Servings: 24 cookies (large)


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut oil or soft butter
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 5 oz dark chocolate chips you can sub semi-sweet if that's all you have
  • 1 cup chopped and shelled pistachios


  • Preheat oven to 350degrees. 
  • Mix flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat coconut oil and brown sugar together for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and beat for about 2 more minutes.
  • Slowly beat in the dry ingredients just until combined.
  • With a wooden spoon or spatula, stir in the chocolate chips and pistachio's.
  • Put about 1.5 inch round balls of dough on to a greased cookie sheet. (NOTE-I totally just use two spoons and eye-ball this. You perfectionist can measure and form proper balls, if you like.)
  • Sprinkle the tops with sea salt and gently press the balls down with greased fingers a bit to give them a flat top. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes or until they look set and the edges look dry.
