While sometimes it’s lovely to labour over a recipe – taking your time to weigh, sift, whisk, beat, fold… lick the bowl – there are other times when time is precious and you just want something NOW. And that’s when these 3-ingredient, 15-minute biscuits come in.
These clever cookies are mainly made up of ground granola, which saves on individual ingredients and transforms granola into a sweet snack. Great for whenever you’re short of baking supplies. Use homemade or shop-bought granola. If the latter, seek one with natural ingredients, low sugar, and honey as the sweetener.
This recipe can easily be doubled to make a bigger batch.
Makes 9 small cookies
You will need:
- 125g (1 cup) granola (see notes above), any dried fruit picked out and reserved
- 1 tbsp quality smooth peanut butter or almond butter (We use Meridian)
- 1 egg
- Grease a baking tray and heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.
- Blitz up the granola until it resembles breadcrumbs, then tip into a large bowl with all of the other ingredients and a pinch of fine sea salt. Mix well until combined, then add any reserved fruit back in and give it another mix.
- Shape the cookie dough into smooth balls, then flatten slightly and lay on the baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown all over.
