3-Ingredient Cookies

If you haven’t checked out Chic Vegan, then you really should.  Even if you aren’t vegan, there are tons of great articles and reviews about animal-friendly brands and products that can help you and the environment.

I also contribute to Chic Vegan, so obviously you should go read all my articles. 3-Ingredient Cookies | Life Healthfully Lived

I recently reviewed a new product called Nocciolata.  Don’t worry, I had never heard of it before either.  It’s basically a dairy-free version of Nutella.  We all know what Nutella is, right?  Right.  Well, Nocciolata has their own version of Nutella and they decided to up their game and make a dairy-free one as well. It’s won awards and it’s pretty tasty.  Go read my review if you want to learn more.

Along with my review, I made a recipe for three-ingredient cookies that were awesome.  And slightly dangerous.  Because I mean, three-ingredient cookies are easy to ALWAYS have on hand and if you happen to eat all of them, you can just whip up another batch and tell yourself you won’t eat all of those until you realize you’ve already eaten half the batch and then you shove the rest in your husbands face because you don’t want to be a pig.  Not that this scenario has happened to me.

I totally ate the second batch myself and didn’t share.  YOLO. 3-Ingredient Cookies | Life Healthfully Lived

Anyways, I actually tested a bunch of different versions of this cookie and they all turned out surprisingly well.  Which never happens.  I shared the vegan version over on Chic Vegan, so if you want that one you can head over there.

I’m going to share the paleo-ish version.  I say paleo-ish because while all the ingredients are approved by a Paleo lifestyle, cookies aren’t exactly a health food.  But sometimes you just need a freaking cookie or seven.  If you have a favorite recipe for Paleo Nutella, then go ahead and use it because there are a dozen different versions out there.  I happen to like Paleo Grubs version best, but I also used my own Honey Roasted Almond Butter (not like Nutella at all but still good) and it worked out well.

Also, not to split hairs, but TECHNICALLY the Paleo version has four ingredients because I use two flours BUT I mixed them together beforehand so I’m sticking with the three-ingredient title.  Because I can.

Now cookie time.

3-ingredient Cookies- makes 14-16 cookies 3-Ingredient Cookies | Life Healthfully Lived

  • 1 cup Paleo Nutella OR Honey Roasted Almond Butter 
  • 2/3 cup almond flour (NOT meal)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 egg
  • flaky sea salt for topping, optional
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. Whisk together the two flours in a large bowl.  Add the Nutella or almond butter and the egg and combine until you have a very thick dough.  If needed, you can add a tiny TINY bit of water to get everything mixed together.
  3. Scoop out one tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball.  Place on the baking sheet and lightly flatten it with the palm of your hand.  Continue with the rest of the dough.  You might have to make two batches depending on the size of your baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes.  The cookies should be crisp around the edges and slightly soft in the middle.  Bake for another two minutes if they aren’t ready yet.  Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for five minutes and then move to a rack to cool completely. 3-Ingredient Cookies | Life Healthfully Lived
