Sweet and super crunchy chocolate chip cookies that are great to munch on for that cookie craving!


  • 125 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 45 g brown sugar
  • 27 g beaten egg
  • 148 g plain flour
  • 2 g cocoa powder
  • 1 & 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp instant coffee granules + 1/4 tsp hot water (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g chocolate chips


  1. Add hot water to coffee granules and set aside to cool. Once cool, add 1/2 tsp (only) of thick coffee to beaten egg. Mix well and rest in fridge for about 2h.
  2. When egg mixture is ready after 2h, bring egg mixture to room temp. Preheat oven to 160C.
  3. Place flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Whisk to combine well.
  4. Whisk butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and pale.
  5. Add in egg mixture and whisk well. Sift in the flour mixture and mix using a cutting motion with a spatula. Press the dough against sides of the bowl to form dough. Stir in chocolate chips. (If you like diced almond, add in 40g)
  6. Drop by tsp onto a baking sheet or parchment paper. Using the back of the spoon, flatten the top slightly. Bake in preheated oven at 160C for about 20-25 minutes or until nicely brown. You might need to rotate the baking tray halfway through the baking time.
  7. When cookies are baked, let tray cool slightly on wire rack for a few mins, before transferring  cookies onto the rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.


Makes about 55-65 cookies.

If you do not have coffee syrup, omit it. Skip Step 1 in this case.

You can also make bigger / smaller cookies by using cookie scoop or tablespoon. Adjust the timing to bake for  extra 10-15 mins / lesser 5 mins, or until cookies are baked browned.
