Whole wheat pistachio cookies with oats-a crisp cookie full of Pistachio flavor. I made these few months back and my husband and kids went crazy for them. I thought these would be an “adult cookie.” Something to enjoy with a cup of tea but my kids enjoyed them as much as we enjoyed them. These go good with tea, coffee, and milk. These Whole Wheat Pistachio cookies with oats also turned out to be a favorite with my kids(Doing my happy dance ;) ). They fought over who would get to take them to their playdates to share with friends.These are not your average Pistachio cookies. They are loaded with Pistachios of course :P and uses whole wheat instead of All purpose flour and the goodness of oats what else can i ask in cookies??. You are sure to enjoy them as much as we do!

The house smelled amazing while these cookies baked. We couldn’t wait to give them a try. Both my boys R2 & R3 had a really hard time controlling themselves around these cookies. I gave most of them away to my friends so we didn’t sit around the house eating them all day (because we totally would have).
