Coffee’s Health Benefits

It turns out that a morning cup of coffee does have some benefits! Research shows that Coffee Recipes may be a preventative measure against Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, Diabetes, and obesity. Dr. Shawn Talbott, a nutritional biochemist, explained the many benefits of coffee to The List. We’ve also included some creative recipes by Mario Gebran to help you apply these principles.

  1. Coffee


This is a truly amazing idea. For a delicious breakfast, you can put coffee in waffle mix. You will enjoy a better waffle and a greater amount of caffeine. Tip: Make sure to use extra-small coffee grounds so your waffle has a smooth taste.


1 3/4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups 2% milk

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp finely ground coffee


In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix together the milk, vegetable oil and eggs in a large bowl. Add vanilla extract, coffee grounds, and then whisk the mixture into a bowl. Mix milk texture with dry ingredients. Whisk until well combined. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Place 1/2 cup batter on the waffle iron. Close the oven and cook for 2 1/2 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. Coffee-Rubbed Steak

Coffee-rubbed steak is our next caffeinated creation. It will be amazing how well the richness of the espresso matches the smokeiness of a good steak. This will elevate your grilling experience to the next level.

Ingredients for New York Strip Dry Rub

Equal parts sea salt, pepper, and finely-ground espresso

Rub olive oil on your steak. Then, apply the dry rub generously to all areas of the steak, including the sides. Grill steak for 2 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook steak until desired doneness.

  1. Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

The pick-me up chocolate chip cookies is our last coffee recipe. This recipe is simple and can be made with any chocolate chip cookie mix. However, we’ve added a twist with the coffee grounds. To give the cookies that smooth taste, ensure they are very finely ground.


1/2 cup granulated Sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

12 oz. chocolate chips

1 tbsp finely ground coffee


Pre heat oven to 350F. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, brown sugars, and eggs in a large bowl on medium speed. To make it creamy, you can also use a whisk or a spoon. Mix in flour, coffee grounds and baking soda.

Drop 1/4 cupfuls of dough about 2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until edges are set and golden brown. Let cool for four minutes before transferring the cookie sheet to a wire rack. Let cool completely for about 30 minutes.
