These 3-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies are the the most amazing (and totally guilt-free) way to satisfy your cookie cravings!
I almost wouldn’t even consider this a recipe. It’s just me telling you to mix two things together for GREAT cookie satisfaction that you won’t feel guilty about.
All you need is 3 simple ingredients you probably have in your kitchen already: a ripe banana, a cup of almond meal and chocolate, of course. You can leave the chocolate out, but you don’t want to miss all the decadence and yumminess, do you? Mix all the first 2 ingredients together, top them with chocolate chips and you’ll be less than 15 mins away from a whole bunch of super tasty cookies.
No flour, milk, eggs, baking soda, butter /oil or sugar needed. No need to buy any funny cookie mix box ( what’s inside this stuff anyway?). Only 2 fantastic natural ingredients and a bunch of chocolate chips. Can you believe it takes so little effort to make some delicious homemade healthy cookies?
All you have to do is put a ripe banana and a cup of almond flour in a powerful blender ( I use a Vitamix), and mix until creamy and well combined.
Drop tablespoon-size amounts of delicious cooking mixture on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Make sure you leave about 2 inches space between the cookies. Top each cookie with some chocolate chips, 5 is the perfect number.
Bake for 15 min or until golden on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, I like them slightly chilled.
Now, grab a cookie and enjoy all the indulgent chewy goodness that is packed with.
I love the banana + almond combo but you can easily customize these 3-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies to meet your own taste. Some great combinations are:
banana + coconut flour
banana + ground pistachio nuts
banana + ground hazelnuts
Basically you can use any ground nuts you like, and top with anything you can dream of. I went for dark chocolate chips ( make sure to use high-quality 70% chocolate), but some of my favorite toppings include dried cranberries, crystallized ginger or orange peel, toasted almond flakes and dried chopped mango.
The best part about these cookies is that they are totally dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, soy-free and anything else you can think of.
These magic 3-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies are a great addition to breakfast or tea time, especially now that summer is almost gone and we’re ready to welcome fall.
