BBQ Chicken-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
3-Ingredient Healthy Recipes

A common barrier to cooking is seeing a mouthwatering recipe online, only to click and discover it requires double-digit ingredients, two of which you’ve never heard of. It doesn’t have to be that way. Delicious, healthy dishes can be crafted from just three ingredients. Skeptical? Just check out this list and get cooking!

Note: Olive oil, salt, and pepper don’t count as any of the three ingredients since most people have those on hand all the time (along with beer, of course).

1. 3-Ingredient Pancakes

Nope, these flapjacks don’t call for boxed mix! Appropriate for paleo and gluten-free eaters, free of added sugars, and spiked with cinnamon, you’ll never used premade mix again.

2. Energy Bars

Let the food processor do all the work to make these soft, chewy treats reminiscent of Larabars. Switch up the nuts and dried fruit (or try fun ingredients like chocolate chips, crystalized ginger, or coconut) to ensure breakfast (or a snack) is never boring.

3. Sweet Potato Spinach Breakfast Hash

7. Avocado Breakfast Bake

The idea of baking something already soft seems odd—until you eat it and realize how amazing warm, creamy avocado is. Especially when topped with an egg and bacon.

8. Microwave 1-Minute Ham and Egg Breakfast Bowl

Put ham, egg, and cheese in a bowl, and what do you get? This super speedy and super tasty meal that anyone can make.

9. Avocado Smoothie

This drink gets nice and thick using avocado and banana. Use more or less milk to create your desired consistency, whether that’s drink-through-a-straw or eat-with-a-spoon.
