Delicious Cookie Recipes Made with 3 Ingredients

 Not many things can compare to the smell of cookies baking in the oven. Sadly, most cookie recipes require many different ingredients and a long process before you get to enjoy that first delicious bite. However, I’ve prepared a list of 6 cookie recipes that require only 3 ingredients each.

A different take on the traditional cookie – these bars are made of nuts and dried fruits. Other than the dates, you can substitute any of the ingredients to match your preferences.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 dried fruit
  • 1 cup nuts

Preparation:

  1. Use a food processor to blend all the ingredients together.
  2. After the ingredients are fully mixed, spread the mix on a surface covered with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge for 3 hours.
  3. Once the mixture has cooled and solidified, you can take it out of the fridge and cut it into any size and shape you desire.
  4. You can try the following combos: almonds & cherries, pecans & cranberries, apples & walnuts.
