Caffeine Cookies

cookies with added caffeine

Caffeine cookies really exist! Here’s a recipe and two pre-baked caffeinated cookies available for sale in the USA.

First, Blogger and Coffee fiend Chris Howard gives us his recipe for creating caffeinated cookies.

Basically he starts off with a standard oatmeal cookie recipe (like this one here).

Caffeinated Cookie Recipe

Then the magic:

Being an experimenter, I don’t write anything down, but here’s the basic formula for super-wicked oatmeal coffee chocolate chip cookies: Take your normal oatmeal cookie recipe, and if it calls for liquid (some do) put in some very strong coffee. Then grind some really good medium roast coffee beans into powder, adding at least two tablespoons to your dry ingredients. That’s it.

I would say at least two tablespoons – this is about the amount of coffee used to make a double-shot (doppio) espresso.

I would take it a step further. Why not use caffeinated oatmeal in the mix?

Don’t Feel Like Baking?

get up and go cookies

There are a few pre-baked caffeinated cookies available for sale.

1. Caffeinated Smart Cookie from Get Up and Go

These are regular chocolate chip cookies but with added natural caffeine. They are soft baked and each cookie contains 180 mg of caffeine.

We tried these caffeine cookies and you can read our review here.

Chocolate Chip isn’t the only cookie these guys are baking, but have a few other caffeinated treats as well.

  • Chocolate Chip Blondies
  • Caffeinated Brownies
  • Mocha Espresso Cookies
  • Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins
  • Double Chocolate Chip Muffins
  • Dolce Latte Granola
  • Mocha Joe Granola

All of Get Up and Go’s caffeinated cookies and baked goods can be purchased online or at many locations in Ann Arbor, MI and a few locations in Texas and California.

2. Awaken Baked from The Cookie Department

This cookie contains coffee and chocolate chips in order to give it a caffeine punch. No word on how much caffeine these cookies contain.

Just don’t feed either of these to your children as caffeine cookies are an adult only type of snack.

Especially the Smart Cookie! At 180 mg of caffeine this cookie has more caffeine than a 16 fl.oz. Monster or two 8 fl. oz. Red Bulls!

  • Or even better add some purecaf to it! Still though I think the coffee flavor would rock with the chocolate chips. Anyone tried the purecaf yet? I had forgot about it till I read this.

    Hmm…any alternatives to people who don’t drink/use coffee?

  • Betty the Crack Fiend

    I made some cookies with the following recipe:

    Melt 1/2 cup of butter
    Stir in:
    1/2 cup of brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar.
    1 egg
    Mix well.

    To this mixture, add:
    1/2 Tsp salt
    1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
    3/4 cup White Flour, sifted
    1/3-3/4 cup coffee, finely ground into a powder
    Mix well.

    Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips or your favorite nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc.)

    Drop cookie dough onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes @ 375F. Makes approx. 10 cookies.

    These cookies will be highly caffienated, each cookie having roughly 1 cup of coffee.
    The big trick of getting this recipe right is the amount of flour vs. coffee powder to add. Adjust coffee added to recipe based on moisture. You want a gooey mixture that isn’t too dry. And make sure you grind the coffee beans to a fine powder. Otherwise cookies will be gritty, like eating sand.

    Try it and let me know whatcha all think.

  • Caf-fiend

    Why not just grind up say 3-4 Vivarin or break open a few Yellow Jackets and mix in when you are combining the dry ingredients. WOW, thats such an amazing idea, I’m gonna try that.

  • hannah

    their pretty good, but make sure to grind the coffee a very very long time.

  • levi

    lmfao,il make a weed cookie instead ,thanks .

  • Allie

    You could also use caffeine powder so you dont hafta ground stuff up. I believe I got mine from or something similar to that. If you cant find it search for it. The caffeine powder has a strong taste but if I can disguise the taste easily in kool-aid then im sure it will be indetecable in cookies. Good luck guys!

  • I make my cookies from Protein I buy from 😀 Its so clean and fresh – VERY natty too 😀
