Hi Bold Bakers!

I know how much you guys love quick and easy recipes! With this in mind I’ve created an insanely simple, satisfying, and surprisingly healthy 3 Ingredient Chocolate and Banana Cookie recipe, which is gluten free and egg free too. I also know how important bold flavors, high-quality ingredients and over-the-top results are to you and your family. This recipe delivers on that promise!

My 3 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Cookies are a crowd pleaser. From chocoholics, to those watching their waist,  everyone will be amazed by the fudgy texture and deep chocolate flavor that is achieved by combining 3 basic and healthy ingredients. It is easy to make these 3 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Cookies. I simply mash 3 bananas in a bowl, mix in smooth peanut butter and good quality cocoa powder. I just make it into a batter, then spoon dollops of the chocolate banana mixture onto a cookie sheet, and straight into the oven. It could not be easier!

After just 15 minutes in the oven my 3 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Cookies bake up into rich little bites of chocolate perfection. With no added sugar, flour or egg, it is hard to believe how yummy these babies are. Soft and chewy on the inside, crisp on the outside and just sweet enough, I cannot really imagine such a simple recipe getting any better. And the best part, these 3 Ingredient Cookie wonders are so good for you they can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Hi Gemma,

If I only have cacao powder as opposed to cocoa, do I use the same amount or do I need to modify in some way? I know cacao is usually more bitter and intense than cocoa…

Thank you!

Delicious! Made this recipe twice now. First time the cookies were a bit bitter. Tonight I added approximately 1/3 cup of cocoa powder instead of 1/2 cup and I added almost 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips. I love thembhhis way!

What can we substitute for peanut butter? I don’t have peanut butter. Can I use olive oil or vegetable oil?

Hi Gemma,

I can’t wait to try these cookies. I cut the recipe in half since I am the only one who eats this.
I will post my reviews once I tried them.

Thank you!
