The 3 ingredients you will need are:
1 cup of oats
1/4 of a cup of chocolate chips.
Ice cream scoop
The great thing about this recipe is that it can easily work if you are on a diet or trying to eat healthier. My mom is on a diet and she says that she will be able to eat these cookies! Now, you can substitute the milk chocolate chips for dark chocolate, which will make these even more healthy. In fact, most diets require you eat dark chocolate. 🙂
First, you need to pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius. You can either spray your baking tray with non-stick cooking spray, or you can line it with parchment paper. You can also use butter to rub on the tray. You just don’t want the cookies to stick. Next, you need to mash your banana with a fork, in a bowl. Add the oats and then fold in the chocolate.
I used an ice cream scoop to put the cookie dough onto the tray. The dough is not super firm, so you might need to use your fingers to help make them a shape. This batch made about 10 cookies, but I also divided the original recipe in half. Once your oven is heated, place the try into the oven for about 15 minutes.
While the cookies were cooking, they smelled delicious and as they came out, it smelled like banana bread. You also know they are done, if the oats on top are toasted. These cookies were just as easy and scrumptious as the peanut butter cookies.

The things you will need are:
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
Ice cream scoop
First, you will need to pre-heat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius. You will also need to spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. You can also line it with parchment paper. In your mixing bowl add the sugar, peanut butter, and egg together. Mix until combined. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough onto the baking sheet. They do spread out in the oven, so I would recommend you leave a little bit of space between each ball. You can use your hands to make the balls ball of dough, but I found that the dough was not dry enough for you to touch without getting dirty. A general peanut butter cookies has the criss-cross pattern on it, so grab a fork and push the fork down vertically. Then pick it up and push it down horizontally. At this stage your cookies should look like this:
Place the baking sheet into the heated oven for about 15-20 minutes. I cooked mine for 15 minutes and they were a little brown on the bottom, so I would recommend cooking them for a less time.
When the cookies come out they are quite soft, so I do think you should let them cool for about 5 minutes before you move them. Ta-da! 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies works and are quite delicious. They are pretty sweet, so you can cut down the sugar content a little. To check out Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking click here.
