Pistachio Croissants (the #healthy edit!)

I love a croissant moment, but this beautiful flaky pastry can be a little rich when it comes with a heavy chocolate or almond filling. I wanted to feel rich and fabulous without feeling like I need to have a nap afterwards, so I mixed it up with Nuttinosh! Swapping for pistachio butter keeps the lightness of the pastry intact, and adds a wonderful sweet and salty flavor. Not only that, but pistachios are a powerful protein that can power us through the day rather than slow us down.

I present to you: Pistachio Croissants, the #healthy edit.


I also use a hint of cinnamon/cardamom in this recipe for a warming flavor factor that pairs great with the sweetness of the pastry-pistachio combo. 


Let’s break it down! Here’s What You Need For Your Croissants:

  • Croissant / Crescent Roll Dough.
        • This is for the base of our croissants, made easy! As a mom, this is a freezer favorite for quick pastry treats.
  • Nuttinosh Pistachio Butter.
        • Nuttinosh makes a great filling for our croissants. I usually use the Roasted, but you can put a twist on the recipe using the Sea Salt or Pistachio Cashew flavors.
  • Whole pistachio nuts.
        • We’ll be adding these in with our filling for a bit of a crunch factor.
  • Honey.
        • For a touch of sweetness! Honey balances out the saltiness of the pistachios. If you do not use honey, you can substitute with agave nectar for a vegan edit.
  • Ground or crushed pistachio nuts.
        • Double pistachios for the win! The ground pistachio will be a part of our topping.
  • Ground cardamom.
      • Using cardamom adds a wonderful warmth to the topping of our croissants. If you do not have cardamom on hand, cinnamon can make a great substitute as well!

    I absolutely love this recipe, and am so excited to share it. It’s the perfect hack for entertaining friends or family that feels luxurious, and can come together in less than 30 minutes!
