3 Ingredient Cookie Bites

Happy Sunday Funday!

On the weekend I like to take time to prep food for the week. I usually make a big pot of quinoa, bake sweet potatoes, hard boil eggs, a big batch of granola or baked oatmeal for breakfasts and some kind of sweet treat/snack.

Lately, we have been on a cookie bite streak. Specifically, 3 ingredient cookie bites. Can’t. Get. Enough. I mean, really, who can get enough of a cookie? I ask my kids if they want a cookie and they’re all like WOOHOO! Cookie Time!


These aren’t your average cookie.

Three ingredients.

No baking.

Done in less than 10 minutes.

If you like Larabars, you’ll love this. It’s such a versatile recipe. The possible add ins are endless. Dried cherries would be unbelievable. Yum yum! Here’s a few other similar recipes that you may be interested in:

While I was snapping pics of the finished cookies, I had three sets of eyes ready to pounce the minute I wasn’t looking. Two little hands actually made their way into the pics and grabbed a bite. Thankfully, Cooper did not make a move and just stood off to the side and drooled!

  2. I love simple recipes, and recipes I have all the ingredients for. I’ve saved this one to try at a later date.
    This week, I’m cooking from the Nourished app. Tonight I am making zucchini boats. Should be delish.
