Blending chocolate and coffee to create a decadent mocha flavor is a time-tested culinary trick that even the best bakers use. The coffee brings out even more chocolate flavor, which results in a depth and richness that you won’t find in many other keto chocolate chip cookie recipes. 

The real secret to this mocha cookie recipe is two-fold: First, the coffee flavor comes from rich, delicious Perfect Keto instant coffee granules. 

Second, these mocha cookies replace all-purpose flour or any grain-based flour mixture with low-carb almond flour. Perfect for a treat on your healthy keto diet.

Have a cookie or two for dessert, as a high-protein, low-sugar snack in the middle of your day, or pair with some low-carb vanilla ice cream for a really special treat.

These mocha chocolate chip cookies are:

  • Chocolatey
  • Rich
  • Satisfying
  • Delicious

3 Health Benefits of These Mocha Chip Cookies

#1: Boosts Mental Performance

Every good cookie recipe has a secret ingredient, and these guys are no exception. The addition of coffee grounds and brewed espresso not only add a mocha flavor but double as a little pick-me-up. 

It should come as no surprise that coffee can help boost your energy levels. Mid-afternoon dip? Skip the coffee and treat yourself to one of these mocha chip cookies. 

By stimulating your central nervous system, the caffeine in coffee increases energy metabolism throughout your brain. It also enhances learning, memory, and performance by acting on your arousal and vigilance centers[*].

Although these cookies don’t contain as much caffeine as a full cup of coffee would, you may still feel the benefits with a cookie or two. 

#2: Supports Heart Health

Almonds are a fantastic source of vitamin E, a potent fat-soluble vitamin and antioxidant. In fact, one cup of almonds contains 36 mg of vitamin E, that’s over 200% of your daily needs[*].

These delicious cookies not only contain almond flour, but they also contain almond butter — which means you get a double hit.

Vitamin E supports your body in myriad ways. As a fat-soluble antioxidant, it can protect the outer membrane of your cells from reactive oxygen species (ROS). It also provides antioxidant support to your LDL cholesterol[*].

This is incredibly important because once LDL is oxidized, it can become a contributor to heart disease

Vitamin E may also play a vital role in the prevention of blood clots. One study found that supplementation with vitamin E reduced the risk for embolisms, a clot that causes blockage inside your blood vessels[*].

#3: Fights Fat

Finding alternatives to your favorite high-carb treats is essential if you want to lose some weight. Cravings for sweets will come, and that’s no big deal if you know how to tame them. 

And these cookies are the perfect antidote with only one net carb, with zero grams of sugar. 

But the real show-stopper with this recipe is the monk fruit. Instead of loading up your recipe with sugar that’ll go straight to your fat cells, you’re adding in a sweetener that may actually fight fat. 

Research shows that mogrol, a compound found in monk fruit, can inhibit the growth of fat cells. In a lab study, mogrol was able to halt the growth of fat cells both at the initial stages and at the late stages of their growing process[*].

Your fat cells grow by increasing the number of fatty acids that they store, if they can’t store more fat, your fat stores simply can’t grow.
