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!

The recipes are great except you never said how much of each ingredient.

I am diabetic but love to make your recipes. For the peanut butter cookies or cookies in general how much of the sugar can I reduce? 1 cup to 1/2 cup maybe?

So what are the three ingredients? Nowhere on this page are they listed 🙁

Tried the oatmeal banana cookies. Made them with raisins and not chocolate. I used 2 very ripe bananas. They are not sweet enough. Maybe 2 -3 tablespoons of brown sugar would help.

Hi Ms. Gemma. I just want to ask if I can baked it using gas range stove or oven toaster? Since I don’t have an oven and I love to make this for my kids. Please advise. Thank you😊

I baked and shared this recipe today with the senior citizen where my mom lives. They loved the cookies and couldn’t believe that there were only 3 ingredients. I plan on sharing some of them with my cousin, who is gluten free. I am sure she will love them as much as I do. Thank you.
