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 so the chocolate really stands out.
  • Try to use a banana that’s on the riper side – avoid using very green bananas.
  • 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 🙂
