Orange Pistachio Greenies – They Only Sound Like Pet Snacks and Speed

Posted on
Calling a brownie made with pistachios a “greenie” seemed like a perfectly sensible thing to do, until I realized that was also the name of a popular brand of pet treats, as well as the street name for amphetamines.


Ingredients for 9 Orange Pistachio Greenies:
Wet ingredients:
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tbsp grated orange zest
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Dry ingredients:
2 cups shelled, dry-roasted pistachios (*note: mine were lightly salted, so if yours are not salted or heavily salted, please adjust the added salt in the recipe)
1/2 to 1 tsp salt to taste
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (add when you combine dry into wet ingredients) 
*Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes
For the glaze:
1 or 2 tbsp orange juice
2 tsp orange zest
enough powdered sugar to thicken
