  • 3 Tbsp pistachios raw, peeled
  • 6 Tbsp rice flour white
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp cashew butter creamy
  • 1/4 Tsp almond extract
  • 1/8 Tsp salt optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Chop the pistachios either with a knife or a food processor. Place the chopped pistachios in a shallow bowl or plate and then set aside.
  • Add all of the other ingredients to the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture begins to form a ball.
  • Wet hands slightly. Remove the cookie dough from the processor and shape into a ball with your hands.
  • Divide the cookie dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and then flatten with your fingers or the palm of your hand to form a flat cookie shape.
  • Press and roll each cookie piece into the chopped pistachio nuts to coat.
  • Place the pistachio cookies onto the prepared baking tray.
  • Bake the pistachio cookies for about 8 to 9 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.
