Morning Buzz Chocolate Chip Cookies

On a white counter sits a Morning Buzz Cookie with a bite taken out.

These cookies are the perfect mom-only cookies. They are chewy, spiked with coffee grounds giving you that afternoon pick me up, AND best of all they freeze perfectly so you can pop one in the oven while you put your little one down for a nap and have a hot gooey cookie.



8 tablespoons softened butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

1 &1/3 cup all-purpose flour (see notes)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon coffee grounds  

1 cup chocolate chip cookies


  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 
  2. In a standard mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream butter and sugars on high for 2 minutes, scrape down the bowl. Slowly add egg and vanilla until incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients, scrape down the bowl one last time. 
  4. Add chocolate chips and coffee grounds. 
  5. Using a 2″ scoop, scoop dough into rounds. Freeze for up to a month and bake-off one at a time OR place on a cookie tray and bake for 15-20 minutes.


If you want to take your cookies to the next level use a mixture of AP flour and cake flour. Trust me… DO IT. For this recipe, I would do 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1/3 cup cake flour.
