7 Healthy "Few Ingredient" Cookies

There has been another snow day here, and I have been finding myself incredibly low on groceries for a couple of weeks. I only buy a couple things when I go, and then I'm stuck with close to nothing again. This is partly to do with the fact that I'm waiting for a pay check, and I'm about to go away for a week, so I don't want too much in my kitchen. Anyway, I had a killer gym class today and was wanting something sweet, but healthy. I got my one small banana I had, shredded coconut, the last bit of dry Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal, the last tbs of ground flax seeds and a few spices and proceeded to make some healthy oatmeal-type cookies. I also had a few chocolate chips leftover from another recipe, so yay, chocolate chip oatmealish cookies were made in a flash!

Because I improvised as I went along, I don't have my exact measurements, but approx. measurements are:

  • 1 small banana
  • 1/3 cup dry Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal (It consists of brown rice, corn meal...all gluten free ingredients)
  • 1 tbs almond meal
  • 1 1/2 tbs shredded coconut
  • 1 tbs flax meal
  • 3 drops French Vanilla Stevia (or plain stevia/xylitol)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • a few chocolate chips
  • shake of cinnamon/nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Get out medium bowl, mash banana, add in the rest of the ingredients and mix to combine. Get out a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and scoop 1 tbs worth of batter. Flatten each ball of batter slightly. Bake for around 10-13 minutes.

These are quite a "breakfasty" type of cookie. They would even make a healthy breakfast too! It's basically like eating oatmeal in a cookie form.

My "recipe" is haphazard, so I found some other vegan "I only have a few/random ingredients in the house but I want cookies" cookie recipes. I love doing these, because it forces me to be a little more creative and not just turn to packaged cookies or always having to follow someone else's recipe.

  1. Vegan Banana Protein Cookies (6 ingredients)
  2. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (7 ingredients - using chickpeas!)
  3. No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies (3 ingredients)
  4. Banana Oatmeal Cookies (3 ingredients)
  5. 15-Minute Tahini Cookies (3 ingredients) - I think I am going to make these right now!
  6. Raw Cashew Cookies (3 ingredients)

Off to make some tahini cookies! ...Even though I just made cookies. Oh well... tis the season I guess.

    The "few ingredient" feature caught my eye. Good job!
