Healthy 1 Minute 3 Ingredient Deep Dish Cookie

First things first-

Thank you SO much to every single person who sent emails and messages in regards to yesterday’s post. It’s so comforting to know that there really is a community of amazing readers and bloggers out there. To be completely honest, this was my biggest fear with committing myself to blogging full time– The potential for relationships (through the interwebs) to suffer, but you know what? That is life. People come and go but those who stick with you through it all are the gems.

Potato gems.

Google it.

Anyway, enough mushy stuff. I don’t like that word- I ordered a pie the other week and it came with a side of mushy peas. I thought the server had given me a baby’s meal but no. It was mushy peas to pair with the pie.

FAIL WHALE.

Anyway, also mentioned in yesterday’s post, it was Juli’s birthday yesterday! I wanted to create a recipe for which screamed JULI! Fortunately for you (and unfortunately for us), you are saved from the actual recipe which screamed visually unfortunate. Cottage cheese and this cocoa powder is a combination we are both fans of, but for those who have made something similar before, know that the final result isn’t particularly complimentary. 

ANYWAY. 

Juli has been my human guinea pig for the last few months. This overnight baked oatmeal, this raspberry chocolate cake and this 4 Ingredient banana bread? Yep, Juli gave it the a-ok before it went live on here. 

Want another one to add to the list? Today’s recipe.

Thinking about it, making Juli try out the recipe and then dedicating it to her is kind of like giving someone a birthday present they already are wary of. 

FAIL WHALE, AGAIN.

Before we get into this delicious recipe, it’s Wednesday which means you need to see a full day of meals!

This is from last Wednesday

WIAW-March

Breakfast/Brunch- I woke up late so my first meal was the chicken shawarma plate with the best tahini sauce. Note to self- Get some tahini! Snack- Lifesaver Gummies which I’ve been snacking on lately, purely because the ones we had in Australia were like stones. Snack- Made a batch of this blueberry breakfast cake to freeze (as you do…). Dinner- Went over to a friend’s place where we tried this Japanese ‘Healthy Grill’. I got the chicken teriyaki on sushi rice, with lots of leaves, trees and trunks. 

Anyway, time for today’s recipe- This healthy 3 Ingredient Deep dish cookie which takes just one minute!

So this recipe came about after sharing this 3 ingredient paleo banana bread cookie recipe! It uses the same three ingredients, but without the need to turn on the oven AND it’s single serve. In the original cookie, I used almond meal, but also wanted to try it with almond meal flour. I couldn’t tell much of a difference so if you have either on hand, go for it!

Let’s talk taste and texture for a second. This Healthy 3 Ingredient Deep Dish Cookie is ridiculously soft and gooey- I dislike the latter word but can’t think of a better way to describe it. It’s like that moment when you break apart a soft baked cookie and the centre is barely cooked and uber soft? Yes, that is what it’s like. This deep dish cookie literally takes one minute to whip up (in the microwave) or around 10 minutes in the oven! It’s the perfect sweet treat or snack between meals or after dinner. It’s also suitable for those following a grain free, gluten free, vegan, paleo and dairy free lifestyle! 

HACK! If a super, more firm chewy deep dish cookie is what you are after, I’d recommend baking this beauty and checking on the texture around the 12 minute mark- Anything longer than that, you may be left with a hockey puck or Beyonce’s left shoe. 

Make this healthy 3 Ingredient Deep Dish Cookie and think of Juli when you have that first ooey, gooey bite.

Gross, I really don’t like that word.

Oven option
  1. Follow instructions as above and bake for 10-12 minutes, until just tender on the outside.

  1. Healthy.. yes! Only 1 Minute.. yes yes! And only 3 Ingredients……. YES YES YES!!! This is perfection and wonderful! I love that I don’t have to make a batch of cookies and that it’s ready so fast and did I mention how good that it looks!!!! 🙂

  2. I don’t know if there is a good substitute for ooey gooey… So it may just have to stay! It’s the word as want for a deep dish cookie!

  3. Yes- had mushy peas in Ireland and they were great!

    I’ve never had gummy lifesavers – and I love candy! May have to add those to my candy pile next time 🙂

  4. It will be a sad day when ooey gooey is no longer a word/phrase. I used the word nincompoop the other day and people did a double take. What is the world coming to?

  5. I have had mushy peas! They were pretty much a menu staple in our school cafeteria. Truth be told, I really didn’t mind them. Weird, right?
    Ooey gooey is a funny word. My mom HATES the word gooey and gets mad whenever I use it.

  6. A deep dish cookie? Say what!? Now that is an idea I can get behind. Can I have a deep dish pizza followed by a deep dish cookie? Because that would all kinds of deep dish awesome! Also, what’s wrong with gooey? I support gooey…especially when it refers to melted chocolate chips in cookies.

  7. You don’t like mushy peas? Say it isn’t so! I admit the first time I had them, I hated them, but the British culture eventually indoctrinated me.

    And of course I know what potato gems are 😉 They were a staple in my household growing up!

  8. “Gooey” and “moist”… two words that are both revolting, yet you just can’t get rid of them. As long as they are used for cookies…
    I’ve always wondered the difference between almond meal and flour. I’m happy to hear you didn’t notice a difference as I usually never remember which I actually buy.

  9. Soooo my microwave is broke. Like, it started sparking and freaking out on me and I panicked so I unplugged it and then proceeded to push it off my counter, straight into the awaiting trash can.
    Which means I need to make this in the oven. Possible? I’ll be your guinie pig.

  10. I don’t know if i would consider myself a “blogger” but just know that my support for you is deeper than this cookie 🙂 which i will be making.. also.. if you need some tahini, please text me 😉

  11. I’m actually a huge fan of mushed peas and split pea soup. I used to hate it, but I think that’s because my mom didn’t make a very good version. Now that I’ve had other kinds, it’s much better. Another great recipe for my banana obsession. Thanks Arman 🙂

  12. If you use a blender to take away the clumps of the cottage cheese, it probably would look a lot more appealing! 😀 But yes, cottage cheese clumps in a cake are always a NO-NO. I can’t believe you’d actually be served mushy peas–LOL! It’s good if it’s in a soup or if you’re a baby!
    And this recipe looks great! You never fail to make anything super easy and delicious! 🙂

  13. Mushy peas are yum! Living in the UK they are a seaside holiday staple. I have never heard of potato gems but it sounds like they might be akin to tater tots? If so, LOVE THEM. Got to be smothered in ketchup though. Ooey Gooey is a silly – yes – but great word, but maybe I only think that because I like words that make others feel a little uncomfortable 😛

  14. Everyone thinks mushy peas are a ‘thing’ in the UK – I guarentee most people hate them, why would you mush a pea anyway…
    And I don’t think we had potato gems… But we did have potato smiles! They were so good… Ah the typical 90’s freezer food win! Ha!
    And I will make this… Firstly in honour of Juli and secondly because of ooey gooey! 😛

  15. Wait, did you just say visually unfortunate food screams my name? Okay, maybe true 😛

    One cookie or 10, use me as your guinea pig whenever needed. I’ll have my fork ready to dive in anytime.
    Btw my mum made me buy my own birthday gifts, you’re just keeping up with my family tradition 😉

  16. I had saved this on facebook awhile ago, but finally tried it today. SO good! Easy and very yummy, I will definitely keep this recipe and make again. I hope you don’t mind, I shared the link back to this recipe on my healthy cooking facebook page.

  17. This recipe is ridiculous….So ridiculously tasty! Thanks for sharing. I made a double batch for me and my husband, and we both have happy tummies right now ?

  18. This looks incredible! I’ve been spending the past week going through all of your healthy desert recipes, and as I’m allergic to nuts have finally tried sunbutter as an alternative to nut butter and found that it works great! That said, can I sub the almond meal in this for regular white or wheat flour?

  19. This looks AMAZING! OMG! I have to try this ASAP 😀 I wonder if any other flour works too? The almond meal flour probably adds a really nice nutty texture and flavor though!

Have a comment? Go for it!
