3 Easy Recipes With 3 Ingredients Or Less

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I like to keep my recipes simple. My most popular post is my recipe for Easy No-Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls, and a search for “easy” on this blog will pull up several other recipe posts. I am always interested when I come across easy recipes on the internet, but I also am skeptical and worry that my family won’t fall for the shortcuts. Recently I tried three ridiculously easy recipes with 3 ingredients or less, and they all passed the family taste test.

3 Easy Recipes With 3 Ingredients Or Less

Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookies

The first recipe I tried I call Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookies. I’ve seen several variations of this recipe, but I love raisins in my oatmeal, so I put raisins in my oatmeal banana breakfast cookies.

Recipes With Three Ingredients Or Less

~ 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
~ 1 cup old fashioned oats
~ 1/3 cup raisins
~ 1 tsp cinnamon
(oops! does that count as a 4th ingredient?)

Preheat oven to 350F; prepare baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Blend bananas, oatmeal and cinnamon; stir in raisins.
Form into cookie shapes on prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.

Pufferfish Roasted Cauliflower

The next recipe is what Carla (or Tornado?) calls Pufferfish.

Roasted Cauliflower

~ 1 head cauliflower
~ olive oil
~ salt

Preheat oven to 450F; prepare baking sheet lined with foil.
Lightly baste cauliflower with olive oil, sprinkle with salt.
Bake at 450F for about 45 minutes.

Pumpkin Brownies

I have a good from-scratch recipe for pumpkin brownies, but this recipe on Family Fresh Meals convinced me to try it using brownie mix.

Recipes With 3 Ingredients Or Less

~ 1 package brownie mix (19 oz size)
~ 1 can pumpkin  (15 oz)

Preheat oven to 350F; lightly coat glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Blend brownie mix and pumpkin until thoroughly mixed.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes.

These recipes couldn’t be easier, and they all  turned out well enough to make again.

Do you have any ridiculously easy recipes?

What would you put in your breakfast cookies?
Raisins? Chocolate Chips? Nuts?

All of the above?

None of the above?

  2. Oh, I forgot about those oatmeal cookies! I used to make them often when L was smaller as a “treat”. I need to try the pumpkin brownies, too!

  3. Those banana oatmeal cookies look great! Minus the raisins. I’m not a fan. But, some chocolate chips would be perfect in my book. I’ve done the pumpkin brownie recipe – pretty good.

    I like banana, chocolate, and chocolate chips together so I wold probably try to make a breakfast cookie with those ingredients! With all the life juggling we do, it is really a priority to keep things simple and easy. I love making things with non traditional items like pumpkin in brownies.
