  1. They aren’t overly sweet–just right.
    I’m a giant fan of the dark chocolate, pistachio, and sea salt combo because it hits the sweet and salty AND nutritional combo. Okay, I might be stretching the nutrition point a bit. But I do omit the butter in favor of coconut oil and dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet. And, of course, all of those pistachios are good for you. So yeah, nutritious.

    Chocolate Pistachio Cookies are easy to make, sweet AND salty, and the perfect not-too-sweet cookie recipe!

  2. They are easy to make.
    Mix and bake. The end. The hardest part is shelling the pistachios if you don’t find pre-shelled ones. Which I grab from Amazon to make my life easier. Or, you get your kid to do them…

    Katie and her adorableness.

  3. They are grown-up.
    Kids aren’t going to like them as much as traditional chocolate chip cookies. This is a good thing, in my opinion. Grown-ups deserve cookies too. Mom’s deserve cookies that don’t get devoured immediately after being taken out of the oven. These might actually make it to the freezer for girl’s night. If you don’t eat them all yourself, first.

These cookies are a perfect blend of comfort food classics and “newbie” healthy ingredients (is that even a thing ;)). Kind of like I smooshed Pizza and Kale together and made a new and DELICIOUS thing that everyone wants to eat.

Except not Pizza and Kale. 

You’ll love these!
