Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cups Pies (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

Cookies are hard not to love, and so does a creamy chocolate hazelnut spread. In this recipe I decided to mix two of my favorite things (well, really three!) and create the most amazing cookie pie recipe... easy to make and extremely delicious while being secretly healthy.


Cookie cups with a delicious combination of hazelnut and mocha! One of the best parts of this recipe is super easy to make, trust me... so basically is just mix, pour and bake, extremely easy! But these cookie pies are gut friendly since we are skipping the gluten and all the inflammatory and refined sugars.



About these Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cups Pies:

Let's go beyond the classic cookie with chocolate chips and let's create a fusion of flavors that nobody will be able to resist! I also wanted to include a twist, a fun a de delicious twist by just using Good Phats as my base, a chocolate chip cookie mix that will make things ever easier.


This cookie mix just saves us a lot of steps, ingredients and it also keeps things low carb. We are just adding some eggs and MCT (coconut oil and ghee also work!) for the cookies and the filling is also super simple to make and secretly packed with protein.


Key Ingredients:

Adding some protein powder for extra creaminess and a satisfying filling. I have been also obsessed with the Marigold Vanilla Latte Protein Coffee, their ingredients are always the best and the taste is always delicious too, this smooth vanilla is basically a healthy, dreamy and indulgent vanilla latte (keto and gluten free!).


The Filling of these Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cups Pies:

With a creamy chocolate hazelnut filling! In this occasion I used OWN Hazelnut Spread, made with simple ingredients, creamy and heavenly with only 100 calories per 2 tablespoons, you are just going to love it.... and of course, greek yogurt. I used organic and unsweetened and I use monk fruit to add sweetness, greek it's also a great source of probiotics!



Coffee! For the coffee touch I simply prepared the protein coffee from Marigold Vanilla Latte Protein Coffeethat adds some collagen, gut love and all the flavor! Plus some amino acids.


Did I also mention that these cookie cups have only 162 calories per cup? So these are a gret snack, low in sugar, carbs and inflammatory ingredients. We've got the goods!



The base of this Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cups Pies:

The base is made with simple ingredients and Marigold Vanilla Latte Protein Coffee made with grass-fed collagen to keep it nutrient dense and gut friendly. Plus some Good Phats Keto Cookie Mix as part of our delicious base.



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cups Pies:

So we've got our protein, our crunch factor all in this simply and wholesome recipe! As a foodie and nutritionist I believe that the quality of the ingredients can make the difference in our health and also make healthy food more sustainable.


In here we are using products that stick to whole some and nothing artificial... plus no inflammatory ingredients.


Super nutrient dense! And we are not including sugars, syrups, wheat and instead, keto cookie cup made with whole some and non-artificial ingredients. These are just LEGIT AND DELICIOUS.

The end result

Soft and flavorful! The hazelnut spread melts in your mouth, and the flavor of the latte is there, the texture is just perfect, soft and fluffy. Perfect to pair a cozy drink of the season or just alone, great as a post workout, snack or dessert.


The cookie base is just perfect and along with the hazelnut, is just another level that makes the perfect match for your latte!




You might want to save this recipe because a second batch might be needed here! I shared some of the pops with my friends but they were just too good as my afternoon snack after crossfit or dessert that I had to bake some more.

Pro tip: You can also drizzle some melted chocolate to make them even prettier and tastier!



This is a great recipe that your family or friends will love! Easy to prepare and elegant and fun no matter the occasion, this recipe is made to enjoy in the most effortless and most delicious way ever, I mean... only simple and minimal ingredients in a low carb and gluten free dream!
