Pistachio oat cookies are as easy to make as pulling out your high speed blender or food processor. Put everything into the bowl, whir it up, form into patties and wham, bam, you’ve got cookies ma’am!

No Bake Pistachio Oat Cookies
Healthy can be delicious! These steel cut oatmeal based cookies are packed with pistachios, dried fruit, fiber, and a touch of sweetness. A cookie a day keeps the doctor away!
- 1 cup steel cut oatmeal (I used Bob's Red Mill)
- 1 cup shelled roasted pistachios (unsalted, if possible)
- 2/3 cup flax meal (make your own by blending 1/2 cup flax seeds in a coffee grinder until they become powder. Measure after grinding)
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Place steel cut oats into a bowl and cover with water. Allow to soak for one hour, then drain water and use hands to squeeze excess moisture from the oats.
- Place all ingredients into a high speed blender or the bowl of a food processor. Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes, or until everything is well incorporated.
- Use a kitchen scale to divide mixture into 1 ounce portions (about the size of a walnut), or measure 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie.
- Flatten each portion into the shape of a round cookie. Eat immediately or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate. When well covered, these should stay fresh for a couple of weeks.
