GLUTEN-FREE MOCHA CHIP CAKIES

Life has been simply chaotic this week, though there's nothing simple about chaos. Anyway, work has been hectic and by the time I get home I just want to crawl in bed with my family and watch Jeopardy and get caught up on American Idol; and that's exactly what I've been doing.


Knowing that cooking actually relaxes me, my daughter asked if I would whip up a batch of cookies BUT it had to be off the top of my head. A challenge? LOVE IT!  Ok, at first I wasn't thrilled, but the mischievous smile on her face made this a challenge I couldn't back down from. 


I had just finished a new batch of cold brew coffee and wanted to test it out, which brings us to the MOCHA CHIP CAKIES. 


A light texture, part cookie part cake - hence the name ;) The coffee flavor is very light which makes these perfect for dunking...in more coffee! YAAAAY!
