  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shelled pistachios divided
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • Preheat your oven to 325 F.
  • In a small saucepan on low heat, melt the butter and chocolate chips.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in honey, vanilla and salt.
  • While the chocolate mixture cools, blend one cup of the pistachios in a powerful blender  (Blendtec or Vitamix) until you have pistachio butter. Try to stop blending just when it turns into a paste and before too much oil is released. 
    If you do not have a powerful blender , you can use a food processor and process until you get a fine powder. The resulting brownie will not be fudgy, but more cakey, with pistachio morsels. Fret not, it will still be delicious!
  • Mix the eggs and baking powder into the cooled melted chocolate, then add in the pistachio butter.
  • Transfer this mixture to a buttered 8" square baking dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. 
  • Chop the remaining one cup of pistachios and sprinkle over the top of the brownies.
  • Cool to room temperature before cutting and serving.
