Peanut Butter Honey Cookie Recipe

For a natural twist on a classic cookie, make a peanut-butter honey cookie recipe for cookies made with honey instead of sugar.

By Hannah McClure  Raw honey has quickly become one of my favorite sweet treats and herbal remedies. From the process of installing a new hive to harvesting the honey and all that falls between, it’s easy to fall in love with not only the process, but the honey. Of course, learning how to use honey in place of refined sugars, takes a little time. However, these peanut butter cookies are a great treat made with honey and chocolate for a flavor burst twist on a classic cookie. You can leave out the chocolate morsels for a traditional peanut butter cookie, but trust me, the chocolate morsels make this nutty cookie a little extra yummy! 

Let’s Bake! 

  • 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons softened butter 
  • 1 cup peanut butter  
  • 1 cup raw honey 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2-1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour  (to convert to gluten-free, use 2-1/4 cups, 1 to 1 gluten-free baking flour) 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  
  • 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels  
  1. In a medium bowl, mix softened butter until smooth and creamy. 
  2. Add in peanut butter, honey, eggs, and vanilla extract and mix until blended.  
  3. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until well blended.  
  4. Hand-stir in chocolate morsels. 
  5. Bake tablespoon-sized cookie dough balls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet at 350 degrees F for 7 to 8 minutes.   

Allow to cool before enjoying these delicious honey peanut butter cookies.

  1. Hi Peggy. We apologize for the incomplete instructions. The instructions are now updated. You will see that you add the peanut butter in the second step.

    Thank you so much for pointing this out,
