Top Tips for Making 5-Ingredient Guilt-Free Elvis Cookies:

  • Take these cookies to the next level of deliciousness by adding a sprinkle of salt (the coarse type, if you have it) to the tops of each one.
  • I like using big chocolate chunks (rather than chocolate chips) so the chocolate really stands out.
  • Try to use a banana that’s on the riper side, if possible.
  • When buying peanut butter, look for a type that only has peanuts and salt listed on the ingredient label.

I really liked these. I added a pinch of Himalayan salt when they came out and they were really good! I am looking forward to trying more of your recipes because my dad just started a plant based diet to try and save his kidneys. He can’t have these but I saw so many things that he can have 🙂

Actually we calculated the potassium and phosphorus for 1 cookie and he was able to have one and liked it 🙂

So easy to make and very tasty! Mine were still a little “gooey” in texture after baking . . . Not sure if I should have baked longer, or if that was what should have been expected. Will definitely bake these again.

How many calories are in your Elvis cookies?

My guess would be about 100! Thankfully, each ingredient is a high quality, healthy one, which is always my top focus.
