Savory Peanut Butter Pistachio Cookies

Who says cookies have to be sweet?! These Savory Peanut Butter Pistachio Cookies are perfect for any meal, snack, or occasion! Crumble one up on top of yogurt, pop a couple as an afternoon snack, or savor one drizzled with a little more peanut butter after dinner. 

Next week, I'm leading a No Added Sugar (or fake sugar) Challenge. No sugar, sweeteners, alternative sweeteners, sugar alcohols, or syrups of any kind for 7 days. Sugars occurring naturally in fruits, vegetables, dairy, and grains are ok... we're just focusing on added sugar. SO, when I saw the original version of this recipe from @SabrinaFitnessandNutrition on @crazyrichardspb instagram page I knew I could adapt them to be completely free of added sugar... but little did I know they'd be the perfect little savory peanut butter treat!

Savory Peanut Butter Pistachio Cookies

3/4 cup all natural creamy peanut butter (at room temp)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup roasted pistachios, crushed/chopped

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the peanut butter and egg. Fold in the pistachios. Roll into balls (about 1 Tbsp each) and arrange evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet. Using a fork, press down on each dough ball to form lines and flatten. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before eating. Enjoy!
