Choc Chip Pistachio Cookies

This is Round 2 of my cookie fail from last week that saw me eating everything with “cookie crumbs” pretending that they were a purposeful ingredient, not the actual DisasterChef moment they were. These were delicious, though I still think there is room for improvement so this recipe might get updated when I next make them. Loaded with good fats and protein, these cookies will definitely beat the 3pm sweet craving without peaking your insulin off the charts and giving you diabetes.

1 cup almond meal
1 tbs ground flaxseed
1 cup coconut butter (or nut butter)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbs lucuma powder (optional)
Stevia to taste (or 1/4 cup raw honey/maple syrup)
1/4 cup chopped pistachios
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs or dark choc chips

Preheat oven to 150C (fan forced). Blend all ingredients except pistachios & cacao nibs in the food processor until combined. Stir through the cacao nibs & pistachio. Shape into “cookies” and pop on a baking paper lined tray. Bake for about 15-20 mins and allow to cool completely before removing from tray.

Before they went in the oven….

    These look amazing – I’m making them this weekend! Judging by the photo does the recipe makes around 20 cookies?

  4. Thanks Cara! It actually makes about 30 cookies that size…. I did eat about 5 cookies worth of dough and there was a few on another tray… πŸ˜‰

  5. Cara says:

    Excellent! I though those measurements would make more than 20 – looking forward to tasting them!

  6. Ah yep- if you don’t eat half the dough it makes plenty πŸ˜‰ They freeze really well too.
