Chewy, tender and soft honey-sweetened peanut butter cookies.


  • 1 ½ cups flour*
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place parchment paper or silpat on a large baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt until combined.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the peanut butter, honey and melted butter on medium, until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and whip until combined.
  4. Slowly add portions of the dry ingredients, until just combined. Fold in dark chocolate chips (if using).
  5. Use an ice cream or cookie scoop and place dollops of batter onto the baking sheet, about 1-2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned but still soft.


For the flour: You can use any good baking flour, such as whole wheat pastry, whole wheat, whole wheat white flour, all-purpose, gluten free all-purpose or oat flours.

Cooking Tip: Refrigerate cookies for 30 minutes before baking for a fluffier cookie.
