Vegan Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

This plant-powered pistachio matcha cookie is on a delicious mission to bring awareness to our climate crisis. It's a good excuse to eat another, right?! :)

A combo of coconut oil, almond butter, and vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips replaces dairy and gives these cookies the brown buttery flavor, and bursts of rich chocolate we all can't get enough of in a chocolate chip cookie, butttt...... you'll be lowering your carbon footprint significantly. (The carbon footprint conversion for this butter alternative is 1.36 g CO2-eq/g, and that for dairy butter is 11.92 g CO2-eq/g. TF, right?!)

This beauty is also naturally greenish from matcha powder! Saving our sealife and freshwater supply. (10-15% of food dyes are discharged as liquid waste into the environment, which turns toxic in concentrated quantities.)
Let's top this girl with roasted, nutty pistachios for real flavor instead of added flavoring because it tastes so much better! (I didn't have time to research added flavoring, but I'm sure info out there says it looks shady.)

These cookies don’t have all the answers and I’m not a scientist, but if you think about what’s happening on our planet on a large scale, you’ll see that we have this crazy imbalance. We’re all breathing, raising tons of animals for food, burning fossil fuels for energy, and all this is emitting gases that are not offset by our rainforests because we're cutting them down to raise more food. The outcome is a planet that is steadily increasing in temperature.
