These are so good you can’t even believe how they can be all of those things listed above! Chocolate and coffee is already a winning combination and when you add chocolate chips, nuts and some extra crunch it becomes epic!

*I used almond flour but other flours work too, if you use a flour containing gluten than you can skip the arrowroot! Remember to use a flour that suites flavour wise and this purpose.
