ThIS cookie in a jar is one of my favorite desserts when I’m feeling lazy.
It requires no baking, is forgiving with measurements (unlike baking) and can be whipped up with a fork and ready to serve in minutes.
The hardest part is melting the butter or coconut oil. But if the laziness is extreme, you can even skip the butter and add coconut, dairy or almond milk instead.
And you don’t have to serve this no bake cookie in a mason jar. I like to because I think it looks cute. But I suggest mixing the cookie in a bowl first because it is easier to mix.
If you’re not usually a lazy person, I suggest embracing laziness when it strikes. Let it guide you to create easier ways of doing things. That’s how I came up with this little short cut recipe.
And if you are feeling playful, you can mold the dough into little balls (or as my mom says…bawls). I made chocolate chip cranberry balls, and enjoyed lazily popping them into my mouth.
1 cup of almond flour (blanched almond flour works best and taste the most like cookie dough)
1 to 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or raw honey (depending on how sweet you like it) I used 1 tablespoon for mine.
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of melted coconut oil or butter (you can replace this with 1 to 2 Tablespoons of dairy or non dairy milk.
Optional mix ins: 1 Table spoon of each: chocolate chips, dried cranberries and tiny chunks of coconut butter (pulverized coconut flesh). You can also add nuts, like pistachios. Or fresh berries. Feel free to throw in whatever you have on hand. You can also leave the mix ins out and simply sprinkle with cinnamon and cardamon or pumpkin pie spice.
Put almond flour, salt, and optional mix in into a bowl and mix.
Mix sweetener with vanilla and melted oil/butter in a separate bowl/cup.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together with a fork until they are incorporated.
It will form a cookie dough. If the mixture is too dry, add in your choice of milk, one Tablespoon at a time until it reaches the consistency you like.
If you are feeling really lazy, just ignore my instructions and mix everything together at once in any order you please.
