Chocolate Chip Pistachio Cookies

15 May

P1100796 labeled

Ingredients (makes 1 dozen):

  • 2 Cups quinoa flakes
  • 1 Cup pistachio nuts, shells removed
  • 10 oz dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Cup non-dairy milk + more as needed
  • 1/4 Cup raw agave nectar
  • 1/4 Cup raw sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons apple sauce


Theses sweet and salty cookies are slow baking to ensure a soft, chewy consistency.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In your food processor (or blender), add your pistachio nuts and blend until they are diced.  In a large mixing bowl add your chopped nuts, quinoa flakes, chocolate chips, non-dairy milk, apple sauce, and stir until fully incorporated.  If your batter is a little dry add 1 Tablespoon of non-dairy milk at a time.  P1100774 P1100777 P1100779
  2. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon 1 Tablespoon drop per cookie.  I was in the mood for large cookies so I made 6 5-inch (big-girl/boy) cookies.  Pop them in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the tops are golden.P1100790

    could you replace the pistachios with cashews or peanuts, and the quinoa flakes with oats?

      Great question! Yes! You can certainly replace the quinoa flakes with oats and use diced cashews OR peanuts in replace of the pistachio nuts.
