Apple and Nut Drop Cookies

1 c. almond butter

1/2 c. oatmeal

3 T. flax seed

1/3 c. shelled pistachios

1 small apple, cored and diced (peel left on)

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/2 t. salt

2 eggs

1 t. vanilla

kosher salt for sprinkling


Mix all ingredients, except kosher salt, in a medium bowl. Drop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle each with a few grains of kosher salt.  Bake in a preheated 350* oven until puffed and browned on the edges, 12-15 minutes, switching and rotating the sheets halfway through the baking time.  Allow cookies to cool on the sheets for a couple of minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
