If you’re a fan of pistachios, these keto pistachio cookies are calling your name.  Unlike other pistachio cookie recipes, these low-carb cookies use only natural ingredients, so no artificial pudding mix used here. Keto Pistachio cookie frosting

This ensures that these cookies are both grain-free and keto-friendly. Plus it allows for the pistachios to be the star, as they should be. 

They have a soft-baked texture with the pistachios adding the perfect amount of crunch. 

I love the pale green color they have, making them a festive choice for the holidays, think how well-received these will be on Christmas, Easter and of course St. Patrick Day.

However, the fact that it’s also a simple and fuss-free recipe makes them a welcome treat all year round.
