Mocha Monkey Breakfast Cookies

If you love coffee flavoured sweet things, you will love these cookies! Jenn and I wanted to make breakfast cookies but not your usual dried fruit and nut cookies that you see frequently in coffee shops and on the web. We wanted something fun and different, enter the Mocha Monkey! Coffee, chocolate, banana, almond, and oat deliciousness! We didn't want them too sweet, there's only 3 tbsp honey plus a little stevia, which makes them perfect for breakfast!

These came out crispy on the outside and chewy and soft on the inside. If you like a crispier cookie, just flatten out before baking.

1/4 cup coconut oil
1 egg
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp instate coffee
1/4 cup almond milk
3/4 cup spelt flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp honey
1/2 cup almonds
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup banana chips crumbled 
Stevia to taste (we added about 1/4 tsp)

Combine dry ingredients including instant coffee, mix eggs and almond milk. Combine wet into dry, add coconut oil, and almonds, chocolate chips and banana chips. Bake for 15-16 minutes at 350F.

These were honestly so so good! I always underestimate coffee flavour in baked goods and desserts. If you haven't tried coffee in cookies definitely give these a go! We ate the whole plate in less than an hour.
