Recipes don’t come easier than this – a cookie recipe using only 3 ingredients and requires no baking. What makes them even better is they’re healthy! Using only almond butter, oats a little bit of maple syrup to sweeten.

I can’t seem to stop creating super simple and quick treats. It has definitely become my thing now, especially since lockdown. Simple comforts with few, easy to find ingredients that don’t leave you with a lot of washing up behind.

I was looking through my recipe archive and came across these no-bake chocolate oat cookies and remembered how popular they were, so I was inspired to make another version that’s even simpler. You can use peanut butter instead of almond butter if that’s what you have in your cupboard. It will work just as well. You can use regular oats, or opt for gluten-free oats if necessary.

If you’re craving a sweet treat, but want something a little healthier than a shop bought cookie or biscuit, you MUST try these 3-ingredient almond butter cookies!
