You might argue that cookies are not healthy to begin with, but I am going to ignore that, because a life without cookies would be a terrible thing. Unimaginable, really!
What if we could make cookies with only 2 or 3 ingredients?
One cup of organic crunchy peanut butter and one egg mixed together make some pretty yummy peanut butter cookies. I added one table spoon of honey, because the organic peanut butter does not contain added sugar. Next time, I might try using Stevia as a sweetener. Take a table spoon full of your peanut butter and egg mix and roll it into a ball. Drop the ball on a greased baking sheet. Flatten with a fork. Bake about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
For easy banana coconut cookies mix one ripe banana with 3/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut and an egg. Drop about a tablespoon full of the mixture on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. How easy is that? I didn't add any sugar to this one, as the banana has plenty of sugar already. I added a small amount of grated unsweetened bakers chocolate and some walnuts. So, this one had 5 ingredients, but all the ingredients are whole foods. Yes, I consider chocolate to be a whole food as long as it is not sweetened.
There are many nut butters available now. I have seen cashew butter, almond butter, and sunflower seed butter in the store. Any nut butter should work for this simple cookie recipe. You could even make your own seed or nut butter, if you have a blender. I might try making macadamia nut butter some day, when I feel particularly ambitious.
Do you have any 2 or 3 ingredient cookie recipes? Please share, if you do.
