Delicious cookies that are super easy to make and taste delish! These 4-ingredient vegan cookies are a must try.

Did you know you can make cookies using only 4 ingredients? AND they’re much better for you compared to regular cookies. They’re also vegan and gluten-free.

I’m still trying to keep my recipes super simple with as little ingredients as possible since food shopping is still a bit of a pain with having to queue up and certain items still being out of stock. Also simpler recipes like this mean they’re a lot faster to make and leave less washing up behind!

Why buy unhealthy cookies filled with sugar, fats and God knows what else, when you can easily make a delicious cookies from scratch in no time using better-for-you ingredients? It really is a no brainer! You can also easily double the recipe if you want a bigger batch to feed more hungry mouths.

These 4-ingredient almond cookies are made up of:

  • Ground oats
  • Almond butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Dark chocolate, and that’s it!

The dark chocolate is optional, but I think chocolate always makes a dessert that much nicer! Salt is always a necessary addition as far as I’m concerned when it comes to baking, but again it’s optional.
