Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Latte Cookies

I have been really into coffee flavored things lately.  I do love my oat milk lattes, but coffee is so amazing in desserts as well!  Even when I was a kid, and I hated actual coffee I loved tiramisu and chocolates that were flavored with a little coffee. So I was excited when Raw Guru sent me some Rawmio Hazelnut Latte Spread.  It is like really good vegan nutella with a hint of coffee.  I love their nut butters!  So I decided it would be delicious in some cookies.  Well, I was hinted at by one of my family members who wanted me to make cookies actually and I loved that idea!

Nut butter cookies are one of my favorite things, peanut butter cookies, almond butter cookies and hazelnut butter cookies.  These ones are just taken up a notch with the chocolate and a bit of coffee!  I love that they are one of the easiest cookies to make, no fancy mixing or chilling required!  I used the hazelnut latte spread in them, along with some cacao powder and espresso powder to give them even more of a coffee flavor.  If you can't get the spread no worries, I have included directions on how to make it with plain hazelnut butter or another nut butter. 

I also mixed toasted hazelnuts and dark chocolate chips into the dough to make it extra good.  And it was so delicious that I had a hard time not eating too much of it before it was made into cookies. That is my favorite part of making cookies though, eating the dough.  It has to be sampled right?!  They smelled amazing while baking!  I could not wait to try them! 

I did not have to wait long for them to cool. These are the perfect type of cookie to eat while the chocolate chips are still warm and gooey!  They are rich and decadent tasting packed with chocolate flavor, a hint of coffee and crunchy hazelnuts!  They would be amazing with a hot cup of coffee for dunking!  I am totally going to try that tomorrow!
