Your new caffeine fix: Cookies
It might be painful, but just for a second, imagine skipping your morning coffee. Gasp! For some, having that morning cup of coffee is not only a ritual, it’s a godsend. And when time is short, sometimes adding a bite to eat is out of the question.
Esther Kang, the owner of Batch from Scratch, a Los Angeles-based bakery offering gourmet sweets, is hoping you’ll turn to them for your all-in-one morning fix. Her online bakeshop features two new caffeinated cookies meant to give you a sugary treat and your morning coffee kick: the cardamom caramel macchiato cookie and the Mayan chocolate inferno cookie.
The bakery describes the cardamom caramel macchiato as a mix between a caramel macchiato and a bolder Turkish coffee with a hint of cardamom and cloves. The cookie gets its caffeine from instant espresso powder and coffee grounds.
The Mayan chocolate inferno is a double chocolate cookie with some spice. You get the inferno heat from a mix of cayenne pepper and chipotle and a hefty dose of caffeine from instant espresso powder.
The cookies are available at Batchfromscratch.com and exclusively at Scoops Westside.
Might be a fun treat to have on your way to work or even for dessert. And for those addicted to caffeine, even a snack with your coffee.
