A 1 bowl cookie recipe

Don’t you love it when you find a recipe that only requires one bowl? While I love making desserts at home I always hate the clean-up. I have actually given up making a few recipes because the thought of having to clean up the baking mess far outweighs the snack sometimes! I know all you tired mama’s out there can relate!

Just picture me sitting there on a Sunday morning sipping my coffee and trying to relax after waking up 3 times with one (or usually more than one) of my kids the night before. Do you really think dishes are a part of that morning!!

So I am always happy to share any 1 bowl recipe I make with you guys. So you can get out of the kitchen and actually enjoy the snack with your family!

Not another chocolate chip cookie recipe!

These cardamom tangerine cookies were another happy accident actually. I have a lot of those, to be honest. Being creative and taking risks in the kitchen is an important part of learning to cook and create new things!

The story behind these cookies really come from the fact that I was craving a cookie but sick of the same old chocolate chip cookie recipe. So I decided to try to create something different with our usual cookie recipe.

I knew I still had to add chocolate chips. I am convinced my kids to think that any cookie without chocolate is a muffin, lol! But I was not sure how they would like the cardamom spice. The spice itself is floral and almost sweet so it does go well with desserts. And to my surprise they loved them! We made them twice in a row and I had to bake a second batch to photograph hahaha.

OH, one tip, do NOT add in too much tangerine or pulp otherwise the cookies will turn out bitter!

    Just made these and tried them. I realized after I mixed the dry, that I didn’t have any oranges so I used 100% pineapple juice from the can. I also used 1/2 cup more flour than is said because the batter was very wet and definitely wouldn’t hold a shape. No matter! They were delicious!! More like a muffin cookie but that’s ok:) I couldn’t believe there was no butter or oil. What a great healthy sweet treat for the kids and me🥰

    • Thank you for your feedback! This is so great to hear that you enjoyed them! I love that you mixed in pineapple juice as well! I will have to try that myself :0)
