Oh man. I have the easiest, healthiest, most delicious cookie recipe for you today. I’ve been eating them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Don’t judge.
I was inspired to make a minimal ingredient cookie by Dana, over at Minimalist Baker. She posted this version last week, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. Hers had 5 ingredients and included chocolate (swoon), so I knew I wanted to do something with chocolate also, but put my own spin on it. Enter, my homemade nutella. OH. YES.
These cookies only have THREE ingredients. Whaaaaa?!?!
Gluten free oats, very ripe bananas, and dairy-free homemade nutella. I mean, 3 of my favorite things in one cookie.
The batter could not be any easier to throw together. Just mash everything together, spoon it onto a baking sheet, bake and boom. You have delicious banana-y/chocolate-y goodness to shove into your face.
NUTELLA COOKIES. I’m way too excited about these.
These little gems are firm, yet soft and chewy. They have a strong banana taste, but at the same time a prominent nutella flavor. And the best part? They are totally healthy, with no added sugars, oil, butter or flour. We’re getting’ cray up in here.
Thank you, Dana, for the inspiration for these sweet little nuggets of wonderful.
*On a side note: if you use the regular store bought Nutella, these will not technically be vegan cookies because the pre-made kind uses dairy milk.
Happy snacking, my friends!
