3 Ingredient Cookies: Three AMAZING Recipes!

Making homemade cookies has never been simpler when you can make 3 Ingredient Cookies like Peanut Butter, Coconut Macaroons and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip!
3 Ingredient Cookies? It's true and they are soooooo good!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Sometimes, being Big and Bold means going over the top! Stacked layer cakes, complex flavors and fancy techniques are all standard fare at this point. But the more I bake, the more I find how much all the great bakers and eaters out there also appreciate some simple classic treats as well. Each week, I look forward to sharing some new recipe ideas, but this week I’ve decided to show you all how to take some old favorites and transform them into something super simple and approachable! I’ve created three amazing 3 Ingredient Cookies recipes that take our classic favorites and pare them down, using only 3 basic ingredients, and only taking about 30 minutes from the measuring bowl to your mouth!

No cookie repertoire is complete without a Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe. My recipe is easy as can be. These bake up to be lovely and impressive with the classic cross hatch pattern on top and they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser.

My next 3 ingredient cookie recipe is actually just 2! I don’t think I’ve ever made anything as simple and satisfying as my Coconut Macaroons. These are made with sweetened condensed milk and coconut, baked to a lovely golden brown then dipped in chocolate, making it 3 ingredients. These are full of coconut flavor, super chewy, and perfectly sweet. This is the last macaroon recipe you will ever try.

My last 3 ingredient cookie recipe is an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie. I love anything that has toasty oats like my homemade Hob-Nob cookies. These are beyond simple and naturally healthy, as they’re free from oil, added sugar or dairy! The magic ingredient in these cookies is banana. That’s right, 2 bananas, oats and chocolate chips are all you need. Reading this right now, you’re just 15 minutes in the oven and 3 ingredients away from any one of these absolutely gorgeous cookies. Enjoy!

Good morning
I wondering how do you know when the peanut butter cookies are ready to come out of the oven? My oven temperature is off and sometimes it bakes things faster. I’m not quite sure what to look for. Thanks in advance.

Hi Gemma!
Thanks to your wonderful recipes I was able serve my friend with sweet treats when she came over for morning tea party (and bible study). My sister and I especially loved the coconut macaroons! The dogs loved the peanut cookies too. Their eyes went sparkling demanding more and more (s’more, s’more!!)

Thank you so much!!!
I totally believe all of your recipes now.
You must be an angel in disguise to be able to share all these wonderful recipes with us freely.
I love you!

My grandson is autistic and loves coconut. His mother has him dairy free so I wondered if substituting banana instead of condensed milk would work. If not banana, what else would work? I will give her the oatmeal recipe as well since she is gluten-free.

For diabetics, I use the Swerve sugar replacements – no sugar, and no bitter aftertaste. Our local Health Food Store carries the Swerve granulated sugar, brown sugar, and confectioners’ sugar. I use them 1 for 1 in all my recipes now, and my diabetic clients are excited to have a great tasting dessert. Even non-diabetics can sneak a taste and would never guess they are for diabetics.

I made the peanut butter ones and was skeptical as I’ve never made a cookie without flour, they were amazing!! Left them in oven for 17 mins and they turned out perfect!!????

Hi Gemma,
I have been watching your channel for quite a while and your channel is amazing. I love your cookie recipies the best, especially the 3 ingredient cookies. Unfortunately I dont have an OTG or the oven which you use in this channel for baking. Can these be done in microwave oven? If so how do i bake and for how long?

Thanks,
Birunda
