Gluten-Free Easy Pistachio Cookies Recipe

Easy Gluten Free Pistachio Cookies Recipe


1 box Kinnikinnick gluten free white cake mix
1 box instant pistachio pudding mix
2 large eggs
½ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups chopped, roasted and salted pistachios


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

In the bowl of a mixer fitter with the whisk attachment, combine the cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in the pistachios.

Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets using a small ice cream scoop, spacing an inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set and just starting to brown around the edges. Let cool.


Makes 2-3 dozen, depending on size

I want to try these but what pistachio pudding mix is gluten free?

Hi Taylor, Jell-O pudding mixes are gluten-free (in the U.S.). As far as I know, all flavors are, but double check the package just to be sure. I used their pistachio pudding mix in these.
