I'm such a lover of homemade lattes, seriously! Before making my own lattes at home, I was an avid Starbucks drinker---hello Frappuccinos. However, I can attest to how amazing it is to make your own coffee at home, especially when you get a chance to create so many delicious flavors from simple ingredients.
This Brown Butter Maple Cookie Latte is by far one of my top faves for the summer and it's such a fun drink for the entire family. You can either use store-bought cookies or make freshly baked chocolate chip cookies if you'd like!
While you might chose to add store-bought cookies to this latte, the options for freshly baked homemade cookies aren't short. Your Brown Butter Maple Cookie Latte will taste amazing, whichever you use, however, here's a few great recipes that you can start from:
The main component in this simple homemade Brown Butter Maple Cookie flavor and the coffee. To make your lattes, you’ll use:
In a medium 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter, stirring occasionally and letting it cook for 3-4 minutes, until dark bits begin to form and the entire butter becomes fragrant and darker. Set aside and let cool completely.
Absolutely if you substitute the unsalted butter with vegan butter! In that case----everything in this latte is completely dairy-free and if you’d like to switch things up with the type of plant-based milk that you use—–that’s totally fine! The world of plant-based milk is constantly expanding. From the classics like coconut milk, cashew milk, soy milk and almond milk, we now have delicious options like oat milk, and even potato and quinoa milk.
Yes, of course! To make this latte vegan, simple substitute the butter with vegan butter, ensure that you use vegan chocolate chip cookies, include vegan-friendly cookie butter, and top with coconut whipped cream. Wallah!
Yes! You can definitely switch things up by serving this latte hot or cold whenever you chose to. To serve hot, simply warm all latte ingredients together in a small saucepan until heated through. Pour in a mug and top with whipped cream and crushed chocolate chip cookies.
Making coffee throughout the week can sometimes mean that you won’t always use up your coffee, especially when making coffee from ground coffee beans. Yes—you can add leftover coffee in other ways (i.e. baking, making a mocktail, etc.), why not just freeze them and re-create a new latte each day? Haha.
Plus, it’s really simple to make, so there’s that. Therefore, if you're like me and you're a homemade latte lover, then use these Caramel Coffee Ice Cubes for any flavored latte, including in this Brown Butter Maple Cookie Latte.
If you want to drink this chilled Brown Butter Maple Cookie Latte every morning, it’s helpful to have the chocolate chip cookies prepped and ready to go. Once you make them and cool them fully, you can store it in an airtight container or glass jar at room temperature for 3-4 days or in the refrigerator for longer.
If you're making the cookie butter from scratch, you can also prep this as well.
When you’re ready to serve, stir the latte ingredients together and add your favorite toppings---whipped cream and crushed cookies. Enjoy!
