Line cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.


Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.


Mix wet ingredients together and add to dry ingredients along with pistachios.


Add just enough water to moisten and form a sticky dough.


Knead in bowl 7 or 8 times.


Shape into 2 logs. each about 10 inches long and 1 inch high.


Bake 30 minutes, until light brown.


Cool 5 minutes and turn oven down to 325°.


Slice logs into 1/2 to 3/4 inch slices and spread apart on cookie sheet (standing up; don't lay them on their sides).


Return to oven for 20 more minutes.


Turn oven off and leave in oven for 10-20 more minutes or until suitably dry and crunchy.

Notes

I wanted a healthy but satisfying treat to accompany my afternoon cup of tea. This crunchy, wholesome cookie packs loads of flavor without a lot of fat or sugar. You can even substitute whole wheat for some or all of the flour. I like to use whole wheat pastry flour.
