t need to use them, in a nutshell. Answer I prefer to give: It makes a huge difference if you do, and we strongly advise you to do so! The stronger the flavor of the cookie, the darker the roast. If you’re concerned about the caffeine concentration, don’t be; it’ll be quite low – equivalent to what you’d find in chocolate. If you don’t have espresso on hand, coffee will suffice in this recipe. Let us know how it goes if you use coffee!
