No-Bake Pistachio Orange Cookies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




6 cookies


  • 1/2 cup raw blanched almonds, ground finely
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted pistachios, ground finely
  • 1/3 cup GF oat flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp orange extract (depending on extract quality)
  • Top with cacao nibs (good addition to balance flavors, but not necessary)


  1. Combine ground almonds, pistachios, oat flour, and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl combine agave nectar, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and orange extract
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry, combine until a dough forms (you may have to get messy with your hands for this step!)
  4. Tear off a substantial piece of dough, roll into a ball and flatten to make a cookie shape. Repeat until dough is used up.
  5. Alternatively, you could roll out dough with a rolling pin and cut out different shapes with a cookie cutters.
  6. Top with cacao nibs if desired.
  7. Put cookies in freezer and freeze until firm.
