Honey- Peanutbutter Cookies

The other day we realized how much honey we had (nearly a gallon in various containers in our hutch and pantry) so I’ve been searching the internet for recipes to help us cut down on our stock. Watch for a few more honey-using recipes in the coming weeks.

First up, Honey-Peanutbutter cookies, from somewhere on the internet. These no-sugar cookies got a “yum!” from the boys. They are really easy to make and we almost always have the ingredients on hand.

  • 1 C peanut butter (we used creamy)
  • 1 C honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 C flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream peanut butter and honey together in large bowl. Stir in egg and vanilla.
  3. Sift together soda, flour and salt, and stir into peanut butter mixture until just combined.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto oiled cookie sheets. mash each cookie slightly with the back of a fork, wetting the fork frequently to prevent sticking.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until they turn golden brown on the rims.

Makes 2-3 doz.

You can make either of these doughs into refrigerator cookies– form dough into a cylinder, wrap and refrigerate, slicing off what you need to make smaller batches.

  1. Does “cream peanut butter and honey together” mean mix them with an electric mixer? Sorry, I’m kind of a remedial baker.

    1. Think of it like when you “cream butter & sugar” mix it together really well until it has a lovely creamy, slightly fluffy consistency. You could do it by hand, but it’ll take a while! 🙂
