Double Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies

Chocolatey and nutty!!

Easily two of the essential ingredients in a cookie for me! I even sold chocolate chip cookies to my classmates in third class of primary school for a short time before I discovered the profit margins just didn’t add up or else maybe my Mam got sick of me making a mess in the kitchen?? Who knows but my cookie empire didn’t last too long!

Anyway, cookies are just a lovely treat and a real crowd pleaser. You want them crunchy, crumbly, soft and full of chocolate. You should find all 4 in these Double Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies!

Makes 16 medium sized cookies.

  • 175g plain flour
  • 75g oats
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 90g desiccated coconut
  • 50g pistachios, roughly crushed
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 150g butter
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 50g honey
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped into small chunks
  1. Stir the flour, oats, cocoa powder, desiccated coconut and the pistachios (reserve 1 tbsp of the pistachios for topping the cookies) together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt the butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Add baking soda and stir continuously until it blooms and turns a caramel colour for about 30 seconds. 
  3. Add the hot mix to the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir together until no flour remains.
  5. Shape the cookie dough into a sausage like roll on a sheet of parchment and cover in cling film and place into the fridge.
  6. When ready to bake, remove the cookie dough and heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400°F.
  7. Cut the cookie dough into even rounds – there should be 16 in total. Make them smaller as you like.
  8. Spread the cookies onto 2 lined baking trays and place the chocolate chunks on top with a little salt and the reserved pistachios.
  9. Bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown and the cookie edges are set.
  10. Sprinkle some flaky sea-salt over the top of the cookies as they cool!
