Gluten Free Mocha Cookies

I have been working so hard on making things my children would like and not for myself that I decided it was time to find one for just me. I love coffee and was on the hunt for a mocha recipe. These little *pop in your mouth* cookies are just the ticket.
Gluten Free Mocha Cookies
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 unbeaten egg whites
1 cup almond meal
3 Tbs Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 Tbs Instant Coffee or Espresso granules
pinch of salt
1 tsp Vanilla
Put all the ingredients in your mixer and mix until you have a sticky dough.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Wet your hands and roll the dough into mini balls and place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.
Bake for 11 minutes. Pull from oven, allow to cool on pan for 2 mins and then place on a cooling rack for the remaining time to cool.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee.

Mmm...these cookies sound fantastic! I love mocha flavour too, wish I had some ground almonds at home now! :)

I always have Almond Meal in the house. I store it in my freezer. I make the Almond Meal bread every week. It is a great way to get protein in the morning or for a snack.

What instant coffee do you use? Every one I've looked at has gluten in it! I'm going to grind some espresso beans right now!

Maxwell House. It says 100% Pure Coffee. That's all the ingredients.
