So, today I have brought a simple cookie recipe that bursts with coffee flavour. And the cute part is that I have shaped them like coffee beans.

Essential ingredients for coffee bean cookies

  • Icing Sugar: In powder form, icing sugar helps make compact and crisp cookies.
  • Corn flour: It helps to reduce the gluten level in the dough, making the cookie less chewy and crisper. 
  • Coffee Powder: Instant coffee is all you need to get the best coffee flavour from the cookie. Make sure you use good-brand coffee.
  • Dutch Process Cocoa Powder: Adding chocolate to the coffee enhances the cookie’s overall flavour.

Method To Make Coffee Bean Cookies?

  • Gather all ingredients: To begin with the recipe, collect all your ingredients. There are only 7 ingredients that you need; hence it will take a little bit of time to gather them all.
  • Prepare the dough: Using creaming method, start beating butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Next, mix coffee powder with milk and add it to the creamed butter. Finally, combine your dry ingredients to form a smooth dough. 
  • Shape the cookie dough: once the dough is ready, take 20 g of it and give it an oval shape. Now, press it from the middle using a wooden skewer to make it look like a coffee bean.
  • Freezing: Place all the shaped cookies on a lined baking tray and freeze them for 15-20 minutes.
  • Bake: Finally, bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180C for 12-15 minutes (otg mode: upper rod + Lower rod+ fan)

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Avoid Sugar Lumps

Use sifted icing sugar as it has many lumps. 

Do Not Over-Mix The Dough

Refrain from mixing or kneading the dough too much as that makes the butter melt and could lead to sticky dough.

Substitute For Cocoa Powder

You can use natural cocoa powder if dutch powder is not available. 

Type Of Coffee

The type of instant coffee you use will alter the flavour as well. For, e.g. If you use Arabica bean instant coffee, the taste would be more intense. 

How To Store Coffee Bean Cookies?

Cling wrap cookies and store them in an airtight box. Do not leave them open, as they will get moist/too soft.

To store the cookie dough, you can cling wrap the dough and place it either in fridge or freezer. it will last for months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use water in place of milk?

Ans. Yes, you can replace milk with water. Add as per consistency.

Can I shape these cookies differently? 

Ans. Yes, you can shape them however way you want to.

What to do if my cookies become soft?

Ans. If the baked cookies have turned soft, you can bake them again in the oven at the same temperature for 2-3 minutes. This will evaporate the excess moisture from the cookies and turn them crispy.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
