Try these healthy, no sugar added 3 ingredient cookies to fix your sweet tooth and need for a cookie, while still eating healthy! So simple and fast to make.
I’ve seen “healthy” cookies all over pinterest and I always roll my eyes. I mean, really?!? A healthy cookie. Well, I tried making my own and I’ll be honest and say I was pleasantly surprised. You trick your brain into thinking you’re actually eating a cookie when in reality it’s just oats and bananas and some mix-ins. It’s a good thing these are healthier because I ended up eating 6 of these little cookies…… 🙂
I even tricked my kids with these cookies. I told my son I made cookies for an after school snack and I was fully expecting him to spit it out and demand a real cookie, but to my surprise he wanted more. He ended up eating 5 of these!
I forgot to add the cinnamon in the picture above. So, it’s more like 4 ingredients…. My sleep-deprived-brain-because-I-have-a-newborn is not working like it should 🙂
If you’re looking for something to snack on or just really want a cookie, then try these out and let me know what you think. You want to aim for 1/4 cup of mix-ins. Obviously if you do craisins or chocolate chips they will no longer be ‘no sugar added’ cookies. Experiment with your favorite combinations. We really like a mix of pecan chips and raisins. Raisins provide a lot of sweetness without compromising the ‘no sugar added’ aspect of these cookies.
Mix-ins can include almonds, pecan pieces, raisins. You can also add chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, craisins, peanut butter chips (would not longer be 'no sugar added' if you add these).
I use 2 tablespoons crushed pecans and 2 tablespoons raisins to equal the 1/4 cup mix-ins.
