{healthy, no sugar added} 3 Ingredient Cookies

23K Shares

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…… πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚Β 

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.

      November 19, 2017 at 12:13 pm You could always try it. I've never frozen the dough so I can't say for sure what would happen.

    January 21, 2018 at 2:01 pm I made them. They turned out awesome. But i think we have to refrigerate them if we want to keep them for longer time than few days

      February 11, 2018 at 10:18 pm I am in the process of adding nutrition count to all my recipes. It takes a while to get through them all. It makes 12 cookies and I would guess that they are easily under 100 calories each. Hopefully soon, I can give you an exact calorie count on this recipe.

    April 26, 2018 at 1:37 am Hello jess, thanks for the great recipe, looks yummy and so easy. I want to try it for my baby girl's bday and i was wondering if i can colour the oats to make coloured cookies? Any suggestion on how to do it for pink colour?

      April 29, 2018 at 8:44 pm If that's what you want to do, I would just add some pink food coloring to the oats. I have never done that so I can't say for sure it would work that well but you could always try it and see. Enjoy!

      June 1, 2018 at 8:43 pm They are not meant to be crispy :) There is no flour or any other normal "cookie" ingredient. More of a snack type cookie.

    July 30, 2018 at 8:42 am We love these. I do add a dash of vanilla, but as we are all watching waistlines, I add no sugar but just the natural sugars of the raisins. (Or chips if we're feeling naughty lol) I'm thinking I may chop some dates and try that. Great recipe for a snack with evening tea 😊
