Pistachio Gluten Free Cookies Recipe

Pistachio Gluten Free Cookies – RECIPE

Hey Mamas,

Pistachio Gluten Free Cookies anyone?

I’ve taken bits from other recipes and melded them into the most moist, wholesome homemade cookies ever!

Best of all, they are gluten free, loaded with yummy and pretty pistachios. Plus, you get the beauty benefits and delicious texture of oatmeal.

Who’s ready to dunk these babies into some almond milk? Today is World Pistachio Day, after all.

Oatmeal & Pistachio Gluten Free Cookies

Ingredients

Makes 1-2 dozen depending on the desired size of cookies.

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup raw organic sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup pistachio nuts
  • ¼ cup water

Tolders Baking Pistachio Gluten Free Cookies

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together on medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and mix on low/medium to combine. Mix in the mashed banana and 1/4 cup of water, until incorporated.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until combined. Add the pistachios and oats, mixing briefly.
  5. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a tablespoon to scoop out 2-inch dough balls, placing them about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake until just golden on top, about 10 minutes. Cool on the sheet for 10 minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Drink Wine Day – The Innovation

Pure Wine The Wand – Don’t want a headache after your glass (or three) of wine? Pop this wand into your glass, before you’re ready to drink, and it will absorb the histamines and sulfite preservatives from your wine. This helps alleviate headaches and congestion, as well as enhance the taste through rapid aeration. Okay, that last bit is just for my real wine-savvy mamas. I lifted it from a press release. #AlwaysHonest #AlwaysDrinkingWine

Drink Wine Day – The Hygge Life

The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living – I couldn’t help picking up Meik Wiking’s book on all-things hygge. I’m already in a very grateful, happy place in my life, but I love how this tiny book is loaded with adorable tips, recipes, happiness perspectives and wellness advice. #ImWithTheDanes

Drink Wine Day – The Vessel

LifeFactory Wine Glasses – Because sometimes you just need to drink while the kids are still awake … Silcone sleeves protect the glass if you accidently spill it with your elbow while running to save your kids, who are about to  go all mosh-pit off your living room couch. #DrinkAnyTime

Drink Wine Day – The Noshing

Alter Eco Organic Velvet Truffles – Chocolates that are made with love – organic, fair trade, gluten-free, carbon-neutral product – and taste divine.  #NoSharingWithKids

Cabot Creamery Muenster Cheese – If you’re lactose sensitive (like me) or full-on lactose intolerant, this lactose-free cheese is the creamy ticket for a decadent night at home. #CheesyIsGood

Drink Wine Day – The Vino

Justin Vineyards 2015 Sunny’s Block – I’m no sommelier, but I like what I like. I very much like this Orange Muscat which looks, tastes and smells bountiful. This isn’t sugar in a bottle, like many Muscat. Sunny’s Block has layers of peachy, orange goodness. Just drink, don’t overthink! How’s that for wine philosophy? #InVinoITrust
