3 Ingredient Cookies: Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe & More!

November 4, 2019 100 By William Morgan


Hi Bold Bakers!
What if I told you I had a recipe for you
that requires just three ingredients and can
be made in under five minutes?
And the best thing is, these are all ingredients
that you have in your house right now!
Now because this is Bigger Bolder Baking I
am going to show you three different recipes
where you can do just that.
So lets get baking!
So if you follow me on social media you’ll
know that I’m always out and about in LA,
traveling, or working.
So I eat a lot of snacks on the go.
Now, on Bigger Bolder Baking, I emphasize
using good quality ingredients, that’s why
I’m excited to tell you that I partnered with
NatureBox who have the exact same ethos.
NatureBox create unique snacks that taste
great and they’re better for you, they’re
made with good quality ingredients and they
have no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners,
which is one of the things I love about them.
Now, my favorite snacks are Dark Cocoa Nom
Noms – it’s kind like a brownie and a truffle
all mixed into one.
It’s so delicious.
I also love Crunchy BBQ Twists, which are
lentil chips.
And another one is Santa Fe Corn Stix, I love
these because they’re a little bit spicy.
Now, they also make amazing jerky but I cant
show it to you ‘cause I already ate it and
I wasn’t supposed to do that.
But anyway.
On their website, NatureBox.com, they have
over 100 snacks over there and they add new
ones every single month, so you’ll never
get bored.
Now here is the best part: NatureBox have
very kindly offered my Bold Bakers three free
snacks with your first order.
All you have to do is go to NatureBox.com/Gemma.
They will deliver them straight to your door,
and if you don’t like your snacks, they
will replace it for free.
Now, all of this information can be found
in the description box below the video.
Now, unfortunately for right now, this offer
is only available to US residents.
Okay, now lets get started on our recipes.
So the first recipe were going to make, believe
it is or not, is a three ingredient oatmeal
chocolate chip cookie.
It tastes so amazing.
All you need are some rolled oats, some bananas,
and then chocolate chips.
So the first thing were gonna do is mash our
bananas in a bowl with a fork.
Mash up your banana until it’s really fine
and then there’s no lumps.
We wanna get it nice and mushy.
Lovely.
Ok now into this were going to add in rolled
oats and some chocolate chips.
Now at this point you might be thinking to
yourself, “Gemma’s gone crazy!”
And there’s no way these are gonna make
cookies.
Well, it does because the banana acts as your
egg and as your butter and it bakes just like
it.
And our oats are going to be similar to our
flour.
The best thing about these cookies is that
it doesn’t contain any gluten because oats
don’t have gluten.
Also, there’s no egg, and there’s no added
sugar so it’s a really good cookie for you.
And, made in less than five minutes.
Now I’m gonna scoop this guy onto our tray.
So I like to do a big scooped tablespoon of
cookie mix and then straight onto your tray
lined with parchment paper.
Now, I love chocolate chip cookies but the
thing about it is, you don’t want chocolate
chips, you can put raisins in there, even
add a little bit of cinnamon, whatever you
like.
Okay, that’s it, our cookies are done, just
so you know, these guys wont spread out too
much so you want to give them a little pat
down and flatten out.
I mean seriously, three ingredients, five-minute
cookies, come on, nothing better than this.
Okay, these guy are looking great, they’re
ready to be baked off.
Bake these little beauties off at 350 degrees
Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius for roughly
15-20 minutes.
Our cookies are out of the oven they smell
absolutely delicious.
Now, as you can see, these cookies actually
don’t brown a whole lot, but that’s okay,
that’s the nature of them.
They just look like this on the outside and
as they go cold they, they firm um a little
bit.
So they’ve cooled down a little bit so I’m
gonna crack one open.
This looks delicious.
Mmm.
The crazy thing about these cookies is that
they’re gluten free, they are egg free,
they have no added fat, all natural sugars,
oh man, if you leave out these chocolate chips
and add in dairy-free chocolate chips they
also make great vegan cookies.
I have to say these cookies were a great success.
Now, I hope you like coconut, ‘cause that
is our next recipe.
So in our next three-ingredient recipe we
are going to make coconut macaroons.
You know those lovely mounds with the chocolate
on the bottom, I love them, and you can make
them with just three ingredients: some shaved
coconut, or desiccated coconut, some condensed
milk, and some chocolate.
Just like the other cookie, whip it all together
and bake it off.
So into our bowl add in coconut, followed
by our condensed milk, and then mix it all
together with a spatula.
So now this is another great cookie recipe
that doesn’t require egg or flour.
Really, really easy.
So traditionally coconut macaroons have egg
whites in them, but the condensed milk in
this recipe eliminates the need for that.
Okay that it, I go back to what I said, five
minute cookies in no time.
These guys are ready to go onto our baking
tray.
To shape, scoop a nice heaped tablespoon of
your macaroon mix and then just place it on
your tray, leaving a little bit of space between
them.
Now, I know these are really easy recipe to
remember, but the quantities and all the instructions
can be found on my website, BiggerBolderBaking.com.
Okay, we are done with another cookie.
No time at all.
These guys are ready to be baked off.
Bake your coconut macaroons off at 350 degree
Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius, for roughly
15-20 minutes.
So here are our coconut macaroons, can you
believe how gorgeous they look?
They’re golden brown on top, they smell amazing,
I just adore coconut so much.
There’s something about it that leaves me
wanting more.
These beautiful, I like how they kept as well.
Now, traditionally these guys are served with
a little bit of chocolate on the bottom so
now that they’re nice and cooled, that’s our
next step.
So here I have a bowl of melted chocolate,
and I’ve got myself some forks.
I’m just gonna go ahead and dip the bottom
of the macaroon into the chocolate.
You just want to dip the bottom, you don’t
want it to go too far up the sides.
Just like so.
And then scrape off any excess chocolate,
and then put it onto your rack so it can dry
off.
And then go ahead and just keep on dipping.
One of the biggest requests I get are recipes
without eggs so I’m really glad that I’m able
to bring you two cookies that have no eggs
in them so that more people can enjoy them.
Okay, our macaroons are looking fantastic,
and I can tell that this guy over here is
dry, so I can give him a taste.
Oh yum.
Yum, yum, yum.
I just love coconut, so tasty.
It’s nice and thick, squishy, a little bit
of sweetness from the condensed milk, mmm,
mmm, mmm.
I really, really love this one, but I think
I might have actually saved the best to last.
So I really hope you like peanut butter.
So now, get this!
I am going to show you how you can make the
best peanut butter cookie you’ve ever had
with three simple ingredients.
Peanut butter, sugar, and an egg.
So into our bowl I’m gonna add in my peanut
butter.
Now, you can use chunky or smooth peanut butter,
also, you can use any kind of a nut butter
you like.
That will work well too.
Follow your peanut butter with some sugar,
and then one egg.
And then just combine all these together.
So now like the other cookies, this cookies
doesn’t contain flour, however it does contain
an egg, and we cant substitute that out, we
need that in these cookies.
Okay, there you go.
Another cookie mixed under five minutes.
Nice and soft.
Now were gonna scoop him onto our baking tray.
Just like the other cookies, I like to do
a heaped tablespoon of batter.
Make ‘em nice and big.
Okay, so now they’re all scooped.
Now were gonna get that lovely traditional
look that you usually see on a peanut butter
cookie.
You need two forks, and all you want to do
is just press one down on top, then go across
it the other way.
So just do a criss-cross.
And then just keep on going all the way around.
And press down your cookies a little bit so
they spread out more when they bake.
So now I want you to hang around to see these
once they come out of the oven ‘cause I’m
telling you they’re the best cookies ever.
Okay, gorgeous!
Made all pretty, good to go, time to bake
‘em off!
Bake your cookies at 350 Fahrenheit or 180
degrees Celsius for roughly 15-20 minutes.
Here we are, out of the oven if you could
only smell my kitchen right now, oh it smells
heavenly!
Now, I love to eat peanut butter cookies warm,
so I’m just gonna break this guy in half and
just show you how delicious and buttery he
is on the inside.
It’s not cakey ‘cause it has no flour in
it, its soft, absolutely delicious.
Mmm, oh yeah.
I mean, seriously, takes no time at all to
make.
Now, I just showed you how three completely
different cookies out of simple household
ingredients.
Now be sure to head over to NatureBox.com/Gemma
and take advantage of the three free snacks
that they’re offering you with your first
purchase.
I guarantee you’re gonna love their snacks.
