Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 0 1/2 cup Dry Roasted Pistachio Nuts (Without Salt Added)
  • 0 1/4 cup, dry, yields Oatmeal
  • 0 1/3 cup Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 0 1/3 cup Whole Grain Wheat Flour
  • 0 1/3 cup Whole Grain Soy Flour
  • 0 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 0 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with oil spray.
  2. Process pistachios, oatmeal, sugar substitute, flours, salt and baking powder in a food processor until nuts and oatmeal are finely ground, about 1 minute. Add butter, egg and vanilla processing until combined, about 15 seconds, scraping down sides if necessary. Chill dough for 15 minutes, until firm.
  3. Roll dough into 24 balls and place on prepared sheet. Flatten with palm of hand to about 1/8 thick. Bake cookies until bottoms and edges are deep golden, 14-16 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet 1 minute before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
