Espresso Brownie Cookies

Happy 1st weekend of 2019.  I cannot believe it is already almost a week into this new year.  To celebrate making it through the week I made these Espresso Brownie Cookies.  Now I know they are not KETO, but they are pretty amazing and a perfect treat before I jump back on the KETO train next week.

Brownies or Cookies?

Do you ever have a hard time deciding between a brownie or a cookie?  Yes?  No?  Well I do…except not anymore.  This cookie/brownie is everything you love about both in one quick recipe.  

They are fudgy, rich and super chocolaty with a hint of espresso in each bite.  

The perfect bite

These are just the cutest little cookies.  I used a small cookie scoop because I wanted each one to be 3-4 bites.  

They are so rich that in my opinion if you made them any bigger I would not be able to each the whole thing.  To give these cookies a little something I added in the espresso powder.  It not only brings out the dark chocolate goodness but it also adds a little bitterness which makes this cookie something to remember.
