  • Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, oat flour, matcha powder, and salt.
  • Add the maple syrup and stir until no dry spots remain.
  • Mix the pistachios in, if using, until they’re evenly distributed. The dough will be crumbly.
  • Scoop dough by rounded tablespoons (about 21g dough per scoop), roll into balls, place the balls on the parchment-lined baking sheet, and flatten to ½ inch thick (about 2 inch diameter). If dough sticks to your hands, you can wet them slightly before handling the dough, or use the bottom of a glass or measuring cup to flatten the balls.
  • Bake the cookies for 12 minutes. Let them cool on the pan for 10 minutes before handling them.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week, refrigerated for up to 10 days, or frozen for up to 2 months. The cookies might become slightly chewy after being stored, but will still be delicious.
