Coffee Crisps

Coffee crisps are simple crispy cookies made with almond flour and ground coffee. Quick, easy and delicious 


  • 2/3 cups almond or hazelnut flour
  • 1 cup superfine sugar also called caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coffee grounds preferably espresso grind
  • 2 large egg whites
  • superfine sugar for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (not waxed paper!)
  2. Combine flour, sugar and coffee in a bowl.
  3. Mix in egg whites to form a thick paste.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfulls on parchment paper in a round shape about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar on top of each cookie.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cookies turn golden. Move to a cooling rack immediately to cool.

Recipe Notes

I used superfine sugar for these, but assume regular granulated sugar would work as well.
