Calories 255kcal


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons espresso powder
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners. Set aside.
  • Beat butter and sugars for several minutes, until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined, scraping the bowl as needed.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix on low speed until just combined. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Roll the dough into approximately 1 1/2 tablespoon balls (or use a cookie scoop). Set on the prepared cookie sheets, leaving a couple of inches in between for spreading. Press the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips onto the tops of the mounds of dough (this will help the chocolate chips be more visible). Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely on the baking sheet.
