Chocolate And Pistachio Oat Cookies | Vegan

4.19.2022

These quick and easy chocolate and pistachio oat cookies are the perfect healthier alternative if you want to do some baking and fancy a little treat. I love this flavour combination as the sweetness from the chocolate is so delicious paired with the saltiness from the pistachios! I also added my favourite vegan protein powder from Unicorn Superfoods into these cookies for an extra protein boost!

This recipe uses minimal ingredients so you may already have these ingredients at home!
