Peanut Butter and Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

I spotted the recipe for these on The Salted Cookie and I have only tweaked it slightly. Honey and peanut butter and two of James’ favourite things, add cookies into the equation and we are onto a winner. I hadn’t baked any cookies for months and I was having withdrawals. I thought these would be great take-to-school(work) cookies after the lovely Christmas break. Something to brighten the mid-morning tea break.

Peanut butter honey cookies

My gosh were they dangerously tasty! I was glad James took them to work because after all the excesses of Christmas, the last thing I needed were these calling my name from the biscuit tin! I halved the original recipe and made about 12 cookies.

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway! A couple of days left.

Ingredients: (Makes about 12 medium sized cookies)

  • 115 g of butter
  • 125 g of golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla bean paste/extract
  • 1 egg
  • 85 g of peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 155 g of plain flour
  • 0.5 tsp of baking soda
  • 0.25 tsp of salt
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease/line a couple of baking trays.
  2. Using an electric whisk/mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg.
  3. Mix in the peanut butter and honey.
  4. Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt.
  5. Fold in the chocolate with a spatula.
  6. Scoop out the mixture into blobs (technical term), that are evenly spaced, on to your baking trays.
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until a light gold colour.
  8. Leave them on the trays to cool for ten minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
  9. Allow them to cool completely, if you can wait that long!
  10. Eat and enjoy!
