The 3-ingredient cookie

By Sari Huhtala

I can’t think of an easier, more versatile cookie recipe than this one. It literally is made with three ingredients, it’s vegan, gluten-free, and healthy enough you’ll want to serve it to your kids for breakfast.

Plus, you can switch it up a bit each time you bake them, if you get tired of the same old cookie.

Cookie base:

  • ¼ cup nut butter or sunflower seed butter
  • ½ cup almonds ground into a flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Simply combine all ingredients and roll dough into about 8 balls. Place on a cookie sheet and flatten with a fork. Bake for about 8-10 minutes.

Cookie options:

Peanut butter cookies are made simply with peanut butter, ground almonds and maple syrup.

Add chocolate chips to make a chocolate chip cookie.

Add raisins, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, chopped dates, etc. to make a breakfast cookie.
